This years marks the 15th anniversary for Kishidan and to celebrate, they’re holding a live concert event called, “Kishidan Banpaku 2012 ‘Boso Rock ‘n’ Roll Olympic”. The event will take place at the Sodegaura Seaside Park in Chiba on September 16th and 17th.
Some of the acts that have already been confirmed are T.M. Rvolution, VAMPS, Koizumi Kyoko and Okamura Yasuyuki with hugely popular J-Pop songstress, Ayumi Hamasaki being the latest name to join the party. Until this event came along, the only event held in the Summer which Ayumi participated in was the a-nation event which runs every year.
Leader of Kishidan, Ayanokoji Sho, who personally requested Ayumi to take part, as such she will be performing on the second day of the event on September 17. Since meeting Ayumi in 2005 at one of Hamasaki’s a-nation events, Ayanokoji had always wanted to work with Ayumi by inviting her to one of their events. It took a while, 7 years, but now that wish is going to be realised.
DJ OZMA had the following to say about the occasion, “Is it true that Ayu-chan is participating? Woah! That’s great! Hot! You did it, Kishidan! Great job, Kishidan! It will be okay even if several tens of thousands of people come! But the event is so lavish that there wouldn’t no profit. Well, well, this is the time to do it with a bang!! From Japan’s #1 diva Hamasaki Ayumi to Japan’s #1 un-Japanese DJ OZMA, we will muster our full forces! Let’s have the world’s sweetest summer at Kishidan Banpaku!!”
While Ayumi added, “This is special event for Sho-kun and everybody. I want to help if I can. He gave me a shout and I’m very happy to accept. I think there are many people who haven’t seen us perform together. Like always, we will give our all for the performance.”
