On June 12th, Ryo (HOLLOWGRAM, TAG, KEEL, ex. 9GOATS BLACK OUT) was involved in a traffic accident that put him out of commission for two shows coming up with TAG, a duo unit also featuring Kazutoshi Yokoyama. His injuries aren’t life-threatening, but he requires surgery. Here’s the official announcement on TAG’s website and a few words from Ryo (translated by yours truly):
This is news regarding our event “sculptured group” scheduled on 6/27 (Sat) at Takadanobaba CLUB PHASE.
TAG’s ryo was involved in a traffic accident on the 12th,
and has become unable to perform at the event.
He requires surgery, but it’s not anything life-threatening.
We apologize to those who were looking forward to his performance.
Instead, Yokoyama will perform a DJ-style event featuring mainly TAG’s music.
We cannot offer ticket refunds for this event.
Please give us your understanding.
*The interview booklet will be distributed as scheduled.
We apologize to all fans and staff for causing such inconvenience.
TAG Kazutoshi Yokoyama
Due to my own carelessness, I’ve become able to perform at TAG’s lives on 6/23 and 6/27. Yokoyama will perform a solo DJ-style event on both days. I sincerely apologize for causing such inconvenience. I’ll try my best to recover quickly in time for other shows and recording.
Fans who were looking forward to seeing TAG will surely be disappointed, but it seems like he’ll be able to make a full recovery soon enough. Let’s hope he recovers in time for HOLLOWGRAM‘s and KEEL‘s upcoming summer shows!
