The doors opened at 4 pm to sell his music CD's and books. Ms. Akiko Agishi, the President and Founder of Aurora Japanese Language Scholarship Foundation talked from 5:18 pm. Dacoda Taylor Starck-Knight, Aurora Japanese Scholarship awardee winner, talked his speech after that.
I will attach photos taken right after the regular concert and during the "Encore" show, because we were disallowed to use cameras and cell phones during the concert.
さだまさしさんは、関白宣言、北の国から、雨やどり、飛梅、極光 オーロラ、秋桜、いのちの理由、精霊流し、風に立つライオンなど、トークを交えて歌ってくださいました。面白かったです。ソロ活動4011回目のコンサートだったそう。次のLAコンサートは5年後とか。日本では頻繁にコンサートされてるので、聴きたい方は、訪日ください。訪日してコンサートに来られるLAファンもいらっしゃるそうです。 Masashi Sada sang "Declaration of Male Chauvinism", "From North Country", "Rain Shelter", "Flying Plum", "Aurora", "Cosmos", "Reason for Life", "Drifting of the Spirits", "Lion Rising in Winds", etc. and talked a lot of funny stories. It was his 4011th concert in his solo singer 36 years duration. Next LA concert will be 5 years later. He often performs concerts in Japan. Please visit Japan to enjoy his concerts. He said some LA fans visit Japan to enjoy his concerts.
It will become 20 years since Hanshin Earthquake Disaster in Japan, but the affected areas are still not went back to the stage before the earthquake, yet. Masashi Sada has been performing concerts to rescue them in Hyogo and Eastern Japan after 3-11-2011 Earthquake and Tsunami Disaster.
He said, for an example, when 70 serving Ramen noodles were gifted for 100 people in the rescue site since 1-17-1994 in Hanshin area, they did not serve any thinking of "Equal" thought, and all got spoiled and disposed. They did that. He wished they divided the available foods and goods by the number of the people there.
