We regret to inform you that CHAGE and ASKA’s [Special Live 2013, “On Your Mark”], performance scheduled for August 28, 29 and 31 at the First Gymnasium of Yoyogi National Gymnasium will be postponed for the following reason:
For some weeks, ASKA had been complaining of ill health and has received detailed examination by physicians. As a result, transient cerebral ischemia has been suspected and although the symptoms are not critical, the physicians have diagnosed that the symptoms require further follow-up and treatment and rest is necessary. Although ASKA has expressed his strong wish to appear on stage in August, the related parties have deliberated this matter and have come to the conclusion to postpone the special live this time.
CHAGE and ASKA wishes to express their deepest regret to the fans that have been waiting patiently for the first live stage to take place in six years and also of the concern this news will bring to their fans.
ASKA is now concentrating on receiving treatment in order to realize a fully prepared concert of CHAGE and ASKA. We ask for your understanding and request you to provide a gentle watch over the situation
This might be dangerous, this can potentially lead to a stroke, right?
What about CHAGE just doing it by himself?
I hope he gets better soon
They resume activities, then this happens
Looks like everyone's health has started taking its toll
Ucchan or Jackie Chan should take his place
Is it just me? It seems like there have been a lot of personalities getting sick since the great disaster, with the character 血 (Chi = blood) in the name of the disease.
Please rest and get well, then show us a better you next time!
- ASKA (55)
It'll be dangerous if he gets a stroke, so please rest and recuperate...
Uhmmm, I collapse all the time because of this transient cerebral ischemia...
Take your time and rest
Things just aren't going well for them
In Japan, only ChageAska and MisChil have been able to record sales of over 2 million copies for 2 of their singles.
Please get well soon.
Noooooo! Noooooooo! Noooooooooooooooo!!!!
Alcohol?... ASKA seems like the type who loves to drink.
I initially thought that "transient cerebral ischemia" was only a severe case of anemia, but I found out that it's very dangerous and is actually one of the symptoms for stroke after consulting mr. google.
I've been telling you guys, they're not on bad terms
This is surprising.
Seriously, don't die on us now.
Though he isn't talked about too much on 2chan, Ryo Aska is truly a genius songwriter. If you just get over the fact that he wrote idol songs for Hikari GENJI, the songs he writes are seriously of high quality. He's similar to Bach and Mozart in the sense that he can create a melody that you'll never forget if you even hear it once. He really is the last genius songwriter to come out from Japan.
At least they were able to find out about it before he turned into a vegetable.
I feel bad for them, they debuted on August 29 and this is their 35th Anniversary. I really believe that they wanted to push through with this no matter what.
