DNR, DREAMS NOT REALITY & VERSAILLES: CAVACON JROCK VISUAL KEI CONCERT, ITALY. SEBA, KIRA, AXIA, SIEG, ASH BAND PHOTOS.
A fantasy came true: Seba’s band DNR — Dreams Not Reality was the first in history to open for Versailles, the Japanese Visual Kei legends!
Dying to hear what happened behind-the-scenes with DNR and Versailles, at the Cavacon Italy concert? Keep reading for the juicy details.
As you may recall, Seba recently joined DNR, the Euro-Visual rock band, as vocals and keyboards. Incredible: his very first live performance… was right before Versailles! (Here’s how he looked before and after becoming a Dreamer.)
The five members took a road trip to Salerno, close to Naples. There was lots of joking and fun along the way. DNR laughed when they saw this billboard for a child’s Communion, erected by an over-bearing papa and mamma.
As soon as they arrived at the hotel, the rockers took off their clothes and jumped into the swimming pool. (Wish you were there?)
Seba was also Versailles’ translator, so he stayed with the Jrock giants for most of the time. We can’t post the snap photos with Versailles, for privacy reasons. But Seba can assure you that Hizaki, Kamijo, Teru, Yuki and Masashi were sweet and gracious in person. He and Versailles also knew many of the same people in the Japanese music industry.
Time to get Visual, and dress up for the concert. Do you think Seba’s pants are sufficiently tight?
As always, DNR’s performance was full of passion and energy. The band played seven songs and won over the crowd, many of whom had lined up for hours.
Exhausted but euphoric, Seba poses with Axia (vocals) and Kira (bass) afterwards.
When the event was over, Seba’s band spent time talking to fans, and then shared pizza with Versailles. The Japanese V-rockers told them they love Italy, and are psyched to embark on a world tour this year.
Elephant-sized news: DNR and I are collaborating on a top secret musical project, taking place in Rome this month! Stay tuned for more info — we’re doing something unexpected and exciting, I promise.
