Vegas live
Vegas was absolutely amazing.....just amazing. To me, it was the best one yet of the west coast shows.

The venue was incredibly SMALL and I mean SMALL. The sad part was there was perhaps 150 people in line. Icon_cry I heard that staff members were giving away tickets just to try and get people into the place.

It was so totally different than last year and I didn't get abused by the crowd and I don't think anyone else did either. There was just so much room to move around and so few people.

They played Countdown!!!

The guys were wired for sound. They were really into the crowd and kept interacting with them on a regular basis. While I thought the sound was bad a few times, the guys energy made up for any issues.

Someone help me here as I didn't have the best view, but I think Hyde sat on the fans in the front row somehow and was facing the stage while he played for a while????

K.A.Z mentioned that he lost all of his money while gambling. He also knocked over Ju-ken's mike stand during a guitar toss on that side.

Ju-ken was pumped, as usual, and did his best to get the crowd engaged although we didn't need any urging. Everyone was jumping and screaming. He also held out his mike stand towards the end and let fans take his guitar picks. He pretended to fall on the stage during Trouble.

The show went by way too fast.......I'm so sad that my VAMPS adventure is over for this year. As much as I am waiting for L'arc to come back, I will miss VAMPS terribly.

Still plenty of merchandise left. Spend your pennies!!!!

i was afraid that was gonna happen adding the show so last minute. it's not like adding shows in Japan here and there, and at this time of year, too many of their target audience are in class during the week and can't just drop everything to fly out to Vegas. Icon_stressed

BUT, i'm glad it was a great show and they did not let the lower numbers affect their performances, not that i would anticipate that happening. these guys are too professional for that. Icon_up

i thought i saw Jin say on twitter that he had won a jackpot. maybe he can pass a few bucks to KAZ. Icon_blaugh

thanks Cathleen! ^ ^

I actually heard the show turnout wasn't so bad... in the end about 500 was sold I think ^^

It was so amazing!!! I LOVED the venue and how small it was.

In the center up front there were boxes in front of Hyde's area, and he stepped down on them and faced Kaz on stage. That's when it kinda looked like he was sitting on the fans in the front row Icon_xd

I don't really have the words to describe how cool this show was, it was just awesome!! The guys were so great and have so much energy. LIVE WIRE and TROUBLE live are super hot btw XD

RE: Vegas live
It was SO GOOODD!!!!! and the place looked packed to me :) Plus everyone was really really REALLY loud, which I like :)

hyde was wearing a black and white patterned shirt, the fabric was really thin, and it was open the whole time, ripped black jeans and boots.
and K.A.Z had on an oversized white shirt, I'm not sure was it said ^^", plus a scarf and black pants and boots.

at one point the person in front of me shouted "hyde, you look good!" and hyde got embarrassed, it was so cute XD he turned away smiling, all shy like.

hyde kept shouting he wanted to eat crazy americans lol and "let's go to heaven together"
he also said he felt us and moaned a lot at one point #_# he said he felt good~
he did a lot of suggestive dancing XD

hyde stood on the amps, and let people touch him a lot, I was surprised. I don't know how many times I touched his guitar :L

& K.A.Z was pretty quiet, other then when he said he lost a lot of money :*(
he got close to the crowd too~ looked like he enjoyed himself :)

during the beginning of Trouble hyde had us shout back and forth many many times! he kept saying "louder!" I thought I was gonna lose my voice~

during HUNTING Ju-ken held out his mike to the fans, ...and I took a pick. Sorry! I couldn't help myself ^ ^"..and others did too xD

and when VAMPS came back out for an encore, Ju-ken was eating a lollipop, and handed it to a fan XD

The whole concert was just really awesome because everyone was shouting, I loved it

and SAMSARA was BEAUTIFUL. I don't know if it's just my imagination, but it sounded almost like a different song. it was just perfect

I'm super happy VAMPS played MEMORIES, GET UP, and REVOLUTION too, I was looking forward to hearing those most. honestly all the songs were great though! the whole show was just so FUN!
a wonderful concert~ :)

He wanted the fans to take them.....it was towards the end of the show. He had already tossed quite a few into the crowd already. He knew they would go like hotcakes!

RE: Vegas live
I will write up a review eventually, but I am sick right now (thanks a lot you all).

But I must say: It was nice meeting you all! Even though Thalia (I think?) kept elbowing me in the shoulder XD lolol (it's okay, I forgive you)

Sadly, the rose I ripped off from the mic stand fell apart so I threw it away T_T
