Review by Mitsugu Machida

Tonight, the Rolling Stones played as great as the second show. To me, what made tonight's show impressive was Ronnie. His guitar sounded terrible for the first show, terrific for the second show, and much greater and aggressive tonight. This may be in part because they played a couple of songs that featured his slide guitar: 'Sister Morphine' and 'Let It Bleed.' When they played 'Sister Morphine' in Edmonton last year, the crowd surrounding me chatted noisy and moved around for beer or something, I could not concentrate on listening to the song. So I could not recall how it sounded, but tonight I recognized how great it does.

For this Japan tour, I'm sorry that Keith's voice has been a little bit weak. I hope he will hit us more strongly for the final show in Tokyo tomorrow. As he has already played 'You Don't Have To Mean It,' 'Wanna Hold You,' 'Thief In The Night' and 'All About You,' please give us 'How Can I Stop?' tomorrow, Keith.

The center stage excited us as always. As they play a different song every night between 'Little Queenie' and 'Like A Rolling Stone,' I want them to play 'I Just Want To Make Love To You' or 'Crazy Mama' tomorrow.
