Tokyo stage, around 11:00 on July 23 (Sun)
KISS played on that day. Main stage.They opened 9:00 and two hours already passed.
Even though it was still in the morning, there were too few audience.
A little more people came in the afternoon, but it still looked like this.
They could spread a mat and sit on closed to the stage.
I can't believe this !!!!
This was Osaka stage on the day before July 22.
The daytime before KISS would show up.
It is not that the Japanese people hate Rock Festival. We have "FUJI ROCK FESTIVAL" in Japan, which has been held for 10 years. Just for your reference, this is the picture of "FUJI ROCK FESTIVAL", NOT "UDO MUSIC FESTIVAL".
This one is "UDO MUSIC FESTIVAL"
ALICE IN CHAINS live show. There were about 250 people in front of the stage....
The vocalist of ALICE IN CHAINS cynically said, "Nice picnic !!!!! !"
Probably, a half of the audience did not know about ALICE IN CHAINS. They listened to the songs with just standing.
Doobie Brothers "Can't see the audience!?!?!"
This was the second stage in the afternoon.
This was not a picture taken during the rehearsal. This was the actual show.
This was the second stage of the SANTANA group on the day before.
BEN FOLDS' live show, which was the last show.
The number of audiences was fewer than high school festival.
I heard that only 20 people were there for RICHARD JYULIAN.
It was really too bad for the musician.
Even "GODSMACK" which was proud of totally more than 10 million album sales in all over the U.S. looked like this. It's tearjerking.
The younger fans of "GODSMACK" who could not come to the festival because of expensive ticket and travel fees kicked themselves and said, "We brought shame on GODSMACK. They may never come to Japan."
Heavy fog rose after 17:00. Looks like heaven
, doesn't it?
We all know that fog often rises in the mountains in summer time.
Udo did not predict it? Of course there was nothing the audience could see on the stage.
The main stage for PAUL RODGERS and KISS around this time looked like this.
A little more people came, but light rain continued. It looked like refugee camp
Finally KISS appeared on the stage.
What? What? What?
What happened on earth???
Yeah, THEY WERE KISS!!!
....??? Oh...Were there really 2000 people? Wow...Ummmm...
People realized and gradually came up from other stages.
Even so, it looked like this.
Paul firstly said, "We have 40 thousand armies here tonight! ...oops, Do not turn around everyone !!!!
" We all burst out laughing.
Though Paul flied to the small stage at the back of the audience, there was no audience behind the small stage.
So, he had to sing toward the stage with having the light on his back so that we all could see only his dark face.
This is the stage in Osaka.
Believe it or not,.....
Wow!! they put up a tent
about 60 feet from the main stage.Staffs said nothing and just left it.
What about the other small stages?
This was also the actual stage, not in rehearsal.
Felt so sorry that no body could move.
The smallest number ever observed: only 2
Well, they might be staffs, not audience...
This is a concession area. There were amazingly no people! Staffs had a drink in desperation.
Oh!! Somebody, wake him up !!!!
He is a security guard...
What happened??? Was a bombing campaign commenced???
This was the fireworks after KISS show.
Though no animals were allowed in the festival, someone carry his cat in the bag.
How about having a cow milking corner
