DIEさん

One last photo of DIE-さん…
Hope to see you again soon!

As it looks like now, next time I will see DIE-さん Live is at CLub Sensation in June for this event
http://sensation-jp.com/schedule/4821/
I really really wish I could go see Ra:IN too but unfortunately I have a schedule clash…
June 9th is MUCC’s 15th anniversary… which is the same date as Ra:IN performs here in Tokyo.
If anyone feels like funding my travel to Nagoya or so..so I can see Ra:IN anyway…
I wil gladly accept it 😛
Oh and here is a link to nicovideo

Summing it all up….

KISS THE WORLD!!

KISS THE WORLD

KISS THE WORLD  April 21, 2012 at 八王子XYZ→A

In the end a surprise guest vocalist entered the stage. I will return to this blog and edit as soon as I have found out his name. If you know who he is, please let me know so I can rectify my shortcoming here!
The real surprise though for us the audience, was that after the encore NicoNico recorded a PV for a hide event that is coming up now in May
We all joined in singing ROCKET DIVE動画シューティング 
It took some practice which   generated tons of laughs from everyone and it was just an incredibly FUN time to be there… 
Language issues did cause a few problems for me, and even if I do know the song, I was soo lost when it became our turn to sing  LOL 

Me and Phoe-Lo  and quite a long train ride back and it didn’t help that the last train with Chuo Line from Hachioji was delayed (train delays are rare in Japan but with this exception… Saturday night last trains…)!
We made it home alright and could conclude that once again we had been to yet another incredible Live performance… Every time I feel that it cannot get better than the last one I went to and yet everytime I feel this must have been the BEST LIVE ever!
KISS the World and LOVE Life!!
Hope you all can feel the vibes

DIE-さん and MAD-さん Rocking the audience m/
Once again I had the honor to see DIE and MAD on stage. They are natural born entertainers…. and their smiles and LAUGHS and happiness is very contagious.
Nothing is better than LIVE bars such as this one in Hachioji, if you want to experience the very best of what Japan has to offer when it comes to Music.
It is intimate, personal and tons of FUN

Sometimes there are a lot of videos to upload and I feel like I’m not writing
enough about them…
The real reasons though are that the uploading is slow and time consuming,
and also the fact that 3 or 4 concerts in a row each week is taking it’s toll!
There’s a lot of material to go through… and well I have few other things going on…

BUT tonight I will take some time and I give you a little bit more, at least some links
and pointers to where you can read more..
