A lucky handful of Japanese fans got to experience the full tenacious force of Crush 40 in Toyko over the weekend just gone, with two shows over two nights at the Shibuya GUILTY venue followed by a meet and greet session on Sunday night. Johnny Gioeli and Jun Senoue were joined by Takashi Kaneda and Toru Kawamura to create a full-bodied ensemble to present a history of Crush 40 tracks covering three decades.

Inside Games Japan were on the scene to cover the events, snapping a host of photos over the course of the night (so a big thank you to them!). The site reports a fantastic time had by the entire audience, which also comprised of Takeshi Iizuka (Head of Sonic Team) and Tomoya Ohtani (Sonic Team Sound Director, Composer) who were watching from the balcony.

  2. Rabid-Noodles says:

    I remember seeing Jun post the list on twitter. I really hope they could come over to the UK sometime and play a big playlist like that. D;

  3. Sonication says:

    So, there is a song called “Everything” on that list that I do not think I have heard. Interesting…

    Say, I wonder if, and when they’ll release these news songs in the form of a CD track or something?

  4. MrMetalloidMan says:

    They play Hardline but not Axel Rudi Pell? For shame…

  5. I REALLY want to see a freakin Crush 40 concert. Like REALLY.

  6. How jealous am I right now?!?! I’ve seen them the once but it was beyond awesome! I so SOOOOOO hope they’re playing at SoS this year, I really wanna see em perform the new tracks especially!
    *Crosses fingers, legs, eyes, nose… *

  7. Were all the songs full length? If so, what a concert!!

    Everything is an amazing Hardline song, but then again anything off Double Eclipse is anyway. Taking Me Down would go down well as would Change Of Heart.

  8. TrueBlue170 says:

    My God. I would KILL to see these guys live. Shame I live in England, and no-where near London. :(

  9. RaiTiger26 says:

    Now Crush 40 come to England and give us a Raving party

  10. I would kill to see them live, especially with 24 tracks!

  11. Congrats to those lucky people who got a chance to hear them back in action!
    Wonder what they have in store for Sonic Boom 2012?!
