Catch the triumphant return by one of the biggest rock groups to ever come out of Japan to the massive arena that will play host the opening and closing ceremonies of the 2020 Summer Olympics, for a massive two-day concert that will take place March 21 and 22. In response to fervent requests from the band’s U.S. audience, the second day’s concert will be presented in this special international satellite broadcast event that will bring the performance to U.S. fans only hours after it takes place.
