This was my second Guns N’ Roses show that I have seen, since moving to Japan in 2001. My wife likes Man With A Mission, so it was a win-win for both of us! It was my first trip to Saitama Super Arena, and I have to say I was very impressed. I had no idea there were actually two inner walls, blocking the sound from the lobby (no wonder you can’t hear anything from out on the street!), much like a music studio.
The sound was great…nowhere near as garbled as it was when I seen them at Makahari-Messe, back in 2007. One thing though…whoever introduced GNR called out “TOKYO!!!”, rather than Saitama…even the concert tees had “Tokyo” printed on them. Kinda funny…
Neither of us stayed for the entire show (my wife left after MWAM finished their opening set), with me leaving about 90 mins into GNRs set.

I moved to Japan in 1990. And I saw Guns ‘N Roses at the Tokyo Dome in January 1993 on their “Use Your Illusion” Tour.

I do, too.

That’s normally done at shows by international bands when they play in Tokyo, Saitama, or Chiba. They say / write the city as “Tokyo” (it’s OK though…it is the “Tokyo area”.)
>Neither of us stayed for the entire show
I missed my son, needed to get home to him, plus beat the after concert rush
