ARASHI Anniversary Tour 5x10

Happy Aloha~♥ Friday!~! This past week I’ve been getting back into the work groove after a bit of an illness had hit me and with some fatigue and emergency odd hour work hours I haven’t had time to visit the blog =(….hopefully things will be back to their norm for the upcoming week and with that in both mind and heart…I thought how about a super energized~* concert to help kick-off the weekend!! =) And when it comes to mega concert experiences there’s simply an unparalleled world between artists and fans when it comes to the live experience which is ARASHI♥!~!~!~! From an always elaborate stage set-up, lighting and pyrotechnics, moving stage platforms of mammoth sizes, crane platforms, flying….

ARASHI in Anniversay Tour 5x10 (78)

(YES! flying as the boys even took to the dark evening skies at incredible heights above the arena and audience with the help of some most ingenious wire magic!), electrifying dance choreography, that gigantic cake shaped inspired platform which appeared circa: ONE LOVE! and more water sprouts than you can shake a stick at there’s simply nothing like an all out ARASHI♥ live!~! Add in this concert experience representing their then 10th anniversary which means favorites and singles galore and you do have the makings of a most unforgettable evening of the catchiest of ARASHI hits, humor and YES! one of the sexiest of groups like ever!~! And just to be certain that ARASHI is the ultimate concert experience let’s take pause for a moment to make note of there not being a bad seat in the house as those aforementioned moving platform stages, far reaching run-ways and the like make certain that no fan attending will be disappointed with their viewing perspective =). And with this being a live event you know that means there’s also indeed going to be a real live band in attendance to give newly tapped lives to their chosen discography, in other words….reimagined arrangements and with such a diversified catalog of goodness ARASHI on this night will also be having in special attendance a live orchestra to work and rhythm alongside their rockin’ full piece band!

So on this evening why not sit back and dine on some ARASHI♥? Included but not limited to on tonight’s main course there will be a serving of the always inspiring “We can make it!”, a solo Nino♥x♥x♥ driven “Kotoba yori taisetsu na mono” with him rockin’ the guitar!!! (sexy alert!!), an amazing orchestral version of “Hitomi no naka no galaxy”, drama theme song “Beautiful days” (Ryusei no kizuna…one of the finest dramas imho =) ), a smokin’ jazz inspired solo by Matsujun♥x♥x♥! as WISH is taken to all new heights….and check out that middle break!!! OMG!!! =D, Hero…still my most favorite ARASHI song of all time!, and speaking of legendary theme songs….there’s Love so sweet….ONE LOVE (which features the goose bumps moment of the night as the audience collectively serenades ARASHI♥ following performer & group introductions) & Happiness, all must see performances of this night!!, PIKA☆☆NCHI DOUBLE…only like one of ARASHI’s catchiest of songs which fittingly headlines the 1st encore and to close on the evening for dessert a fine helping of Fight Song and A.RA.SHI will complete your meal as a 2nd encore will be in much demand~ please enjoy! ^^

Tonight’s concert DVD features personally hand heart picked songs~♥ from “ARASHI Anniversary Tour 5 x 10” which took place at Kokuritsu Kasumigaoka Kyogijo on August 29, 2009.

On a somewhat wacky note =P: In case you’re wondering why this post is in italic…?? Well while I was typing this earlier today I somehow hit some key or key-combination and everything instantly turned into italic from top to bottom =O and I’ve no idea how it happened and then on an even wackier note….I couldn’t seem to change it back to ‘normal’ =P.

    What great songs! I love the band in ‘I Wish’. ‘One Love’ is a gorgeous song. ‘Sakura Sake’ reminded me a little of ‘Ue kara Mariko’ and is just as catchy ( I hope they had good insurance cover for being on those towers!). ‘Love so sweet’ is also gorgeous. You know, I don’t have an Arashi album yet. I’ve been meaning to for ages, and your post has now inspired me to fill this gap in my shelf straight away. What’re your favourite albums (if you had to choose no more than 4)? Thank you for posting! すべての瞬間を楽しんだ。ありがとうございました。

    • Hi Philip I am sooooooooo thrilled to know that you’ll be getting yourself some ARASHI!!!!!! The power of live performances is so great albeit they tend to abbreviate the songs when done live at times as is the case for most of this concert but then you get more songs to love so it’s a good compromise I think!

      Okay since ARASHI’s catalog is so massive if one were to get started album wise I’d recommend “Time” firstly as it’s by far my most favorite~♥ album along with “Iza, Now” which has some ARASHI song essential and then there’s “How’s it going?” which has only one of the very best ballads ever in “Blue.” Still songs like “Be with you” is an essential song to have as is “Natsu no namae” and “Fuyu no nioi” which was a b-side track with “Tomadoi nagara” I think.

      First though you’ll need to see these five music videos in my humble biased opinion =P as they are the absolute best!!!!…..

      https://morningberryz48.wordpress.com/2010/03/31/whats-your-arashi%E2%99%A5-top-5-giveaway-%E3%81%A3o%C2%B4%E2%88%80%EF%BD%80o%EF%BD%9E/

      …what’s amazing too is that those music video clips linked above are in my YouTube channel and they’ve not been eaten by YouTube after all this time =).

      A great performance of “Natsu no namae” can be seen in this concert release….plus the whole concert is EXCELLENT!!!….

      https://morningberryz48.wordpress.com/2012/06/12/arashi-live-tour-beautiful-world/

      And here’s the best performance of “Be with you”……

      https://morningberryz48.wordpress.com/2010/04/03/a-most-beloved%E2%99%A5-performance-arashi-be-with-you/

      So, I’m thinking the albums “Time”, “How’s it going?” and for a perfect compilation of their hits go with “All the best! 1999-2009.” And consider these just the tip of the ARASHI iceberg so to speak ^^. Any questions or curiosities please don’t hesitate to ask and if you can find “Aiba’s letter” to fans which he presented shortly after he fell seriously ill years back do watch~♥ =). Limited editions will be pricey no doubt but they’re surely worth it!!

        Hi! Thank you so much for the links (which you must have changed by now). I’ve just listened to ‘Sakura Sake’. Great song and great video. To me the melody is very AKB48. ‘Wish’ is delightful. The puppets are so sweet. Will listen to the other songs later. They are very addictive!
