But relax...if you're not a Fish Tank member and can't find a Fish Tank member to buy you a ticket, you can still get one of these general admission original tickets, which went onsale April 15th and will be available till June 23rd. They come with an original postcard and can be purchased through the Buck-Tick: The Climax official site.
If any of you Blog-Tickers need Cayce's help in reserving tickets, just shoot us an email. Though the details are not explicitly stated on the site, I assume that as with Buck-Tick: The Movie, seat reservations for specific showings can be made closer to the date on the websites of the movie theaters in question.
In other news, selections from Buck-Tick's forthcoming Atom Miraiha Tour DVD will be shown on the giant Yunika Vision screen in front of Seibu Shinjuku Station between April 20th and April 30th. And here's the really amazing part, guys - they'll be playing the videos of seven whole songs in their entirety. You get to watch Buck-Tick on a giant screen outside in the middle of downtown Tokyo for seven whole songs! And assuming that one of those song is "Septem Peccata Mortalia" or "Romance," you also get to see Mr. Sakurai's denuded, garter-clad thighs at about 5,000 times their actual size! Holy wow!
Edit: here's the track list, taken from Yunika Vision's website.
1. PINOA ICCHIO -躍るアトム-
2. 美 NEO Universe
3. Baby, I want you.
4. El Dorado
6. THE SEASIDE STORY
On the one hand, hats off to them for picking "El Dorado" and "Ai no Souretsu." We're busting out of our knickers here in anticipation of what Shinjuku will feel like while drenched in "Ai no Souretsu"! On the other hand, shame on whoever chose these songs for being such prudes. We really wanted to see that Attack of the 50 Foot Garter Belt.
The clips will be broadcast at 10AM, 12PM, 2PM, 4PM, 6PM, and 8PM. The segment lasts for 34 minutes. Scheduled broadcast times may be subject to change without notice. This plan is brought to you by a smartphone app, Another Track, which allows users to listen to high-fi versions of B-T songs. There's a tie-in with a Yunika Vision app called VISIONalpha and apparently you have a chance to win some surprise present, but to be honest, we have no interest in smartphone apps, so we're not going to bother to read the fine print on that one.
We are still accepting inquiries about tickets to Buck-Tick's 30th anniversary concerts. If you're sure you want to attend and sure you need our help with the tickets, drop us a line!
