With the new project of RYU (ex-OROCHI), SOMEI YOSHINO (ソメイヨシノ), the musician will debut in Europe with a show at the German convention MAG in Erfurt. The community convention for games, influencers, manga, cosplay, comics and entertainment will take place from 4 until 6 October at Erfurt Messe.
The convention was formerly known as MaGnology, but was rebranded last year as MAG. The event is filled with activities from competitions, meet & greets, panels, artist alley and more.
The performance of SOMEI YOSHINO will take place on Saturday 5 October. If this will be his only European show is unknown, but for now, we know that he will bring a guitarist with him for his performance at MAG. If there is more information, this will be shared in this article or in a new article.
It is not the first overseas concert for SOMEI YOSHINO. In February of this year, the band performed at a convention in Laos. With the start of the new music project, SOMEI YOSHINO published a music video, titled 祇園-GION-.
Maybe interesting to know: Benicco, who designed the mascot for MAG, but also designed a cover for OROCHI in the past, will attend the 2019-edition of MAG as well. She will not have her own booth at the convention, but will support the jury processes (at a distance) and there will be an exhibition of her work.
The former band of RYU, Visual Kei band OROCHI, was active for 15 years and disbanded at the end of January 2019. The band had many line-up changes and after the last changes, it was decided by the vocalist to disband OROCHI and have a ‘restart’ with a new solo project.
