Question  impressions
It is over and now back to reality.......sigh.
The show was awesome. The set list was pretty close to the last three shows. My only complaint was that the music tended to drown out Hyde at times.
The roses were back on Hyde's mic stand and he tossed a few to the audience at the end of the show. They only did two songs for the encore instead of three.
There was an opening band, the Exies and Ju-ken was dancing along with the music at the back side of the stage.
The Wiltern had a drop-down screen over the stage and people could text messages up on it so that was entertaining. Lots of Hyde comments to keep people laughing.
The mc was pretty much a standard of they were glad to be in L.A. and America. He also said that they would be back. Yay!!!
Am exhausted and sad that it is over.......off to find something to eat.

RE: impressions
Oh wow, he tossed roses!?!? Jealoussss! In New York the roses were there too, but he didn't toss any. :( (I'm almost going to assume now the roses were just there because this live is going to be on DVD. Makes me hope the NYC live will make some air time on a DVD too, since there were roses there and not in Baltimore/Warpeds... did any other west coast shows have the roses? I haven't been keeping up too much...)

I wasn't even there and I'm sad it's over too. Because that means they'll be leaving America soon. ^^;;; Crossing my fingers they'll be back though! :)

Can't wait to hear more from everyone! :D

He ripped off a few of the petals and tossed them out. Most were left on the mike stand.
He also lobbed one water bottle into the back of the crowd.

Ju-ken gave another great performance. He has become my favorite bass player......sorry Tetsu and Aki. He played with the crowd as usual and pumped everyone up. At one point he was stalking K.A.Z on stage but he got no results. At the end of the show, he emptied two water bottles onto the crowd by holding them at his crotch and pumping them up and down.

He finally got the words right to Love Addict though as he had messed them up the last few shows.
I was also hoping for Hello since it had been performed on the East Coast. I had considered requesting it at the meet and greet but decided against it.

Heart  RE: impressions
THE MOST AMAZING CONCERT I'VE EVER BEEN TO! Those sexy bastards made love on stage to all the fan girls, it was ridiculously SEXY, specially JU-KEN's Ending......haha

Let me break it down from the beginning....

Waiting for the autograph session was insane because I was so anxious to meet them. Luckily enough I was the 4th or 5th person to meet them (Thanks Michael and HP, it was awesome). When waiting in line inside lobby of the Wiltern, Ai, just announced, "here's VAMPS"...or something like that. I remember people were cheering and stuff but then they stopped (I was like c'mon give them more). K.A.Z and Hyde hadn't even sat down when I just like screamed, "Hyde, K.A.Z"....really loud and they totally waved at me! *dies*. They weren't that far, it was funny.

I took out the booklet and got it signed. Here's the thing. I got into VAMPS because of Hyde I had followed his work on/off for about 7 years or something like that...but I have to say I fell in love with K.A.Z. immediately. That hot piece of man looked soooo cool. When they gave him the stuff to sign it for me, he immediately gave it to Hyde and totally extended his hand and smiled "openly" like he was really outgoing, not like the cool, quiet K.A.Z we see in the interviews or videos. Hyde on the other hand seemed kinda reserved, but it was still awesome.

After that, the waiting for the concert was crazy. I met so many great people, I'll never forget that. VAMPS fans are amazing people, and I was glad I was able to exchange info with them, so we'll totally gonna hang out again. Haha, I even practiced my Japanese with some of the girls in front of me, a group of four. They are soo cool. I got their e-mails too. They were really fun. One of them was Mio san, maybe you saw her with U.S.A stickers on her cheeks, she's so cute and fun. Only one of them spoke English so I had to cram my one year of Japanese so they could understand me.

We were lucky enough to get in the lower part, right in front of the stage. I was like in the 4th row, it sucked a little bit cuz I had a tall guy in front of me so Hyde was kinda hard to see sometimes but K.A.Z was right in front of me. I was pretty much on K.A.Z's side. That man KNOWS how to work the stage! I was right in front of him in the 4th row so when he would look up, it felt he was looking right at me....I know he saw me many times....I don't know if you remember I was the crazy person wearing the BIG MOUTH VAMPS and the pins on my hat....C'mon now I had giant mouth on my hat, he had to see that from stage.....lol.....I don't know....K.A.Z was just soooo sexy and his look on stage was so cool. He would come close and put the guitar up to us and we would be like, "gimmmeee"....You could tell he was enjoying it because he would smile now and then. He could tell when we were getting pumped up.....toward the end he gave us all kinds of tricks and threw a few picks and I GOT ONE...that was one of my goals too! lol....he got a bottle of water and showered the crowd....I'm happy to say I got good deal of it.....*drools* Sexy bastard!

Hyde was........*instant death*...in different songs he would make the cutest gestures....I could see everything..his sexy hair....his jacket off shoulders, his muscles, tattoos....his sexy mouth.....incredible. He came up really close to us a few times and people would like crush each other to at least get him a crazy visual of us drooling over him. His voice was amazing....best live voice I've heard so far. He's an amazing singer. I didn't catch anything weird, except one time he had a little trouble with microphone. His MC was cute and at the beginning I didn't understand him well and most people just kinda were like...ehh...haha and he laughed too....it was soooooo CUTE!.....He promised to be back....I hope it's soon! I miss them already!

Ju-ken....Ju-ken....Ju-ken.....haha.....He's PURE FUN! He would change places with K.A.Z a few times and would stick his tongue out and rock that guitar like no tomorrow. He would dance and make us jump. He would pump us up in so many ways....it was CRAAAZY!.....He's the best bassist EVER! haha....he made me laugh so much....I had a lot of fun watching him. At the end, he got a bottle of water put it to his crotch and started stroking it really fast and pouring water on everyone.....haha....all of us girls were taking it gladly......that just how it was....haha.....no more comments.....

Overall, the concert itself was amazing.....K.A.Z, Hyde and Ju-ken made it unforgettable for me. There won't be another concert for me like that in a while....I was lucky enough to have a last look at them when they left. I didn't see K.A.Z but Hyde was like on front and he had the car window lowered.....me and some girls screamed WE LOVE YOU! and he would smile and wave.....he was soo cool and totally gave fan service!

I'm sad it's over. There's nothing else to look forward to......but I hope they had a good time in the tour overall as well as fans in L.A showing some love. I hope they realize how much we love them and do come back. I hope they felt the love and ".....OMG...I wanna do you right now...." hahahaha...that's just how it is...

Haha....sorry for the essay here....it was just amazing...

Thank you all for the great reports and all the impressions. I had a wonderful time reading all the messages and commenting here. Though I could not attend the lives, I felt a bit of your happiness and excitement. Thank you all for generously sharing them here~~Icon_heart

Reading this thread made me a little sad. It's over. But, of course, it was an amazing tour. It was soooo fucXXXXing amazing that it'll turn into a
DVD!!!! That's great. And I do believe VAMPS felt the love from all the people who attended the lives and the autograph sessions and so on. So,
it was a well-done workIcon_3nodding

Hope I can see them live next year. Maybe a Latin America Tour is not a unrealistic dream at all~~~~*
