ERIC MARTIN Japan Tour 2017 mini review!

ERIC MARTIN’s “U.S.A. Pop Brigade” Japan Tour 2017

feat. Steve Brown & PJ Farley (TRIXTER)

Avex staff enjoyed the opportunity to witness first hand ERIC MARTIN’s concert during his recent Japan tour. Eric has never sounded, nor looked, better considering his extensive and successful career. Every song performed was like a “sing-a-long” with fans ranging from the young to an age “of the then times.”

Eric and his band performed for about an hour and forty minutes that included solo hits, MR. BIG hits and a couple of his supporting band mates from TRIXTER’s hits. We heard it had been over twenty years since Steve and PJ from TRIXTER have visited Japan. Eric’s stage presence and audience interaction was amazing with all excited and thrilled to be back in Japan.

After the show Avex staff were invited backstage to speak with Eric and his band mates to say hello and discuss a little business. We all are extremely excited about our new business relationship and look forward to a long and fruitful business relation. Eric’s song catalog, which proved still has the power to appeal and attract both existing and new fans, will enrich Avex Music Publishing’s content representation.
