Rip SlymeLooks like Japan will be blessed with not just one, but TWO Live Earth events. On the same day – July 7th – music will be blaring from two of Japan’s most famous cities: Tokyo and Kyoto. The nation’s current and former capitals.

The Kyoto concert will be held at the Toji-ji Buddhist temple in southern Kyoto. The temple is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is an appropriate destination for this concert, as it is associated with the healing Buddha.

So far the line-up features British composer Michael Nyman, and two Japanese pop bands, Rip Slyme and Yellow Magic Orchestra.

“Music is scheduled to be blaring from the sacred Toji stage at 7pm. There are special seats for $124USD, normal seats for $74USD and standing tickets for $58USD.

Tickets for the Kyoto event go on sale on Saturday, June 9th at 10am. They can be purchased online from eplus.jp.

Editor’s note: I find it odd that Japan will have 2 concerts when some would argue that the US should have a second concert. I don’t think the USA should have two concerts – but I’m not sure Japan should either…especially looking at that slightly light line-up.

    the kyoto show is not going to be a full day concert like the other shows around the world.

    but i agree! where’s the SF concert? or LA? or Vancouver?

    and, as they’re so popular, i’ll also point out that Linkin Park is headlining the Tokyo show.
