The Osaka International Convention Center (Grand Cube Osaka) has recently been designated to be a venue for a large-scale COVID-19 vaccination site by the Japanese government and it has become infeasible to use the venue on the concert dates.  Therefore, the Osaka shows of the 20th Orchestra Tour HYDE ROENTGEN 2021 tour scheduled to be held on 6/30/2021 and 7/1/2021 (JST) at the Osaka International Convention Center (Grand Cube Osaka) will be postponed, cancelled, or the venue will be changed.


We are currently considering alternative options, but in the event that we are unable to reschedule the show dates or unable to arrange an alternative venue, or depending on the situation of the spread of the COVID-19 infection, we may have no choice but to cancel the shows.

We will announce the details on the official website as soon as they are confirmed, including how ticket refunds will be handled.


We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause to those who were planning to attend.  Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

HYDE's newest song ON MY OWN will be the ending theme for the TV anime "MARS RED"!

HYDE's upcoming song ON MY OWN will be the ending theme for the TV anime "MARS RED" (originally written by Bun-o Fujisawa), which is the first ever anime adaptation of a dramatic stage reading play!  ON MY OWN will also be available on online music sites from 4/9/2021.


TV anime "MARS RED" is a story of the Japanese government's anti-vampire agency "The 16th Special Task Force - a.k.a. Code Zero", set in the Taisho era.

The 16th Special Task Force, commonly known as "Code Zero," was established within the army to recruit or capture vampires who have been living in hiding in this world since ancient times, drinking human blood under the cover of darkness.  Tonight, the team faces the wandering vampires again...


As the story of "Code Zero" progresses through the night of Taisho Romanticism, HYDE's new song ON MY OWN, which sounds sad at times and aggressive in others as if to sympathize with the emotions of the vampires, adds flair to the ending of the anime.

The TV anime will start airing on Yomiuri TV, TOKYO MX, Chukyo TV, and other stations from 4/5/2021 (JST)!


And as a preview of the series, a new teaser clip for the anime featuring ON MY OWN was released on YouTube today, so be sure to check it out!
