On the 31st of January in 2010, for the first time in Japan, the „Billboard Japan Music Award" Show had been taking place.
During the part „Billboard Japan Ranking International 2009" VAMPS turned out to be awarded as well. The prize is handed to those artists, which had been successfully performing overseas in 2009 and are potentially seen successful overseas in 2010 as well.
In 2009 VAMPS had successfully completed their American Tour and for September 2009 the begin of a world tour is anchored in their schedule, which led to this awarding. The handing over of the award had been kept secret and they were the award outside the venue in a special staging.
And even though the ceremony had been a secret, there were about 1000 fans who had gathered nonetheless. When asked about their impressions on the prize as well as on their live performance, HYDE said: "We are doing what we like to do and it makes us happy to receive this public reward for it." "Concerts are certainly a great thing and for 2010 we would like to continue it to be just as much fun!" K.A.Z. commented.
2010 will be a good year for VAMPS with a start like that, it seems!
