Well it’s a little more than a week before we get on a plane and undertake a few live dates in Japan. Can’t wait!
We’re playing at Billboard Live in Tokyo on the 2nd and 3rd November and in Osaka on 5th. We haven’t been in a while but we always have a blast.
Simon was interviewed for Metropolis on this very subject.
Japan has been a longtime supporter. Tell us about the response you get here and your Japan-only album.
When you begin to travel with music you are very fortunate to get to see places you wouldn’t have otherwise and Japan has always been many things to us: unique, fascinating, friendly, efficient and a great place to party! In a way it’s become a second home. We love the food, which has a palette like no other in the world [and] the shopping, clubbing, bars and the fans at our shows who always make it special with their understanding and enjoyment of our music.
