Some of your favorite Visual Kei bands are jumping across the ocean for this one.
On March 30th, Taipei will be greeted by DaizyStripper, BORN, and DIV on ViSULOG’s “HYSTERIC CIRCUS Asia Circuit Vol.1″. It marks the first overseas event in HYSTERIC CIRCUS’ history; what better wait to celebrate it than with the hottest bands in the scene?
It’s all going down at THE WALL. Tickets are 2000NTD advance, 2200NTD same day. The show is already making headlines in Taipei with features on Yahoo and China Times. The Facebook page dedicated to the event has already garnered over 650 “likes” since its opening two weeks ago.
DIV in particular has been creating some buzz for themselves. Along with the establishment of their official Facebook page (featuring news in English), they have even left a video comment for the overseas show.
You could say this is perfect timing for all of the bands involved. DIV’s double release of “BUTTERFLY DREAMER” and “you” drops on February 26th, and BORN’S upcoming “THE STALIN-666-“ follows the Taipei show with an April 9th set release date. DaizyStripper is releasing their 6th full album in June after suffering the blow caused by leader and guitarist Mayu’s departure; hopefully this Taipei show will get them back on track!
Japan will also get a chance to see this performance, too. On April 5th, you can get a little taste of what Taipei was served at Ebisu LIQUIDROOM. Tickets are 4600yen advance, 5100yen same day. You can pre-order tickets between February 14th-18th.
