    Important Notice from BAND-MAID Regarding the NIPPON BUDOKAN OKYU-JI

    Important Notice from BAND-MAID

     

    To all the masters and princesses who were looking forward to BAND-MAID Nippon Budokan Okyu-ji
    on February 11th, 2021. We regret to announce that we have decided to cancel the show.

     

    We are truly sorry that we will not be able to meet you all at the Nippon Budokan.
    However, we have decided that the best thing we can do now is to cancel the show.

     

    It is truly heartbreaking to see how the pandemic situation worsens day by day, threatening
    people’s health, lives, and normal daily lives. We have decided to cancel this event because
    we do not want our activities to put people in danger.

     

    We understand that this decision might bring up mixed reactions, but we sincerely hope for your understanding.

     

    When we announced Nippon Budokan exactly one year ago, we were concerned about taking on such a huge challenge.
    However, throughout the past year, we have had some restrictions on our activities due to the pandemic,
    but through your generous support, we worked hard and believed that we would make the Budokan okyu-ji happen.

     

    When we announced that we would hold our okyu-ji at the Nippon Budokan, the cheers and applause that
    rang out like a thunderclap were incredible, and we still strongly remember the joy that all the members felt.

     

    We want to perform at the Nippon Budokan again someday in the best possible condition.

     

    We have a goal to conquer the world. Although this was an important Nippon Budokan okyu-ji,
    the journey towards achieving our dream has only just begun.

     

    Even though we had to cancel many shows due to COVID-19, we found out through the online okyu-ji that
    more people worldwide are waiting for us and watching us than we could have ever imagined.

     

    Although the future is still unclear, we will continue to bring everyone joy through our music, in our own BAND-MAID way.

    We will continue to move forward toward our dreams unceasingly, and we hope that you will continue to follow us.

     

    From all of us at BAND-MAID

  • Concert Review: BAND-MAID’s First Online Concert Rocks Fans Around the World

    27.July.2020 | MUSIC

    BAND-MAID held their first ever online Serving (concert) on July 23, 2020, which was watched by Masters and Princesses (fans) across the globe who expressed their great excitement at the performance.

    Intro sound effects rang while LED lights fell on the stage as the band members stepped out to an audience-less venue. They began their set with DOMINATION, followed by their up-tempo classics Dilemma and Play. Guitarist KANAMI and bassist MISA showed off their incredible skill on their instruments as the band put on a performance that had fans feeling like they were actually there at the show.

    Before we knew it, the first part of the show had concluded. For the middle section, BAND-MAID played some ballads like glory and Rinne. Guitarist and vocalist Miku Kobato then took to the mic for some MC time. She read comments which were flooding in from fans around the world, something which is only possible with a streamed show like this. Comments were in multiple languages, including English. The official hashtag for the concert (#bandmaidokyuji) made it to 2nd place on Twitter’s trending page in Japan. It was proof of BAND-MAID’s popularity around the globe.

    Kobato carried out her signature Omajinai Time―a section of the concert performed at every show―which consists of call-and-response with the crowd of the phrases “Moe Moe” and “Kyun Kyun.” The Serving resumed with DICE as BAND-MAID dashed into the final part of the 1-hour show. The band performed FREEDOM, and lastly Blooming during which bright vivid lights lit up the stage.

     

    The members took a photo on stage while visuals appeared on the back screen. Whether BAND-MAID have an audience watching in the venue, or at home, what is certain is that they always make sure to crack up their performance to max, and then some.


    Pre-sale tickets for BAND-MAID’s upcoming concert at the Nippon Budokan in February 2021 are now on sale.
