Just this past Sunday, B’z made their first appearance on music talk show LIVE MONSTER. This marked their first occasion doing a proper sitdown interview of the sort, on which the band fielded questions from fans collected in a street survey and via e-mail. The episode is already being considered one of their best TV appearances in their history, during which they also perform new single “Uchouten” and recent hit single “Ichibu to Zenbu“, so don’t miss it!
With its first week on sale drawing to a close, it has been confirmed that “Uchouten” has become the latest B’z single to debut at the top of the Weekly Oricon Singles and Billboard Hot Singles charts in Japan. The single sold over 134,000 copies in its first week.
This extends their record of consecutive number one singles to 47 in a row, dating all the way back to the release of their first chart-topper, “Taiyou no Komachi Angel”, in June of 1990. The band will be following the release of the single with an all-new studio album entitled EPIC DAY and nationwide tour B’z LIVE-GYM 2015 -EPIC NIGHT-.
To commemorate the release of their 51st single, Tak and Koshi have as usual released a message for their fans!
The band is going to perform on Nippon TV’s show「LIVE MONSTER」for the first time. On the show, B’z are going to perform their new single「Uchouten」as well as another all-time fan favorite song. What that song may be, is unclear. The show is airing on January 18th, 2015 at 11:30PM on Nippon TV.
The second song B’z will perform on the show has been announced: It’s 「Ichibu to Zenbu」.
