The original concerts were held on July 28 and 29 at Nagai Stadium in Osaka attracting 100,000 people. The three-hour performances included several new announcements for the band. Glay will release two new singles at the end of year titled "Justice" and "Guilty," before going on a national arena tour in February 2013 and an international tour the following spring. Lastly, the band will celebrate their 20th anniversary with a "Glay Expo" in Tohoku, Japan in 2014.
Glay performed songs for the Kaikan Phrase (Sensual Phrase), Survival 2.7D, and Yamato Takeru anime, as well as for Chris Nahon and Pathé's live-action film adaptation of Mamoru Oshii and Hiroyuki Kitakubo's Blood: The Last Vampire anime. Glay also provided music for Production I.G and Mamoru Oshii's 2009 short film Je t'aime.
Group leader Takuro composed a theme song in the live-action NANA 2 film, and he and band guitarist Hisashi made cameos as crowd extras in the live-action Casshern film. The band performed concerts in California in 2008 and 2009.
