J-Rock bands DAZZLE VISION and CANTOY set concert record at Tekkoshocon 2013
April 11, 2013 — Japanese rock and metal bands DAZZLE VISION and CANTOY set the record for the highest-ever concert attendance at Japanese pop culture event Tekkoshocon last week, with 1100 fans attending the live performance at Pittsburgh’s David L. Lawrence Convention Center during the April 5-7 weekend.
The concert was headlined by screamo band DAZZLE VISION, whose lead singer Maiko challenged the audience with “Show me what you got!” before launching into her trademark death-voice howls. It was DAZZLE VISION’s second live concert in America, following an appearance at Sakura-Con in 2010. The band embraced the anime lovers at the event by cosplaying as characters from One Piece and taking a surprise stroll of the convention center before the live show began. Bassist Takuro made the connection even more personal by diving into the large crowd and crowd-surfing with the aid of Tekkoshocon attendees.
