European Tour Update: Jupiter and NoGoD


by Diana Tome, Sarah Jones, posted November 3, 2013

Although a fresh, new band, Jupiter are striding forth like their forebears Versailles to take over the world with the announcement of their first European Tour!

The tour, “Jupiter TOUR 2014 「Classical Element」-EUROPE- will take on two locations in Germany and France. The dates are as follows:

February 7 2014 at Die Werkstatt, Cologne/Koln, Germany
February 8 2014 at Covent Garden Studio, Paris, France

However with the upside of Jupiter there is a downside in the form of a cancelled tour. NoGoD, who were due to tour across Europe in December 2013, have announced that the tour is to be cancelled. The promoter, Twisted Concerts, informed on their website that the reason for cancellation is “due to some unforeseeable production and logistical issues.” At least the assertion has been made that all tickets will be refunded.

A big supporter of old school visual rock, she believes visual kei is a lifestyle and philosophy that goes beyond the clothing and the music. With a background in headhunting and psychotherapy, Diana completed her M.A. in Psychology from I.S.P.A. in Lisbon, Portugal. She now lives and works in Japan committed to keeping the VK/V-rock flame alive.

Sarah began her journey into the world of Japanese music courtesy of L'Arc-en-Ciel back in the year 2000. Since then, she has combined a love of music and music journalism into writing for European Japanese music magazines and assisting with Japanese interest events in the UK. After graduating in Law from the University of Nottingham, she put 'the law-thing' on the backburner to dive into the live scene in Tokyo for 3 years. Sarah returned to the UK in September 2010 to do that 'law-thing' and now works for a Japanese bank in London. Her heart is always in the music and fashion in Tokyo and her life is balanced between her time in the UK and Japan. When she has time, she also blogs at
