People Queueing from the very morning
Previously it was announced that the queue will start from 2 pm, but on 6 am, Uncle Flare told us there were people queueing already. Thus, I rushed from my bed to queue. When I came I think around 10 people in front of me. During the queueing time, it was quite hot, until it rained so heavily. This reminds me of BB saying SCANDAL being Rainy Band, giving rain during the day of the concert. During the queue also we passed around the SH banner for people to write.
Around 12.30, I was told that SCANDAL was around the Starbucks area. Then I purposely go there to wave at SCANDAL. At first, they don't notice us, but then Mami saw us, I waved at her and she waved back. I wanted to buy Starbucks just to see them but then the cashier got issue. Then after that I stunned, go back Starbucks talk with some other SH members. After that I went out again, TOMOMI and RINA waved to us again. Another 7th heaven again for me.
Around 6 pm, there were people checking for our ticket to give us and orange bands like this for the proof that we queued. At around 7.05 the gate was opened for the queue, and I ran directly through the staircase. I was really lucky to get 1st row, since some people got their bag checked, and I did not bring any bag. The 1st row is like 2-3 metres away from the stage. There are a lot of SH peeps getting first row as well. Strange thing is I brought my CANTA doll with me to concert.
The concert was amazing concert. Feel like it was a dream. Usually I can only see them on my screen but they were just in front of me performing live! I was really lucky to get the first row of the concert. I can see them very clearly from my place. My place was somewhere between TOMOMI and HARU, but closer to TOMOMI.
MC: HARU used more English as compared to the previous concerts, she looks more confident in this language also. But as always, HARU’s English is so cute and I like it :3 Not so many things said in the MC though. In one of the MC she mentioned about Singapore being so hot. Then she also said she want to come back to Singapore again.
During the live, there was one time TOMOMI, HARU, and MAMI were so close with each other, and TOMOMI was really clingy to HARU. For me, three most memorable song was TaiKimi, Ryuuseigun and climaxed in Your Song. TaiKimi is where I started to lose my sanity, my emotion just exploded. Then Ryuuseigun was the song I did not favourite that much before the concert, but my opinion about this song changed after the life. Your Song was the highest tension for me as that the refrain part really brings the crowd to an amazing atmosphere I could not imagine before. In the bridge also HARU plays with the crowd to shout for them, so it was my favourite song of this year setlist.
Before Encore, I shouted almost non-stop until my voice dried now.
In Rainy, HARU said they used this song because there was a heavy rain in the afternoon where they filmed their videos on Instagram.
Before the song starts, she asked us whether it’s common in Singapore to have such a heavy rain. We said, “everyday!”
"EVERYBODY SAY YEAH" was the closing song, and as usual, was great, high-tension ending as we say “YEAH” and jump.
After the concert, because we need to queue for the high five session, we waited in the venue, and they were playing Your Song, and we all sang together. Great atmosphere that reminds me of the YokoAri crowds singing. In the end she brought the official banner from SONY written with our messages. RINA was using the Singapore flag to use as muffler.
The high five session was great, but not really exceptional because it was so fast as the staff pushed me to go faster, though I was kind of stunned again to see them so close. I wanted to say other things to them, but because I was super nervous, I can only say “Arigatou” to all four of them. The most memorable one was TOMOMI, since she noticed my doll, smiled as she saw that doll, before high fiving my hands and saying “Arigatou” :D

After concert there were people asking us for short filming asking about SCANDAL. We said “SCANDAL Saikou!” and when asked what your message to SCANDAL, we answered, “Please come to Singapore again!” I also said, “Thanks for coming!”
Post-concert effects: Now I feel I have no favourite member. I support SCANDAL as whole band, and seems can’t pick any favourite member now.
