Full Story



Top Selling Japanese Rock Band Has Released More Than 45 Singles And Shines In A Powerful 3 Hour Live Concert Film Set To Premiere In New York City On October 12th; Advance Tickets Available Now!

Los Angeles, CA, October 1, 2012 - Live Viewing Japan, a distribution company focused on bringing Japanese entertainment media to an international audience, brings a new live-concert film performance to U.S. movie theatres as it presents GLAY: STADIUM LIVE 2012 THE SUITE ROOM in OSAKA NAGAI STADIUM. The 3-hour film incorporates footage filmed during a blistering live performance by the bestselling J-rock band that took place this past summer in Osaka, Japan and attracted more than 100,000 people.

GLAY: STADIUM LIVE 2012 THE SUITE ROOM in OSAKA NAGAI STADIUM will have its U.S. theatrical premiere in New York City on Friday, October 12th at 8:30pm at the Big Cinemas Manhattan Theatre, located at 239 East 59th Street (between 2nd and 3rd Ave). Advance tickets are $20.00 and are available at: http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/279390. Additional U.S. cities will be announced shortly.

As an added incentive, the first 20 people to show up for the GLAY concert film in New York City will also receive a special commemorative GLAY notebook that was originally only given to concert goers that bought a GLAY CD at one of the band's live shows.

GLAY's original 4-hour live performance took place on July 28th and 29th and was adapted into the special 3-hour concert film, depicting the best moments of the legendary performance on July 29th and featuring many of the band's greatest hits. Additional information on this special event can be found at: http://www.liveviewing.jp/glay-screenings/.

Since their debut in 1994, GLAY has led the music scene in Japan to become one of the best-selling rock acts in the country and has also garnered a substantial worldwide following. To-date, the 4-piece band has released an astounding 45 singles and has sold more than 40 million albums in Japan alone.

"GLAY is a truly amazing band to see live and we know U.S. rock and Visual Kei fans won't want to miss this very special theatrical premiere," says Live Viewing Japan Executive Director Hiroki Kotani. "Drawing from a prolific career that spans nearly 20 years, GLAY has impressed millions with their powerful and dynamic live shows. We look forward to existing fans being captivated by the GLAY's music and also to the group finding new U.S. fans through the power of this new concert film that Live Viewing Japan is pleased to present."

The band name "GLAY" is a deliberate misspelling of the word "gray", which represents the style of music the members wanted to play; a mixture between rock (black) and pop (white). Takuro, the band's founder and leader, writes most of Glay's songs and music and is an ardent Beatles fan and the group's music is heavily influenced by English as well as American rock fans. Although GLAY primarily composes songs in the rock genre, they have also written songs in styles ranging from reggae to gospel. Due to their musical diversity, beautiful lyrics and wonderful melodies, the band has emerged as one of the most successful and well known bands in Japan, and most of Asia. The members of GLAY are also heavily involved in a variety of social and charitable causes.

GLAY is also known its massive live shows. On July 31st 1999, the band held a huge show called "GLAY EXPO '99 SURVIVAL" in Chiba, Japan that became the largest single concert event ever held in the country, attracting over 200,000 people. GLAY EXPO 2001 "GLOBAL COMMUNICATION" was held at 3 venues and presented to over 280,000 people while GLAY EXPO 2004, held at Universal Studios Japan™ drew more than 100,000.
