I returned from the trip the day before yesterday. I went to Tokyo (by air) to see the Pepper's show. I went to two shows (11/2, 11/3). Both shows were sold out. I think 10000 capacity each show. Honestly the shows were awesome. I really really enjoyed, moved...I can't say enough,but I'll never forget these experiences. There were no seats...all standing. Anyway I got really low reference number so I saw both shows at first row (in front of John). On the first day (before the show started), Chad suddenly walked around the stage and he shook hand with the audience of the first row (Yes, I shook hand with him!). Both shows were really great but I think "Day 2" is much better...Lots of jams, improvisations...and they did "Suck My Kiss" and "If You Have To Ask" (I think it's one of the best versions I ever heard!). Honestly "By The Way" was not my favorite...but I changed my mind. Some of the songs from "By The Way" were very good, especially "Venice Queen" was very cool.
