Tokyo - July 4 - Sunday noon

Posted by Peter

Okay...it's time for our excellent adventure in Japan to end unfortunately. A long airplane ride is what lies ahead of us. Our time here has been unbelievable, and last night's gig was no exception. The Shelter was filled to the absolute maximum - literally wall to wall people. (The photos will prove this!) A great final night here. Firestarter played ferociously, and the opening band, Pay Channel were equally excellent. Crowd was with every band every moment of the night, and after we were done our set, and FOUR encores(!) the after show party continued for hours! We have so many new friends here, and it was hard not to try and thank each one of the individually. Two girls cried at the mention of our leaving today, and I am not making this up! We were blown completely away by the affection and respect that we have been treated with! It is time to leave for the airport, and so this will be our final message from Japan.

The Reducers love Japan, and have great new friends here!

Welcome Home and Happy 4th of July!
So many of us are relieved that you had not been permanently bandnapped by those crafty fans in Japan, even the elusive Mr. Pleasure!

I too would be misty eyed if you guys were going perhaps for good!

Can I say this too, a few years ago, an unreliable source said you guys were headin to quit, but I was so happy that you didn't quit because you got to go to Japan. You are really a family, it would not be right to break apart the family!

Can't wait to talk to you guys! This is so COOL.
