[press release] DIR EN GREY UROBOROS @ BUDOKAN via USTREAM

In January 2010, DIR EN GREY performed a two day concert at Budokan in Tokyo as a part of their biggest project, “UROBOROS.” This legendary concert was documented and released theatrically later that same year as “DIR EN GREY UROBOROS at BUDOKAN the MOVIE”. It focused on the band‘s excellent sense of music and humanity, and gave glimpses of the the reality behind the band.  Thanks to fan’s strong request, USTREAM will stream exclusively “DIR EN GREY UROBOROS at BUDOKAN the MOVIE “worldwide.

Originally, the camera was allowed to follow the band on the condition that the film would only be released theatrically. However, the band agreed to this streaming to express their appreciation for the fans. On USTREAM the viewers are able to communicate with one another as they stream the content. DIR EN GREY has a great number of enthusiastic fans across many borders, and these fans can meet and share their passions towards the band as they watch the film. This will be a totally different experience from watching the film by yourself in the cinema. “DIR EN GREY UROBOROS at BUDOKAN the MOVIE” succeeded to capture not only the world view of the band, but also the members as true seekers without disguise.
