The live DVD is a 3-DVD set featuring footage from the July 12 performance at the Saitama Super Arena, while the drama CD RE:BORN includes guest performers such as Nana Mizuki and Jun Fukuyama.

PS: Gackt, who has been unable to shake the 400-some-odd vampire claim accidentally made earlier in his career, has finally “come out” with his actual age: 36 years old. He was born on July 4, 1973. The announcement comes along with the revalation that Gackt will be taking on his first stage role as Nemuri Kyoshiro. At a press conference on November 5, he said “I said in jest at a concert a long time ago that I was born in 1540, and that ended up getting publicized a whole lot as part of my profile, and I missed the chance to correct it. I didn’t mean to keep it hidden.” Keen-eyed Gackt fans aren’t taken by surprise by this announcement: The intro video to the Sixth Day and Seventh Night concert showed Gackt’s “headstone,” which had 1973 as his year of birth engraved on it.
