Default Tokyo 2016 - Improv Song (or anything else, really)

I know, itīs been over two freaking years but I didn't give up.

I live on the other side of the world and somehow, though the power of luck, my 30th birthday and a really kind japanese man, I managed to attend the first Tokyo concert of Damien. Actually, it was through some miracle of life, really.
That was on June 6th, 2016.

Japanese concert attendees are incredibly polite. No cameras, no screaming (thankfully), absolutely an amazing experience. Which sort of sucked, though, because there are so few audios and so little videos. And for crying out loud, that night I got to drink wine on stage during Cheers, Darlinī and I ONLY HAVE ONE SINGLE PHOTOGRAPH OF THAT MOMENT! Itīs been over two years and i still suffer over that, hah. So in the end I hoped that the crowd wouldn't have been so polite.

And now I'm going through my phone and I just found something I believe has never been posted here. We are all used to Damien 'improving' sometimes during concerts, And he did this in Tokyo as well, where a funny little song originated, I call it "I Guess This Was Tokyo".

Does anybody have this? I'm working on uploading it right now.
Also, does anybody have ANYTHING from that evening?

Meanwhile, I leave you guys with a Reddit post with some songs from that evening:

This is incredible news and I can't wait to hear it! BTW, how many other songs besides the ones listed in that thread (plus the improv) were there? It sounds like 12 would be a pretty normal amount for an evening's set list so I'm guessing there are only like 2 or 3 at most which weren't documented in some way from that show.


A simple google search of the date and Damien Rice Tokyo just now reveals 6 videos and 1 audio of songs (3 of which appear to have been put up by you judging by your screen name). Two of the remaining three vids are of "Amie" in the after show thing so I'm afraid you're right about not a lot of other people besides you recording stuff.

Hi!

Took me long enough, but I finally did it. Here's a link to a song I called "I Guess This Was Tokyo": https://youtu.be/g8Ock3qxptY

Lovely improv, with the use of pedals towards the end, I think, which made it more punchy than some other improvs I've heard.

The full setlist was this one: https://www.setlist.fm/setlist/damie...-7bfe3e5c.html

And quite honestly, I remember very little after Volcano. The wine kicked in real hard haha.

And you are right - a simple google search reveals some stuff but nothing resembling a video, which is what I would be desperate for. There is one single photo and it's on this review, which is in Japanese: https://ameblo.jp/konabe28nur/entry-12168127604.html

Ah, this has been a crazy trip down nostalgia train...
