B’z LIVE-GYM 2011 in North America

Posted on April 18, 2011
News

B’z is going to tour North America again, for the first time in 8 years. This is probably happening due to Tak Matsumoto winning the Grammy for “Best Pop Instrumental Album” together with guitarist Larry Carlton for their collaborative album TAKE YOUR PICK.  Tickets are going to be on sale locally, so you probably won’t be able to buy them online. B’z will tour Vancouver (Canada) on July 20th, San Francisco on July 22nd and Los Angeles on July 24th. The exact venues have yet to be announced.

The tour at a glance:

7/20 Vogue Theatre – Vancouver, Canada
Open: 7 PM Start: 8 PM
(Tickets: http://www.voguetheatre.com/AVAILABLE MAY 14 10AM)

7/22 The Fillmore – San Francisco, CA
Open: 8 PM Start: 9 PM
(Tickets: http://www.livenation.com/AVAILABLE MAY 15)

7/24 Club Nokia – Los Angeles, CA
Open: 6 PM Start: 7 PM
(Tickets: http://www.ticketmaster.com/AVAILABLE MAY 14, 10AM PDT)

Update: Word is out that there might be a livestream for the North American tour so that Japanese fans will be able to watch it as well. That means it could be livestreamed on Ustream or on NicoNico Live. Also, tickets are not available to Japanese fans through B’z Party, however they can buy a “travel package”(with ticket) to the LA performance.

When is B’z finally coming to Europe?!

Oh and here’s a snippet from the Japanese newspaper that revealed the information:

      I wish it ,too.

      REEEEALY!

      Nevertheless, I think it isn`t nessesery for B`z.

      So I don`t believe they aren`t perform in Europe.

      1. xilas64 says:

        Sorry for the mistake .
        It have to be : So I don`t believe they are perfrom here.
        It is very late, so I beg everybodys pardon.

  2. Chi says:

    omg, I wanna be there X3 Who cares that I’m from Europe, I’ll go somehow

    wait… I don’t have tickets -_-‘

    1. Tobias says:

      They’re not even on sale yet 😛

    2. Lum says:

      Probably now is cheaper to go to Japan than to North America 😛

      1. Tobias says:

        I agree… I just checked the prices for a plane trip to LA… it’s 1300€ or more.

        1. Lum says:

          Just checked, now a round trip to Tokyo in September is about 650 euro… But I admit I’d prefere to go to one of those dates, I’m sure you can get a better visual and the front row.
          Tokyo Dome is awesome but they’re always so far 🙁

  3. Odon says:

    Hey Lebon! I know Vancouver is far from where you live, but aren’t you going?

    1. Lebon14 says:

      Are you crazy?!? I live on the East coast (Prov. Quebec) and I’m jobless… paying the plane, the hotel, the ticket, etc is impossible for me. If they would have come, like, in Montreal I would have gone… for sure.

  4. felipe da silva santos says:

    AMAZING MAN! That’s is fantastic, I Know it’s a impossible dream, but is shout: B’z COME IN TO BRAZIL PLEASE.

  5. polarp says:

    Awesome!! When are the tickets gonna be on sale? Got to mark the calendar! XD

  6. Lavender says:

    WHAT. WHAT. WHAT. WHAT.

    *shriek*

    I live in Colorado and I have no idea how I’ll pay for it or get there, but I am NOT MISSING THIS. D: I can’t. I missed the last tour, I didn’t think they’d EVER come back.

    Will you be posting when tickets become available, or let us know if you hear beforehand? I’m not sure about how big the theaters are, and how fast they’ll run out. x.x Kind of a wildcard….

    THANK YOU FOR BRINGING US THIS EXCELLENT NEWS.

    1. Tobias says:

      The easiest way would be to call the venue you would like to go to and ask when the tickets are going to be available. But yeah, I’ll post it here as soon as I know something!

  7. Magnolia says:

    About 10,000 people are mobilized in three performance. An arena of the scale about 3000 people can accommodate is used for a place.

  8. Limosky says:

    dhò! Why not in Europe…I mean…i don’t say Italy but somewhere in Europe…. it’s too expensive to go to States….plz come in Europe!

  9. anjoschka178 says:

    Wow great news!
    I’m happy that they are going on concert outside japan again. And i’m happy for everybody, who can go. Have FUN :-))) And catch B’z for NetParty ^^
    Hm maybe i found around 2.000€ on the streets of germany and i can go too :-))

  10. Lesley178 says:

    Luckily i have a friend that lives outside LA! I am going to fly over and crash at her place and since she’s a big B’z fan like me we’re both going! Anyone else who goes let me know 🙂 I’d like to chat it up with other fans there!

  11. I’m definitely going 🙂 It just sucks that I moved from the west coast recently. I’m gonna try to get them to sign my copy of Negai or Magic… I wonder how much the tickets actually run

    I will be buying my tickets right on the dot May 14!

    It seems like it will be a first come, first to the pit type deal.

  13. Nayu says:

    Does anyone have an idea of how long the concert is?

    I live close to Vancouver and I definitely want to go. I missed the last NA tour also and I simply CANNOT miss this one.

    Thanks!

    1. Tobias says:

      Nobody really knows, but I think it’ll run for about 90 to 120 minutes. They usually perform about 20 songs.

  14. xilas64 says:

    Hello everybody,

    It is awesome that so many people like Bz .
    Me, too,and I wish I can be at the concert, too.Who ever is able to be there, have a great time there.
    But it is impossible for me.
    So, I want to ask, has anybody ever ordered an CD about Bz from YESASIA or something?
    I do not dare.
    Can anybody give me an answer?
    Thanks awfully
    xilas64

    1. Tobias says:

      Yes. I am a regular YesAsia customer and have never had any problems with them.
      If you don’t trust them, you can also order at CDJapan (a Japanese store). They also have PayPal. Or, if you have a credit card, you can order at Amazon.co.jp or HMV.co.jp.

      1. xilas64 says:

        Thank you very much for this information.
        I think, I will try it.

  15. kowei says:

    I ordered CDs from yesasia.com before. They are reliable. My orders arrived very fast and no damage.
    I bought the ticket for B’z concert in San Francisco. I can’t wait.

    1. xilas64 says:

      Hey kowei,
      congrats.
      Wish I can be there ,too.
      Have fun and enjoy and ,please, share about the concert(if you would like it to do)with the poor .

    I really wish they would play at least one show on the East Coast! I missed them 8 years ago as well because of them only playing the West Coast… *sad face*
