    Default 2013 6.21 - VH at TOKYO DOME

    Everyone... This is mrC heading to the TOKYO show tomorrow.

    We've just been informed that CAMERAs and VIDEOS are OK for this TOKYO DOME show.

    This is a first as far as a I know. Japan is very hyper secure about unautorised photographs and video at concerts here so it's got some of us wondering if Dave had anything to do with this first time relaxing of the rules. ANOTHER VH first!

    Here's the UDO link
    http://udo.jp/Artists/VanHalen/news.html#130620

    And announcement and translation below.

    ■ ヴァン・ヘイレン 写真/ビデオ撮影について
    VAN HALEN からのお知らせです。
    バンドからの希望によりVAN HALEN公演に限り写真/ビデオ撮影がOKになりました。
    *但しプロ仕様及び不正使用はお断りします。

    TRANSLATION:

    ■ About Van Halen Photo / Video shooting
    This is to inform you of from VAN HALEN.
    *****Photo / Video shooting is now OK as long as VAN HALEN performances upon request from the band.**** ('',)b
    * However I will refuse the unauthorized use and professional.

    I'll try and post some pics video somehow this weekend.

    Wish us a great show people!

    Cheers... (it's my first time to see DAVE and ED together .. finally!)

    Warm regards,
    mrC. ('',)/

    How well did the Nagoya show sell? Looked like a pretty full arena in some of the photos.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    Was wondering in the nagoya thread in the tour forum how full VH will get the tokyo dome. capacity 55,000 or so. that's a stadium folks, not an arena.

    The only thing I'm holding out some hope for with the shows this year is a pro-shot show. I'm losing faith, though.

    They probably cut the seating down to 20,000 or so.
    Nagoya I'm pretty sure was a sell out around 7000 seating capacity.
    Smaller but well designed venue with good acoustics.
    You can not buy tickets anymore on the udo site for any of the shows.

    Really? I was thinking the opposite. Thought they would bring back the old 84 samurai shirt design for this tour.. looks like no effort from the artist on this design at all

    Yes indeed!

    Just got back.... \('',)

    I'm a musician and vocalist... and wow... DAVE was FULL-RANGE tonight...

    I was worried after last years youtube stuff... but the man delivered tonight.

    Band was hot.. show was great... weather was pre-typhoon.. and we all left happy.

    My review & pix

    https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?...1&l=fe7899789b

    I'm exhausted.. and will post some of my better pix tomorrow. I got a few good ones... but I wasn't super close... still they are quite fun.

    One point... they stopped two-thirds of the way through the show to show that short DLR film with sumo legend Konishiki who was in the audience tonight.

    Response was fairly good... although Dave's humor and the whole tattoo thing might have been lost in translation.

    Speaking of which... Dave was hot with the Japanese banter.. but thankfully did so sparingly. Everyone was impressed... as Japanese always are when gaijin performers speak Japanese. '-)

    Again... Dave was back on top, over the top, and back down again. Always a winner... King of the Hill.

    Cheers guys!

    Please let me know if you can catch the photos on my Facebook page...

    Warm regards,
    mrC. ('',)b

    Awesome you got to see such a mindblowing show. Nice to read comments from someone who was there, thanks for posting.

    I wonder how many people where there, and did VH get much publicity in the local newspapers and other media. I wonder if you got a tourbook program and if so, maybe you could post those pictures as well at your convenience.

    Heisenberg, most of the ticket holders got their tickets last year... which coincided with a lot of the PR for the ADKOT album.. but then Ed got sick and as you probably know the show was postponed for 7 months.

    Dave however has been a one man promo machine... on the radio... in some print media... with his Podcast...

    The only other promo that I've seen have been some posters (reprinted designs from last years promotion.)

    I'm sorry to say I didn't get any MERCH or tour programs... although I did catch a glimpse of some people's program who were sitting near me... looked amazing. Japanese paper is always super high quality and super glossy.

    Cheers!
