For those who want to prepare themselves for the upcoming European tour of 人間椅子 (Ningen Isu), they are in luck. The Hard Rock band will stream their tour final on YouTube. The stream can be watched on Friday 13 December from 19.00 Japanese time (11.00 in Amsterdam).
The tour final will take place at Nakano Sun Plaza Hall in Tokyo and is part of the 30 year anniversary of the band. In the past, Ningen Isu shared live streams of other live shows on YouTube. These streams are not watchable anymore, as the band will put them offline after a period of at least one week.
In October, Ningen Isu announced their first European tour. The tour will take place in February 2020 in Germany and the United Kingdom. Ningen Isu, literally translated as The Human Chair, started out in 1987 with Shinji Wajima (guitars and vocal) and Ken-ichi Suzuki (bass and vocal). Drummer and vocalist Nobu Nakajima, also known as Nobu, joined Ningen Isu in 2004. In the time they have been active, they released 30 singles and 20 full-length albums. Their first tour outside Japan will coincide with the release of their ‘Best of’ 30th Anniversary album. The name came from the short story of the same name by Edogawa Rampo, released in 1924. The band has been strongly influenced by Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, Kiss, Budgie, and King Crimson. The band take topics such as hell, Buddhism, the universe, Samurai and gambling for their music.
