B'z L.A. Concert to Be Streamed on Ustream
posted on by Egan Loo
The official Japanese website of the soft drink brand Pespi announced that the Ustream service will stream the "B'z Live- Gym 2011 -long time no see-" tour's final concert worldwide on Monday, July 25 at 11:00 a.m. in Japan (Sunday, July 24 at 10:00 p.m. EDT). The two-man rock band B'z will launch its first concert tour in North America in eight years on July 20, and the last concert will be in Los Angeles at Club Nokia four days later. The iPhone/Android app Nex TV and Pepsi's own website will also stream the concert in addition to Ustream.
C'mon, the new album from B'z, will go on sale in Japan on July 27. B'z performs the album's title song in "People," the second commercial for the drink Pepsi Nex; the two versions of the commercial are now streaming on Pepsi's Japanese site. (The commercial will begin airing in Japan on June 16.)
Last month, "Don't Wanna Lie," the newest Detective Conan theme song, became the 45th straight B'z single to top the chart since 1990's "Taiyō no Komachi Angel." With this single, B'z set two new records — records that the band already held — for the most number of #1 singles and the longest string of #1 singles in a row in Japan. B'z also performed other Detective Conan songs and themes for Black Jack Special: The 4 Miracles of Life, Jigoku Sensei Nube, and Shin Kyūseishu Densetsu Hokuto no Ken: Raoh-den Gekitō no Shō .
