Girl band ZONE performed at the charity live, “Ganbare!! Tohoku Charity LIVE ~SUPER GIRLS BAND ‘MESSAGE’~” on December 20th, where they announced that they’ll continue as a group next year. Member MIYU explained, “We visited the disaster-stricken areas a number of times, and realized that it would take more time for recovery. Thus, we decided to continue our activities next year.”
ZONE disbanded on April 1st, 2005 after their final performance at the Nippon Budokan. The members have been pursuing solo activities for a while, but got together again after the Tohoku earthquake. In August, they held their comeback live at Akasaka BLITZ, and announced that they would extend their activities to the year’s end.
MAIKO expressed, ”We want to encourage people through the power of our music. We want to also hold a tour.”
At this charity event, ZONE performed a total of nine songs including their hit number, “secret base ~Kimi ga Kureta Mono~“. Stereopony and SCANDAL also performed at the event.
