The Japanese rock band performed their best hit songs in this one-hour event held at Switch
Instead of taking a direct flight back to Japan from Jakarta, where they performed at the WAKU WAKU Japan Music Festival on Saturday, flumpool made a quick pit-stop (of about 12 hours) in Singapore for a special fan meet with fans. More than 300 people turned up to catch Ryuta Yamamura, Genki Amakawa, Seiji Ogura and Kazuki Sakai perform at the YES 933 special mini live acoustic session, held at Switch by Timbre, last Sunday.
Even though the mini fan event, which saw the group perform five of their hits – including a cover of The Beatles ‘In My Life’, lasted for only an hour, fans were still touched by flumpool’s fleeting visit.
During the group’s last visit in Singapore for the 2013 Music Matters Live Festival and a music showcase for fans in May last year, guitarist Kazuki was on a much-talked about diet programme – on a mission to lose 20kg in two months, and fans finally got to see his new slim physique up close on Sunday.
flumpool shared their upcoming plans for 2014 at the fan meet and spoke of their 5th anniversary Japan tour which will kick off on April 19 at Fukuoka. Before this, the band will join renowned acts such as Mayday, Ascent Chan and JiaJia Ji to perform at the annual Spring Wave Music Festival held in Taiwan in April 4 to 5. The group is also currently working on an upcoming compilation album release comprising of their best music hits since their debut in 2008.
