Roppongi, a hub of art and culture from around the world and site of the hottest new venue in town, Tokyo Midtown, is set to become home to Billboard Live Tokyo. Already a virtual Mecca for shopping and dining, and with 40% of its space dedicated to lush, relaxing greenery, Tokyo Midtown is a true urban oasis for grown-ups. Plus, easy access from Roppongi Station via an underground passageway makes this the perfect location for you to live it up at Billboard Live Tokyo.

Split-level auditorium and nightscape backdrop! The main auditorium at Billboard Live Tokyo is split into three levels, which offer a variety of seating options. Table and sofa seats are available on lower and middle levels and a casual (i.e., standing) area on the upper level, and each position offers unobstructed views of the stage. The stage itself features a glass backdrop, which features sweeping nightscape views up until show time.

Tickets for Billboard Live clubs in Tokyo and Osaka can be bought over the phone or online. Additionally, members of Club BBL, the exclusive Billboard Live member's club that covers all three of our venues in Japan, are eligible for priority reservations, members-only services and may reserve specific seats. Also, some ticket outlets (e.g., Ticket Pia and e-Plus) offer advance ticket sales for selected Billboard Live shows.
