GLAY and their money: What to do with it all?

Let’s just say after 15 years they are putting their money to work. GLAY spent a whopping 1.5 billion yen on for 2 days in Nissan Stadium. Over 150,000 fans attended the “GLAY 15th anniversary Special Live 2009 THE GREAT VACATION”.

Dubbed the “HOTEL GLAY”, they performed 21 songs on a stage that is 100 meters wide and 30 meters deep. For some great fan service, the guys ran/walked up and down a 500 meter long extension that circled the entire stadium. Way to go GLAY.

Don’t forget to catch them this September 9 in San Francisco and September 11~12 at the House of Blues in Hollywood. GLAY will be starting off their tour state side and then continue their tour in Japan in November.

Although I don’t know how “great” a “vacation” they will have here, since they will probably literally be here for only 4-5 days, but I am extremely happy. I got to see them live last year both days (read my report), and it was pretty epic. I can’t wait to see them again. JIRO!! I’ll be waiting for those 10 seconds of love again you gave me last year.
