ZONE fulfills their promise to reunite 10 years later


On April 1st of 2005, four-member girl band ZONE disbanded at the Nippon Budokan in Tokyo. But it looks like they'll be coming together once again to hold a comeback live on August 14th and 15th at Tokyo's Akasaka BLITZ.

Fans are especially excited about the live because the girls are fulfilling a promise when they sang their song, “secret base ~Kimi ga Kureta Mono~”. The song carries the lyrics, “Believe that we can meet again 10 years later in August…”, and true to their word, 10 years later the group is going out to meet their fans once again.

Unfortunately, MIZUHO has left the world of show business, so the other three members - MIYU, MAIKO, and TOMOKA - will be reuniting without her.

Not only will ZONE be coming together for the two special lives, but they'll also be releasing a limited edition tribute album on August 10th called “ZONE Tribute ~Kimi ga Kureta Mono~”, which features other female artists doing covers of ZONE’s hit songs.

MAIKO commented, “Ever since the Great Tohoku Earthquake, we’ve been shooting around ideas asking ourselves “What is something we can do?”. As a result, we decided to comeback so we can give those suffering power through music”.

MIYU spoke about their promise, “This is the year that is “10 years later in August” that the lyrics of “secret base” bring up. Isn’t there somehow some kind of meaning to this chance…”. TOMOKA also expressed her joy in meeting with fans again, “I’m really looking forward to meeting with you all”.

Furthermore, the artists in the limited edition tribute album are girls from the same generation as ZONE. The songs will be specially selected by the members of ZONE themselves, and the group is also recording an answer song to “secret base ~Kimi ga Kureta Mono~”.
