Appearances in Japan:

Finally, the GIPSY KINGS JAPAN TOUR 2000 has started from Fukuoka on May 11.

I just came back from Tokyo. The GK were soooooo GREAT!!!! Nicolas' voice was really soulful and powerful, and Tonino's guitar playing technic was quite perfect!!! I can say that their lives were both fantastic!!!

The audience was so excited and the GK members were all very cheerful. I was so glad that Tonino played "Inspiration", which I love the most!

Anyway, I had the greatest time of my life!!!

They are playing in Sendai tonight, in Nagoya on 5/16 and the final stage is in Osaka on 5/17. I hope they will play in Japan every year.......

Chieko Utsunomiya

I went to the last concert in Osaka. That was so great !! The playing list was the same as the one in Tokyo as Chie reported..

I put some comments on the songs they did.

8. Todos Ole (by Patchai) was the same as the one contained in Los Reyes-Gipsy Legend.

11. Campana Suena (New song by Andre) was also the same as "Solo Dire" in Ricao's album "Angelitos Negros". I believe this song was composed by Manolo.
