Sakamoto gently rallies the troops for No Nukes 2012
By EDAN CORKILL
|Normalizing force: Ryuichi Sakamoto, who organized the two-day No Nukes 2012 concert event, says he intended to include bands not normally known for any kind of political activism in an attempt to show that participation in such an event should not be considered "radical."|
No Nukes 2012 takes place in the No. 4-5 exhibition halls at Makuhari Messe in Chiba on July 7-8 (12 p.m. start). Tickets cost ¥6,800 for a one-day pass, ¥13,000 for a two-day pass. For more information, visitnonukes2012.jp.
