Official HIGE DANdism shared a clip of their performance of “Brothers” from their 2019 Nippon Budokan concert last summer, promoting the live DVD of the show released Wednesday (Feb. 12).
The video from Official HIGE DANdism one-man tour 2019 @Nippon Budokan captures an energetic rendition of the upbeat number, featuring bassist/saxophonist Makoto Narazaki playing the baritone sax with a dancing horn section while frontman Satoshi Fujihara and guitarist Daisuke Ozasa leap around the stage encouraging the packed crowd to sing along and wave their hands in unison to the chorus.
Drummer Masaki Matsuura also takes the spotlight midway for a swinging drum solo, and the footage is the perfect introduction to the breakout band’s first headlining concert at the historic venue. Watch below:
The Budokan DVD is the band’s first live DVD to be circulated throughout Japan, and a live album of the show, simply called HIGE DAN Live at Nippon Budokan, is also now available for download and streaming on various platforms including Apple Music.
HIGE DAN’s new single “I LOVE…” leads the latest Billboard Japan Hot 100, dated Feb. 3 to 9, a week before the CD version dropped with the Budokan DVD on Feb. 12.
The song was made available digitally before its physical release, and reached No. 1 on 23 different streaming and download song rankings in Japan including the iTunes weekly song ranking and LINE MUSIC’s real-time ranking.
