Toshi kicked off the "In The Universe Tour" on August 31st and it is going well so far. Featuring string ensumble and giving "more accoustic feel", the two hour set is quite different from Toshi's classic "Funk Party" vibe and audience are enjoying to discover a different side of Kubota's musical interpretation.
Two shows are also added for October 30th and 31st at Kokusai Forum Hall A in Tokyo.
