July 2nd NK HAll
Tonight's show I have arena ticket A block around No.800. The number was not so bad, but it took so long to be lined according to number, I realized this was what the audience of 3,000 means. I heard some people in a queue speaking , " \6,300 for the fare and people would buy goods. In average one person will pay \10,000. \30 million one night. After one tour he don't have to work for 5 years, you know?". Hmm everyone has his own opinion. I thought his five years of absence must be very hard days for him, well someone can say I am too sentimental. But he bought most of the recording instruments of TYM, he had paid a lot, I guess
As it was Saturday. I saw many couples, a couple whose man is just a bodyguard , a couple of both TYM fans, Lovin& Emma in boys' version and girls' version. We will soon start a voyage of 1hour and 40 minutes together with such variety of passengers, Captain Lovinson!
Yee helped me in choosing the place to get, for she had an arena ticket last night and she learned a lot from the horrible experience of hot audience. We got the center in the last line of A -block where you can read Yoshii-san 's expression and also you can dance or raise hands. Very nice place, thank you, yee! I think it's difficult for me to remember all the detail of show, but as I was closer to him than last night the whatever memory I had must be vivid, I hope.
The set list was the one starts from Phoenix which we could perceive his entertainer spirit from the very beginning. In TALI we would reach the first summit and the whole program will shape the mountain ranges with several summits. He was in black T-shirts and grey jacket. In THE middle of YOKUBO he took off his jacket, I remember. He already showed" the eyes of insanity". He must have performed with slight feign calm last night, but tonight he seemed to be more energetic and eager to enjoy the temperature of the hall wholly. The audience also seemed getting off a good start. At TALI I saw few people weeping. " ♪what an empty existence a human is ” - no, no ,Lovinson! A singer and listeners can share such an emotion akin to prayer like we do now, a human isn't at all empty, you know? Each time I listen to this ,I find a different charm. A good. song.
After finishing TALI. He showed a restful smile. Oh, I noticed Emma played better than last night. That's why he sang free from care.
At the petitioning part of SIDE BY SIDE he himself seemed very emotional. Relaxed feeling had made him empathy the song smoothly, I guess. Wanted & Sheep was the next song. This order is good enough to compare the difference between two albums. In the second album we can perceive his definite attitude to present his song in front of the listeners. Making the first album must be a necessary passage for him to make sure his self. RAINBOW : Emma's guitar soundedawfully good. This may be because the place we got that night. Last night my seat was on Emma's side , I mean, the right side of the stage and that night was on the center. Perhaps the balance of SE made Emma's play clear. Otherwise we can't enjoy the retrospective charm of this song. But how about fake clumsiness in the play of 20GO? I know Emma wants to copy ham-handed play of Yoshii to depict languid young girl who is still in the day dream after late nap and going to fetch a milk carton to the refrigerator. As Yoshii has come to used to sing this song, I think it's better for Emma to play more professionally. Still good song. The audience was dancing in the shape of 8.
CALL ME that night was the best of all 3 I'd heard. Perhaps because they've achieved the band sound of their own. ♪ How many years have passed though it's all the same for people keep on seeking a higher place above others ♪ Serious entreaty! At the climax the pin point light focused Yoshii. He looked humble and somber. Submissiveness to fate , to name it. I couldn't help wishing Yoshii at this moment could appear when I would take my last breath.
Black Cock's Horse. Again he was showing peaceful smiles. He is such a dexterous fellow that can't keep a poker face. (This is why I love him! ) The twin guitars sound marvelous, far much better than album version. So he can shout&rock " ♪melting still-image/sperm ( homonyms in Japanese) " , "♪I'm alone when I die” Gorgeous ,Lovinson! You are genuine rockstar!
Muddy Water and introduction of members. " I will catch the "BA!" for sure, today!"....., but today's MC was lower-part version of KENUKE /fallen-hair HALL. He demanded ", Everyone call Mr.Misakabe puXXX hair!" Don't, young girl over there! He is just a nut, don't follow him! He will make you a girl addressed "♪a girl who smiles against will ". But there were a lots of " puXXX hair" calls(-_-;) And he introduced Emma , " here is another puXXX hair!" He seemed to blow off the tensed up feeling at last night, and looked a naughty rascal.
Just A Little Day. MC, " I'll spread my wings I've folded for a while. More tours to come. Please listen to a song of getting together". This comment ,I thought , was meant for the supporting members. On this very day this song was for supporting members who helped and encouraged him to be on stage again rather than a past friend who drew a huge picture of white flowers.
His sang in resolved manner to get start on new journey together with new band
Sprit's Coming , Californian Rider でHow fun to move own body to the rock&roll of matured men. For his performance was stable , I could enjoy to my heart's content. GOCHISO-SAMA!
Naturally I've been waiting for a part where I would like to cheer him up with raising both fists. That is " ♪Though someone may say something on your new stile, never mind! For it juts comes from the jealous ” I said in silence, " True words, Lovinson. Come on !, and I raised both hands with fits, then I thought he made a slight bow!!!! I know, I know , that was just an illusion likely to happen at live show but...... Please forgive me,Lovinson, for I would see 5 stages of your first tour in total!
Final Countdown This song may be more spectacular if you have 2nd floor seats rather than on arena. Noup! To agitate 3,000 people from the stage must be far far much better
He changed onto a pink shirts. He really came with pink. Today's smile was exclusively cute and came with that color.
Still Alive We can easily imagine a girl who came prettier because of love with Mr.Yoshii, and days of arguments, exhausted from daily work that wouldn't give him any excitement but sense of duty, and the back of pale middle-aged man who has to go home where his wife and kids are waiting. The original song was just croquis of those
persons, but now is a band music that can deeply entertain the audience. Himself of days when he created this somg and himself now who sang in front of large audience. This song must have been growing in the same pace as himself inside grew. In the interview of Spring Tour DVD he had said," How I wish singing such a song that make both the singer himself and his listeners fascinated and losing themselves." I think he has stepped forward towards his goal.
For ME NOW 、He sang ”♪I 'm still LOVINSON, for I say such a thing"
TOBUYONI MC" I've never imagined I could be blessed with such good memebers at this age of mine"
His song was full of confidence from the sense of fulfillment.
Today I've just witness of the birth of a new band TOBUYONI was very symbolic
Later I knew that Mr.Mitch ( photographer) scribbled the letter ”愛” on LOVINOSON's right forearm. Yoshii-san said in the interview of ZEPP leaflet ;;
" To make the second album many people have cooperated me. When people gather ,there comes "愛” and it grows, no?"
