Crush 40 “Live in Tokyo” Concert Postponed Due to Japan Disaster

Crush 40 “Live in Tokyo” Concert Postponed Due to Japan Disaster

A Summer Concert Now Likely

The still evolving disaster in Japan and its effects have forced the hand of Crush 40.  The band delayed a planned concert in Tokyo scheduled two weeks from now.

In a statement posted on the concert page, the band expresses “sincere sympathy” for those impacted by the earthquake and tsunami sustained in Japan’s northeast a week ago today.  They apologized and thanked customers who purchased tickets for their understanding.

The Sonic Stadium’s T-Bird has been in touch with both band members Jun Senoue and Johnny Gioeli, who also confirm a gig in Osaka has been postponed due to the disaster.  Both believe, given the magnitude of the disaster, that the decision was appropriate.

No new dates have been set for the Crush 40 concert, but the band is looking toward the summertime for a possible rescheduling.

TSSZ News’s Japan based correspondent Danny Russell was to attend the show in April.  Once new concert dates are set in stone, we will determine the viability of covering this event.
