Next Countdown Ends Today, Rumors, and “Seimei/Still Alive” Out Digitally;
Support Members Announced for Upcoming Tours
The latest countdown on the official B’z website will end later today and may be related to the oft-rumored 7-Eleven tie-in previously reported here. Similarly unverified rumors suggest a massive complete singles boxset is on the horizon and may be the costliest item B’z has ever released.
Next, on July 5, recent number-one single “Seimei/Still Alive” will be released on various digital platforms including the Japanese iTunes store, RecoChoku, mora, and music.jp. The single will see its live debut next month when the band hits the road on July 13 in Kumamoto for B’z SHOWCASE 2017 -B’z In Your Town-.
The support members for the band’s 2017-2018 tours have also been announced, with the familiar line-up assembled in 2011 all returning:
Drums: Shane Gaalaas
Bass: Barry Sparks
Backing Guitar: Ohga Yoshinobu
Keyboards: Takanobu Masuda
