Anime Matsuri 2007 – Live in Texas – Back-on blog summary

Back-on updated their official blog – Back-on Reportwith the picture below saying how much they enjoyed being in Texas (at Anime Matsuri, Houston) It all started with Chain receiving exposure through Air Gear, and then a letter arriving to invite them to Texas. It’s a lovely picture taken with the crowd and you can click on the picture itself to get the original size.

Back-on Concert

Teeda also posted in his blog (in fact, he was the most active in updating on a daily basis :D) where I think he said he was surprised at receiving such a warm welcome in America (which he now really likes!) Teeda noted the fact that alot of cute girls (author’s note: including Ichi, Ookami and Miyu-chan) asked him for an autograph/hugs? ^^ (author’s further note: you lucky lucky people! I so wish I was there!)

Subway logo

On the last day, the Back-on group went for dinner late at night, only to find that the restaurants weren’t open on a Sunday! Ultimately they ended up in Subway (those lucky Subway people!) and all ate a massive American-sized sandwich. The funny thing was that Gori (and someone else?) then said that he still wasn’t full, leaving Teeda and Kenji03 speechless!

Hopefully Back-on will update their blogs with even more info at a later date! They will actually be showing a video at their next show in Shibuya on May 10th 2007, with footage from the entire weekend. Fingers-crossed that they’ll post it online as well!

First picture of George R. Brown Convention Center from Back-on

Back-on have posted their first picture of the George R. Brown Convention Center, Houston, which (as regular readers will know) is the venue for Anime Matsuri. This picture was taken from a (their?) hotel room and was found on their blog, where they have promised more updates soon about the event.

Unfortunately the Anime Matsuri website is down at the moment as it has exceeded its bandwidth (neeuu!) but I’m sure the organisers will have it back up soon. In the meantime, you can still visit their official forums at MashHarder.

In the meantime, you can still find out about Back-on‘s schedule on Back-on Online, but whilst I was looking up the George R. Brown Convention Center website, I came across a little bit of information regarding the venue. According to the GRBCC website, Anime Matsuri will be utilising the:

Exhibit Hall E / General Assembly / Meeting Rooms

If you do have lots of time on your hands and want to see what the centre looks like inside, you have the option of viewing images or a 360 degree panoramic view.

This information is brought to you by a Flick who is furiously attempting to type up Gaku-Ten lyrics on time and is taking a break by surfing Anime Matsuri related sites.

Back-on to make a special appearance at Anime Matsuri’s Dance till Dawn

Since this is Back-on‘s first appearance abroad, I’m making a special effort to keep up-to-date with any news updates from Anime Matsuri. This was actually posted on March 1st 2007, but aside from headlining the main concert, Back-on will make a special appearance at this overnight event with another band called Fizz!

You can find out more about the actual dance event by clicking here, but essentially what this means is that those attending can see Back-on for two days running! Why? The dance event is on Day I (Friday), and the main concert is on Day II (Saturday).  Lucky lucky people!

About this entry

Back-on is going to America – April 2007!

The latest announcement from their official website Back-on.com : Back-on is going to America! :) They will feature as one of the main live acts of Anime Matsuri, an anime convention being held between April 27th-29th 2007, at the George R. Brown Convention Center and the Hilton Americas Hotel in Houston, Texas.

Back-on‘s live performance will feature on April 28th 2007, which is a Saturday, so ABSOLUTELY NO EXCUSE for anyone in Texas to miss out on Back-on’s FIRST EVER debut outside of Japan.

The extra bonus, of course, is that Back-on have said (if I have interpreted it correctly) that they plan to have autograph session(s) as well as hold interviews with the local media – local being, presumably, America.

Anime Matsuri‘s website introduces Back-on under their ‘Guest’ section:

After the huge success of their theme song “Chain” for the popular anime Air Gear, Back-On is performing for the first time in the United States at Anime Matsuri. The busy band is working on numerous projects and are excited to bring their music and electrifying live performance to Anime Matsuri’s Main Event. Please check out thier website at www.back-on.com for more info on this fantastic band!

Now I really wish I lived in America! Back-on have said that they will visit the UK at some point (check out the Q&A section on their website) so am really very much looking forward to it! If you are going to be at Anime Matsuri, Back-on Online would love to hear from you!
