This MrDog guy cares too much to express his dislike of a band he probably doesn't even know well. So you don't think much of the band or of Japanese music in general? Hmmm, so what? Does it matter so much for you? It probably doesn't matter much for them (the band).

"No, he was more like the George Bush who shot first and asked questions later. Kirk was always saying, 'set your phasers to kill'."

Was he indeed? I don't remember that! Well, I was so much more focused on Spock, so, nevermind...

The text also says they are performing for 15,000 at Yokohama Nissin Stadium, which is obvioulsy wrong. the Nissin Stadium has a 70,000 something capacity, and GLAY is the band that played for 200,000 in one concert, playing for 15,000 is pretty rotine for them.

these concerts were their very first venture in the west, and it's great that the Fillmore and the HOB were sold out - even if those are tiny places. How can someone be so stupid to think that being a huge band in Japan would mean they should play in huge venues in the U.S.? They haven't released anything outside Asia - in Japanese or in English -, they don't have significant tie-ins to anime, so it's not like they have to be famous out there. the band themselves said that they were going to play for the Japanese people living in the U.S., so if the majority of the attendance was Japanese it wasn't unexpected. However, people who were in the concerts said that a great part of the audiences were non-Japanese. it's not like the band is making a real attempt of making it into the U.S. market. I actually doubt that, since there's no U.S. release in sight. They are probably just trying things out, maybe they will just start playing concerts. They can come to Brazil, their show will be successful here too.
