The post, written in Japanese, said, "Hachiko Square Shibuya, 59 minutes at 18 Friday." But a publicist for the band has insisted the message was not meant to spark rumours of a gig.

The spokesperson says, "The band will not be in Japan tomorrow, so people should not go to Shibuya expecting to see the band in person."
