Just came back home after watching the show in BeiJing. 
I got the normal passing ticket so there was a little distance from the band, but it was still awsome!! Like some others already mentioned, it is very loud. I've never attended any other concerts in my whole life so I can't tell if they are louder than other usual concerts, but still, it was really loud. 
I was kind of disappointed how the audiences kept taking photos and videos when there were anouncements that told the audiences, no photos, videos, or recordings are allowed. But that's not the band's problem. 
Anyways, it was a great show, hope I could see them again in the future.

IMO, how loud it is depends on the venue and country. In my experience, SCANDAL shows in Japan are not nearly as loud as they are in other countries. In Japan, the volume is reasonable enough to the point that you don't need earplugs; in other countries (like the US), you kind of do need earplugs because it's just way too loud.

I was kind of disappointed how the audiences kept taking photos and videos when there were anouncements that told the audiences, no photos, videos, or recordings are allowed. But that's not the band's problem.

Sigh. People in mainland China are notorious for being rude, and unfortunately it seems to have showed at this show as well. :/

It's realy bad for fans that they can't take photos or make videos. But this is the special thing during the honey tour. I heard that at the yellow tour it was allowed to take photos and so on. It is incomprehensible that SCANDAL's official Social Media Account doesn't post the setlists and there are also not pictures from all live performances.

Not being allowed to take photos in Asia is the norm. That's nothing new, nor is it specific to only this tour.

Also, it's actually a good thing, you know. One of the best things about not allowing pictures/videos to be taken is that the audience is actually focused on enjoying the show, and not on getting a picture/video that'll probably look/sound crappy. Also, you don't get any people's phones/cameras stuck in your face for the whole show.

I see you're from Germany, and it seems like you're thinking of SCANDAL's Europe tour for YELLOW where people were in fact allowed to take pictures. Pictures were NOT allowed for the Japan and Asia legs of the YELLOW tour.

Re: setlists, they DO post them, and they post them on Facebook after a tour. They've done that for years now. And they're starting to post pictures from practically every show now.

If you really want to talk more about this subject, another user just created a related thread in the SCANDAL Talk forum:

No one's seemed to have posted it. However, since the HK one was identical to the one they had in Japan, it's probably safe to assume that all stops on their Asia tour will have that same setlist.

SCANDAL in Beijing. I have waited so long to see them and they didn't disappoint. They were so loud, my ears are still ringing. It's just a shame that the audience weren't better behaved, pushing and shoving each other to get the best photograph. But I'll ignore them because SCANDAL were epic. Thank you girls.

The setlist in BeiJing, or how i recall it, was identical to the one in Hong Kong. My memories aren't perfect so don't trust it completely. But even if I'm wrong, the setlist was very similar to the one in Hong Kong.

The set list was almost identical to Hong Kong cause they are subject to the same censorship rules as the mainland. I can't remember them playing Shoujo S, I'm not sure it would be allowed.

PRC government would probably not want politically sensitive lyrics like "Senkaku Islands are beautiful, glad they belong to Japan".. I don't see why ShoujoS would be a problem.. but maybe someone else can say

Not sure where the issue of Shōjo S being a problem comes from in the past few posts here, but it is part of the 24 approved songs by the government as posted earlier on:

Guangzhou live.

Some comments from me, (will update more later, I only got back to Tokyo this morning).

I went along with some of the Hong Kong Sushi fans, a couple of hours before to check the venue and have lunch nearby, they were still in the process of putting up posters etc.

Venue
https://www.instagram.com/p/BkHgA7JlE1s/

Chinese posters at the venue.
https://www.instagram.com/p/BkHecb9Fqgk/
https://www.instagram.com/p/BkHjrXYl3_V/

Staff were walking in and out early in the day, so we managed to see inside the venue through the glass doors. Happy  Capacity I would say would of been about a couple of hundred, we probably had a half crowd of VIPs ticket holders and regular tickets. It was partitioned off during the live. There was a bar along the right hand side. [Rough estimate 600 people?]

We went for lunch came back and found the Chinese fans, who had brought a flower stand, banner for everyone to sign (the same one from Beijing airport) and a large stand up display. 
https://www.instagram.com/p/BkHypovl0Ld

Scandal were already rehearsing, we could hear as there was not much sound proofing heh. 

Lines for goods
https://www.instagram.com/p/BkHyjk-F4I9/

So before the sale of goods and pickup of tickets started I managed to have a chat with one of the Japanese staff (I didn't get her name, try next time), I ended up asking her if she was Rooftop staff and she said yes. I was helping people ask where to pickup tickets/buy tickets/lineup and when goods sales were starting.

It seems they only have one interpreter.

Since I heard from other fans that the lining up situation was messed up in Beijing, (once people pass security they just ran up not caring about the numbering of the tickets), I managed to get the Japanese staff to talk to the interpreter/venue staff to express my concern.

Since the staff was rather friendly I managed to ask her some other questions, she started in Kitty from around 2012.

She starts asking me first where I was from, then she recognised a fan at the Hong Kong airport, I point to a group and told her, I came along with the Hong Kong fans. I mentioned I went to Hawaii (she didn't go, she said only a selected staff went, she wished she was went), recently prefecture tour (she asked me where) and I went Japan Jam etc.

So back at her I asked her about the Mexico dates and she said no idea as yet but she will be going the the rest of the Asia tour and US. (I asked if she was there for Good Time Music/Rina's Line line and she said she watched them)

So I thought I'll ask about Arisa and Motchy as I haven't seen them in a while, so the reason was they have left Kitty/Rooftop.

The staff asked which song I like on Honey and I said... well I'm a Rina fan and of course she said Midnight city   

I also mentioned there were issues with watching the MV on YouTube, she pulls out her iPhone and shows me some videos, I politely say that's because she is roaming with a Japanese SIM card Happy so I asked maybe something to do with Sony Music and she said probably. She mentions about starting Scandal Weibo for China, they were slow to do it.

Anyway, when it came to picking up the tickets, there was a line with tickets all prepared in batches, we heard from some fans, there were electronic VIP tickets too, but they had forgotten to print numbers on them, so they had to pick up a paper ticket as well, which they felt they might have gotten a late number. FYI I know people who brought tickets before and after me, they tickets I have to say sold very slowly.

Goods line started to flow and there was a barrier that had a sign saying for lining up for entry, some of us lined up around it "just in case". But later on they official brought out another stand up display banner with all the rules etc. Which I thought good, they are doing their job properly.

It did mention lining up in ticket sequence number, no food/drink, no video/recording etc.

So eventually when the time came, we were told to line up in ticket number sequence, tickets were checked 3 times, twice as we were going in and one more time for the VIP section, (for reference Hong Kong was once at entrance and one inside the VIP section).

Any how in the VIP section, everyone was squeezing to find a spot, no pushing or anything so it was all good, except we had some blaring spotlights facing the crowd. Actually later on during the live, people actually spread out and was comfortable for everyone where I was standing.

So with regards to MC-ing it was similar to Hong Kong very short and in Japanese and some Chinese this time for China. Mainly Haruna doing the speaking.

You might have seen the official photos of everyone making a pyramid gesture, it was because during the MC, Haruna asked about the 粽 "chimaki" which was a little hard to pronounce. Haruna was asking us about it, Rina was asking if we understood, so we all started making the gesture Happy they asked if we had eaten any. 粽 "chimaki" was asked because on Monday it was 端午節 "Dragon Boat Festival" and we traditionally eat it. Haruna say they haven't had any yet, I shouted to them to go eat some, someone else said take some home.

So midway through the songs, water started running down right between Haruna and the audience from the ceiling, Eisuke (doing all the photography) pulls out his camera and takes a photo of the running haha, probably cooling pipe or something, when there is a break of playing Haruna asks if the audience near the front was ok with the water, Tomomi was concerned too.

Photos of buckets that were in front of Haruna Happy from tweeter user @yki96

So for the Encore, the crowd claps and shouts "an-ko-ru".

Before they start we can heard music from the adjacent venue, the girls look at each other and smile about it.

So halfway through the encore... guess what I point at Mami to look at the water running in front of her haha Happy 

As usual Tomo throw 2 picks into the crowd and its the end of the live.

For the "Hi touch", we wait the girls stand in the same order as in Hong Kong but we walk from the right to left.

Rina - Tomo  - Haruna - Mami

This time in there was no tap on shoulder to move a long, but we get to told to move along if we were stalling.

For Beijing/Guangzhou we get thick paper poster with "printed autographs"

After everything ended, about 40 fans were waiting for the girls to leave, they put some barriers up and open a path for the girls to leave.

I thanked the staff I was talking to for making sure we entered using our ticket numbers sequence. Job done! I will be at Taipei next.


Yes in Guangzhou there were fans trying to taking photos, I was near the front so did not see this but I heard from other fans they were shooting photos.


During the VIP they were trying to take photos again so one of the staff got a torch and started shining it on them.

What do you mean with censorship rules?

There's heavy censorship here in China. Everything that is foreign is usually scrutanised before being allowed to be aired or shown in the country. The girls would have to get approval for the set list they want to play in China before they could finalise it. Anything that is deemed suggestive or assertive to the government is censored here.

It was a mix of old and new from what I can remember. The newer songs were most popular as a lot of the crowd had heard Honey and Hello World songs before, there were some of the classics like Shunakan Sentimental but mostly newer songs.



SCANDAL:

Sexy
Cute
Adorable
Noble
Dynamic
Amazing
Lovely.

Praise Haruna, Tomomi, Mami and Rina. Everyday is bright because of you ladies. Thank you.  Praise
