// TAIPEI MAYHEM! //

We've been welcomed back with open arms!.....pretty amazing since we haven't been here in 20 years......

It all got a bit out of hand at the second show in Taipei when all of a sudden Joey decided to run out in the crowd. At one stage it looked like he would not make it back to the stage. With the help of Europe's and the promotors security staff the show could continue.....

Hi guys!
You seem to be enjoying the tour also in Taiwan.
I remember your great performance in Japan. I miss you so much.
Please come back to Japan again some time. I'll wait for you.

PS.
Joey,the Nagoya's slang that you spoke was perfect!
It made Nagoya people laugh very much.
Good job!

It seems like the 2nd concert in Taipei was much wilder than the night before... Too bad that I only went to the 1st one....

Tonight, you will be performing the last concert in Kaohsiung before you leave Taiwan. I wish you the best of luck and a successful performance!!!

Love you!!

your most faithful fan in Taiwan,
Lisa

HI Europe,
The last time you came to Taiwan I am not even born! But I love you guys so much after the first time I heard your songs. I went to the second night in Taipei and it's awasome!!! It's so fantastic to have your concert as my first concert in my life! (well it's a bit disappointed that I was so close to hold Joey's hand when he went off the stage)

Taiwan always welcome you guys, hope I can see you again!

Seeing Europe performing live in concert was a dream come true when I was 13 years old back in 1989!Now I am a mom of a 3 yr-old girl and it's even more fantastic having seen you back to Taipei, stronger and better than ever!! Thank you all for bringing the old time back, and, more meaningfully and inspiringly, producing the wonderful songs in the new album! Please remember us the fans in Taipei ~~and KEEP ON WALKING THAT ROAD, AND WE WILL FOLLOW!!

Hi Europe!
I had my first Europe concert at the age of 13, went to the second at 15, and at both I was far away from the stage and pushed around in the crowd.
This time I finally got to see and hear you clearly at the two shows. I was totally overwhelmed and the feeling just don't go away! Thank you for having come back to show us that you didn't forget about us and the good times we all rocked together!
Yes, the beast is still so alive!!

Val said...

Found this report of the first concert in Taipei from a local press. One minute of live performance with subtitle in chinese.
BTW, I saw myself in the photo down below, one in white with both hands in the air which happened to block over my face. Haha!!

Enjoy!

That's a fascinating show!!! It's so great to hear many classical and new songs, and a lovely children song. :) I won't forget the memory.
Btw,there are still so many Europe fans in Taiwan. Pls do come back soon and don't let us wait for another 20 years once again.

Keep on walking that road and I will follow.

What a pleasant and dangerous situation. Joey! In February when you ran out in the crowd at the show in Presov I gave my hand under your left armpit. Very sorry :-D

Kuo said...

Dearest John (Leven),

So sad you didn't play your solo a little bit loger in the concert. I love your performance so much. Remember you promised to come back to Taiwan soon. We'll be waiting (for your solo~~~)!!

BTW it's so cool to finally shake your hand last night in Taichung before you step onto the bus. Love you 4ever!!

ps. Ian, my brother wants me to tell you that he adores your talent for years; you're the best drummer in the world and you're his favorite artist! And It's his honor to have a picture with you after the show!! I love you too! Do come back asap, please!!!!

Giles said...

"Please, do not let him do that again!"

Chang said...

Lucky me! I was there that night and held Joey's hand :)!! We were all stunned when Joey jumped into the crowd. It's totally crazy and wild. I love the way you devoted yourselves throughout the show. It's like time rewind back to my teenage and my dream came true when you appear at the stage. That night, I decided to buy another ticket to Kaohsiung. However, it's not that crazy because some people sit on their chairs at the second floor(which is totally confusing)and I was even asked to sit down(?!)at the first song. Your music is impossible for me to hold myself back at seat. I stood at the aisle and rock all night. I suppose most of the gigs like me. Please don't mind and DO COME BACK to Taiwan SOON.

PS. We will urge to find a proper place for your next return.

Always be there for you!!!
Your faithful fan in Taipei,
Charlotte
