Live Viewing Japan has announced they will be adding a screening of the film version of Luna Sea’s LUNA SEA For JAPAN A Promise to The Brave 2012 in Sendai performance on Friday July 5th at 7 PM at the L.A. Live Regal Cinemas just a short distance away from Anime Expo.
This concert was the charity concert that Luna Sea put together to raise money for the Japanese Red Cross in order to send aid to the 2011 Touhoku Earthquake disaster area and captures the band’s passion for the cause that they displayed during their performance. The film itself will run for 2 hours.
Luna Sea itself is a legendary band formed in 1989 and is one of the biggest names to come out of the Visual Kei movement of the 1990s. While founded by J and INORAN from their time in high school, each of the members have also gone on to be insanely famous in their own right with substantially successful solo careers in addition to their work together as a band. Their music has been a constant inspiration for many bands even coming out today and is a staple for what people consider the “band age” of the 90′s. They have played all over the world and even previously performed at the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles, CA.
This is only the latest addition in a schedule of films that will be screened at Regal Cinemas catering to the influx of Japanese music lovers that will be attending Anime Expo nearby. Live Viewing Japan has a prominent list of concert films that they will be screening at the theater throughout the weekend of Anime Expo including performances by BREAKERS, exist†trace, girugamesh, JAM Project’s The Monster’s Party, MUCC, SID, and VAMPS.
