I reached the next day as I didn't get over the excitement:-)
I took too much it easy, and I reached venue to the very limit in opening time! However, I was able to go again in front of a stage:)
3 songs of connections of the beginning were very comfortable:D Setlist changed little to Osaka show. Harmonica of "Colder" soaked into my heart;) "Why Does It Always Rain On Me?" was enjoying jump together above all!!!
It's saying that the gig of Nagoya does not swell very much, but I swell very hard on this day and I think that many people were able to enjoy it:P My friend was a gig of first Travis, and she was fantastic with the tone of the guitar of Andy and was said to have been very happy. Good job all!!

Why Does It Always Rain On Me?
We enjoyed this show. It was soooo amazing as well. They removed a few songs from their setlist, but their show was still wonderful as always.
Love Will Come Through was beautiful!!! The crescendo from brack down part was sooo brilliant, beautiful, excellent in Nagoya!!! I like that part. And everyone became a human metronome. We really enjoyed that! Side was very powerful and heavy in the show. When Fran jumped from Neil's bass drum, he crouched for a while. He had lost his breath a little. Driftwood was awesome as always. I really like this song. The bass line was so buautiful. And during this song, Andy hit the mic of his guitar amplifier and knocked it down. Dougie was very laughing at this happening. It was very funny moment. As You Are was Andy's show time! His guitar was very beautiful and emotional! I like his solo part in this song.
The setlist was very similar to that of Osaka. I had felt ending of the first set on the outro of Before You Were Young. ...At that time, Fran put a harmonica on his neck!!! I expected them to play Colder!!! I was so excited. I love every sound in this song! I love this song!! The next was Turn!!! It was more exciting moment. When Dougie was singing, Fran and Andy were picking each other guitars. On the outro in this song, Fran was picking the back body side (no strings) and he was playing his guitar with his mic-stand. They seemed to be enjoying it very much. And, we enjoyed this song!
There was no Fran's solo song in Nagoya. But they didn't remove Dougie's song. Ring Out The Bell was beautiful as well as other songs. And Dougie's Japanese "arigato" was perfect! Fran whispered something to Neil, Dougie and Andy before they played My Eyes. What did he say at that time???(I really want to know!) During My Eyes, Everyone felt euphoria . I love that moment. And they switched off the mic, and Fran introduced Claes, Neil Andy, Dougie and himself. Fran said "I am,I am me". It was very funny. And they played Flowers In The Window without a mic! The band were having so much fun. The last song was Why Does It Always Rain On Me?. Everyone sang, jumped, jumped, and jumped !!!!!
It was another best show for me. We sang every song. We enjoyed every moment of this show. We had a great time!
and,Thank you for playing Colder. I had thought that I have never chance to listen to this song. They didn't come to Japan for TBWNN tour. They only came to Japan for festivals. And their show was very short in festivals. We had never chance to listen to album songs, B-sides, and covers. And, they have played Colder only few times in TBWNN tour. I never expected them to play songs(Follw The Light, Somewhere Else, Coming Around,…etc) which didn't appear in recent shows well. Because, to play these songs in the show, they maybe need rehearsal, and need time for rehearsal. And they had maybe no time for rehearsal before they came to Japan. Because they were maybe very busy touring Europe. And, Fran's voice condition.....etc.
But,they had played Colder! Thank you for playing Colder!
Before they played Why Does It Always Rain On Me?, Fran said "Everyone, it's amazing, you are so cool tonight. Thank you. Last time we go here with like 10 years ago. This is too long. We were meant to come back twice.…(He said that he had caught a weird disease.)…Anyway we're back, we're here and you came, thank you. We promise, we promise, scout's honor that it won’t be 10 years, you know, would be allowed sooner before come back. we come back soon..... We're gonna see you soon very well!"
9 years? 8 years? I know, everyone says "soon", it's actually not soon. But, we want to believe his words.
See you "SOON"!!! Please come to Japan not only for festivals but also for every album tour! At the next time, please prepare a lot of songs!
