Akihito Okano of Porno Graffitti, who is currently pursuing his "Walk To The Song In My Heart" Project, has announced his first live stream performance, titled DISPATCHERS, will be held on April 11th.

The stream will begin at 19:00 (JST). Tickets are priced at 3,300 yen, and they are on sale now via LiVESHiP and LIVEWIRE. After the live broadcast, ticket holders will be able to watch an archive of the performance until 23:59 (JST) on April 14th.

Okano was about to start a new chapter in his career at the beginning of 2020. However, when a state of emergency was declared due to the spread of the novel coronavirus, Okano, like many across the world, was forced to stay home, and he could not find a way to carry out the activities he had envisioned.

Okano decided to do something to help those who are also struggling and trying to move forward by starting the DISPATCHERS program on YouTube.

He commented: “I hope that the message and energy that I send out through my voice will help people. Also, if I work together with fellow musicians whom I respect, we can surely create great possibilities and overcome any difficulties. With this in mind, I decided to start the 'Walk To The Song In My Heart' Project with those closest to me to become 'DISPATCHERS' and take our message further."

Early this year, Okano released the digital single Hikari Are as the first step of the "Walk To The Song In My Heart" project. The song features lyrics by Yorushika's n-buna and music by composer Hiroyuki Sawano.

For the music video, he collaborated with the popular YouTuber Y’s Rebellion, who has been practicing soccer kicks for several years in a project called "What If Someone Like Me Practiced Kicking a Million Times?” In the music video, Y gradually improves over time.

During the DISPATCHERS streaming concert, Okano will perform Porno Graffitti's songs and his own solo songs, as well as covers of songs from various artists, as he does in the DISPATCHERS program. More details on the performance are available here.

The music video for Hikari Are and a studio live version featuring Hiroyuki Sawano can be viewed below:
