After the end of the main set and before the encore, the pause was longer than it usually is. The crew were all talking to each other, which isn’t the norm, and then they removed the cage on which Kyo stands. Maybe I’m wrong, as I haven’t read any reviews of other shows from this tour, but I got the impression that they were surprised that he had asked for it to be removed. He then performed the final songs without the barrier of the cage between him and the audience.
He looked very happy (for him while performing) that the whole audience knew and sang the words to the Final and Hageshisa to, and he looked very content as he waved his good-byes to the audience.
