I was told of a New Years concert at the Hilton featuring some fifty-ish J-pop stars. I imagined a Ringo Starr setup starring some of my fave J-pop idols from the 1970s. Heck the Four Leaves are all in their mid-to-late fifties and were still a draw.
Well, I just got the announcement:
Hilton Hawaiian Village proudly presents R50!!
Well so much for any anticipation I might’ve had going forward. I think I recognize Matsuzaki’s name from all those “Ii Tabi Yume Kibun” episodes. Maybe. I assure you I have zero (0) of their songs, on CD or download.
Well I’m sure they meant something to someone, in a galaxy far, far away. But not me.
And I’m certain the Hilton is still very, very proud.
October UPDATE: The concert was cancelled due to… well, whaddya expect? No matter: I expect the next big Seventies revival sooner than later.
