It has been three years since Puffy's last tour and this past week "Swag, Swag, Swag" was announced. It is kind of hard to believe it has been this long of a break between tours, but then again the clock has to turn further back for a new album.
Anyways, even for a Japan tour it is a limited number of dates spread across early October through early November. Tickets are 5400 yen and are on sale starting August 10.
The announced dates are:
October 10 (Fri) Osaka Umeda CLUB QUATTRO
October 11 (Sat) Nagoya BOTTOM LINE
October 15 (Wed) Hiroshima CLUB QUATTRO
October 16 (Thurs) Fukuoka Ims Hall
November 1 (Sat) Sendai darwin
November 8 (Sat) Tokyo EX THEATER ROPPONGI
My big question is what will the band consist of? Pretty sure Kinoshita Hiroharu will be in the mix on bass, but guessing from the pics I have seen filter out from the last performance I am less certain. I would be surprised if they did a stripped down band, but on the other hand a simpler guitar centric sound is not something I am opposed to.
