On May 31, L’Arc~en~Ciel held the final performance of their 2012 world tour at the Waikiki Shell in Honolulu, Hawaii. Honolulu established that day as ‘L’Arc~en~Ciel Day’ in celebration of the band’s first concert in Hawaii.
As the concert was coming to an end, Mayor of Honolulu Peter Carlisle made an appearance on stage and declared May 31, 2012 as ‘L’arc~en~Ciel Day’. Mayor Calisle made the decision to show his appreciation for the band choosing Hawaii as the last stop of their tour. He also felt L’arc has helped establish a friendship between Hawaii and Japan. Leader tetsuya was presented with an official statement and the members posed for a photo with everyone giving the shaka sign.
“Today has been amazing," said vocalist hyde. "This is a paradise of rainbows (‘L’Arc~en~Ciel' means ‘The Rainbow’ in French) so I’m happy. Since L’Arc Day has been established, I would like to hold a live here again.”
L’Arc~en~Ciel is the 3rd Japanese artist to have a established in their remembrance in Hawaii. ‘TUBE Day‘ was created back on June 1, 2000, and ‘Arashi Day‘ came to be on March 30 and 31 in 2002.
