Hiroshima on June 18, 2016

On June 18, Hikashu performs in Hiroshima.

It happens that President Obama visits the historic city this month as well. It's the first time for a US president being there while in office. It's an epic moment.

The same thing applies to the band because it takes quite long time for them to revisit there. Last time they performed there is 25 years ago. Actually they've been contemplating to play there for years. It takes time but has succeeded to actualize it at last. Naturally the band's highly motivated and quite enthusiastic for the show and so the fans too. Certainly it'll be great.

Fukuoka Concert on June 19, 2016

Next month Hikashu pay their yearly visit to Fukuoka, the biggest city of Kyushu, an island located in southern Japan. The gig takes place at the Early Believers club on June 19.

For years, Hikashu has been visiting Kyushu for touring. Unfortunately this year they have to cancel some shows because of earthquake. But they didn't cancel the whole tour, decided to do one date instead.

It's been known that Fukuoka has a long and rich history of rock music in Japan. That means it has a great audience and some of them surely are looking forward to seeing Hikashu. So do not miss this precious opportunity.
