I want to make summary from many audience voice.
The audience number is not big than the big city, because, here is a small
town of northern side of Japan, it was very exciting standing gig and also
that was the first time to see Yngwie & his iron hand band on stage for the
most of the young audience.
The band sound was too loud to listen the detail for the beginner audience
but very exciting, band play was so tight, young boys were lost the word
with Yngwie fantastic acrobatically technical play and Marks God voice.
We noticed that Yngwie changed the set list from Japan, he add the new War
album speed tune "The Wizard" for Japan, and finally we can see the live
performance or beautiful barred "miracle of life". In the encore, " Smoke on
the water" ( well known Deep purple old famous tune) was wonderful gift for
the long years fans and also Young kids can enjoy with all of this, Yngwie
play was not only full copy of Mr. Blackmore sometimes double or more high
speed from original.
Boys d girls gives me many emails until now, everybody said big thanks to
Yngwie for coming such a small town and show up the great world highest
level music, every thing was beautiful and awesome,

™New Marshall Amp. combination (50W+100W+50W) made amazing Strat sound !!
and new stage staff of Dry ice jet !!

Many new generation kids were coming and share the fantastic magical
experience.
One boy can't believe that moment comes true in his life, his great Guitar
hero Maestro Yngwie J. Malmsteen was standing in front of him, he can't
believe such an amazing live performance was going on. Everything are just
going like an day dream.
The capacitance of Venue looks between 2500 to 3000 ( Sorry, I don't know
exact number), it's be a full audience (sold out) show,

In Osaka, it's a fantastic night, Yngwie play was so emotional, sound
balance was perfect, new settings of Strat sound was amazing, the audience
were truly happy with everything, we got an extra long solo of Yngwie, many
classics piece and emotional speed phrases. Yngwie play was precise than
before, many audience notice this fact.
I know it7s from Concerto suite effect.
We saw Yngwie added so many cool ad-lib play in the backing play one every
tune. It's made the song became more thrilling and exciting than original
(Album version).
I know in the album, Yngwie play was some cut out from one moment his play,
it's not the only one like the other musician, into the live stage
performance Yngwie was keep creating his a work of art, he gave us always
more great spiritual performance, miracle was always happen in everywhere.

Unfortunately, new set list "Blue" (replace of "Red House") was almost
reached to the final phase, it's should be finish by the Yngwie great
Guitar, but the guitar lost the voice, Yngwie looks very sad with this
accident. Mark's high power shout and great screaming miracle voice, this
high tone voice are makes us realize that this combination of Yngwie and
Mark is No.1 team in the world.
Everybody hope to keep this great relationship forever, we want to see them
again, again , again.
Nobody didn't have such a perfect satisfaction before Yngwie band gave us
completely great music experience, new age of young kids are perfectly fall
in love with Yngwie world, this Yngwie live performance and awesome music is
completely have a great distance from others one. they think they saw the
God on the stage.
