Hotei: Tokyo’s Hotei

Revered multimillion selling Japanese rock star dubbed “The Electric Samurai,” Tomoyasu Hotei will be making his American debut at the Highline Ballroom on Nov. 14 for the 10-year anniversary of the Quentin Tarantino film, Kill Bill, for which Hotei composed the song “Battle Without Honor Or Humanity.” For more than three decades, Hotei has dominated Japan with innovative guitar playing and an electrifying style that is nothing short of a face-melting good time. For this, he’s created a history of record-breaking chart releases, sold-out stadiums, and in short, is a performance that can’t be missed.
