posted on by Joseph First
Japanese metal band Dir En Grey announced that it will be streaming its Dir En Grey Uroboros at Budokan the Movie online via its Ustream channel three times this weekend. The movie, which previously screened in Japanese theaters, features the band's performance at the Nippon Budōkan arena in January of 2010.
Like in other Ustream channels, viewers will be able to chat with each other as the movie streams. The streams will begin on May 26 at 11:00 p.m. EDT, and again on May 27 at 7:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. EDT.
The members of Dir en grey announced in February that they were "suspending their musical activities due to the health issue of their vocalist, Kyo." Their previously scheduled North American tour was canceled as well.
Dir en grey performed in such anime works as Baki the Grappler, Grappler Baki Maximum Tournament, and Urayasu Tekkin Kazoku. The band previously toured 13 cities in North America last December.
