For those of you who’ve been to a Granrodeo live, or watched the videos, 「Fairy Touch」is the instrumental that Takita always (or almost always) plays. And now you can own a copy of the sexy video he made for the 「Rising Moon」CD! It features a few of the burlesque dancers from the Animelo 2015 Granrodeo performance.
I’m uncertain if there’s any region restrictions, but the download can be purchased here. You’ll need a way to pay (Credit card, web money, etc.) and an account on the site. It’s free to register.
The tour’s official site announced the goods today:
Tour dates and locations can be found here. This past week, Fo’xtails was announced as the opening act for the 2/7 Shizuoka show! There will be something special for the Valentines Day show in Hiroshima, and both the Fukuoka and Fukushima shows will have after parties (details to be announced later).
