The Glasgow three-piece will be covering U2 classics at an exclusive event in Tokyo.
December, the Glasgow rock band acclaimed for its U2 covers, will be holding a limited-capacity fan gathering in Tokyo on 3 December, the night before U2 open. With a setlist including songs from their 2017 U2 cover album 33 as well as original tracks, the night is sure to appeal to die-hard U2 fans interested in something new. The event will take place at The Ruby Room and, as it is restricted to 120 attendees, is expected to sell out.
Since they released the U2-inspired "Alison Stewart" and a cover of "A Sort of Homecoming" in 2016, December have called upon by U2 fan clubs around the world to come and play fan events before U2 open in their cities. The journey has taken the band from Sao Paulo in Brazil to Montreal, Belfast and Berlin.
"This one is totally out of the blue but we are thrilled to be heading to Japan to play for U2 fans gathering in the city," said Scott, December's guitarsit. "We've been completely honoured these last few years by the generosity of the U2 community. These events are a great opportunity for fans to gather and share experience. We're not a tribute band but our aim at these events is to pay tribute to U2 and their music which has meant so much to us."
The band recently released their final U2 cover with a version of "The Refugee" from 1983’s War album. Have a listen below.
