Hi guys! 

I'm going to the Dallas concert, what is the best time to get to the venue? Has a M&G been confirmed for Dallas?

Even though the Venue doesn't list it my understanding is there is M&G for all U.S. shows, and being the most expensive of the VIP packages this tour, it better include the M&G.

The line-up for this show will be interesting- the weather forecast for Sunday keeps alternating with Rain/Thunderstorms through the day,to just a cloudy day. Either way it seems like it will be humid.

I'm flying out from Los Angeles for the show.

In south Texas we are currently getting slammed with rain. Hopefully none of it makes its way up to Dallas. If it does rain for those waiting (I know some will getting there hours before), there’s two restaurants behind the venue, one has a big bar.

I’m sure it’ll be a humid day in Dallas for those waiting.  In fact, the weather will more than likely remind them about the weather back home in Japan.

It’s a bummer that the gift bags ended up being vapor.  I’d attribute that to management or logistics.  For all I know, the VIP gift bags washed out to sea at Kansai airport when the hurricane hit.  A good consolation would have been a free piece of merch!

Anyway, I’m glad they made it here.  For anyone that knows the business, it’s a hassle to tour here even when the label foots all the bills which may or not be the case here.  

Maybe, I’ll be able to catch them again when I’m back in Japan around the New Year.

I'd be extremely surprised if the label footed bill here. That would be non-standard for a Japanese act in the US.

So yeah, I think it really is the band doing us a favor. Add everything up and I'd be surprised if they're not making some money, but probably less than they could make doing something else with this time in Japan.

I hope they think it was worth it. I did my best to make them feel that way at the NY show!

It would be most worth it if there was music for people to buy and stream afterwards on the online sites (iTunes, Amazon, YouTube, Spotify, etc.), but the lack of content is not their fault.  Too bad this stuff is not accessible at the moment because it was a great opportunity to grow the fan base.

After three years of waving the Scandal flag in my office I managed to convince a friend (from Osaka no less) to attend a show.  She had a blast at Anaheim and is planning to go see them again in Tokyo in November.  That's one new fan, and I bet many more came out of this tour.  In this sense, the cost for Scandal to travel here and perform has a big benefit.

I'm worried as they seemed to replace one of the t-shirts for a logo shirt for the Mexico shows.

If it does rain, maybe they play RAINY?  They seem to do this whenever it does rain.  This would be a treat.

Monterrey show done. Same exact set list as the past 3 shows. Didn't rain until during/after the show, so no "Rainy." Super hot and humid in the venue. Crowd sang a lot lol. This was my third favorite show of the tour so far.

Also, the M&G was after the show, for some reason. The band changed into their regular clothes, so that was kind of a nice change of pace.

Okay guys , this is my experience during Monterrey show.

So, this was my first time ever attending a show, so I was really excited.

These girls have been a very important part of my life. I’ve been following them since October 2010 very closely. So their music and lyrics have been with me during many stages of my life. I would not be the same if SCANDAL would not have been present in my day to day these 8 wonderful years 


So when the show started I was really emotional. SCANDAL really rocks on live, it was very shocking seeing them live, quite different from watching the live shows on youtube.

It should have been very bothering for people around me because almost all
Of them were recording and I was singing every single song (I know all SCANDAL lyrics, not at 100% very closely to that).

Electric girl was my second least favorite song from honey but live version is way too awesome. I recorded Tomomi’s solo. That’s the only thing that I recorded since I tried to focus on enjoying the show and not looking at my phone screen.

Also , one very funny thing is that Haruna made us sing “recuérdame” from Pixar movie “Coco” (I’m not sure if it has the same title on english) and I was really ashamed because I knew all the songs except this one haha, also all the Mexican crowd started singing “cielito lindo” and “las mañanitas” (Mexican song that is sang during birthdays), the girls didn’t seem to know what we were singing while “cielito lindo”.

Overall, I’m really happy and thankful for this night. I brought 2 friends who really weren’t SCANDAL fans and they left the show in love with the band.

The girls seemed to like performing in Monterrey after reading their tweets. And yeah, as TGE says, Escena was really hot, really really hot. I didn’t want to have the meet and greet after the show because I didn’t want to look as a mess but fortunately I bought the special thanks shirt so I had 2 shirts  with me and I was able to change them so I made my best to look well on the photo.

When It was my turn for the photography I said “Hola” and all them replied the same, I was so exited that I said loudly , “oh my god, I’m really nervous “ and I put my hand on my chest “ and all girls laughed at me haha, so embarrassing, And finally I said “thank you so much”

 One thing that didn’t like at all was that we haven’t received the photo, I think that love japan entertainment will upload it these days. 

Question : in USA shows , did you receive the photo immediately? 

And finally , as promised by LJE on the VIP ticket , we received a bag with an autographed poster and a little towel (I don’t know the English word for that kind of towel)

lol I didn't realize it was a song from Coco until my friends mentioned it afterward. The English title is "Remember Me"

Question : in USA shows , did you receive the photo immediately? 

Yes, because they used your own camera/phone to take your picture.

And finally , as promised by LJE on the VIP ticket , we received a bag with an autographed poster and a little towel (I don’t know the English word for that kind of towel)

I think you mean backpack, not towel lol

The management at the LA show said there was no gift, so we got no poster. While I loved the show tremendously, and my photos with them are a treasure, we didn't get the gift for the meet and greet in L.A.

Might be best for those who paid for vip email complaints for not recieving quality service consistently through the tour

Taking a pic with them was great. But false advertising of a free gift and providing poor direction really helped ruin the experience for how much we paid. 

Not even snacks or drinks were provided or discounted

Metallica and some other bands will now sell you the audio of any show. I think that's a cool trend and seems an easy money-maker to me. I think eventually we'll see bands doing that with concert video too (especially since people just post concert video anyway; the band may as well do it and make money), but this industry changes slowly. I'm just jonesing for Scandal's next live DVD/BD. I feel like I need a fix after seeing them on this tour.

But who do we email? I *absolutely* would email if I knew who was actually responsible for that.

Possibly a moderator for this site. They could possibly have contacts to SCANDAL'S band management with sony music.

Or the venues themselves. Seeing as how they were coordinated through the same management for the North America region. 

Hob might direct us to the HR of the company used to organize the US events

Re: no special gifts given to VIP ticketholders at the US shows

I mentioned earlier that it's being looked into. We do know the reason as to why no gifts have been given (I can't talk about it now), but we don't know if it'll be resolved. It's terrible, I know, but yeah, I'm honestly not sure if anything will be actually be done about it. :/ All relevant people know about this mess too, just FYI. Will try to keep everyone updated if/when possible.
