I'm on my way to Saitama :dance:














...later this year...:angry::laugh3:

Gutted to be missing this as I couldn't work out my trip back quite yet, but to be honest it's not an incredible venue (though the next door John lennon museum's pretty cool), and I much prefer the Osaka crowds to Tokyo area ones, so those are the shows that are really gonna hurt :cry:

Lol @ this being called a 'Tokyo' show - might as well call gigs in Brighton 'London' shows :p

about 2 hours until showtime?

:dance:
Unless I've forgotten which way BST affects things, think so, yep!

Really Jenjie? I don't know what's more embarrassing, six years living in Japan and not remembering how their time differs from the UK, or 27 living in the UK and not knowing how BST works!! :laugh3::embarassed:

I'm managing to quite successfully convince myself that I'm gonna be gald to miss these Saitama gigs. I get distraught when Chris changes the 'dreaming of the Osaka sun' lyrics like he did at one of the London gigs. Wonder if it'll be 'Tokyo' or 'Kanto'. Surely won't be 'Saitama' (the armpit of Japan - though I jest - I do say that with affection) as they won't even admit they're playing there :p

Hopefully Chris'll play another cover of a Japanese song - the last one was so lovely, and just amazing to hear him do so well with it.

No Tokyo members here?

Surprising, I thought we had one or two from Japan on here just last year. Must have vanished.

^ There's a member called Yumi in the Lovers of Lovers in Japan group. Hopefully she's going to some of these gigs and will give us a little report...?

Would have been a good concert for Phil's Tweets, or this Live Update thing they've done for.. I think it was Lyon.

*wants something*
