SCANDAL - The best Valentine's Day with "everyone who was chosen"

SCANDAL released their new album 「HONEY」 yesterday, 2/14. In commemoration of this, they held a free live at Zepp DiverCity Tokyo on the same day.

This live was carried out via an invitation system for purchasers of 「HONEY」. The lucky fans who gained entry packed the floor. Hitting the stage in a black-and-white casual style, the SCANDAL members kicked off the live from RINA's count with 「Koisuru Universe」. Neon-colored moving lights colored the stage as HARUNA, TOMOMI, and MAMI's singing voices with a feeling of openness spread throughout the venue. The audience broke out in dance along to the danceable rhythm of 「Take Me Out」 where RINA swung her hair around as she drummed while the three in front took big steps as they performed freely. After this single track that's also on the album, they headed into a performance of the popular song 「Shunkan Sentimental」. From early on the audience sang in a chorus and the enthusiasm of the floor rose.

After completing three songs and switching to an MC, HARUNA praised the fans, saying, 「Are you guys really this happy? You've been super loud since the beginning!」 She also touched on the fact that this was their first live show of the year, and this live was invite-only: 「Let's make this the best night ever for our first live of 2018 with everyone who was chosen!」, she said enthusiastically. From there, the quartet performed and pleased the audience with 「Platform Syndrome」, a new song from the new album; and 「Bitter Chocolate」, which is connected to Valentine's Day (the day of the live). During 「Bitter Chocolate」, the soft ensemble along with TOMOMI's sweet and painful singing voice enveloped the venue.

At the halfway point of the live, HARUNA smiled and explained that they packed their album with songs that they could do precisely because they're SCANDAL, and precisely because they're an all-girl band: 「We're so happy that we were able to make this kind of album on our own! It'd truly make us happy even if just the people who came out today could accept this beloved album of ours. It's enough that we'd want to ask every single person their thoughts on it (laughs).」 For the first time they played the song 「OVER」, which they explained could become a live anthem song, with RINA's dynamic drumming and HARUNA's emotional voice making an impression. 「EVERYBODY SAY YEAH!」 followed, and when TOMOMI and HARUNA's dual vocals raised the excitement of the audience, HARUNA additionally divided up the audience by girls and boys and had the audience jumping. The last song they performed was 「LOVE SURVIVE」. The quartet left the stage after playing a performance full of energy.

For the encore, the members appeared once more on stage all wearing the white t-shirt they made in collaboration with AMIAYA included in the T-Shirt Edition of their new album. HARUNA once more appealed 「HONEY」 to the fans, saying, 「This is an album we made with all of our might, so we hope you listen to it a lot!」 The girls introduced 「SCANDAL BABY」 with, 「If we all dance together, it'll make it the best night ever」, and with RINA's danceable drumming and HARUNA; TOMOMI; and MAMI's lively unison, a scene of the audience waving their hands left and right spread out. At the end, HARUNA called out to the audience: 「Let's continue this on our hall tour! See you again!」

SCANDAL will be holding a hall tour in support of 「HONEY」 that kicks off on 3/3 at Misato City Culture Hall - Large Hall in Saitama. General sales for tickets start 2/17.

Really nice post, and the concert sounded fun. Nice.

I see a Bogner (Ecstasy?) amp behind MAMI, is that new (or am I behind the times)?

Don't know if that is house gear or what? Also Haruna have her 5150III back. Seems like the guitarists are in fond of hi gain tone for the new year.
