Price: $42.50, $59.50, $69.50 & $85 reserved seats
Acclaimed as revolutionary founders of technopop, Yellow Magic Orchestra has been recreating extraordinary electronic music since 1978. Today there current incarnation is more than just a melding of their previous groups, Human Audio Sponge (HAS), and Yellow Magic Orchestra (YMO), previously called HASYMO, but they have developed a new sound that transcends the two groups.

The group is reworking many of their classics to be performed with the focus on live instruments, showcasing the breadth of the individual artist talents as well as the group as a whole.

Equipped with regular supporting members including Keigo Oyamada (Guitar) from Cornelius, Ren Takada (Pedal Steel/Electronics) and Tomohiko Gondo (HD Operation/Euphonium), Yellow Magic Orchestra played the Japanese Summer Festival World Happiness Tour, 2009 and 2010. Fans were taken aback by rare performances of classic YMO pieces such as Thousand Knives, Firecracker and Behind The Mask.

Behind the Mask was included in the recently released Michael Jackson album, Michael, composed of unreleased tracks. This cover of the YMO classic included a sample from the original track.
