You guys in Seattle & NY are in for a real treat. DCT is having a lot of fun playing these "small" shows, and they're experimenting with the arrangments and style so much, that there will be moments when you think this is Dreams Come True "the hard rock" band from Japan! The Anaheim show at House of...

While I was in line for the L.A. show, there was a Japanese couple and their young child walking around with a sign (in Japanese): Dreams Come True - 2 tickets - Anaheim. I talked them and it turns out the woman was 9 months pregnant and couldn't stand for the whole show, but House of Blues is stand...

I attended the 9/17 & 9/18 shows at Ajinomoto Stadium. Nogizaka's set-list summary above is pretty thorough. The set list was identical for both shows in Tokyo. Because I joined the fan club, I got a Power Plant cool ticket holder to wear around my neck (glad I had it, because it got windy) and a vo...

http://farm7.static.flickr.com/6024/6206819689_4ab3a6c0dd.jpg The Los Angeles show was fantastic. Of course the spectacle of the large stadium shows I saw in Tokyo was absent, but the "stripped-down" version was still quite energetic. The horn section was there (50-member brass band stayed back in ...

You're right about the perfect timing on the CD boom.

They were also smart to exercise more control over their own label & goods operations in recent years.

I just read the 2 Osaka shows got postponed because of the weather.
I'm glad I'm not in the group of foreign visitors affected by that.

That's a really great review -- I'll be there soon for the 2 Tokyo shows.
I'll be interested to see what changes/stays the same.

That's funny. I love his MC time on the DVDs...

Re: House of Blues http://www.houseofblues.com/tickets/eventdetail.php?eventid=70605 A lot of people don't know this (and the younger fans usually can't afford it), but for most shows at House of Blues, if you buy dinner at the restaurant, you get to enter first before the general line. Check with H...

If you click on 'Older' under 'Browse' on Marcellus' blog, you will eventually get back to the Sapporo concert, where he has posted some good pictures (unfortunately, he doesn't say much about the show). The Sapporo Dome REALLY looks like the mothership when you see a full-length picture of it. Hol...
