...Marie Ishikawa of Tokyo attended the show and told me that cameras were not allowed, so fan's photos were impossible. She also described a lot of moshing and singing along going on, particularly for the older familiar songs...(sounds a lot like the US shows!) She also says she caught Pat's water bottle when he threw it, and that some folks in the audience didn't think the set was long enough, but that they still loved the show! Thanks Marie!
