|...The Kosei Nenkin hall is a very nice hall, that is (unfortunately) seated right up to the stage. This prevented the steamy 'mush pit' effect we've seen so much of on this tour. One things for sure however, no one could complain about their view of the band! The overall effect was a bit muted, with plenty of mass jumping up and down in place, enough so that i was bobbing up and down while trying to take pictures by the stage...! However, we can be sure that these fans were stoked, due to the post-show mob that descended on the band's van as it made its way out of the venue. That's something we've not seen much of on this visit, after plenty of it on past Japan tours. There were also high numbers of post show hotel lobby autograph and picture seekers tonight. Took me right back to '97!
