from Josef K.:
I was at this concert with two friends and we met two girls there before the start. When the concert started, we lost sight of each other, because the hustle became too big. The group played great and especially Kyoto Song, Cold, A Forest and Faith stayes in my mind. I remember they used a lot of colored light, especially blue light. After the concert we met again and one of the girls said that was her shoe (Robert Smiths announcement before The Walk). She not have thrown him intentionally onto the stage, someone undressed it and throw it there. She wanted to bring it back, but I don't know if she made it.
