Japanese rock band FLOW, known for countless anime song contributions, has announced the band’s largest-ever and first five-continent tour in its history – “FLOW WORLD TOUR- ANIME SHIBARI 2024-2025”

The tour title “ANIME SHIBARI” meaning “Anime-only” in Japanese, denotes that they will only perform the numerous songs that FLOW has contributed to Japanese animation. Many of FLOW’s most popular songs will be performed, including songs from “NARUTO,” ”Code Geass,” “Dragon Ball Z,” and more.

Their highest streamed song “Sign” has amassed over 100 million streams on Spotify alone, and FLOW is loved around the world having performed in nearly 20 countries from 2006 until now.

As a tribute to FLOW’s anime heritage and tour theme, the key visual of the World Tour features the five band members depicted as anime characters, along with an animated promotional video, both created by ZERO Animation.

FLOW declares, “Over the past 20 years, our audience has helped us create music and live performances as FLOW. Now we are taking it all around the world through our World Tour. Let’s create the best time together during our performances as we celebrate the world of anime works we’ve collaborated with. Thank you to everyone for your support!”
