From For Whom The Bell Tells, February 8, 2019:
Wednesday 7th November
When travelling, they say that getting there is half the fun. As you can imagine, covering huge distances on tour, that is not always strictly true. But today we have one of those truly awesome travel experiences – we are heading, with Paul, from Tokyo to Nagoya on the Shinkansen “bullet train”, slicing through the beautiful Japanese countryside at up to 320km per hour. It is mindblowing to travel at such speeds – particularly when you are more used to the interminable drudgery of commuting in London.
As the train arrives in Nagoya station, we see a huge screen on a building opposite playing the music video for ‘Fuh You’. Paul films this on his iPhone, while security are urging him to disembark the train as it doesn’t hang about and he doesn’t want to find himself being carted off to the next destination! Paul jumps off just in time, much to the security team’s relief. As ever on this trip, he is greeted with the passion and excitement you’d expect for a first visit to the city.
Thursday 8th November – Nagoya Dome
The final show is upon us, rounding off another brilliant run. Following an electrifying performance, the audience in the stands organised themselves with signs to spell out the message “Japan Loves Paul”, while those on the floor of the venue formed the image of a Japanese flag. Paul is clearly buzzing from the experience tonight and the cumulative effect of his time in Japan. He’s clearly taken aback by the fans’ reaction here again. It looked incredible! Afterwards, there are drinks back at the hotel and Paul is chatting happily with the team when he pulls out his phone to show some pictures he took in the park in Nagoya earlier in the day. Japan is a place that can offer Paul a chance to be anonymous (behind one of those little dust masks which so many people wear over here) so once again he has been able to cycle around with little fuss. Just Imagine if the people around him knew he was whizzing by.
Anyway, it’s 1am and Paul decides it is time to call it a day – after all, he’s flying back to the UK in just a few hours.
Next up, Europe!
