Live in Japan

Post by Sheep » Mon Sep 14, 2009 9:33 am

Hi I'm new to this forum.
I've been their gigs in Japan, Osaka and Tokyo.
Both shows were soooo fantastic!!!! :) :) :)
Sometime I feel the stage sound is not perfect (cause only I was near speaker?) but still they all were wonderful :)

Setlist in Tokyo:


Many my favorite songs :)
but now Polaris is my most favorite album, hope they play more songs from Polaris in the future.

In Osaka setlist was almost same but "Will my soul ever rest in peace" is only at Tokyo.
Koti said Matias play this song first time. (maybe. I'm not good at English...)

Sorry for no live photos or videos because it's strictly prohibited in Japan, unfortunately :cry:

In Osaka I was in the front row, near Jens. I could see his amazing play so clearly!!

Also I'm very enjoyed guitar & bass solo, both of two are wonderful players!
And I'm fan of Lauri's other genre (ex. his solo albums) bass play too, so I'm happy to hear his varied play in this time :)
Maybe Lauri use his new bass guitar? I dont' know its detail but red one.

Before Osaka show, I met Jens at shopping street and got his autograph. I'm so lucky!
But at first my pen doesn't work well, Jens took it and write on his bag for fix it. I'm really sorry for inked his bag...
I thought Jens is crazy genius before but now I know he is also true gentleman :)

The setlist is getting better and better. I suppose they will add 2 more polaris songs in the future. I'd like to see Emancipation live when they come to Spain in January.

I went to their gig in Osaka. :)

Setlist in Osaka (One of my friend got this one.):

I think I should have gone to Tokyo too for "Will my soul ever rest in peace"!!!
Anyway you all should go to see them because their performance is really brilliant, you know !! :D
