AKB48 Defaced Outside Live Stage
Japan ultimate pop group and the flagship of its J-Pop music industry have surprisingly been defaced outside their very own stage in Tokyo’s Akihabara district! The all-girl Japanese sensation have taken Asia by storm and are currently pretty much going head-to-head against Koreas own K-Pop bands!
Outside their daily live performance venue one of the most well known billboards to their musical mythology is the column that has highlighted the band ever since it built it’s on the Akihabara scene.
Yet in the photos every member of the band on the famous billboards can be seen to have been defaced! In Japans ultra safe, crime free-zone, such blatant vandalism is almost unheard of, and for many years I have passed by the self same billboard surprised at how it always seems to look brand new!
