There are not many visual kei bands in Japan more popular than the GazettE. In the 10 years since the band formed, the GazettE have worked their way to the top of their genre – consistently producing highly charting albums and selling out concerts across the country.
The GazettE’s current tour is titled “Live Tour12 -DIVISION- Groan of Diplosomia 01”, undertaken in support of the band’s sixth studio album “Division”. The final shows of the first leg of the tour were held at NHK Hall in Shibuya on November 28th and 29th, 2012.
Witnessing the dedication of GazettE fans on the streets of Harajuku over the years – and having seen the GazettE a few times ourselves (including the infamous Shinjuku Station free show that got shut down by the police) – we decided to walk over and check out the scene at NHK Hall. We were happy to meet lots of excited GazettE fans before the shows started. Most of the cosplaying fans preferred not to be photographed, but we took a few snaps of fans who didn’t mind having their pictures taken.
