Fortunetely I gave him the flowers and hugs. I had a very good 4th row seat from a friend of Masato. It was really close to the stage. I could see Bob very well. Inside of the venue smells something funny like incense. Smells same as Kurashiki. I know Hiroshi Posted the setlist alrady... February 14, 1997 Fukuoka 1. Down In The Flood 2. If Not For You 3. All Along The Watchtower 4. Positivily 4th Street 5. I'll Be Your Baby Tonight 6. Silvio 7. Friend Of The Devil @ 8. Masters Of War @ 9. One Too Many Mornings @ 10. Seeing The Real You At Last 11. Shooting Star 12. Maggie's Farm ------ 13. Like A Rolling Stone ------ 14. It Ain't Me Babe @ ------ 15. Rainy Day Woman #12&35 It seems like some people thinks, Japan tour has boring setlists 'Cept "Oh Babe, It Ain't No Lie". Bob didn't play it in Fukuoka last night. But still great setlists for me. I was looking at his face. it was amazing! And the guitar of "4th Street" and "Maggie"! He's singing, dancing(he acts like Chuck Berry), smiling (but not often as Kurashiki) and playing his guitar like playing his harmonica. Everybody was standing, and wanted to see Bob closer. During the encore I looked up Bob's eyes at very near from his feet. I thought He looked at me more than three times and he winked at me! I think He could see my flowers very well. But after "Rainy Day" Bob and band members were just leaving the stage. I could not hand up the flowers. Friends of mine helped my jump. So I jumped up on the stage and followed Bob. He was looking at me and seeing my flowers and said to me, "Oh! these flowers for me?" I smiled. "Thank you!" He smiled, I was feeling kind of funny when hear Bob's voice, I understand that now, Because it was Bob's voice without microphone. I hugged him, I felt fine. But, now, felt like I should say something!? I don't know what should I say??? I couldn't think anything. Maybe I shoud say like "Please sing 'When He Returns'with piano Bob," ??? I couldn't think anything. I said, "I'm going to all shows in Japan" He said, "Oh! that's good! So, see you next one!" I hugged him one more time. I felt fine very much. I'm waiting for Nagoya, Osaka, Sendai, Akita and Sapporo. Waiting for the next ones. It's kinda very strange feeling in my mind now, I don't really know what I really want to say. sorry itsuko
