Playing in front of an audience for the first time in almost a year, MUCC made up for lost time with a marathon concert at the Nippon Budokan


2020 was a tough year in many ways, but unlike other bands, MUCC was very active on social media since last February, with live streamed no-audience concerts, talk shows and more. After playing without crowds for almost a year, the live event Aku-The brightness world, held at a half-capacity Nippon Budokan on December 27th, let MUCC shine like they hadn’t shone in almost a year.
