Hey all!

Visiting Japan has been a dream of mine for a long time and being able to see Scandal there is just amazing! I am visiting in May and will be at the Hiroshima shows. Is anyone else planning a trip to see Scandal on the tour?

Hey Dav1d! I'm hoping to catch them at their last show on the tour in Tokyo in July when I will be in Japan! Will this be your first SCANDAL concert?  Happy

I was at the show in London earlier in the year. It was awesome. I am really looking forward to experiencing it in Japan. I hope to see as many bands as possible whilst I am over there, but Scandal will be the highlight I am sure! I hope you enjoy the Tokyo gig! The final show will be special!!

On Scandal Live Gigs

This summer, I plan on going to Japan to see the last 3 live gigs (7/27 I think?) for their prefecture tour, and I had some questions regarding the matter.

1) How long (usually) is a live concert?
2) Do you think tickets will be sold out by early July?
3) As far as transportation goes, what method would be most efficient to get back to the hotel I will be staying at? (Shinjuku Gracery)
4) If I do snag a ticket for like the last row, would it still be enjoyable?

Thanks for your time,

I second these questions hahaha!
Its the first time for me travelling alone and my friends recommended me to stay at a hostel so as to meet new (and english speaking) people as well as people who might also be attending their gigs! Are you guys only staying in hotels?

From my experience...

1) Live concerts are about 90-120 minutes, depends on set list and so on
2) Depends on location. In big cities (like Tokyo, Osaka) concerts will be sold out fast (though tickets sale is staggered, but as soon as general sale starts, all remaining tickets will be available). In small cities, there may be a better chance getting a ticket.
3) If you plan to travel around Japan I suggest the Japan Rail Pass (maybe only a regional pass if you stay in a certain area). If you stay only in Tokyo, you better get a Suica and check google which route to use. Suica has the advantage you don't need to buy single tickets (it's a prepaid card and it will be charged the correct price)
4) Depends on the club. I was one time at budokan and I couldn't see that much from the last row (but it was still great to see SCANDAL live!). But at smaller clubs even the last row is good enough (and as non-asian you might have the advantage of being taller than the rest). I'm going to the concert in Takamatsu and the "Festhalle" can host 950 people, so I will have a very good feeling (well, I won't be in the last row as my entrance number is 285).

Did you ticket have a letter, i.e. B285 or something? Mania/Club Scandal tickets are yet to be issued as they have to print the graphical tickets.

I got my ticket via PIA ticket lottery (or, to be more specific, via a ticket agency). The e-voucher itself does not show any number but they send me a screenshot from the pia site and there it says "All standing" and something about entrance number.
There's no additional information like "B" or any kind of that, just 285.

So I am going to japan this july, and since general sale for july lives start june, i am planning to buy tickets from Lawson, online through a credit card. 

But, I was wondering if there is a time limit for picking up the ticket at a convenience store, like 10 days within purchase or something like that?


Thanks for your time,

My tickets from PIA can be picked up with an e-voucher at every SevenEleven store. I can pick them up anytime I want (for the concent on 4/9, the "deadline" ist 7/9, don't ask me why the deadline is up to three months after the concert Wink )

I thought foreign credit cards aren't recognise by the likes of PIA, e+ etc. unless you went through a "middle man" ticket agency that helped you purchase tickets.

I'd be interested to know as this will be news to me (been buying my proper non-resale tickets from deputising services thus far because of the foreign credit card issue).

Unless you live in Japan, that is. Happy

 Well, I did a lot of research on this topic, and apparently credit cards are international, that is, let's say you use a BoA credit card, it's a 3% extra that you have to pay for foreign transactions but still, you can purchase with it. Some cards have no fees, such as Chase. 

Basically, if you can navigate the Lawson website, I am positive you can just purchase online.

I am aware of the usage of credit cards abroad (been there, done that). But ticketing agencies like Pia etc have never recognised non-Japan cards.

If it was easy to buy tickets direct, the SH mods wouldn't have bothered with a how to guide for SCANDAL gig tix in this forum. But hey... if this is a new thing, that's great news for all if us overseas! Grin

Hmm, I mean I don't know about ticket PIA, but in the checkout section of Lawson tickets, there is a VISA, and it recognized the card when I inputted mine...

Maybe I am mistaken, I'm not sure.

Hey, that's great. I'm gonna check it out - never used to work before.

________________

EDIT

There is a stumbling block on buying it at Lawson (their website for gig tix is l-tike.com) - how did you register without a Japanese address?

EDIT#2

I stand corrected (used my TENSO address). There is a snag if you buy it and get it delivered to a deputising service address... tix get delivered two weeks before the date of the show, and one has to act fast to get TENSO to deliver it to one's address.


Too good to be true. Just forget what I typed here. Grin

Also, you have the option of over the counter pick-up, which is from a Lawson convenience store right?


And this is sorta off-topic, but will there be a meet and greet type thing at all during the tour? And if there is, how much would it be? 

What are my chances of "interacting" with SCANDAL?

Apparently there is but it's by lottery.

I'm pretty sure I never said I purchased the tickets myself? Of course I used a "middle man" for the ticket purchase.

On the other hand my wife remembered her password at ticket PIA yesterday. She was in Japan for one year as an exchange student. But when she used PIA there she paid her tickets at the conbini. Not sure if she can use her non-japanese credit card. She will try it but for another concert of MUCC (as I already have tickets for two SCANDAL shows and I cannot attend more during my holiday).

Anyway, one other question. I will attend the show in Tokushima. The club Grindhouse is kinda small (only 250 people fit in). Is this the smallest club SCANDAL will play at or are there even smaller? I mean, 250 people, even in the last row it's like to could jump onto the stage Wink

re: foreign credit cards, for sure eplus/lawson ticket payment will not work. Even though its VISA etc... the Japanese cards and foreign cards use different clearing systems.

Japanese confirmation, card can not be used.

Recently there have been some concerts where they will only ship your tickets to a Japanese address, even though they will take convenient store payment. I'm not sure about this for the 47 Prefecture tour, since I got Mania/Club Scandal tickets which are shipped directly to member's membership address.

hmm, but how come foreign credit cards can be used at actual japanese stores and such, when they aren't online? Also, Amazon JP accepts U.S credit cards right?


So if I try to pay with an american credit card, will an error message pop up?

Also since on the I-tike website it says "foreign issued cards may not be available, maybe they're trying to say that, lets say a credit card company from china, may not be available as a payment method? I thought VISA was internationally accepted...


Anybody have experience with this?
