is the festival called "pre-Summer Sonic"? How weird. Isn't SummerSonic 3 dates in different cities anymore?
Sorry for confusing, eva.
The festival isn't called "pre-Summer Sonic festival", but in fat it is. Summer Sonic 2 days festival, one day in Tokyo and the next day in Osaka. It's just like Reading/Leeds.
They also have the "Sonic Mania" one day before the festival (9th August) in Tokyo which the Roses are headliner. Beady Eye only play for one day at Summer Sonic in Tokyo (10th August), but not in Osaka on 11th August. Therefore the Creativeman (The festival promotor) decided to have an another "pre-gig" in Osaka on 9th August and Beady Eye are headliner.
sorry i still dont understand, does the pre-Summer Sonic festival ticket is the same as the Summer Sonic festival ?
No, as far as I know, you do need to buy a separate ticket for this gig. One day ticket for Summer Sonic costs about 150 Euro's. You can buy 2 days tickets. For Sonic Mania you need to buy a separate ticket as well.
Does anyone has the whole concert available? Summer sonic festival, thanks cheers.
You mean the one they've done in 2011, right? I don't have it, but I do have 3 Zepp gigs (Tokyo, Osaka, Nagoya) they've done in September 2011, so just let me know if you would like me to upload them for you.
