First Ever The Extreme Tour Japan Soon

It’s OCTOBER soon.
We, Imari Tones, are going for THE EXTREME TOUR JAPAN.
We have been working in this for the whole year.
We worked so hard to make this happen.
We will be touring JAPAN with the bands from USA/Canada.
We will be touring with The Lacks (California, USA – The Extreme Tour West Coast Tour Manager), The Burn Ins (Elkford, BC, Canada), and C.J. Lassiter (California USA).
It was not easy to plan this tour.
And it won’t be easy actually touring.
Because, as you already know, Japan is very different from USA.
In Japan Christian situation very different.
Japan Christian population is only 1%.
Churches are few and small.
We can’t get much help from them, like we do in USA.
Also music situation very different.
In USA, The Extreme Tour always plays outside location such as parks and skateparks.
But in Japan it’s not easy to book those outside location gig.
Also in Japan “pay to play” is very common and it takes so much money to plan this kind of tour.
So we needed to work harder, to figure out what would work.
We worked very hard to figure out what was the best plan.
Here we are.
We figured it out somehow and we will tour in JAPAN.
With these The Extreme Tour bands.
In the most “extreme” style we can get.
This is not an ordinary music tour.
We will visit the deepest part of the community and bring hope to them.
We won’t play a big concert.
We will play, the darkest, the dirtiest, the smallest venues and locations.
And we make friends, bring love.
We will show people “something different”.
Not merely by words, BUT by the acts, emotion, and passion.
THE FIRST EVER Extreme Tour in Japan.
We are proud to be a part of it.
And we are pround that we made it happen.
Please pray so that the tour will be successful one.
Here is the schedule of the concerts and the tour.
Mostly we play Yokohama/Kawasaki region, but we also go to Tohoku region (Fukushima and Miyagi).

Other than that, we may be playing some cafe gig or street performance on the spot.
In the past, we toured in USA a few times.
Other than that, we have always been gigging locally in Yokohama/Tokyo region.
That’s what we were always doing.
However, oddly enough, this is the first actual “Touring” in Japan for us, as well as this is the first Japan tour for The Extreme Tour bands.
We feel so blessed.
And we really hope this will change the spiritual situation in Japan.
Because we feel, the spiritual situation in Japan is getting so much in crisis.
Surely, this is a small tour.
It’s a small step.
But we do hope this is the beginning of the big things.
Thank you very much and God bless,
Tak / Imari Tones
