25 Jan the GazettE Release Yoyogi Arena Show and UNDYING Music Video Outside of Japan
Video content from the GazettE will be made available in 58 countries from January 25, 2017. The footage includes the band’s two-hour tour finale, entitled the GazettE LIVE TOUR 15-16 DOGMATIC FINAL -shikkoku- LIVE AT 02.28 Yoyogi National Arena First Gymnasium, and their music video to latest single UNDYING. It will be the first time the content has been available outside of Japan.
the GazettE LIVE TOUR 15-16 DOGMATIC FINAL captures the visual kei group’s spectacular conclusion to last year’s DOGMATIC tour. Over 13,000 fans attended the sold-out concert at Yoyogi National Arena’s first gymnasium, one of the largest live venues in Tokyo. Over 25 songs into the set list, which featured tracks spanning a 13-year career, including latest album DOGMA played in its entirety; the dark themes of which the tour, the staging and the band’s aesthetics were stylised around.

“To fully understand DOGMA it has to be experienced live,” comments vocalist RUKI.
Also available from 25 January will be the official music video to the GazettE’s latest single UNDYING, appearing in full on the band’s new VEVO channel: http://www.vevo.com/watch/JPU981601023 (also available on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/theGazettEVEVO)
UNDYING entered the top ten of Japan’s official singles chart upon its release in May 2016 and made the top ten of a further 19 iTunes charts when it was released digitally in Europe, including number one in the UK, Finland, Italy, Sweden and Bulgaria’s metal charts. The video was previously only available to fans that purchased the physical limited edition of the single.
the GazettE tore into Tokyo’s gig circuit in 2002, and have been tearing up stages across the world ever since. In 2006 the band earned their first headline performance at the infamous Budokan, and after further huge arena shows, managed to conquer the 55,000-seater Tokyo Dome by 2010. Rarely satisfied, the GazettE continue to cover new ground, evolving their sound and expanded their worldwide activities, the latter of which has seen two DVDs documenting the band’s conquests overseas.
