  1. I think Extreme have only a few good songs (none of them are the “Pornograffiti” album though), in my opinion.
    So I won’t be going to this concert, even though it’s in Japan.

    I notice that they’ll be playing at the “Tokyo Dome City Hall”, not in the (much larger) actual “Tokyo Dome”.
    And they’re also going to play at the “Shibuya Kokaido”…the first concert I ever saw in Japan (Death Angel “Act III” 1991 tour) was there.

      “Kid Ego” and “Decadence Dance” are my favorite “old school” Extreme songs. “Get The Funk Out” is cool. “More Than Words” hit #1 in America and is a “soft Rock” classic to me.

      The latest Extreme album “Saudades de Rock” (2008) is what I consider this band’s GREATEST album to date! You would dig it, I just know!

      As for the concert venue & touring “situation” in America in 2012… unless you’re Van Halen, Daughtry, Nickelback or Bruce Springsteen, no “one” band is gonna fill an arena or (gulp) stadium here. The promoters alway’s “package” bands/performers together, (for example) “The Big 4”.

      Case in point: I just went to see Death Angel, Testament and Anthrax “packaged together” at a “club” that only fits (maybe) 2,000 people in it, (if that’s even the legal limit of people for that venue).

      I went to see Queensryche play at this same club last summer and it was packed! Clubs are the “ticket” here in America now with bands touring.

      Anthrax played a club! Packaged with 2 other bands! Maybe the situation is different in Japan when it comes to “drawing in the fans” to large arena venues for concerts?

      Very cool you got to see Death Angel back in ’91… I’ll tell you this: Death Angel was scorching live when I saw them last month! (So was Testament and Anthrax too). \m/

      Wow… I got long winded… I just needed to explain the “concert venue” situation that is happening over here. Plus I DIG Extreme tremendously! 🙂

      • Metal Odyssey Says:

        Oops… I should have mentioned that Metallica & Iron Maiden could easily fill an arena or stadium by themselves. (I’m sure there will be a band I’ll miss mentioning). Still, the reality of “packaging” bands holds true here.

      • In Japan, although it’s nothing like it was in metal’s heyday of the ’80s, “big name” musicians can still sell out (or at least sell the majority of seats) at large venues.

        And concerts are normally only one band on the bill…no opening act. (Sometimes they will be an opening act though…when I saw Death Angel in ’91 in Tokyo, the Japanese band “Dead Chaplin” opened for them. But every other concert I’ve seen here was a one band concert.)

        Aerosmith, for example, recently sold-out the Tokyo Dome.

        I haven’t heard of any “package” concerts here. But there are music festivals such as “Summer Sonic”, “Fuji Rock”, and “Loud Park”.

        • Metal Odyssey Says:

          I imagine that is why so many “name” bands consistently tour Japan and have only positive comments about your country and it’s fans. Really. Back to those “package” tours… Def Leppard, Styx and Foreigner have been “packaged” together here and I believe other countries too, (as another example). Then there was Def Leppard, Styx and Reo Speedwagon touring together.

  2. >“Kid Ego” and “Decadence Dance” are my favorite “old school” Extreme songs. “Get The Funk Out” is cool.

    I think those songs are “OK”…nothing special.
    But I especially dislike the song “Little Girls”!

    I think their album “Waiting For The Punchline” is under-rated, though.

    >(their) album “Saudades de Rock” is…(their) GREATEST album to date! You would dig it, I just know!

    Alright. On your recommendation, I’ll check it out.

  3. >I imagine that is why so many “name” bands consistently tour Japan and have only positive comments

    Yes, I know that many western celebrities (musicians and actors) like Japan a lot.

    >Def Leppard, Styx and Foreigner have been “packaged” together…(and) Def Leppard, Styx and Reo Speedwagon

    Wow! Very “’80s”!
    I have Def Leppard “Pyromania” on my i-pod (and I saw them in concert once in the ’80s)…and, coincidentally, I happened to listened to a couple of songs from Styx “Grand Illusion” just today.

    I haven’t even thought about Foreigner or REO Speedwagon in many years! They have some good songs though.

  4. BTW, there is a Japanese rock band called “Pornograffiti”…I wonder if they named themselves after this album.

    • Metal Odyssey Says:

      Whoa! That is a cool name for a Rock band. I would venture to guess, that this band “did” take their name after this Extreme album. I mean, heck, how often does the word “pornograffitti” enter one’s mind? LOL!
