Published Jun 12, 2019After celebrating the classic Fantasma back in 2016, Japanese music hero Cornelius will be doing the same for follow-up Point, which he will be playing in full on a North American tour. What's more, Keigo Oyamada will be treating his beloved 2002 album to an expanded and remastered reissue.
Following a string of full-album shows in his native Japan this summer, Cornelius will be playing the entirety of Point during a brief West Coast tour, which at long last will come to Canada. Cornelius will play Vancouver's Imperial on October 2.
You can see all the North American dates for the Point tour below.
As for the Point reissue, the album will be remastered and expanded to include various B-Sides and remixes from the era by the likes of Kings of Convenience, Matthew Herbert and Yann Tomita. The reissue will arrive digitally on July 31, while a CD and vinyl versions are slated for a North American release sometime in the fall.
