Sakurai appeared in a VTR interview where he was asked, “When did you feel the ‘power of music’?”. “When I listen to music, there is a sense of time-slip to that moment of time. Everytime I hear Mr. Children’s ‘Seesaw Game’, I suddenly remember the scenery back in middle school, in the side of a soccer field, while we wait for our seniors to finish practice,” Sakurai revealed.
Aside from the 12 hrs “THE MUSIC DAY Ongaku nochi kara”, there will also be “THE MUSIC DAY Live Presented by ZERO” where ayaka, Angela Aki, Miyazawa Kazushi (THE BOOM), flumpool, and ZERO BAND are expected to perform.
