The popular J-rock band L'Arc-en-Ciel is traveling round the globe on its 2012 world tour, and it had planned to stop by a little venue in New York City called Madison Square Garden on March 23. It was going to play at the smaller Theater at Madison Square Garden, but they ran into a problem: demand was going to be too great for the smaller venue to accomodate all their fans. Thankfully, this is a good kind of problem to have.
Yesterday, L'Arc-en-Ciel announced that they were pushing their New York appearance back two days to March 25 so that they could hold their concert at Madison Square Garden's main venue. In doing so, they are also becoming the first Japanese band to ever headline a show at the famous arena. The show will be part of a continuation of L'Arc-en-Ciel's "20th L'Anniversary Live" tour in Japan last year and has a new album, BUTTERFLY, releasing February 8 on iTunes, so this is a great moment to make history in New York City.
Tickets go on sale here on Saturday, January 28, and are probably going to go fast. Make sure to grab some quick if you're a fan!
