Absoutely brilliant. Loved every moment of it. These Saitama concerts were something special for Vertigo. It made the bad performances of Vertigo look like complete shit.

This had one of the best performances of Desire. Miss Sarajevo was surprisingly great for once (even though I don't think it's a particularly good song live). One Tree Hill was, as ever, great. All I Want Is You finished off a fantastic show.


Recording: Audience microphone - 4.5 stars


Good Japanese crowd. Not as crazy as I thought they'd go.


Loved the performance so much, and the sound, that I had to give it 5 stars overall. The audience was good, but not brilliant. But still, I'm giving it 5 stars.
