CELL has had a big announcement planned for today, November 29th, for a while, but fans surely didn’t imagine it would be this kind of news.
On January 18th, 2015, CELL will play their last show at Ikebukuro EDGE and put a halt to band activities. While an official announcement hasn’t been uploaded to their OHP yet, blog entries by each of the members confirm details of the final show. Guitarist SIN left this brief comment on his official blog, translated below by yours truly:
Today, the big announcement we had at the final show of our Rin vs. CELL coupling tour was
the halt in CELL’s band activities.
I think some of you already knew one way or another…
There are 3 lives left until the end.
Please come see us with your own eyes.
The one-man show, titled 「星に願いを…」 (Hoshi ni Negai wo…) will be the band’s first show of 2015, and also their last. Tickets cost 3300yen advance, 3800yen same day. They go on sale starting December 6th.
While it’s unclear whether this is simply an activity pause or something more serious, S-T will be keeping a close eye for more details on member comments and updates.
