Following unprecedented demand for tickets for their 20th Anniversary, ‘L’Anniversary Live’ at Ajinomoto Stadium, L’Arc~en~Ciel have hit on a novel idea to share their experience with their fans and raise a bob funds or two for those hit affected by the March 11 tsunami.

On May 28 and 29 May, the two anniversary gigs will be broadcast, not only to 40 cinemas around Japan but and to many others cinemas in 6 countries worldwide too:, in London, Paris, New York, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and South Korea!

The lives will be a showcase of the band’s career- to- date, with the first concert with featuring music from the album DUNE in 1993 to HEART in 1998, then and the second concert featuring will bring things right up to date, with music covering encompassing 10 years of L’Arc~ en~ Ciel history. The decision to take the concerts global is a reflection of their popularity abroad, particularly following the success of the 2008 world tour which took place in
Paris and New York.

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 http://lifeismerodii.blogspot.com
