GACKT Again as Uesugi Kenshin. "On into the Fight!"

TV series / GACKT

On August 22nd, the "85th Kenshin-ko sai" had been held in Joetsu, Niigata Prefecture with GACKT performing. The "Kenshin-Ko sai" festival is an event held since 1926 in honor for the outstanding virtue and courage of Uesugi Kenshin. Because GACKT had been playing the role of "Uesugi Kenhsin" in the "Taiga dorama" "Furinkazan" since 2007, he has been taking part in the festival for the third time this year following his appearances in 2007and 2008.

His performance this time was following the many requests of the guests coming from all over the country, with the wish to "see GACKT showing the courageous side of Uesugi Kenshin", which had eventually been realized. At the day GACKT appeared on a horse, welcome by cheerful shouting voice of Joetsu citizens: "Oyakata-sama, welcome home!"

Next, GACKT will be holding his live at Zepp Tokyo on August 29th. The telephone application for that days tickets also started, so don't miss this chance!
