L’Arc-en-Ciel is definitely a Japanese band that likes to be the first in its field. Their albums Ark and Ray were the first Japanese albums to be released simultaneously in many Asian countries, ever. They were the fist Japanese act to perform at the 1st Mariner Arena in Baltimore, Maryland (and at their North American debut at that!). They were the performers of the first Mobile Suit Gundam 00 opening theme son”g (Daybreak’s Bell”).
Now, they continue to be “the first” – this time, they will be the first Japanese act to be the headline performer at The Theatre at Madison Square Garden in New York City. The show will happen March 23, 2012 and will be a part of the band’s World Tour.
