The Weekly Quickie: Kamijo, VAMPS, ADAMS, D=OUT, Dir en grey, MICRO HEAD4NS

This week, it's all about the lives!  Starting with Kamijo who announced a world tour including two US dates in LA and New York.  The tour celebrates his 20th year making music and includes music from Versailles, Lareine, and New Sodmy as well as his solo work.  Keep an eye on his homepage for dates and ticketing information.

Also just announced, VAMPS has been added to the lineup for Rockville Music Festival in Jacksonville, FL.  Rockville takes place April 25-26 and features some of the greatest hard rock acts including Marilyn Manson, Slayer, Korn, The Ministry and many many more.  Tickets are currently on sale and the sooner you get them, the cheaper they are.  I'll be there with bells on, so come find me!

ADAMS have also released the dates for the first 20 stops of their massive 30 date EU tour, SEXPLOSION.  The tour starts in February and will take them to Germany, Finland, France, Switzerland and more.  Check out their homepage for venue and ticketing information as well as the release of those last ten dates.

Kouki and Hikaru of D=OUT will be performing in Taiwan in February of next year.  There aren't a lot of details as of yet, but I suspect this to be part of Kouki's introduction as a solo artist.  Keep an eye on their homepage and we'll let you know of more details as they are released.

Dir en grey has announced their first tour of 2015.  Titled "The Unstoppable Life," it begins in April of 2015 and will include 15 stops all over Japan.  The tour will feature music from their latest album, ARCHE, which released December 10.

And, in case you didn't know already, THE MICRO HEAD4NS will be releasing their first live DVD on December 24.  The DVD will include the tour final from PARASITIC EMOTION held at Shibuya WWW on August 24 as well as backstage footage.  Sounds like a great Christmas gift to me.

And, that's the Quickie.  Rock on \m/
