I thought about going to Cologne but the train is too expensive with all the other travels I have planed right now...

I have no luck with seeing rain.. at last years expo I saw 5 minutes before I had to leave and catch my plane... I will be in berlin 4 days before pata ... ( I didn't know that he would be there... ) and I go to japan expo (again without knowing that he would be there) but I arrive at friday evening...  and for the guitarbattle thing... I leave on sunday ...  :-\ :-\ :-\ :-\ :-\

Ouch :( If you can, try to find a way to go to Köln ! I know there are some cheap train tickets in germany, not sure how it works though (and if some are still available).

A lot of X Freaks are going there !!!

its cheap when you book 3 months in advance and are lucky enough to get the special offers.. right now it would cost me around 170 euros to get to cologne and back... Its also a time problem, because the weekend before I'm in Berlin, the week after I go to paris and from paris to spain... (where pata also plays but in another town and the day before)... 

now I hope that pata plays friday later in the evening because we arraive at 17:30 and the expo is near the airport so if he plays late I might be able to see him playing...

You really ARE unlucky !!!

Can't you take a flight sooner on friday 3rd ? But I guess they'll play at around 5-6pm :(

Check www.japan-expo.com , they should soon release the program !

no, I can't change that flight, its already booked and also I'm with friends who have to work on that day...

well, I guess its not meant to be...  maybe I'm crazy enough to make a spontanous trip to cologne... I could go by car, it would be cheaper, but its around 400km...  :-\

Konbanwa Minasan! (Good evening everybody!)

Greetings from Japan.

I got a great present today from my Japanese friend.
He went to the Ra:IN concert in Tokyo on June 6th, which I couldn't attend because of miscalculation in date of arrival to Japan.

So I gave him my concert ticket and today he gave me something he got from the concert.
A Ra:IN tank top with all members' autographs (dedicated to me: "to Joonas")

I've also been buying a lot of X Japan stuff here: Yoshiki's book, some X singles and the "X Singles"

Week End, Week End, Week End, I'm at My Wit's End"

Lucky you Orbis and really, unlucky you Katrin. Where in Germany do you live? And X fans ARE crazy, so a spontaneous trip to Köln would be just the thing you should do! The gig will be a blast!

They added a date in St. Petersburg on 30th June 2009.

I live near Stuttgart... and I was crazy enough to fly to Tokyo for a x japan concert, and ended up in paris and the us, but I just can't find the money to go to cologne... I already had other travel expenses and also have to prepare for my paris and spain 'expedition' on that weekend... so, no ra:in for me this year..

it was AWESOME in Köln :D.
so great to see them performing right in front of you in their best shape. :)
furthermore they did a signing session outdoors (seemed like it wasn't planned but they did) so I could let sign my Ra:IN poster which I bought right after the concert and shook hands with all of them except DIE (he forgot it or something like that I think...he signed my poster and I was talking with him a little while the next signing piece came LOL.. well I nevermind).

the second highlight on this evening was to meet Sander, Asuka and Mav :3. Thank you that I could met you guys, you rock!! And I'm totally sorry that I left without saying a word. my friend told me right after the signing session that we have to hurry and shall do this immediatly otherwise we wouldn't catch the train. I said that I wanted to say some people goodbye but he said again if we would stay a few seconds more we won't be home tonight..... -_-
... I'm so sorry guys... hope next time I can invite you for this matter on a drink? I'd be pleased.

I absolutely enjoyed the show in Köln, as did my friends, who were very sceptical at the beginning. It was simply great. I got the chance to shake hands with all of them, with DIE mentioning I had a very strong handshake, hehe.

I havent been on the concert in france since I'm not such a biiig fan of rain but I went to the "signing session", not realy knowing what is gonna happen there. Anyway, I wanted to talk to a friend there and then suddenly Pata came out of the shop where the venue was, standing direct next to me, without any bodyguards or anything. I was a bit like "Oh!"
But he seems to be a realy nice guy and he has such cute warm eyes :D
