It’s so cool that we’re finally coming to play in America. We can’t wait to rock for all of our fans, and make some new ones, in San Francisco and L.A.”

That’s Glay’s lead singer Teru, talking about the rock group’s highly anticipated and very first American appearances.

Glay’s American limited tour concert series is starting this off on August 12th, 2008 at San Francisco’s legendary Fillmore at 8:00pm, before arriving in Los Angeles for two consecutive nights at the House of Blues on the Sunset Strip — Friday, August 15th and Saturday, August 16th, 2008, starting at 9:00pm on both nights.

GLAY are hitting these U.S. venues hot on the heels of the recent June 11th release of their latest album, Verb, which contains the hit title track as well as their stunning rendition of the classic U2 song, “With or Without You.”

The band was formed in 1988 by high school friends, guitarist Takuro and vocalist Teru. After moving to Tokyo and recruiting guitarist Hisashi and bassist Jiro, they made their major label debut in 1994 with the EP Rain. In 1996, their second album Beat Out! debuted at #1 on the Oricon Chart, the Japanese equivalent of Billboard that represents the official sales statistics of music releases in Japan. Their greatest hits album, Review, was released in 1997 and sold 5,000,000 copies–the greatest selling album in Japanese chart history at the time.
