With a friend here being turned onto ARASHI recently I thought it a perfect time to reminisce with a few older postings from over the past few years here @ WP ^^.
205 of the best minutes of your life!!! ARASHI~♥ in concert. The stage itself is a defined work~of~art….the positioning of the live band~..yes live band!…string section complete~. The open arena itself provides the perfect ambiance as show~time begins @ dusk then swallowed into the thick of the darkness of night, the lighting ever more exhilarating. And through ingenuity of stage planning and designs and through the far reaching catwalks, the raised and moving platforms and ever evolving arena floor not a bad seat is to be had on this night and for ARASHI~♥ it’s surely the norm but never to be taken to granted~. Tonight our favorite boys will part the opening escalading waterfalls in a grand entrance like no other and while the morph of~settings and breathtaking pyrotechnics go off near and far this is surely not just a concert….it’s an experience. The ARASHI♥ experience. Like no other and uncompromised in ever aspect. ARASHI♥. I can only imagine the production work and rehearsals put forth must be endless and while past concert productions have shared this aspect in depth from sketch~board to stage to curtain call ARASHI’s♥ “10-11 Tour SCENE…” two disc set is firmly focused on the concert itself…so, more music and the presence of our beloved sweaty~boys to embrace on stage ………(゜∀゜)………。っ！！！I didn’t want to spoil too much so I refrained from member solos which can sometimes highlight shows and as the climax builds~and~builds the performance clips below will culminate in the always genki~energy of “Sakura sake” and as I’m sure your copy has already arrived or is in transit be sure to check~* the MCs, watch for even the string section getting into the fan choreography of songs and leave it to Matsujun♥ to get the awesome~cool wire work center choreography which this time around even involves a bit of retro video~gaming. And you just knew there would be a bit a “petting” and the inevitable kiss~♥ on stage but it’s perhaps not the “expected” one maybe??….and can be seen in ARASHI’s awesome performance of “a Day in Our Life”……enjoy~♥~!!
Awesome set~list too so I had a bit of difficulty in choosing which performances to include here but I eventually narrowed them down to 14 and along with the featured songs from the tour’s featured album there’s also lots and lots of favorites~♥ both old and new…is it hot in here???
Before getting to performances here’s the gem of the first press edition which is the 44 page photo booklet which is also housed in premium packaging for this edition….
~So much energy っo(*´∀｀)o！！！
~a Day in Our Life~
~Love so sweet~
