HYDE can be seen as one of Japan’s most prolific rock artists and is known for as being the vocalist of L’Arc~en~Ciel and VAMPS. Lately he has been more active solo. This year, the rock musician will be celebrating his 20th-anniversary as a solo artist with a special two-day event. This will be celebrated with two performances on the 31st of July and the 1st of August. For these two shows, HYDE will present an orchestral production at one of Japan’s top cultural landmarks; namely at Heian Shrine in Kyoto.
The special event celebrating HYDE’s two decades as a solo artist will be broadcasted live in movie theatres across Japan and streamed live worldwide. Archive viewing of the concert will be available to fans so they can enjoy the event in their own time zones. Tickets are now on sale. The stream will be distributed by Live Viewing Japan.
HYDE made a comment video to promote this upcoming special event.
On both days, Saturday 31 July and Sunday 1 August, the performance will start at 19.00 Japanese time, that is 11.00 AM in the United Kingdom and 12.00 PM in The Netherlands. You can jump in the stream 30 minutes before the show starts. The archive for this show will be online for four days.
In April, HYDE digitally released his latest song ON MY OWN which is the ending theme of the popular TV anime MARS RED, and just announced that the celebration of the 20th-anniversary of his solo career will continue with a Japan-wide summer tour 20th Orchestra Tour HYDE ROENTGEN 2021 which was kicked off in June.
