The EARPHONES 4th Anniversary LIVE “CULTURE CLUB” scheduled for October 2019 was postponed due to a passing typhoon, and the rescheduled date set for February 2020 was canceled due to the influence of the spread of COVID-19. The event was held in October 2020 and due to existing measures at the time it was held as EARPHONES’ first online live event, but finally a long-awaited fully-fledged live event will be held to commemorate their 6th anniversary.
