My band will be touring Asia. anyone got advise

HI all, in about 3 weeks time my band will most likely be doing a 3 month tour of asia, china, hong kong and maybe Japan.

Anyone who has lived there, lives there, been there or has played there, could you post anything that a musican going to asia might find helpful or what its like. Anthing would be great.

Thanks.

I toured Japan with my band in the beginning of may, and I tell you dude, there isn't much you'll have to think about, those super-efficient asian guys takes care of virtually everything
Two things that I've learned though was, first, try to keep your feet on the ground, because probably the response will be amzing, and it can be hard to tackle, especially if you're not used to the attention. Secondly, as someone kind of pointed out above, do not get emotinally involved with someone on the otherside of the globe, trust me on this, it is not something I would recommend
Otherwise I can simply congratualte and with ease tell you that this will be the best three months of your life up til then.

I lived in Japan for a year.

My advice: Sleep with as many hot asian girls as possible.



Peace,

haha I misread the title - I thought it said "my band will be touring with asia".

I was going to say my only advice would be to study everything guthrie govan does, and try to figure out if he's human or not.

I love that guy. he bewilders me like no-one else.

I'm told that it is not hard to find bars where you can trade things like jeans and baseball hats for women. Just thought I'd point that out in case you've got some old clothes.
