Kuroyume is approaching their 20th anniversary since their major debut next year, but you don’t have to wait until 2014 to hear more from them!
The band has announced two lives in September, called “DIVE INTO THE KINGDOM.”
September 6th @ Zepp DiverCity Tokyo
September 14th @ Zepp Namba Osaka
Tickets are 9600yen, but you can get 1000yen cashback if you show your student ID card at the venue.
Both the date or the Tokyo show (9/6) and the ticket price (9600yen) were decided by a play on words; in Japanese, one of pronunciations of the the numbers 9 and 6 is “ku” and “ro.” This makes September 6th 「クロの日」, or “Kuro Day.”
You get more than puns for going to this show, though… because Kuroyume will be releasing a new single, “KINGDOM,” sold only at these live performances. It costs 1500yen and includes just two tracks: “KINGDOM” and “BLAND NEW LOVELESS.”
