Announcing the gigs Paul said…
“Having frequently visited Japan during my time in Mansun I am absolutely delighted to be returning to Japan to perform with my guitarist Ben Sink. I have always said to the Japanese fans who still follow me it would be a dream to return, and that dream has now become a reality.
I will play both songs from my solo career and Mansun songs and I’m looking forward to seeing fans who I have not seen for a long time and also to see new fans who have become fans of my solo career or discovered Mansun since the band’s split. See you at the gigs! Paul”
