ZONE – 4th Anniversary of Dismissal

Four years ago, on this day, 2005 1st April, century’s greatest concert was held at Nippon Budokan. It was the last concert for them, ZONE…

They started off in 1999, that went on to become a hit in 2000 with their single “GOOD DAYS”. They became more famous after their fourth single was released, “Secret Base ~Kimi ga Kureta Mono~”.

February of 2005, ZONE officially announced that they were disbanding. The reason was not because of artistic differences or catfights or loss of popularity, they simply wanted to explore options for their futures. That’s a pretty acceptable reason, as at that time 3 of the members had just graduated from high school and one had yet to graduate!

There are lots of video clips available in youtube. Especially their MVs and final concert.
