Arama They Didn't

3:21 am - 07/21/2012

Arashi in Kokuritsu like usual...but THIS TIME?!!

From debut time of 1999, 45 singles, 57 coupling songs, plus 138 album songs come up to a total of 240 songs. The songs with the most requests will make up the main structure (of the concert). Votes will be collected on Johnny’s Official Site “Johnny’s web” (cell phone and smart phone) from today July 21 Noon up to July 31 6 pm.

Since Kokuritsu will start their renovations the year after next year, there won’t be any concerts held. ( on the paper it confirmed that next year there will also be kokuritsu concerts held!! So it’s going to be 6 year consecutive in total!!!!) With this thought in mind, with a feeling of gratitude towards the fans, the members had this idea of having this event consecutively in these two years. This year’s event will be focused on the most requested songs as per fans’ votes.

Apart from this new element of song requests, it has been decided that there will be no back dancers, and there will only be the 5 of them on stage. “To have only 5 ppl on stage is a first. To be honest it’s pretty scary!” they said, “since it is a omatsuri, we want to make it extravagant!” This year the two days will use up to 140 m people.

- 3 Members Aiba, Ohno and Matsumoto went to New York in June, and there they watched numerous Broadway shows. “We want to do something that has not been done up till now. We’ve learned a lot of new things (having watched the Broadway shows)”. The five of them discussed about the plans together.

Best news all day after tragedy in Colorado.
I'm impressed by Arashi's dedication. I'm so excited to (possibly) see this done!! =D

Love Arashi <3.

there's an option for "Others", I think ;)

Still super-stoked about all this! Looking forward to a good set list which hopefully beyond hopefully includes Tokei Jikake no Umbrella. They HAVE TO perform that song live at least once before their career is over (which will be however many forever years down the track) and now seems like as good a time as any, before it's gone and completely forgotten.

We need tokei jikake no umbrella performance so damn bad~! I'm joining your club lol

This is such a given. I really wouldn't understand why anyone WOULDN'T vote for this. It's only been what we've wanted since I can't even remember when.

I am so excited for it~

I have one question~ I thought kokuritsu only allow one artist to perform once a year~ But this year, L'Arc~en~Ciel performed right?

But I am still happy for this~ Hope ppl will not vote love so sweet again and again since they have performed it like million times. ://
all4cyanide 21st-Jul-2012 03:56 am (UTC)
I thought the same thing about the one artist a year thing! Must be making exceptions since it's gonna be under renovation soon and they need revenue!
