Former LAREINE/Versailles vocalist, KAMJO recently announced plans for a World Tour to take place in 2015. This might be exciting enough on its own, but this tour isn't just any tour, it will be his 20th anniversary tour. For KAMIJO this means that he will not only be on the road performing his recent catalog of solo material, but he will also be visiting songs from his long, varied career. This will probably be the first chance for many fans outside of Japan to hear material from LAREINE or NEW SODMY live. Also, songs from the more recent supergroup, Versailles, will be present. The possibilities of song combinations can leave a fan hoping for the tour to come quickly.
The tour, titled "KAMIJO World Tour 2015 -20th ANNIVERSARY BEST", will start next February in Russia and Europe with six dates announced (pictured above) that will blend into March and take him to five countries. The middle part of the tour is still not defined, but South America will be covered as will North America by way of Los Angeles and New York. These latter dates will probably please readers of this blog most, especially this author. Unfortunately details such as date and venue have not been given. The tour wraps up back in Japan during July and August with eight dates provided. We look forward to hearing more details, and bringing them to you, as they are given. We at A-To-J Connections hope to see both KAMIJO, and the many fans, on the road soon!
