taiko

A friend of mine invited me to a Taiko show... I've tried to express my experience in japanese... I am not sure it is clear... feel free to make comments and/or to correct my mistakes, wich I would geatly appreciate.

日曜日ショーを見ました。友達は私にびっくりするためにきっぷ買いました。
何のショーですか分かりませんでした。Casino de Paris へ行って、ポスターを見て、たいこのショーでした。名前はやもとです。
友達はやっぱり私はたいこが好きことを知っていますからこのショーにさそってくれました。
面白かったですから、日本へ行くとたいこのショーに行きたいです。

It's probably not saved, but there you are.
My feeble attempt:

日曜日ショーを見ました

友達は私にびっくりするために
I wonder if you can use びっくりする in this way? I think 驚かす、おどろかす would be better?

きっぷ買いました。
needs a particle, I think

何のショーですか分かりませんでした
missing a particle again, I think? Something about the ですか is bothering me, but I can't put my finger on it....

Casino de Paris へ行って、ポスターを見て、たいこのショーでした
not sure if たいこのショーでした can follow these て forms, as the topic is a different one. (I should have said 'subject')

名前はやもとです。
友達はやっぱり私はたいこが好きことを知っていますからこのショーにさそってくれました。

I should know this, but my brain is too fuzzy for causatives right now....
:-/
面白かったですから、日本へ行くとたいこのショーに行きたいです。
I don't think と is the right 'and' here. A てform would probably work better.
edit: duuuhh, it's 'when I go to Japan' right....sorry ^_^


I hope my comments are correct....^_^
any comment on the comment is also welcome

と cannot be used in that last sentence because XとY has to express that Y is a definite result of X, so it can't be a -tai form. i.e. 春になると、花が咲く (When it becomes spring, the flowers bloom.) Use either て as katafei suggests, or 行ったら if you want to express the notion of "if".

in other words:
日本に行って、すしを食べたい。 (I want to go to Japan and eat sushi.)
日本に行ったら、すしを食べたい。 (If [or "when"] I go to Japan, I want to eat sushi.)

きっぷ買いました is fine if this is an informal e-mail. Formal written grammar demands an を, but you can leave it off here if you want.

Katafei's intuition about 何のショーですか分かりませんでした is right; you can't use -masu forms in the middle like that; just drop the "desu" there and you're fine.

Casino de Paris へ行って、ポスターを見て、たいこのショーでした is questionable. It might be OK, it might not; I'm not sure myself.

What is "taiko"? Is it 太鼓(Japanese classic drums)?

Yamato is a group of Japanese drummers. They tour Europe on a regular basis.
Tonight I'm going to see tenko and I'm really looking forward to it ^_^
