Extreme Plan Pornograffiti Concerts

01/25/2012
.
(Gibson) Extreme will perform their 1990 breakthrough album Pornograffiti in its entirety in Japan later this year.

The band quietly unveiled Japanese dates over the weekend on their official website. They will play consecutive nights at the Tokyo Dome City Hall on April 16 and 17, and at Namba Hatch in Osaka on April 18. Although no other dates have been announced, it would be rather unusual for the band to go to all the trouble of re-learning all of the material for only three shows.

The album's full title is Extreme II. Pornograffitti (A Funked Up Fairy Tale). It peaked at #10 on the Billboard 200, and included the song "More Than Words," which hit #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1991. The album's other acoustic-based track, "Hole Hearted," reached #4. But the majority of the album's tracks were post-Van Halen rockers, including "He-Man Woman Hater," which features intro and outro solos by Dweezil Zappa. At the time Extreme guitarist Nuno Bettencourt also contributed to Dweezil's solo album Confessions, including a ripping solo on a cover of the Bee Gees' "Staying Alive." more on this story
