On August 12th 2017 Ladybaby will play the fourth in their “two-man” live series. This gig is a little different because they will be supported by Hello Sleepwalkers, an alternative rock band from Okinawa. It’s a little unusual to see idols and live bands together. However, Ladybaby occasionally play with a live backing band, and Rei Kuromiya has her own rock band Brats.
They always put on a long setlist for these gigs, and they are popular and great fun. If you’re going to be in Japan around the time of the Tokyo Idol Festival then this is a recommended gig.
When: August 12th 2017. Doors Open: 16:45. Start: 17:30.
Where: Shibuya WWW X, Tokyo (map). Note that this is the wwwX venue, not the www venue next door.
Tickets: 4000 yen, plus an additional 500 yen for a drink ticket on entry.
Entry will probably be by ticket number (ask people in the queue their number to find your place).
As long as the show doesn’t sell out in advance, then tickets will be available at the venue on the day. Get them early since the last show sold out of day tickets by midday.
Advance tickets are available at Lawson Ticket. This site is in Japanese, but it is usable with automatic translation (I use Chrome) and accepts foreign credit cards. To register you need a Japanese address – use any address (e.g. address of a hotel) written in Japanese – don’t worry you won’t use it. Enter your normal mobile number, it is needed to pick up tickets. IMPORTANT: When ordering the ticket select “Collection over the counter” instead of delivery. After paying you get a page with a code number and your mobile number. Take a memo or print it out. When in Japan, use a “Loppi” machine in a Lawson store to select the tickets – you type in the numbers you got when ordering and it gives you a slip. Hand over the slip at the counter and you will get your tickets.
If you won’t have anyone who can read Japanese with you in Japan then make sure you read up on which options to select on the Loppi machine before ordering. See this page for more information (the advice about buying tickets is up-to-date and correct. The site also offers a proxy purchasing service but I cannot vouch for it as I have never used it).
