【November 5, 2018, Both National Kokugikan Performances】
It is the third day of the performance in Japan in 2018. Originally it was only two days of Tokyo Dome and the Nagoya Dome, but later the two National Kokugikan performances were announced additionally. I was amazed at the Budokan performance in 2015 and 2017, but it is unbelievable that Paul is doing a concert at both countries’ Kokugikan. Capa is slightly smaller than Budokan, nominally about 7000 people. When visiting Japan in 2013 when it comes to Fukuoka performance, Paul itself seems to be very interested in sumo wrestling, like watching Grand Sumo wrestling Kyushu place and winning prize money, etc. Of course, both countries’ Kokugikan is also a venue for that sumo wrestling. On that day, the seat was also used as it was, it was a great success as it was sold as a day ticket to the ceiling seat even if it was fully occupied and filled with atmosphere as it was possible to enjoy Paul’s concert at a very short distance. There are only two places in the Kokugikan, and Paul occasionally imitated a sword when receiving sumo wrestling sumo wrestlers “occasionally” and it was a good feeling of being in a good mood all along. The set list was a digest that was cut several regular songs from the usual stage, but the performance was very hot and it was a wonderful thing to see in recent years rarely.

This work has recorded the performance of both the Kokugikan performances in super high sound quality. Although it is not in the front row, the sound image recorded in front of the A block has no one who emits an unpleasant cheer in the surroundings, there is almost no noticeable clapping, and it is recorded in a very clean and close range. It can be said that it is a miraculous recording in that bustling Kokugikan. There is nothing beyond this work in the audience recording of this day. Also included as a bonus track are messages for Paul himself’s performance this time in Japan, and messages telling you that the bilateral Kokugikan performance has been added.

Although the sound check was not made public on this day, the disc 3 of this work has become a DVD taken from the front of the stands of both countries’ Kokugikan concert. It is a very stable shot while recording one camera, and enjoying the state of the concert on the day that you fully recorded the concert using the zoom. From Piccadilly Circus Label, DVDs of both countries’ national sports halls are recorded with 4 cameras and edited professional shots DVDs are individually released, but this work is a separate recording of one concert while one camera As it is, it can be fully enjoyed.

From the performance in Japan in 2018, the third day November 5, Both the National Kokugikan performances are completely recorded with ultra-high sound quality at the arena front block. It is recorded with the highest sound quality in the past visit to Japan. You can chase in a real time on Paul’s live performance since 2003 and this time as well, you can have it on Piccadilly Circus label that delivered the latest tour from time to time as quickly as possible with high quality. I think that many titles will be released this time, but there is no need to compare with various others, if there is this work as a decision board it is good. Permanent preservation of a beautiful picture / disk specification A tightly pressed press. Japanese style attaching.
