Sorry for the inconvenience to those of you who bought tickets already, and waited for our shows, but we hope that the fun has just been postponed. We’ll be back there getting even cooler than we are now, so please keep your eyes on us.”

On day 2, BAKURETSU at Shimokitazawa Flowers LOFT on Saturday 2 April, the show can be viewed on tricot’s official YouTube channel. Fans in Japan who attend this specific show in-person will be allowed to livestream from the venue to their own channels, and fans around the world can view these livestreams to get a fan’s-eye perspective of the show.
