GLAY CONCERT FILM ONLY A FEW DAYS AWAY AND SET TO THRILL
J-ROCK FANS IN SAN FRANCISCO AND LOS ANGELES

Bestselling Japanese Rock Band Performance Presented In A Special Live Concert Film
In Exclusive One-Night-Only Screenings!

Only a few days remain to secure tickets to attend the San Francisco and Los Angeles theatrical screenings of the GLAY: STADIUM LIVE 2012 THE SUITE ROOM in OSAKA NAGAI STADIUM live concert film.

The film, which captures a mesmerizing live performance by the bestselling J-rock band, will play for one-night-only in San Francisco on Friday, November 16th at 8:00pm, at the NEW PEOPLE Cinema, and also on Saturday, November 17th in Los Angeles at 6:00pm at the Downtown Independent Theatre. Advance tickets are $20.00 and are available for the San Francisco screening at: www.newpeopleworld.com/films/films-11-2012/, and for Los Angeles at: http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/282701

Tickets are also available at respective theatre box offices on the day-of screenings.

GLAY’s original 4-hour live performance took place in Osaka on July 28th and 29th before a massive audience of more than 100,000 people and was adapted into the special 3-hour concert film, depicting the best moments of the legendary performance on July 29th and featuring many of the band’s greatest hits. Additional information on this special event can be found at: http://www.liveviewing.jp/glay-screenings/.

As a special bonus, attendees for the San Francisco and Los Angeles screenings will also receive a special commemorative GLAY notebook that was originally only given to concert goers that bought a GLAY CD at one of the band’s live shows. Notebooks will be given out on-site at theatre locations on a first-come/first-served basis, while supplies last.



Since their debut in 1994, GLAY has led the music scene in Japan to become one of the best-selling rock acts in the country and has also garnered a substantial worldwide following. To-date, the 4-piece band has released an astounding 45 singles and has sold more than 40 million albums in Japan alone.

The band name “GLAY” is a deliberate misspelling of the word “gray”, which represents the style of music the members wanted to play; a mixture between rock (black) and pop (white). Takuro, the band’s founder and leader, writes most of Glay's songs and music and is an ardent Beatles fan and the group’s music is heavily influenced by English as well as American rock fans. Although GLAY primarily composes songs in the rock genre, they have also written songs in styles ranging from reggae to gospel. Due to their musical diversity, beautiful lyrics and wonderful melodies, the band has emerged as one of the most successful and well known bands in Japan, and most of Asia. The members of GLAY are also heavily involved in a variety of social and charitable causes.
