RE: Concert Preparation
Well I went to a glay concert in the states and at least there fans weren't pushing or anything maybe because mostly there were non japanese fans, I think the most aggressive fans are usually Japanese (god knows why x.x). I've seen and heard horror stories of japanese fans with spiked boots willing to hit the others legs just to get to the front in a really menacing way, and they wear tons of make up ._." is like some kind of middle aged lolitas wannabe gang x_x. but that time we alerted security so they pointed at them in a "I'm watching you" way and they weren't allowed to move forward and just stood there the whole concert. It was a relief.

Wow...that's insane. I don't think we can expect that at the VAMPS concert, at least not if I can help it. I think we should do our part in terms of crowd control by encouraging people to NOT act stupid. How? I suppose just simply by alerting security guards about out-of-control fans & by using our common sense. People can get hurt, if not die, if a crowd is out of control. We can never let that happen. We as fans of VAMPS should have respect for each other and we should know how to behave, especially if we're adults.

RE: Concert Preparation
I've also heard horror stories about some of the Japanese fans who attended the US Faith shows (violently elbowing people in the sides and stomping on feet - not nice at all). I really hope we won't have to deal with that sort of thing, but I'm definitely going to wear boots to help protect my feet and legs.

Really? Oohhh man...God help whoever does that to me. That's so not cool. I'd totally have them thrown out of the concert if I saw people doing that, especially at the Wiltern.

RE: Concert Preparation
This is very informative thanks for posting this! I also had a question to those who have gone to NYC and Baltimore, how long do the concerts usually last? Icon_3nodding

You should call the venue and ask.

The ones here on the east coast were very good (excluding NY). There wasn't much pushing and everyone was very courteous

RE: Concert Preparation
The concerts generally last just under two hours, but expect to be there longer, since many places open the doors an hour early.

I would recommend bringing only an ID and some money (and I guess a car key and cell phone) if necessary-- stuff that you can keep in your pockets and wear pockets where the stuff won't spill out. That way, you can avoid the time it takes to check anything in and get a better spot.

Aim for the front row or the sides. K.A.Z. is on the right (facing the stage), Ju-Ken on the left and Hyde in the middle although they move about a lot. Don't forget to eat a few hours before the concert! Drink plenty of water that day and I saw a lot of people in NYC drinking gatorade or other electrolye waters right before going in. It seems to help. You will probably want water as soon as the concert ends!

Talk to the people around you before the concert starts. I've had a few people tell me that they were scared of not seeing anything or getting crushed because they were short. People are less likely to crush you if you've chatted with them a bit first I think. I've even made long-lasting friendships while waiting for concerts to start! If it gets too wild, head to either the side and then the back or straight to the back, whichever is closer. A lot of people left the pit during VAMPS-NYC, but were able to enjoy the concert from the back of the room. It's better than being crushed or fainting from heat exhaustion!

Hope you have fun!
