NJPW announces two-night Castle Attack event for February

NJPW is heading to Osaka-jo Hall for a new event in February 2021.

NJPW has announced that Castle Attack will be held over two nights at Osaka-jo Hall in Osaka, Japan in February. Night one will take place on Saturday, February 27 and night two will take place on Sunday, February 28.

The Road to Castle Attack tour begins with four nights at Korakuen Hall in Tokyo from February 14-17.  The tour will also feature shows in Iwate on Friday, February 19, Yamagata on Saturday, February 20, and Fukushima on Sunday, February 21 before wrapping up back in Korakuen Hall with events on Monday, February 22 and Thursday, February 25.

The Castle Attack tour takes the place of the usual New Japan Road shows that have been held between the conclusion of the New Beginning tour and the March 4 Anniversary Show in recent years. 

NJPW and CMLL typically run their Fantastica Mania tour in mid-to-late January. With current travel restrictions due to COVID-19, that tour will not be held in January 2021. 

After Wrestle Kingdom 15 and New Year Dash on January 4-6, NJPW's Road to the New Beginning tour kicks off on January 17.
