Granrodeo will be joining an all-star lineup for day two of next year’s 20th anniversary Lantis Matsuri. Scheduled for June 22, 2019 at Makuhari Messe, day two features Granrodeo, Suzumura Kenichi, Tersashima Takuma, Ogata Megumi, Morikubo Shoutarou, Ono Daisuke, Ono Kensho, Idolmaster Side M, Minami and more!
Line is hosting the first ticket lottery, starting today and ending January 6, with results announced on January 12. Tickets will be electronic and you must have a phone with an active Line account to receive the tickets. That said, the signup process is very simple, as you just have to log in using your line account, provide your name and phone number, select how many tickets you want (up for 4 for each day) and how you’d like to pay (credit card or combini).
More info about all three days can be found on the official Lantis Matsuri site.
Next Monday, Lantis artists, including Granrodeo, will be holding a live press conference to discuss details about next June’s 20th anniversary Lantis Matsuri.
The announcement will air on Nico Nico, YouTube and Line. On Line only, there will be an after talk segment with the participating artists (Jam Project, Granrodeo, Minami, Ogata Megumi, etc.)
Buried in a quick update about the upcoming merger into parent company Bandai Namco, Lantis announced that 2019 will see the 20th anniversary Lantis Matsuri. The last round of Lantis Matsuri live shows was in 2014, for the company’s 15th anniversary. Details will be forthcoming.
For a second week in a row, the show will air from 24:55 ~ 25:20. This time there will be footage from this past weekend’s Tsumagoi Resort Fan Club trip! (You can see the Music Garden hall stage in the bottom pic.)
This week, Kiiyan starts off talking about Hallowe’en, then moves on to talk about the odd wrap (see pic below) that he had on his arm at the Lantis Matsuri show on 9/15.
It had looked like he hurt his left arm (and indeed, he apologized for making people think he’d gotten hurt). But it turns out it’s an NBA (National Basketball Association) arm supporter signed by former New York Knicks player John Starks. A WOWOW staffer got it for him overseas and gave it to him the day before at the Kishidan Banpaku. Kiiyan then went on to talk about basketball for the rest of the show.
