The last time they came to Japan was back in 2001.
So we have been waiting for this moment for 17 years! It was worth it!
What a powerful performance. We had a blast!

I had a great opportunity to take photographs of legendary UK progressive band Camel this week.
Thank you for an unforgettable evening. They played almost 3 hours with great passion and energy. What a show!
I’ve never thought one of my bucket list artists appears in front of my camera so soon!
The last time I saw Stewart Copeland was The Police’s reunion tour back in 2008 in Tokyo.
I was in the audience and watching the show.
I couldn’t be happier… Now I’m working as a photographer and capturing him! Words can not describe my feeling.
The shooting was really tough. I was allowed to shoot first 3 songs only from the far side.
I could hardly find space to move.
I think the audience in the front row might get better shots with their cell phones…
Anyway, it’s my job and I was allowed to bring my big Sony and telephoto lens. The first 3 songs were played from their self-titled debut album “Gizmodrome”. I felt the shooting time was too short!
When I was leaving the venue, I could hear they play “Miss Gradenko” from The Police’s last album “Synchronicity” which I used to listen at least ten thousand times. I was filled with deep emotion and almost in tears.
