Following on the heels of Marui One’s closure this week, an announcement has been released regarding the closure of another veteran of the visual scene. According to a posting on the venue’s OHP, Shibuya AX will close on May 31, 2014 after 14 years of operation.
The announcement is short and sweet, and though the news has been swept up by major reporters like Yahoo! News, Natalie.mu, and ORICON, there seems to be little additional information regarding the closure. On the bright side, visual kei fans will still have several months to visit the notable venue before it ceases to be.
Shibuya AX is a mid-sized live venue opened in December 2000 which has hosted scores of popular visual kei one-mans.
