Well, gang, Guso Drop may be on its last legs as a project, but the show was definitely still going on, at least in terms of their ZEPP Tokyo show last night. I was going to just let it ride on out into the sunset, but, looking through Twitter and YouTube, I also wanted to be able to memorialize it to some extent.
A ZEPP show is a big deal! Q’ulle, who legitimately tour internationally and have many many more followers than Guso Drop, have a tough time selling out ZEPP performances. They’re large venues, capacity in the low thousands, and they cost a lot to book and require a host of other incidental expenses (gear, etc.) that you, Idol Manager, might not face in other clubs, or at least not to the same extent.
So, for posterity, here’s some cool stuff:

偶想Drop Zepp Tokyoワンマン

Now, that place looks pretty full; the big question out there was whether a real underground group could fill a venue the size of a ZEPP, even with months of promo time, even if it were Guso Drop. It was obviously a big, ambitious, risky move — the kind of thing that could sap Daichi of whatever spare cash he had, or plunge his company into un-recoverable-from debt. So for folks who were there: Did they manage to pack the house?
