BAND-MAID, a name which by now should strike you with energetic exhilaration and musical admiration. This quintuple line-up of hard-rocking maids are no stranger to performing live, with a string of dates locked in for them to perform at some of Japan’s biggest rock festivals this year.
With that in mind, overseas fans can start to get excited as the band have just announced the European leg of their 2019 world tour, one which will begin this June and one whose decided theme is Gekidou, or “tumultuous.”
All shows on BAND-MAID’s 2018 world tour sold out completely. The initial European leg of their long-awaited new world tour will take them to 3 countries for 4 performances. US shows are scheduled to be announced in the near future.
BAND-MAID’s event promoter for this tour is Live Nation who have worked with some of the biggest names in music including Madonna, Lady Gaga and over 2000 other artists. They manage well over 20,000 concerts a year.
Below are comments from the members regarding the upcoming tour.
