Did a show a couple of days ago at the Budokan.

 

 

Yes comrades. It’s been a couple of days. This jet-lag is a fucker. Hardly slept a wink. So . . .

 

Did a show a couple of days ago at the Budokan. Quite a prestigious gig. Bob Dylan played here back in the day as did a little known band from Liverpool called The Beatles. It’s quite a big deal. Up there with Madison Square Gardens, Wembley Stadium, the Hollywood Bowl and erm . . . the Boardwalk!!

 

Did it in the round and all, which I have to say I really like. That's the second time we've done that kind of thing on this tour and I love it. Not sure if the people behind the stage would agree but . . .  y'know . . . fuck 'em!!!

 

The gig was great. Very hot. My old mate Alan McGee turned up to see us which was nice as I haven't seen him in a long time. Great crowd. The heat didn't help the jet-lag though. I felt rooted to the spot. It really is a killer that gear.

 

So, yesterday after being chased through the train station we jumped on the bullet train to Nagoya. Had a gig in a mega little theatre. Stunning. Reminded me of one of my living rooms!!

 

Remember that girl what coined the phrase "Noel or die"? Well, anyway she was there with what seemed like a brand new posh as piss sign. Thing is the "Noel" and "die" bits were in bright luminous yellow and the "or" bit was in fucking navy blue all sewn (by hand one would imagine) onto a black background so all I could see was a sign that said "NOEL DIE!!" It was only when the lights went up at the end of the show that I realised what the fuck was going on!!

 

Great gig though.

 

Back in Tokyo now. Got some TV show to do today. No doubt it'll be utterly bizarre. They usually are. Singing live vocal to a backing track. I fucking HATE that gear. Mustn't grumble though.

 

Right . . . I'm off.

 

ONWARDS.

 

GD.

Hi Noel, It was cool to see you in Japan (during my holidays). I also saw you in London O2, Zurich and will be there in Montreux. Japanese were amazing during Whatever. Cheers

I was there, Noel. Don't Look Back In Anger made me cry--reminded me of back home in England! Live Forever.
