I'll be posting translations of the interview BARKS recently did with SCANDAL regarding arena performances + their upcoming Yokohama Arena performances.

I'll split it up into 3 sections and post them one at a time, and I'll try to get them all done before the performances this weekend.

Here's the first part.

We feel like we get stronger and that we can do anything:

SCANDAL speaks about live theories just before Yokohama Arena 「We'll also be performing songs limited to just that day...maybe」

SCANDAL will be holding <SCANDAL ARENA LIVE 2014「FESTIVAL」> at Yokohama Arena on June 28th and 29th. At <SCANDAL ARENA LIVE 2014 「360°」>, their second performance at Osaka-Jo Hall on June 22nd, on a literal 360° stage they played to an overcrowded audience of 12,000 enthusiastic people. With that lingering excitement they will have arena performances 2 days in a row a week later.

Furthermore, the Yokohama Arena performance on 6/29 will be broadcast live on WOWOW. In addition there will be a program on 7/21 on WOWOW titled 『SCANDAL Special』 where their first Budokan one-man live (held 3/2012), first Osaka-Jo Hall one-man live (held 3/2013), and the Yokohama arena live will be broadcast.

BARKS has asked the girls who are, right now, representatives of girl bands what it feels like to step on a large stage and absorb everything in, the differences between live houses and the arena-class venues that can be analyzed precisely because what's going on now, and live theories the 4 of them are thinking of. We ask once and for all about live broadcasts: 「Rather than being nervous, we're happy that it's shown as it is.」 The graciousness that's just like the rock band SCANDAL, and the good feeling of a heat that's been bet on a one-shot live, has been directly conveyed.


■Our feelings increase when we stand on the stage of a large venue
■We feel like we get stronger and that we can do anything


──SCANDAL has performed one-man lives at 10,000+ capacity venues such as Nippon Budokan and Osaka-Jo Hall. What did you feel standing on the stage of a large venue?

MAMI: I had planned on running around like crazy on stage and making large movements while performing, but when I watched the videos afterwards it wasn't like the scale I had imagined. By objectively watching the videos, I now have images of what to do for our next stage. Conversely, since the distance [between the performer and the audience] at a live house is closer, you can directly send out emotions and sounds you want to communicate. That's why I now think that at spacious venues you must be sure to look forward and send it out to and look at the eyes of those watching. It doesn't change no matter how big the venue is, so we now think about if we attack it in the same way and if we can communicate.

──What yields from stepping on to a big stage really is huge.

MAMI: That's right. There are many things that you think about afterwards.

RINA: The more spacious the venues get, the more of the band's power is tested. If we didn't have so much experience doing live house tours or playing at halls, we'd probably get a little scared. When we try standing [on large stages], the energy force of people is tremendous because there's something that absolutely differs from live houses. Rather than creating a single atmosphere with everyone bunched up together, we've realized that we place the highest priority in showing and communicating. We're so happy that our potential could be felt together with our songs and we can convey them to a great number of even more people. Because we love live houses, we don't want to stop performing with that sense of distance. But, standing on arena-class stages and challenging ourselves is also important.

──You were confident in not choosing the venues SCANDAL songs are performed at. Is that to say that your confidence has grown?

RINA: That's right. Until now we had only known how to throw fastballs, but our songs have also become three-dimensional. Because we're able to perform and use videos at arena-class venues, I think the image of those watching expands further and is transmitted. That's something wonderful.

HARUNA: Because we played one-off Nippon Budokan and Osaka-Jo Hall performances once per year, we still haven't gotten used to the size of arenas at all. But, when we stand on stage, our feelings increase. Actually, I should say that we feel like we get stronger and that we can do anything. That's why we love to play lives at large venues. I love the feeling of playing a live with body language. It feels like the way we convey them differs when we play the same songs in live houses.

──That difference is related to the amount of space and the distance between the stage and the audience.

RINA: The number of the audience and staff involved, stage set, and outfits really are different. To describe in detail, there's a pathway between the seats of the venue and the seating. I think it's really cool when a band plays a live at an arena.

──You can see the audience faces' well even in large venues. Is that something surprising?

RINA: It is.

HARUNA & MAMI & TOMOMI: Yeah, it is.

MAMI: It especially seemed like that at Budokan. I felt that we were so close that it seemed like you could shake the hands of the people in the front row of the arena.

HARUNA: The seats are separated by uniform spaces at large venues. You can even see facial expressions well.

MAMI: We probably feel multiple times closer than the audience that's watching the stage. That's why, to make it seem more like "We're so close!" to those watching <SCANDAL ARENA LIVE 2014 「FESTIVAL」>, it'll be like you're getting closer to us. We'll run around going "Wahhh" (laughs).

WOWOW is a Japan-only TV channel so you cannot watch it live unless you are actually in Japan and can order the channel. Bottom line is there's nothing you can do but wait until someone records it and uploads the concert online.

MAMI didn't say anything about 360°; she only just mentioned past videos without alluding to any specific performance(s). Plus, since they do not mention 360° at all in this interview, it had to have definitely been conducted before it. You can also tell by the pictures. MAMI still has blonde hair, not the orange bob she has now, so this interview was conducted before at least the end of May.

Edit: According to the EXIF info of this picture, the shoot + interview was on May 22nd.

------------------------------------------

Also, I'm surprised that by "performing songs limited to just that day" most of you guys think that they'll be performing songs they played before but don't usually play. I get more of a feeling that they mean that they will play songs that they have never performed before and possibly never will again. It could be old songs, it could be new songs, it could be covers. I guess we'll see!

Here's the second part.

While you're watching our lives we want you to forget everything that bothers you:
■We want you to think, "I'll do my best tomorrow!"
■While you're watching our lives we want you to forget everything that bothers you


──TOMOMI, what do you feel is the difference between arenas and live houses?

TOMOMI: I'm not very aware of the differences between the scale of arena venues and live houses, but it's that the words and expressions that come naturally vary. When we're at arenas we have a "We're battling against 10,000 people" expression, and HARUNA says those words during the MCs too.

HARUNA: We take up attacking postures.

──Does that happen naturally?

TOMOMI: That's a different subject; the content of arena-scale venues and live houses are fundamentally different. It's not about which is better, but I feel that we become something that suits that size. Like what HARUNA said earlier, it feels like we get stronger.

──I see. A fundamentally different conversation came from that. Are there times when, on the other hand, you think "____ at a live house is the best!"?

RINA: Maybe being in the crowd. Even though you're with like-minded people that you don't know, you all like the same music. You don't mind that you're crammed in a small space. That's the magic of music.

──Certainly. That might be a special space.

RINA: After the live is over and it's time to head home, that "unknown person" feeling fades and a sense of camaraderie is born. I really love the feeling that hundreds of people are bringing the same things back with them. It's kind of linked to what TOMOMI said earlier; because there's such a sense of distance where right away we can answer the voices calling out to us, it feels less like an MC and more like communication. We send out messages from us because it's not something that we can do at large venues. That closeness is one of the appeals of live houses.

HARUNA: Generally it feels uncomfortable when you're sweating while you're walking down the street, but it feels good when you're sweating at a live house. I think it's almost like everything bad that has been storing up in your body is released (laughs).

MAMI: It's sports-like. It's not too normal to be that close to large speakers and listen to such loud music. It's not just limited to live houses; you go to lives and you want to forget about reality. For example, if you have "I'll be depressed again at work from tomorrow" feelings, we want you to think, "I'll do my best tomorrow!" While you're watching our lives we want you to forget everything that bothers you. Live houses are places where you can feel that in person.

RINA: It's good to hear raw sounds and raw voices like that.

MAMI: It is. You can directly feel the sound at live houses. I think that feeling of it reverberating in your heart and your body going numb becomes a habit.

──That's exactly why even if SCANDAL can do big-scale lives, you'll continue to play at live houses.

MAMI: That's right. The appeal definitely is different.

RINA: Also, there aren't large venues nationwide. I'm from Nara Prefecture, and you can get to Osaka by train within an hour. But, it's hard for students to buy tickets that are several thousand yen, and mothers worry when [their children] are late returning home. Because we used to be students we understand that there are many risks. Preferably, we'd really like to play close to everyone's houses. That's why we want to continue playing at live houses.

──Incidentally, do your instruments and/or equipment change for arena-class venues?

TOMOMI: I always have everything together, no matter where or when we play. That doesn't change.

HARUNA: Yes. There are a few things that are added, but basically nothing changes.

RINA: Don't the three of you add on in-ear monitors?

MAMI: That's right. At live houses the sound is picked up by the monitor speakers, and RINA and HARUNA use in-ear monitors. At arenas MAMI and TOMOMI also use them. It really does feel completely different.

TOMOMI: Also, the 3 of us on guitar & bass go wireless at large venues so that we can move around. That's one of the appeals of the staging at arena-class lives. Because we want to move around a lot, we do that to be stress-free.


That part about not always wearing in-ear monitors got me thinking about how dangerous and damaging to their hearing that is, especially if they're not wearing any other kind of hearing protection. HARU and RINA say that they usually always wear them (Edit: And here is a picture from RINA's latest blog of her wearing her IEM), but I'm kind of concerned for MAMI's and TOMO's hearing (you can see here and here that neither of them wear any kind of auditory protection for regular lives). I know firsthand that constantly going to concerts without any hearing protection is definitely damaging, and that would be pretty bad for the band if any of them develop/have hearing loss. (´Д`)

I misread it as "Preferably, we'd like to play to everyone's houses"   TOJ Onion NEVER.GONNA.HAPPEN. lol

I'm totally that kind of person : "I'll be depressed at school again, tomorrow" Lol.
That's why I should definitely watch SCANDAL's live to be motivated haha

So Mami and Tomomi doesn't use ear monitors at live houses?
I've heard of ear monitors but I did not understand a thing why it should be worn lol.

 Oh I see. Now I understand why they wear them.
Maybe they're quite used to loud sounds and doesn't bother wearing one anymore (but in the Arenas)
Maybe Tomomi is having problems with in ear monitors (I heard they can be uncomfortable), like in the OJH- it kept falling and she always had to fix it.
Mami too had a time like that (in the Kagen instructional), she kept touching her iEM even when it's just perfectly staying still.

But I hope they won't develop/have hearing problems/loss.

Yeah, totally. I wore monitors (just not plugged into anything) while at a live house just last night to protect my ears, and I've done the same at some of the Scandal lives when my seats were very close to the PA. There's no way they can tour, playing all those shows, and not damage their ears if they keep going without protection.

You can't ever be "used to" hearing loud sounds, at least not normally. Loud sounds are loud sounds and all are very damaging to your hearing, especially if you're constantly exposed to them. If you get "used to" them, I think that would mean that you have a serious hearing problem!

Yeah, definitely not. I hope those two wise up and start wearing something!

Its not like their manager or their staff are their "parents" its up to the girls to take care of themselves as adults. I thought it was a given, that any artist would do something to protect their hearing if they're performing this regularly.... I've never played on stage or anything but its got to ridiculously loud on stage even if the enormous speakers aren't pointed directly at you... It won't be a laughing matter when the two get tinnitus or hearing loose even if it's happening now.

Yes sadly everyone is right !
I played in many British groups in the 1960's and 1970's ( nobody famous ) and most of them have damaged hearing now.
People did not realise it was dangerous then but Scandal do not have that excuse.

One band called 'Pink Fairies' was so loud that people's ears used to bleed !

Thanks for the translations! This is a great interview, it's always nice to know how they feel about their live concerts :3

Now this thing about Mami and Tomomi not wearing monitors got me really worried D: Not that it justifies that, but they must have a reason to do that, it's not like it makes sense to ~just not wear them~. I hope they realize this is dangerous.
I mean, when I played concerts with my band, small concerts of a garage band, I already had a lot of trouble because we didn't have any protection for our ears. I can't imagine playing in a professional band without ear protection. That's not funny, I hope they start wearing them for every concert.   Onion Tsk

let's just hope the girls know what's bad for them - they are professionals after all. my guess is they're so used to not wearing any ear protection that they simply overlook it and became a habit. there must be some precautions setup for this kind of things. right? right?(I'm looking at you Eisuke)

one can't help but worry. :S
