NICO Touches the Walls
NICO's 3rd Live DVD set for release on 11th of January! 
26th-Nov-2011 04:32 am
So playasia's email about this release was right all along. I would've been more surprised if it wasn't, considering a couple gals at twitter did say playasia has tendency to release info much earlier than everyone, artists themselves included.

2012.01.11 Release
3rd Live DVD
NICO Touches the Walls TOUR 2011 PASSENGER ~We are Passionate Messenger~
KSBL-5963 ¥4,515(tax in)

Pre-order at: Playasia.com


Since 7 out of 10 dates off "HUMANIA" Tour was sold out (yay!), NICO immediately announced their decision to have additional performances. They titled it, "Ground of HUMANIA." ... rather it's NICO Touches the Walls Tour 2012 "HUMANIA" Additional Performances "Ground of HUMANIA." Anyway, it's 5 additional dates in Nagoya, Osaka, Chiba and Naha. Ain't it nice ending the tour in Okinawa?

3/10 - Nagoya: Chukyo University Center for Culture & Arts Aurora Hall (capacity 2,291)
3/15 & 3/16 - Osaka: NHK Osaka Hall (capacity 1,417)
3/20 - Chiba: Makuhari Messe Hall (capacity up to 9,000)
3/25 - Naha: Naha Central Hall (capacity 360)

It seems like they will be performing to more audience in this tour. If not, then it's probably just more chances for die-hard NICO fans to go city-hopping and see the boys for the nth time. General sales is on February 4, 2012, however, for NICO Mobile Site members, lottery started today 11/26 at 18:00 and will last till 12/5 at 18:00. Note: smartphones are still not supported. It also turns out that the upcoming album, "HUMANIA," will include a code for the lottery that will start on 12/7 at 18:00 till 12/19 at 18:00. This was not posted on the official website, however, ro69 reported it.

Also, it was announced that those who purchase "HUMANIA" album via Tsutaya can join the lottery to not only get tickets but also have a chance to be invited backstage at NICO's live at Chiba Makuhari Messe Hall on 3/20. Edit: More details on main website confirming Tsutaya promo. Those who make reservation via Tsutaya (*check for store participation) will receive an application post card to enter a lottery to see NICO at their Chiba live plus a backstage pass. Postcard must be postmarked by December 31, 2011. They mentioned additional info on the main website.. 


The limited edition of "HUMANIA" includes a bonus dvd. They've announced before that it's an acoustic live session, and the article confirms the tracklist:


NICO Touches the Walls Acoustic Sessions ~アコタッチと呼んでみて☆~
M1. 手をたたけ アコースティック
M2. THE BUNGY アコースティック
M3. Lonesome ghostアコースティック


Yesterday was "1125 (Ii NICO) Day LIVE" at Sendai Rensa in Miyagi Prefecture. Pictures from natalie:

Who's Akotacchi? THE BUNGY FTW! So glad they're pimping this out instead of Hologram, though that acoustic version of Hologram was pretty darn good. YAY for the DVD!!!!! So can't wait.

wow, you're fast... wasn't LJ acting weird a little while ago?
I really loved PASSENGER, and this dvd is definitely made of awesome.
I'm getting nervous already for them.

Ah~ I can't wait.

wohoho...so happily crazy ^O^
i'm curious about this
"※New Album+Live DVD W購入者応募特典:オリジナルノートブックカレンダー"

do you know what does it means?
is it something related to the Tsutaya promotion?
26th-Nov-2011 07:55 am (UTC)
Oh, I forgot to add that. /headdesk.

I really don't know how the promo for Original Calendar Notebook works. I guess we gotta wait until stores receive more information about the releases and promos. HMV and CDJapan haven't listed up the dvd yet, so I doubt they've received any info on the notebook. They might have the whole application process,w hich is such a hassle for overseas fans.

Tsutaya promo is the post card which can be submitted to join the lottery for live+backstage pass on NICO's CHiba live. Sorry, LJ was wonky earlier so I only got the chance to edit that portion on Tsutaya.

lonesome ghost will be in acoustic version? woww... looking forward to see it XD *counting days*

dvd! yeeah! can't wait for the tracklists to come out also :D

28th-Nov-2011 09:10 pm (UTC)
Kinda a bummer it's only three songs, and we already have the other two from the USTREAM live... I'm curious if it's a different version from what we've heard already.
29th-Nov-2011 10:33 am (UTC)
yes, actually i was expecting other songs than the bungy and te o tatake, but let's see, hopefully they make the different acoustic versions of those songs XD

M3. Lonesome ghostアコースティック
FFFUUU! Man, I miss this song ;~;
28th-Nov-2011 09:11 pm (UTC)
Me too~~ I started listening to it again after this announcement!
27th-Nov-2011 08:12 am (UTC)
PASSENGER DVD! CONFIRMED AT LAST! What a great way to start the new year :D But I'm a tad bit disappointed to know that there are only 3 songs for the acoustic session.. But hey, it's Ki-oon after all, what can we expect?

I'm so proud of them for having almost all their venues sold out. This can only mean that they may be doing a live in some big venue in the near future..
28th-Nov-2011 09:12 pm (UTC)
Big venue means another possibility of a dvd right? Oh I sure hope so! I wonder if their move from Senha sorta hindered their release of a budokan live dvd.
29th-Nov-2011 07:42 am (UTC)
Maybe it did. But it's such a waste that they didn't release it, considering it's their FIRST BUDOKAN LIVE. They could've at least thought of how big of a deal that was for the boys (& for the fans). Oh well..
