In addition, they also have another gig scheduled for this evening (May 27th 2007) as part of the *massive* Shibuya Jack event, which features 30+ artists including RIZE (Jesse is one of the organisers) and ELLEGARDEN for a dedicated evening of Rock! Back-on will be performing at Club Unity from 20:45 ~ 21:30, wrapping up the evening as the last of the 5 bands at the venue. Shibuya Jack will then continue into the night with an extensive list of DJs performing at various clubs.

To give an idea about how *large* the event really is, you can see a screenshot of the website showing a list of the sponsors:

I don’t know why I keep leaving the most important part till the last but yes, there is a video!

To promote the event, Back-on have actually recorded a greeting which is available on the Shibuya Jack Movie (Interview) page! You can also watch the 45 second clip below or on Youtube. :)
