The Korean singer, Rain, had a concert a few weeks back in Madison Square Garden (NYC), but it's not like I really cared much anyway. As for stuff I do care about: So far, I just have information on the upcoming Despairs Ray, Dir en Grey, and ELLEGARDEN concerts. Funny thing is Dir en Grey is all vulgar and stuff and their concert in a 16+ event, while most of ELLEGARDEN's concerts are 21+ (and they're not profane as far as I know). Do you see any logic in this??? =__+*
