J-pop band MONKEY MAJIK kicked off its 2018 Singles Collection domestic tour Sunday (Nov. 11) at NHK Hall in Tokyo. The hybrid band with two Canadian and two Japanese members will perform 13 shows before the end of the year.
As the title suggests, the current tour's set consists mainly of the Sendai-based group's hit singles from its 2006 debut track, "fly," to this year's viral "Umarvelous" featuring comedy duo Sandwich Man. The lineup features acoustic and rock numbers familiar to Japanese audiences through their use in commercials and TV dramas.
After playing eight songs for the cheering crowd of 3,500 fans that packed the hall, frontman Maynard Plant announced the band's second collaboration with fellow Sendai-based artists following the recent hit record with Sandwich Man.
