Survive Said The Prophet

Japanese band Survive Said The Prophet kicked off its 22-concert domestic tour promoting its latest album, Inside Your Head, on Friday (Feb. 21) at the Liquidroom in Tokyo.

As the Japanese entertainment industry grapples with the conundrum of whether or not to go ahead with scheduled concerts and tours as reported cases of the new coronavirus spreads, frontman Yosh shared his thoughts on green-lighting the tour while taking necessary precautions and thanked fans for coming.

"Welcome to the first day of our tour! In the midst of various news, everyone on our team did everything possible to make this day happen," he assured the crowd. "Let me just say that those who love music haven't done anything wrong. Really, thank you so much for coming to the opening day of the Inside Your Head tour!"

The five-man band performed a set centering around tracks from the new album, which dropped Jan. 15, mixed with older hits and fan favorites from their catalog.

The tour travels all over Japan, hitting cities in Hokkaido this week and wrapping in Okinawa at the end of May.
