Ladybaby will perform a “One-man Party” gig on October 28th 2017 called –The Battle of Tokyo-. “One-man” is what the Japanese call an event with only one artist. Ladybaby (Rei Kuromiya and Rie Kaneko) will play a long live set and there will be extensive goods sales and a chance to meet and have photos taken with the girls. This will be after their new single “Me! Me! Me!” is released so they are sure to play all three new songs. The gig is likely to sell out so getting advance tickets is advisable.
When: October 28th 2017. Doors Open: 16:30. Start: 17:30.
Where: Ebisu Liquid Room, Tokyo (map)
Tickets: 4000 yen in advance, 4500 yen on the day, 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).
If the show doesn’t sell out in advance then tickets will be available at the venue on the day. Get them early since Ladybaby live gigs often sell out.
Advance tickets will be available from September 2nd on the Lawson Ticket site, which can be used outside of Japan and accepts foreign credit cards. Advance tickets are already available at ePlus, but this site does not accept foreign credit cards so I don’t recommend it.
The Lawson ticket site is in Japanese, but it is usable with automatic translation (I use Chrome). 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).
