Upcoming concerts in Japan

16 Jul

What type of music do you like to listen to? Do you go to concerts often?

As for me, I like heavy metal music. Actually I don’t understand why anyone would listen to anything else. 😉

There are a number of great bands scheduled to play shows in Japan soon.

For example:

Linkin Park

Also, on 2011 August 31, Linkin Park will play a show in Los Angeles, California to help raise money for the victims of the March 11 earthquake in Japan.
The Japanese hard rock band B’z will be the opening act.

    I just found out that Mötley Crüe and Def Leppard will be touring Japan soon, so I added the Japan tour dates for those two bands to this post above.

    Linkin Park came here in KL and I missed it, I would love to watch Aerosmith too but they’ve yet to tour here. My eldest brother is coming over to watch Loudness perform this Sunday, hes super excited for that ..Im surprised he missed out on Iron Maiden

      I saw Aerosmith at the Tokyo Dome about ten years ago. It was a “Japan only” tour.
      A good show.

      I also saw a Loudness (Japanese heavy metal band) concert in Florida about 25 years ago.
