Joao Gilberto's Japan Tour postponed
In the very last minute, João Gilberto decided today to postpone his Japanese tour that would begin November 1st at the Tokyo International Forum. All tickets were sold-out since 3 months ago. Now the first 2 concerts in Tokyo are scheduled to December 13 & 14 in the same venue. The dates in Yokohama will be announced soon. But the plans for the official DVD release of the 2006 Japan tour seem to have ruined, since the final editing was rejected by Gilberto. Nevertheless, bootleg copies of the NHK broadcast continue to be sold in the Japanese black market for over 2oo dollars. Another company is now interested in filming the forthcoming December concerts.
