Yes it's true and the legendary Japanese rock band L'Arc~en~Ciel has just launched a new world tour! On November 29th they kicked off the tour with a sold-out 20th anniversary concert at Ajinomoto Stadium. That show was broadcast via tape-delay at Empire 25 in New York City. According to RPGHERO:
It was basically like I won the experience of sneaking into a city movie theatre... But the concert film was pretty cool. It wasn't truly live, it was more like it was filmed on the 29th in Japan and shown in the USA on the 29th. So it's almost like it was live right? It took place at technically the same time and day.
Here is a video of the concert footage of L'Arc-en-Ciel performing Ready Steady Go from the other night:
And here is the band performing their smash hit Driver's High live at the Yoyogi Daiichi Taiikukan during the last night of their week-long "Shibuya Seven Days 2003" concerts:
