(09-12-2010, 06:17 AM)mamikochan Wrote: [ -> ]was there a big confusion or concern when Hyde talked about no VAMPS lives in Zepp until 2012? i've seen some fans who have gone into L'Arc panic mode at the possibility of "only one year of L'Arc activity", and as i don't see where he made any conclusive statements, i think it's way premature for that. i was just curious. don't want to start any rumors, just wondering about the fan temperament as that is a good gauge sometimes to the importance of some of his mcs. ^ ^

I saw on twitter some fans go into that "L'Arc 1year panic" too.

To me, the tone he mentioned 2012 sounded nothing more than he was just saying. It wasn't conclusive statement.

I haven't heard any other infomation about schedule of L'Arc, OBLI, and VAMPS in future other than we can find on their official website now. So, yeah, I think it's premature too. We don't need to be upset/angry or whatever since no official info is announced.

I don't know how other Japanese fans think about it. It's just my opinion.

And thanks for your explaining details about flowers and piercing! Your reply explained just what I wanted to say. ^_^
thanks Yuiku. that's what i was thinking too and kinda wanted to head off any major freakouts around here by applying to one who was there to hear directly and so we were not just running on rumor and supposition. Icon_smile

ah, no problem about the flowers and nipples. Icon_blaugh sorry if i popped in too quick.

as for what Hyde said, while we know plans are made well in advance, it isn't needful for us to know everything that might be in the works or still just be a consideration. as Laura points out, we're talking about a "business" and people's careers, just like any one else's. it just seems more cool and glamorous on the outside. the nuts and bolts of the music business are no different than any other business with a commodity to sell. we should think about it before panicking. Icon_cool

also, VAMPkito, your point about 2005-2006 is well taken. and Yukihiro as well as HYDE was active solo during that period. even Tetsuya released a single just before settling down to the work of recording KISS after the L'Anniversary shindiggery was done. overlapping of projects is not new and doesn't mean anything is going to be short-changed.

i think i was seeing more panicked reactions from people who aren't VAMPS fans anyway. it seems there has been a not so subtle under-current of fear that Hyde will just say he's rather do his own thing than "come back into the fold" that is L'Arc. i sincerely doubt that any of the L'Arc boys have intentions of stopping that band for a very long time. it is too close to all of their hearts, i think. but it doesn't mean other projects cannot be accomplished and enjoyed to their fullest at the same time.

another thought always comes to me; it isn't uncommon in the wider world of rock n roll for major bands to "take breaks", "work on other projects" or just take 2-3 years between new albums and tours, especially those with a 10-20 years or much longer longevity. you cannot keep cranking out an album a year for 20 years and not feel the work suffers at some point. L'Arc was smart and started putting in those breaks right after a period of intense productivity. brain cells and inspiration sometimes need a recharge or just a change of scenery. and these days, so many bands that seemingly just called it quits 10 or so years back are saying, hey-maybe we have more to say together after all. to my mind, "never" doesn't exist, so there is always an open possibility of anything happening.

my 5 cents, give or take. and maybe this won't be a recurring theme for the NEXT couple of years like it has been for the past two. wishful thinking? Icon_lol
[ SEP 12th Tokyo ]

- OPENING: Another version. Digital numbers on the curtain vanished like a puff of smoke, then silhouette of BEAST (looks like Cerberus) appeared, then silhouette of VAMPS came. The first song was DEVIL SIDE. The curtain fell down when HYDE sang 'Oh-oh' in intro.

- I gave Ju-ken fluffy disney ears during the show! Me "Ju-!" Ju "For me?" Me "For you!!" He put them on and asked me. "Do I look cute?" He was so cute!!

- A bunch of HYDE's hair stood up like an antenna. Icon_xd I thought he had horns on his head.

- K.A.Z: Black and white cardigan (he took it off at PIANO DUET), black pants, black shoes, white NIKE wrist band, black and white border tanktop, and black mesh one piece which has letters "HARDCORE ROBBER".

- JIN's long MC was about "How humanly we are". Icon_biggrin "Arly does stretch exercise so often. Some staffs used to put together 'VAMPS sports club' following Arly, but the club disappeared while I am unaware..."

- "Ju-ken loves sleeping. He can sleep within 30 seconds. I even saw he slept while he was singing. Only one person who can fall asleep faster than Ju-ken is Nobita from Doraemon."

- "K.A.Z really loves sweets. He doesn't mind he is on a diet. His favorite is cream Shiratama Anmitsu and Matcha." K.A.Z nodded and smiled hearing this.

- "HYDE loves sea!! He is a vampire who loves the sun. He always puts some sunscreen, but sometimes he forgets to put it on his belly which gives him a circle sun tan."

- "And me. Some people recently call me a resident of Disney Haunted Mansion. Well, what part of me is human-like is... I can't stop blood donation whenever I go to city government office to renew my licence. Nurses talk to me 'What a beautiful blood vessel you have!' "

- HYDE MC: He was interested in some fans' dance which is kind of circular mosh with moving hands up and down above your head. He asked us about the hands. "What is that? Is it fun?" Fans started dancing. HYDE looked at them and danced in the same way. Icon_biggrin "And when did you begin the call for an encore 'VAMPS! Fu fu-!' ? I don't hate it, but recently overseas fans sometimes call us "BA-M-PU-SU" just like Japanese pronunciation, although we are 'VAMPS'. You aren't a good teacher." Icon_smile

- "Only two more shows!! Enjoy the last two!!" This MC made me cry.

- I GOTTA KICK START NOW: HYDE "Today my bike came back from repair. So we are gonna play a song I wrote for my bike!"

- REVOLUTION: K.A.Z. was so cute!! He moved his eyes left to right as HYDE sang "Left right left right". But it maybe made his eyes tired, he stopped it soon. Icon_blaugh

- GET UP: HYDE, K.A.Z and Ju-ken gathered in front of Arly looking at him at the part of silent "Move on". It was so cool. JIN looked a bit sad. Icon_biggrin

- HUNTING: Ju-ken 2nd floor! K.A.Z looked at him with a smile. There was a girl riding on friends' shoulder. HYDE found her and opened his arms just like "Wow! You are amazing!"

that was JIN's MC about himself. Icon_3nodding

-------

[ SEP 14th Tokyo ]

- HYDE, Arly and Ju-ken came by bike. They enjoyed to come and go 3times in front of fans. K.A.Z was by car. JIN was already in the venue and tweeted "I thought bike gang outside was really noisy. But I noticed they are members." Icon_xd

- K.A.Z was wearing blue gray shirt during the show which he wore on Nicoradi last time.

- Ju-ken had something like a red feather on his hat. It looked like an antler. And black Roen shirt which HYDE gave him at VAMPARK the day before the show.

- HYDE MC: "Do you feel me?!" A man in the audience "I love you HYDE!!" HYDE "Oh, thank you. Don't think about tomorrow! I'm going to..." A man "Marry me!" HYDE "Shut up!! I'm going to forget about tomorrow. Tomorrow is a new day!"

- Arimatsu MC: "Hi, nice weather huh? Today I came here with HYDE and Ju-ken on Harley. We emailed each other about it last night. Zepp tour is coming to an end. We will go to various countries after this tour. I remember a guy in the US.... was that L.A.?... I was in an old clothes shop with Ju-ken. A shopman thought me a Mexican. He kept calling me 'Amigo! Amigo!' Icon_biggrin I also like to visit shrines in Japan. I went to Meiji Jingu the other day and found a Japanese drum there. I was interested in that as a drummer. But again, a guardsman saw me and said to me 'Don't touch!!' in English. He thought I'm a foreign visitor. Icon_blaugh We are going to not only USA but also Asia, Europe and Chile this time. I'm expecting same kind of stories again!"

- Ju-ken's pick!

- HUNTING: K.A.Z on the 2nd floor. I touched his back! He is not too thin. No problem for him eating sweets. Icon_3nodding While he was on the 2nd floor, a silly girl dashed and tried to hold him from his back. K.A.Z didn't realize what happened at first. She was ejected from the venue quickly by security staffs.

- TROUBLE: K.A.Z did monkey dance, but soon after that, he hid his face in his hands. SO CUTE. Icon_redface

- Ju-ken had a Chupa Chups in an encore. He gave it to a girl in front row.

- LIVE WIRE: HYDE said something like "washashhhsshhhshshsh" It was like a dog. Icon_xd

- MIDNIGHT CELEBRATION: K.A.Z's guitar toss 9 times!! He hit his hand on the guitar once. Icon_xp HYDE shouted "See you!" in the end of the song and threw a mic to the stage so the reverb was like "See you---ee--you---ee----u-----e--..." Icon_biggrin
