[J-Rock] L’Arc~en~Ciel UPDATES! (Includes VAMPS and Ken’s releases)

L'Arc-en-Ciel

L’Arc~en~Ciel Update:

Kyaaaa~ Finally! After the long wait, L’Arc~en~Ciel will release a DVD of their concert in Paris, which was held on May 9, 2008 as part of their L’7 Trans Asia via Paris Tour. The DVD is slated to be released on May 20, 2009. I haven’t seen the setlist of the DVD , yet, but I hope that it will have lots of their old songs. Hehe.

Aside from the Paris live, they will also release a documentary DVD of the tour. It’s title is “Documentary Films -Trans Asia via Paris” and its release date is on March 25, 2009. I’m hoping that it will feature the Hong Kong live because some of my friends from Laruku PH are there  ^_^
