May 3, 2010 – Wig Wam completed their Japan tour with an exclusive party concert in Tokyo, 1st of May. A packed Shibuya Boxx attended Wig Wamania Treasure Island, Saturday Night Golden Party on Saturday night. This was a special event for dedicated fans.
Check out the video clip below:
Wig Wam started the evening with an electric set, where they among other things, gave the Japanese fans their AC / DC medley with Flash & Teeny spinning around playing each others instruments back to back. The electric set was followed by a Q&A session with Wig Wam on stage answering questions from the audience.
Afterwards, there was a karaoke competition where the public could choose between different Wig Wam songs. Glam was the host and Flash, Teeny and Sporty constituted jury.
In the acoustic set Wig Wam also did the Dream Police-song “Hot Legs”. During the very last song Glam left the stage and went down to the enthusiastic audience and sang with them as he walked around in the arena. This was of course extremely popular by the crowd.
When the audience eventually left Shibuya Boxx, Wig Wam stood in the doorway and greeted everyone and gave away signed flyers.
Later that evening Wig Wam had a dinner with the winners from competitions held before Wig Wam came to Japan, and of course the winner of the karaoke contest at Shibuya Boxx.
2Cents are currently on tour with Korn as part of this year’s Jagermeister Spring Music Tour. The Southern California quartet is supporting their latest hard-hitting release, Dress To Kill (released April 20th via Eight O Five Records, and produced by Matt Hyde), which manages to combine intensity and melody together, in one hellacious sonic assault.
Some of you might recognize guitarist Adair Cobley from his days in Manntis who were part of MTV’s Battle for Ozzfest. The reality competition show aired in 2005, and Manntis were one of the finalists. They ended up in 3rd place but they ultimately landed a record deal with Century Media. They released their debut album, Sleep In Your Grave in 2005. Cobley is now a full-time member of 2Cents.
