* Omoi ga Kasanaru Sono Mae ni
* Heart of Mine (Original song: Bobby Caldwell)
* Love ~Destiny~ (Original song: Ayumi Hamasaki)

I was able to attend the concert in Kawaguchiko!

I was seated to the far right of the stage, but I was reasonably close. Ken was no more than 30 feet away from me, I think. I'd say it was about 75% women, 25% men, as expected.

Ken wore a yukata for the first half of the performance, and then switched to a Fakin' Pop-style outfit. For the encore, he wore a shirt that said "People's Champion" on it or something. When saying his goodbyes, he didn't step onto my side of the stage, so I didn't get a good look.

The evening was nice and warm, though Ken commented that it was too bad we couldn't see the stars that evening, especially since the Tanabata and wish-making festivities was underway (July 7).

The audience became very excited when Ken began singing Black or White. Although to be honest, as probably the only foreigner in the audience and thus understanding English perfectly, Ken's rendition of BoW was too accented to be anything memorable. Sounded weird, but it's the thought that counts and I was impressed anyway. Ken talked about how often he would listen to MJ's cassettes as a kid growing up. "Michael Forever" is what he said in Engrish. Date-wise, it was interesting how this concert fell on the same day as MJ's memorial in the U.S. (July 7), so Ken's tribute will definitely be felt for a long time.

I ended up buying a men's medium size shirt, a pink strap for a friend, and the senbei salty crackers they were selling. They were also selling towel scarves, seat cushions, eco-bags and his CDs, DVDs and Blu-Rays.

His new song called Half Of Me (which was composed in the same vain as even if) was also decent, but I'm not sure it'll be as memorable as his previous work.

It was awesome attending the concert! I went alone, but it was still great. Ken's voice definitely sounds genuine even in person, and he definitely comes off as human, particularly when he speaks in between songs and either fumbles on words or loses his train of thought. One of the more memorable moments of the night was when he missed a note on Pop Star while trying to grab the microphone cable in order to move around the stage.

EDIT: Ken's hair did indeed look pretty bad, and I definitely noticed as soon as he stepped onto the stage.
