ADAMS shows in Finland and Sweden

Nyanko Scandal Factory booked the sexy duo ADAMS to Finland and Sweden and hence I got the opportunity to work with them during 11th and 12th April as staff.

First I headed to Helsinki to pick up the band at the airport and things went quite smoothly to my relief. We headed to the venue where I finally got to meet my Finnish friends Merja and Reina, which were staff as well.

A lot of people showed up at Gloria and it was such a delight to see.

ADAMS spellbound the fans with passionate music and sexy performing. The audience got wild, screaming, sheering and clapping hands. It truly was an amazing show. ADAMS played mostly old songs from NEO SEXUAL but also some new ones from their recently released album SIXNINE.

For those of you who haven’t bought the album yet, I can reveal that it contains some pretty crazy/sexy photos of the guys… totally naked. ^_-

Next day it was time to go to Stockholm, Sweden, where ADAMS performed at the Lakeside venue. The audience was a bit smaller, but ADAMS still gave the most amazing show like if it would have been an arena with thousands of fans. I remember that I was smiling widely all the time at my spot behind the merchandize table. They are truly a delight to watch live. And I actually think that their performance was even more daring and sexy here than in Finland. Fans were blushing and partly covering their faces with their hands, like they were afraid to watch. Very cute.

The next day it was time for the band to continue to another city in Europe, but we got some time for sightseeing here in Stockholm, which I hope they enjoyed.

Meeting ray in Shibuya

This tuesday it was time for me and Jessica to meet Ray (one of our focus artists) and his support guitarist. But first we enjoyed some extremely delicious salmon sashimi in Aoyama. Mmmm, I love it so much!

Then we headed to Shibuya. Lot’s of people as always.

We went by a pet shop with adorable dogs and cats…

In Shibuya we met Ray and together we went to a restaurant at which you could drink as much as you wanted for six hours. Absolutely crazy, that business idea would never work in Sweden. ^^

But we had such a good time and after a while, Yuki, ray’s support guitarist showed up as well. We enjoyed good food, like takoyaki (a favorite of mine, it’s fried octupus with mayonnaise).

We continued to a karaoke bar where we spent the whole night and sang ’til our throats hurt. Awesomely fun!

Finally I’ve ended up at a karaoke bar in Tokyo. ^^ We missed the last subway of course and had to stay there ’til it opened again in the morning. But first, we restored our energies at a noodles restaurant.

We had a blast so I hope I’ll see these two guys again, very good people. ^^

I don’t want to go home to Sweden. I really don’t. This is painful. But soon we must go home…

Harajuku, Ikebukuro and birthday party

This Friday, I took a short trip to Harajuku to buy some presents.

Later, me and Jessica headed to Ikebukuro to celebrate her birthday together with Hiraoki (I -アイ- ) and Rysuke (Doukoku) with friends.

We had a really good time and missed the last subway home. We had to take taxi. ^^

Happy birthday Jessica!

Visual kei event in Ikebukuro Cyber

Today me and Jessica headed to Ikebukuro for another visual kei event. Today we were going to see palholic, Lil.y, Hisatan, Gimmick, Misaruka, The Gallo and Capella.

Very big building that looks like a cell phone in Ikebukuro. ^^

But first we ate some FOOD! I love gyoza!

The venue (“Cyber”) was very very small. Like a garage. I think we were less than 50 people in the audience. So the concert became very intimiate and cozy.

First out was palholic/pastelholic/ (パスホリ). I have never heard about this band before. The singer was dressed in red and was very smiley and energetic. Maybe a little bit TOO smiley. ^^ The music was OK, but a little bit too soft for me.

pastelholic

Next was Lil.y. I liked them, since there was more screaming. I had heard about Lil.y before. They wore blue and white clothes. The singer had very sharp blue lenses. Me and Jessica did a good job to copy the furi. I think I will listen more to Lil.y when I come home.

Lil.y

Next was Hisatan (ひさたん) from FULL EFFECT and he entered the stage with a mask so we couldn’t see his face. Neither me or Jessica had heard about him before so we wanted to know what he looked like. Was he old? Young? He had a lot of fans in the audience that was screaming for him like crazy. His music included a lot of headbanging, so that was nice, but the rest was not that exiting. When he took off his mask we could see that he was a pretty young boy. He wore a simple hoodie and shorts, the less visual kei of tonight.

Next was Gimmick. They had quite funny clothes. The singer did not have that much charisma though. The bass-player was very small, dressed in baggy clothes, big black glasses and had big cute hair. He smiley constantly. Looked a little bit like a cute nerd to me. ^^ One of the guitar-players sang along very passionate to each song. It was fun to see Gimmick, but not that great that I wanted to buy a CD.

Gimmick

Next was Misaruka. When the curtain in front of the stage was removed and we could see their siluettes, they looked like giants compared to the other bands. Big hair and big dresses, like a Versailles replica. The singer was very cute. This was the first time I saw them live, Jessica had seen them three times before. I think their songs had funny furi and this was one of the best bands of tonight. During one song, everybody was supposed to run to the stage and kind of bump into each other, hard to explain. Jessica enjoyed this a lot, and the singer kind of grabbed her head and forced her to his lap. To me, it looked like Jessica tried to get loose, but couldn’t. But she returned smiley widely. Well, yes, he was good looking.

Misaruka

Next up was THE GALLO, my favorite band of this night. I had bever heard them before. They entered the stage with black capes, holding candles. Last entered the singer with a big scary black mask, looked a little bit like a gas-mask. But he threw it off quickly. THE GALLOs music was fast and heavy, a lot of headbanging – I liked it a lot. Definitely the best of tonight. One of the guitarists was pretty crazy. After a while he took off his shirt and ran down to the audiece. The singer told us to split and gather at each wall. Then we were supposed to jump into the middle and moshpit with the guitarist. He seemed to enjoy it a lot. He ran around among the girls and messed up their hair. Then we were split again, and demanded to start circling arount the guitarist.

THE GALLO

In the end the singer smudged his lipstick all over his face and chest. Sexy. I decided to buy one of their CDs, their music was good.

And last out was Capella. Maybe the most popular band of tonight. I had heard about them before. Their music was OK, but not really my taste. A little bit too soft. But they were cute and smiley. The band will dispand this year.

Capella

Overall it was a pretty cool evening. It’s exciting to see bands you haven’t heard of before. :-) And Japanese concerts are so much more fun that European one.

I believe I’ve seen 15 bands during this Japan visit. That’s probably more that I saw during entire last year. ^^

And I bought some chekis of THE GALLO and Misaruka.
