I'm Megumi from Tokyo Japan, a member of The Organizers of Rory Gallagher Tribute Festival in Japan.
It has been almost one month since our tribute in Japan, 21 October 2017.
Thank you very much for having continuous interests.
It closed in a great success which we have not expected so much. More than 20 performers including 4 bands and session guest players and 60 audience made almost over-the-maximum-capacity of the venue. Seemed not all of the audience had known well about Rory, but believe they went home being shocked, satisfied and being new Rory-fans.
We hope you to come to Tokyo and join us next year, maybe in October 2018.
