http://p.twipple.jp/ZRMkr (She also got K.A.Z's guitar pick. cool!)

- HYDE MC "Album will be out tomorrow. Thank you! One more show left in Sapporo. I'm going to miss you... I want to live in Sapporo. I'll get fat. Foods are awesome here. 'Too delicious' right? 'Namara Umai'?" (Namara means super. Hokkaido dialect.)

- JIN had MC. He said they were doing the show underground. He added "If you don't believe it, go out and have a look." or something like that. It reminded me ken said same thing at 15th L'Anniversary Tokyo dome.

- My friend got Ju-ken's towel! Smells very nice. Icon_biggrin

- Ju-ken asked the front row if they wanted HYDE and K.A.Z's pick. Then he took their picks and threw them.

- Ju-ken bit a stuffed frog fans brought, then put it in front of Arly for a while, then brought back to the fan. Icon_biggrin

******

[ JUL 28th Sapporo ]

- Songs: SEX BLOOD ROCK N' ROLL, LIFE ON MARS?, LIVE WIRE, KYUKETSU, REVOLUTION, MEMORIES, TIME GOES BY, SWEET DREAMS

- K.A.Z MC "Do you know what day today?" Audience "Album release date!" K.A.Z "Yes, release date. Have you got yours? ...Thank you." Then he brought out BEAST, took booklet out, showed us. "See? How sexy HYDE is! Eh? No I won't give you this. I thought the first album was super awesome so the second won't be. But now I know VAMPS isn't like that. Amazing band."

- Ju-ken was wearing....a tiger mask...somehow. Icon_domokun

- HYDE MC "Today is the last! Sapporo! We won't be here tomorrow! Let's make an unforgettable night! I love you!"

- "I had a dream last night. Dream of vampires. I told them that I'm just joking pretending to be a vampire, but they got mad and attacked me like crazy. Scary... Am I already a real vampire? What should I do?!"

- "I love Sapporo town. Girls are cute, boys are nice. I had a great time. I won't waste the power you gave us. We will give doubled power back to you! We released BEAST and go to the wolrd tour. When we will be back, we will be bigger so that you are proud of the fact you like VAMPS!!"

How did you get Kazu's orange? Did he eat off it? lol I'd suppose I'd eat it.

Thanks for the updates! Icon_heart
thanks Yuiku for the last of the Sapporo dates. it is especially fun for many of us overseas fans to read the MCs because the content is much cuter and racier than they have done here for example. probably due to language differences and maybe not sure how receptive fans are to the more suggestive comments that seem to always be the norm at home.

we would like them just as much as our Japanese counterparts do....hint .. hint ..in case someone peeks in on us. Icon_lol
I went to AUG 1st Fujikyu. This is what I remember.

----
[ START ]

17:30 HYDE and K.A.Z appeared by a red sports car just like ANGEL TRIP MV. Clothes are also like ANGEL TRIP. HYDE was wearing white fluttery clothes, white bandana, sun glasses. He took sun glasses off at first MC.

The first song was LOVE ADDICT. The rest is, not in order,

< acoustic >
EVANESCENT, MISSION, SAMSARA, MY FIRST LAST
< other >
HELLO, GET UP, HUNTING, ANGEL TRIP, MEMORIES, LIVE WIRE, REVOLUTION, HIDEAWAY, DEVIL SIDE, VAMP ADDICTION, DOLLY, REDRUM, TROUBLE, KYUKETSU, SEX BLOOD ROCK N' ROLL
< last song >
UNEXPECTED

Arly had drums solo before acoustic part.

----
[ BEGINNING - BEFORE ACOUSTIC ]

HYDE first MC was like,

"It's August.....I'm happy to spend August 1st with you. It's summer and I'm thirsty. I wanna drink your crazy blood!"

HYDE poured water on the audience with a silver hose in the beginning of the show. I was soaked. He smiled a lot while watering.

I saw HYDE kicked Ju-ken. Ju-ken laughed and ran away happily. He came down and played the bass in front of audience. I touched his arm when he ran through in front of me. yatta-!

The weather wasn't good. Since 4 or 5th song, it rained heavily. The rain sometimes stopped, but lasted until the very end of the show. I was worried that they would stop their performance. Soaking in the rain? doesn't matter. The time with VAMPS is irreplaceable.

HYDE also worried us.

"Are you all right? I told God to stop this rain a little while ago. So you are gonna be OK. Anyway you will get wet with sweat or whatever. Icon_biggrin Today's show is gonna be a legend. You are still cute even you are soaked!"

----
[ ACOUSTIC PART ]

They changed clothes for acoustic part. They all in Yukata!!! I really love Japanese traditional clothes so it made me crazy. HYDE looked up the sky and talked us.

"....Not good... I want you to relax from now. I know it is not the best weather to feel comfortable though. VAMPS members are supposed to be 'sunshine bringer', but we aren't humble so God doesn't like us."

"See this Yukata? Cute? Designed by Kuniyoshi Kaneko. I'm not very good at handling Yukata, you know, it easily come undone. But he taught me fixing it is what makes you look sexy."


Then fans shouted "Do it!" HYDE smiled and flipped the end of his Yukata a little bit. Deadly cute....Icon_xd

Acoustic part, especially EVANESCENT, was super super amazing. It still rained, but SAMSARA made the rain a mysterious stage set. The sound of rain and HYDE's strong voice reminded me ancient people would pray in the rain like this.

After MY FIRST LAST was interval. Short video of K.A.Z was screened. It was filmed when he went to haunted house in Fujikyu Highland with Ju-ken and staffs. K.A.Z opened the door, a tiny light in his hand, walked in, up stairways, found a ghost in front of him. He was about to walk toward it when another white ghost surprised him from the side. The white ghost was....HYDE. Icon_xd K.A.Z was shocked, then laughed, and said "They told me HYDE won't come!" HYDE wore a mask on which "HYDOKKIRI (= HYDE surprise)" is written. HYDE grinned and whispered to camera "I did it!!"

----
[ AFTER ACOUSTIC - END ]

Changed clothes again. HYDE was shirtless. I say this time, really SHIRTLESS!! Icon_xd K.A.Z was gray FAITH AND TRUTH parka. I wonder how many of them he has. Icon_biggrin

In this part, especially KYUKETSU was awesome. The moment HYDE grabbed mic and jumped on the mounting. That's when I realised again this band is really really cool.

K.A.Z had MC. He mentioned the video of haunted house.

"I'm not scared of ghost. But they are scared and asked me to go with, so I went there for them."

And about rain,

"You don't need to take a shower when you go home. Icon_blaugh Why didn't you bring shampoo & treatment? Next time bring them and wash your hair!!"

K.A.Z was very cool when he plays, but terribly cute when he speaks.

HYDE praised audience again and again, like "I like you enjoying our show in each ways. You are awesome!!" In the beginning of the show when rain began, HYDE was more worrying tone. But by this time he looked impressed by fan's power.

Last MC was HYDE.

"Today is the last in Fujikyu. I wish we had more outside show. How about long-stay outside concerts next time? Camping in venue?"

"I don't believe ghost. But now I feel when we die, we are going to be united as one in the universe. We are still alive and have body, so we can't understand it now, but in future we die and lose body, then we will be one. Then no difference HYDE or K.A.Z. Icon_biggrin ......Last song, let's sing along together."


UNEXPECTED was touching.

After the song, Ju-ken and K.A.Z threw picks, HYDE threw kisses. And ended with beautiful fireworks in the sky.

Thank VAMPS for not cancelling the show due to bad weather. Thank staffs working in the terrible rain. And thank audience for enjoying in the rain and showing the band how we love VAMPS.

And thank you always for reading my long report. Icon_3nodding
Thank you so much for your reports, Yuiku <3 I really enjoy reading them, can't wait 'til I can see VAMPS live >3<!
Kazu made me laugh asking them why they didn't bring shampoo and (conditioner?) treatment to wash their hair with LOL. Maybe he took a shower out in the rain too? :3 Thanks Yuiku for the reports always :3 Kazu reports brighten my day always.Icon_heart I also heard that Kazu drove the red sports car? I don't know if its true or not.
Thanks again for more great reports. Your comments always make it seem like we were actually there and enjoying the band, too.

Thankyou so much Yuiku. Hyde's comments before unexpected in your report were very touching. His philosophy on life is always interesting since the old times, even in L'Arc.
thanks so much Yuiku. this is one thing i look forward to after every live. i know it is a lot of trouble for you to do this for us, but i think i can safely say all of us on this forum love reading these. Icon_biggrin

not everyone will be attending lives this year. Icon_eek and while some of us did get the chance last year, there are others still waiting for an opportunity. Icon_cry your reports, whether from your own experiences or gleaned from fan blogs/friends and so on, those reports give me such a happy feeling i don't even mind as much having to stay home this year, silly as it may sound. Icon_blaugh

thanks again!! Icon_heart Icon_heart Icon_heart Icon_heart Icon_heart Icon_biggrin

i love hyde's philosophy about what we're going to be after we die.. and I LOVE SHIRTLESS HYDE..
i hope they gonna put this show in the DVD cos i wanna see hyde going wild with kyuketsu... not just in the documentary part.
and i hope the report will continue untill the world tour, i think american fans here don't mind to share their memories of watching vamps concert rite? XDDDD

hahaha she explained that K.A.Z threw the orange just after they appeared for encore. I guess he was in hurry, saw the orange in backstage room, thought he could throw it instantly. Funny! Icon_xd

yeah...language differences are always bother... I read some reviews here last year, I love the way he speaks in USA shows simplifying what he wants to say like "I love you". It sounds very strong and sincere. Icon_3nodding Maybe HYDE doesn't know many racy words/slang, then you can teach him for example by giving him some erotic novels? XD

Ah!! Yes "conditioner"! That is what I couldn't remember. Icon_blaugh thanks!

Maybe K.A.Z drove the car...or not...I can't tell exactly. But I saw HYDE was on right-hand seat, K.A.Z was left, and a camera man in front of them. The camera man didn't drive, and the car should be foreign car with left-hand drive, then K.A.Z must have driven.

Thanks! Hearing that really cheers me up. Actually I'm doing this to return a favor this forum gave me last year when I was dying for USA tour reviews. Icon_biggrin I felt terrible I have to sit at home with NO information while my most favorite band is performing overseas. No information sucks... I hope my report will be a little help this time.

World tour report would be most appreciated!! Not only me, for many Japanese fans. This forum has sections for each venue so I'm expecting people will upload impressions there.

I'm going to keep mine as long as I can. Thank you for reply! Icon_heart
