^Were you up front too? I kept getting shoved and pushed around by a reallllly tall sweaty guy. Being 5' tall, it's not so fun. But what can you do, things like that are bound to happen at concerts...Yay for staffffffffff~
I was stuck right behind that guy for most of the concert, and stuck next to his friend who kept pushing people, and his other friend who kept bumping into people, and was hitting people in the face when she started swinging her shirt around on NUTS BANG!!!. And they nearly knocked me over when they put their friend on the second guy's shoulders.
But that was the only bad part, otherwise the concert was amazing (par for FLOW). LOVED that they played Ryusei and Around the World (my sister's favourite song), and was happily surprised they did LUNA (though I had a feeling they were going to) and Sono Saki ni wa... I pretty much expect they won't do my favourite at Fanime (Fuyu no Amaoto) but hope in years to come they will do some of my other favourites (Garden, SOUL RED, Bring it On).
And I was really hoping they would do 1/3. Being a die-hard SIAM SHADE fan I went crazy when the single was first announced (especially after a string of bad covers this winter) and when Takeshi mentioned on the blog that Daita (ex-SIAM SHADE guitarist) was going to help arrange and guest on the single I had double faith it would be amazing. And they didn't disappoint. It is the only good cover of 1/3. (imho) And when it started I went absolutely crazy, screaming my heart out with excitement. And had one of the people near look at me like: 'What is your problem?' I was singing along at the top of my lungs. (Okay, granted, I was doing that with all of the other songs too... XD)
And was so excited to get the sneak preview of their new single HEY! It sounds absolutely amazing. Can't wait for August for it to come out. *heads over to Amazon.jp to see if it's on pre-order yet*
So it was an amzing concert, just like last year, and I certainly hope they come back again next year! Now my next goal is to get back over to Japan to see them live there.
