Holy cow, this is going to be a fun event to go to if you have tickets! 21 bands will be bringing in the New Year on December 31st at the Takadanobaba AREA, one of the prime livehouses for Visual-Kei music. The line up is extensive and impressive (the whole list is below) and doors will open at 11:15 (AM) and the live will start at 11:45. Tickets sold out completely a few weeks ago, but due to popular demand you can pick up a few extra tickets through L-Tike for a very limited time for ¥4000.

A quick word of warning, though! You MUST be 18 or older to attend this Live Event as it will go well into the night (as they will be ringing in the new year) and you’ll have to find another way of getting home after the concert as the train system will be closing at normal times. In addition, there is a special request for attendees NOT to bring large luggage into the venue, as it’s all but sold out.
