GLAY Hates the East Coast...Again

Iconic rock band GLAY have announced they will once again be performing 3 shows in the US this coming September. Much like last year, they will play a show at the Fillmore in San Francisco followed by 2 shows at the House of Blues in LA. This ultra-mini-tour titled "GLAY US TOUR 2009: THE GREAT VACATION" will be from September 9th-12th and tickets are available here from LiveNation. If you find tickets elsewhere, I recommend that you still support LiveNation as they always seem to carry tickets for JMusic shows in the US so kudos to them!

Why are GLAY so scared of coming to the east coast? HYDE did it and, let's face it, TERU sooooo wants to be HYDE. Keep trying, brotha.
