Marking the 20th anniversary of band formation as they release a new single “GOOD LUCK MY WAY” on 6/29, L’Arc～en～Ciel is broadcasting their 20th anniversary lives on 5/ 28(Sat) and 29(Sun) held at Ajinomoto Stadium, Tokyo in domestic theaters in Japan (40 theaters) and designated theaters in 6 cities around the world (Paris, London, New York, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Korea).
These special lives of 2 days are designed to reflect on the history of the band. The first day’s performance will mainly focus on the songs released during the time period from their 1st album “DUNE” released in 1993 to the album “HEART” released in 1998. The second day’s performance will include songs released during the time period from the simultaneously released albums “ark” and “ray” in 1999 to “KISS” released in 2007. These lives deserve to be called the “Best of L’Arc～en～Ciel” and the tickets were sold out as soon as the ticketing began. For those supportive fans who couldn’t purchase the tickets or can’t make it to the venues, it has been made possible for this live viewing in designated theaters.
Upon the successful completion of the world tour in 2008, L’Arc～en～Ciel had gained a lot of fans all around the world. Therefore it has also been made possible for this very first live viewing in the world for 6 designated cities around the world! This is a brand new form of live concerts where everyone around the world can enjoy the realistic sounds and images on the big screen of the actual live venue just the way those fans at the venue in Japan can.
Even after 20 years since debut, L’Arc～en～Ciel still continues to stay as a top band and is about to create yet another new legend at Ajinomoto Stadium! It has been announced that all proceeds from “20th L’Anniversary Live” will be donated to provide earthquake relief for the affected areas of the Great East Japan Earthquake. Such efforts by the artists to support the victims of the earthquake gained a lot of attention. In full respect for their action, a part of the proceeds of this live viewing project will also be donated to the fundraiser for the victims of the earthquake as well.
