In 2006, Sweetbox toured Japan & Korea in support of the then released album, Addicted.The 12 date tour during August of that year would be known as the Addicted To Japan tour whilst simply being known as the Addicted tour in Korea.
Many of you might have seen the footage from the korean shows filmed from the audience, but it’s long been rumoured since the tour that there MIGHT be footage from the Japanese release.
Well, it seems that this isn’t rumours. (So far) videos from a date on the Japanese tour has been posted on youtube by user Jadeholic! Check out Killing Me DJ & Crown of Thorns below!

Well Sweeties, after watching the cover version of Justin Timberlake’s Mirror with David Choi, we’ve been pondering for a while…have you seen or heard a cover version of a Sweetbox song that you want to share with other fans?
We’re sure they’re out there, but we want to hear what you’d share.
One of our favourites is this from SECRET in Korea with the ever popular Life Is Cool
So come on, we’ve shared ours, now share yours. Leave a comment on the blog or tweet us your video to our twitter account.
If we get enough, we’ll make a feature of it on our blog! So what are you waiting for? Get scouting those covers!!
Would you believe it! Classified is 12 years old today! For those who don’t know/haven’t seen the original obi strip from the Japanese release, on it had Classical + Modified = Classified. It would spawn 4 singles, which you can see the videos for below:
For The Lonely
Trying To Be Me
(see HQ versions of the video on the official Sweetbox channel!)
Apart from the bonus tracks for the Japanese version, the only difference is that Every Time Interlude is a WHOLE minute longer on the Japanese release compared to the others!
So tell us what your favourite track from the album is either by leaving a comment or by coming over to Twitter (we’ll retweet replies!)
Yesterday (9th March 2011), Jamie visited several radio stations in California, in what is believed to be some promo for the upcoming album, Diamond Veil. Jamie uploaded a clip from one of the stations with her singing a snippet from Bulletproof, one of the songs on the album. Check it out below!
