Beady Eye support 'old friends' in Japan
Beady Eye organised a charity concert for earthquake victims in Japan because they have "old friends" there.
The 'Bring The Light' band decided to organise the event in London - which will include performances from Primal Scream, Paul Weller and Richard Ashcroft - because they have always been treated with respect in Japan both as members of Oasis and with their latest group.
Speaking ahead of another charity show, for Teenage Cancer Trust at the Royal Albert Hall, last Friday (25.03.11), guitarist Gem Archer said: "There's a real long relationship. I mean, some of these Japanese fans are old friends now, let alone the people in the record companies and whoever else we've met. So then this idea came up of, 'Why don't we just get something together and then give all the money to the Red Cross'. "
The musician added he is pleased with the reception to Beady Eye - which is comprised of all the members of Oasis minus Noel Gallagher - in Japan, with their debut album 'Different Gear, Still Speeding' being a hit and a tour selling out weeks in advance.
He told Absolute Radio DJ Ben Jones: "We are meant to be going, I think, in about three weeks, four weeks, and those shows all sold out in the blink of an eye.
"It's a small club tour, but they were like bang on it, and they stuck our album at number one."
The earthquake charity concert will take place at London's 02 Academy in Brixton on April 3 with all proceeds going to the British Red Cross Japan Tsunami Appeal.
Highlights from the week long shows for Teenage Cancer Trust can be heard on Absolute Radio in the UK.Posted on 28 Mar 2011 16:15 to category : Music News
