If you hear their unique melodies and edgy sounds even once, you will be captivated. The lineup includes hyde (Vocal), ken (Guitar), tetsuya (Bass), and yukihiro (Drums). Originally formed in 1991, L’Arc~Arc~en~Ciel continues to mesmerize the music scene not only in Japan but throughout the world.

Ever since their debut, it’s seemed like the band has reserved a spot on the sales charts — whatever year it is, they’ve got a hit song to match the times. In 1999, the band had the unprecedented idea to release the albums “ark” and “ray” simultaneously, resulting in sales of over 4 million units in Japan alone.

In 2011, the band celebrated their 20th anniversary with the two-night show “20th L’Anniversary LIVE” at Tokyo’s Ajinomoto Stadium to 100,000 fans. The following “20th L’Anniversary TOUR” will continue into 2012, becoming a world tour with locations including Hong Kong, Shanghai, Taipei, Bangkok, New York, London and Paris, before concluding back in Tokyo.
