Plan meet-ups, discuss/review the show, share the set list, report live from the show!

The first pre-Tokyo image comes from @dennycraft featuring a pair of acoustic show tickets:

"Ready to rock in Tokyo! #KISSROCKSJAPAN"

They're ending the tour in a big way! From 7000 seats at the last show to approximately 50,000 in Tokyo.

Tommy's awake!

@Tommy_Thayer:
It's 6 AM in Tokyo, just leaving for TV station for a very early morning performance! #KISSRocksJapan

They've been in Japan so long, look, he's even introduced the clipped wording and dropped the determiner in the English language such as "leaving for TV station" instead of "leaving for the TV station".

It's quite remarkable.

It must take a real show veteran to come across comfortable during a Japanese TV show.

Just so very, very different.

Bill Murray in Lost In Translation comes to mind.

PS. Gene's recent trout mouth look makes me wanna piss in his face, sorry, no but really...who EVER told him that he looks cool when doing that with his mouth?! :evil:

I wonder if they're performing Yume no Ukiyo ni Saitemina or Samurai Son for this show. I would expect the former, being they're together on Momoclo Z's home ground, and I think it would come off better. It'll be interesting to hear if KISS performs it as live as they have since Nagoya. I think that would be pretty cool, considering Momoclo Z has only performed it with a backing track and and not a live band so that's an adjustment.

Didn't they say that Momoclo is doing three songs with KISS? Probably Yume no Ukiyi ni Saitemina, and Samurai Son, then Rock and Roll All Nite.

Oh, I didn't hear that. Seems weird to do both - unless they turn it into a two-in-one medley somehow - considering they're nigh-identical musically. They're two different Songs, but to hear the same Tune twice in the set...

Visiting Japan was always on my bucket list. I really missed a great time to cross that one off.

Good job with the updates.

Looks to be filling up nicely with a decent distribution of seats being filled - so no obvious empty blacked-out sections of seats:

I've got the translation from the person who took the image - it basically says cameras and phones are fine, video equipment is not, please leave now.
