The popular Japanese visual kei band Versailles (aka Versailles Philharmonic Quintet) played the final show of their “Chateau de Versailles” tour at NHK Hall in Tokyo this week. But the concert on December 20th 2012 was much more than just a tour grand finale. Versailles have announced that they will suspend all activity after this farewell concert so that members of the group can pursue other projects.
When a band as beloved as Versailles holds a farewell concert, fans come from far and wide to pay their respects – and to enjoy one last night of music and fun. We showed up at NHK Hall a few hours before doors opened, and there were already many Versailles fans – some in full costume – preparing for the show. We even met a group of fans (in the first photo below) who came all the way from Thailand just for this concert!
Everyone we met at Versailles’ final concert was super nice. We appreciate all of the fans who allowed us to take their pictures. If you’d like to know more about Versailles, check out their official website. Enjoy the pictures!
