THANK YOU, good people of Nagoya



BRIAN MAY: THANK YOU, good people of Nagoya

 Yes – THANK YOU, good people of Nagoya – for a truly wonderfully warm reception. So why have I been so quiet ? I was going so well, wasn’t I ?! But now I have been finding it hard to post anything – because emotionally I’m still trying to process the emotions I felt on our first night. Elation to be back with such loyal and generous fans in Nagoya – a city we have always felt especially close to – but also pain of various kinds. I found it hard to be so far away from your faces, your hands, your hearts and voices in that colossal Dome. Seeing so many great comments reassures me that our production was suitably colossal too. And that our intent came across. But, in the moment, I felt very uncertain – searching for that special two-way connection across a gulf dictated by the geometry of the situation. It was hard to hear you – hard to feel the energy that you were giving back to us. And hard to see you in the vastness, especially with those almost horizontal spotlight beams directly in our eyes. So it took a lot of faith to believe that it was all going as it should. So now I feel we will be better prepared. We’ll make a few changes, as we always do, and adjust our expectations !! Perhaps in working so hard to make sure you all had a good time we forgot that it all works best when WE have a good time too !! 😊 Or maybe it’s all in my head.

Either way, look out OSAKA — cos here we come !!!
