According to DCTGarden, ticket sales will begin at the end of June/beginning of July depending on the venue, but so far nothing about who is selling the tickets or international sales.

I'm not going to Wonderland but anybody who's going to the Hokkaido\Sapporo show could go to bar reboot for a drink you may even see Takahiro Nishikawa ex. DCT and maybe get a photo lol.

Address: http://translate.google.com.au/translat ... rmd%3Divns

click on the Map link on that page for a map and the address, also a link of some writer who met Takahiro in bar reboot photo near the bottom of the page.

We're back, and the concert was fantastic! More later.

Johnny, I swear you are clairvoyant; we made it to bar-reboot for the pre-concert party, met a lot of DCT fans (the first we've ever met), and met Niehya! More on that later!

Fukuoka, 7th August, 2011

Post by Doitsujin » Sun Aug 07, 2011 9:48 am

I've just returned from the second Dorikamu concert at Fukuoka Yahoo! Japan Dome, my first attendance to their live performance. The roof of this baseball stadium was closed. I was one, maybe the only, gaijin among 35,000 people. The concert was great!

The performance lasted for nearly three hours, including encore. It was a lavish show, involving about 15 (?) musicians, nearly 50 dancers, and a local brass band from Kyushu.

How could the artists get close to their audience? By using all parts of the gigantic main stage and three additional elevating small stages, named "cubes", within the arena, by running, even cycling around the inner circle, and - Miwa did it again and "flew" over the audience.

I can't provide you a setlist. Miwa appeared on stage crying, and started right away performing the no. 1 voted "Nandodemo". After about two hours of old and new pop songs DCT performed two rock songs including "Monsters".

After 2 1/2 hours DCT said good-bye. Rhythmic clapping for encore remained reluctant, but "La Ola" waves went thru the audience and finally got DCT on stage again for three more songs, beginning with Love Love Love. The final song was Matane, it began with hanabi (fireworks) behind the main stage.

Three hours of standing, dancing, and clapping left me completely soaked. But I do not want to have missed any single second of this fantastic show!

Fantastic review! Thanks so much for sharing :)
That inner circle...reminds me of the '99 Wonderland Winter show

Was there anything outside for the concert? (Goods booths)

Of course! There were long lines of buyers patiently waiting at these booths. Without waiting, I got a tiny "DWL 2011" towel for free - I only had to show my Power Plant membership card and turn in a coupon I had received by (snail) mail.
