Libera In Japan 2005 ~ 2007 Book


Here's an awesome surprise! Back in 2008, EMI Classics published a special photo book of Libera's many trips to Japan from 2005 - 2007. There were 1000 copies made in Japan only, so it's a pretty rare book. Fan de LoK bought one of these books from Japan and scanned the pages to share with everyone! This thing is loaded with awesome pictures!

In April 2005, Libera had their first concerts in Japan - April 7 in Tokyo and April 8 in Yokohama.

Look how little they all were! :D

I love the picture on the left of Callum hugging little Zach!
And that alligator is bigger than Jonathan! Back then anyway!
Back row: Raoul Neumann, Jake Shortall, Ben Crawley, Conor O'Donnell, Joe Platt, Joe Sanders-Wilde, Sam Abouelfaid
Middle row: James Vereycken, Callum Payne, Jonathan Barrington, Josh Madine, Tom Cully, Sam Leggett
Front row: Liam Connery, Michael Horncastle, Michael Vereycken, Zach Lockett, Ed Day
Not pictured: Anthony Chadney, Sam Coates, Steven Geraghty, Simon Lewis, Chris Robson 

Libera went back to Japan just 6 months later for concerts in Nagoya October 27, Yokohama October 28 and Tokyo October 30.

Having fun at the airport and on the bus.

At a Meet & Greet

Asakusa is an historic area of Tokyo that contains the famous Senso-ji Temple.

I love all of these pictures!

I love them trying to use chopsticks!

February 14-19, 2006, 7 Libera boys went to Tokyo to do a promotional tour for a Japanese TV series called "Ice Wall" that used "Far Away" as its theme song. Libera was interviewed on TV, radio and at a press conference with actor Tamaki Hiroshi. The boys that got to go were Tom Cully, Ed Day, Michael Horncastle, Josh Madine, Conor O'Donnell, Callum Payne and Michael Vereycken. Steven Geraghty also went along but didn't sing.

Then Libera went to Japan in 2007 for concerts in Osaka April 11, Nagoya April 12 and Tokyo April 14.

I love this!

So much candy to choose from!

I wonder who the other 999 lucky people are who own this book? Thank you to Fan de LoK for sharing his! :D

One More Channel Islands Photo!

Libera posted their Channel Islands photo album today! You can see it here. They are all the same pictures from their blog except for one! I'm pretty sure it's from when they were on Jersey. It's Michael U-R and Ciaran waving from a boat. There's 2 other boys we can't see. And is that Josh driving the boat?!! He has a black hoodie on! They're definitely having fun! =D
