Extreme announce special Japanese tour shows

Boston rockers Extreme have announced dates for a Japanese tour that will see them perform side three from their 1992 album, “III Sides To Every Story”, in full for the first time ever.

The concept album presented three sections – “Yours”, “Mine” and “The Truth” – and followed the 1990 breakthrough, “Extreme II: Pornograffitti (A Funked Up Fairy Tale)”, which featured the hit singles “More Than Words” and “Hole Hearted.”

The record’s third side, “The Truth: Everything Under The Sun", is an epic three-song, 22-minute epic recorded with a 70-piece orchestra.

“III Sides” peaked at No. 10 on the US Billboard 200 and went on to earn US Gold status for sales of more than 500,000 copies.

Extreme will launch a 5-date tour of Japan in Tokyo on September 29; they’ll also perform in Sendai, Osaka and Nagoya.

Ahead of the Japanese tour, Extreme will release “Pornograffitti Live 25: Metal Meltdown”, on September 23.

The package captures the band performing the 1991 album in its entirety at The Joint at the Hard Rock Casino in Las Vegas last year on the occasion of its 25th anniversary.
