Mr. Big Japan Press Conference

Hey guys, here is a new update from Mr. Big about their reunion tour and stuff, taken from Random Chatter Music as always. According to the blogsite, the press conference about Mr. Big's upcoming reunion tour has been done on February 9 at 20.00 (Japan time) in Roponggi. There are some important point revealed from the press conference such as, the plan for a new album (or a re-release maybe), quiz (giveaways) to meet and greet with Mr. Big and the release of new hits album.
However since Random Chatter acquired the source in Japanese and requires a heavy load of translation, the info may not to as much as we would expect.

Where here are the details:
1) It seems that the Japanese record media are planning to re-released Mr.Big's old records and will have fans vote from "Mr.Big", "Lean Into It", "Bumb Ahead" and "Hey Man", once again it is according to Random Chatter Music.
2) There is also a some kind of quiz that will start on April 22, where fans willl be asked to send messages to Mr. Big and 20 of them will be selected randomly to win a chance to see a special free show of the band.
3) There will also be a new limited edition of Mr. Big hits album, titled Hits Test Gray (according to this source) which consist of the U.S. rockers' famous tracks from Paul' era to Richie's (you'd better see the titles yourself on the sources since some of the translation is awful)
4) Good news for those who would likely to miss out on the upcoming tour as the band plans to record their upcoming gig at Budokan in DVD and CD!!!
5) The band also did an acoustic performance at the press conference playing songs like : "Daddy Brother Lover Little Boy", "Green Tinted Sixties Mind", "Wild World" and "Alive and Kickin"
Strangely the are still no details added for the upcoming tour, however Mr. Big will be back to Japan for another appearance at the Dave Fromm Show, which a radio show in Japan, on February 11 where they will also do a live performance there and more details might be also be revealed at the show... so keep reading our post for more info about the reunion.
