Various ALICE NINE. announcements! DVD/Bluray Release, Lives (Feb 15, Mar 7 + 14) and Crane Game!

I've got a few more announcements to make, while I'm at it!

In an interview from September 2019 (?), the members confirmed that the correct English spelling for the band name is now:

ALICE NINE.

All capital letters, space, and of course a period at the end.
At some point, I'll probably get around to making that update on our profile page and stuff, but just keep that in mind! The English tag on Twitter is still "AliceNine" (with the Japanese tag being "アリス九號"), however.

The DVD / Bluray of their 15th Anniversary tour finale in August 2019 is now out on sale. The title of it is as follows, along with its beautiful cover art, and you can buy it in all the usual places online (or in-store if you are in Japan):



A9 LAST ONEMAN BEST OF A9 TOUR 'ALIVERSARY' FINAL & 15TH ANNIVERSARY "THE TIME MACHINE" ~If you could turn back time, would you wish to?~

The DVD is one disk, of the live itself.
The Bluray is two disks; one of the live itself with a full-length, 5-member audio commentary track, and the second disk is an audio CD of a selection of 16 songs from the live.

Feel free to leave a comment or a question for how to get a hold of it if you're not sure!

In addition, three new lives have been announced -- they have said they are scaling back on live performances and touring a little less this year compared to last year in order to make more time for creative pursuits. They're currently working on their next release, a mini album, which they plan to give more information about during their next live in February!

FEBRUARY
15th : Valentine's Day live! 「愛ノ詩ト宴-LOVESONGS-」 ("Ai no Uta to Utage-LOVESONGS-")
They have said that the majority of the set list will be cover songs!



MARCH
7th : THE ALTERNATIVE 3rd season (Saga and Nao's side project)
From what I understand, THE ALTERNATIVE generally play covers rearranged with a focus on drum/bass, and they also both play acoustic guitar and sing cover songs together. As a duo, they seem to have a bit of a folk feel, sort of like hosting a kitchen party. Pay them in smiles!



14th : THE HIROTO (Hiroto's solo project)
Hiroto's solo project seems to be "anything goes". Hiroto of course is a guitarist at heart, but takes influence from all sorts of sources, and collaborates with many different types of artists, so you can expect him to play guitar, to sing, and then anything else... will be a surprise!




In addition, ALICE NINE. are currently collaborating with a crane game application... a long-distance crane game! If you sign up with the application, you can play the crane game from a distance and potentially win a prize (an ALICE NINE. tapestry... pictured in the tweet below). I have tried it, but I'm terrible at crane games, so no luck for me so far lol! It is available to play until the 18th, and after that time, anyone who won one of the tapestry prizes will also have the opportunity to win additional photos of the members, some of which would be signed. Good luck!



If you're going to be in Japan during any of these dates, but are not sure how to get tickets, please feel free to leave me your question(s) as a comment, and I'll be happy to help out.

I, myself, will be going to see THE ALTERNATIVE on the 7th of March (provided I get a ticket in the first round of applications!), so if you are planning on going as well, let me know, we can chat a little before the live!
