Loved, loved, LOVED it. Great way to cap off a long week -Friends, beers and Scandal.

Oh, and I called out "Heaven na Kibun" just before they started playing it. It was just wishful thinking but it looks like sometimes wishes do come true. Ha ha.


Thanks for those who captured it. I also tried but had problems and decided just to enjoy it.

Gimme more!

Hi, long time lurker and first time poster here. Thoroughly enjoyed the live, it was pretty surreal because I'm in a country that Scandal would likely never tour and this was probably the closest I'd get to a live concert!

I'm glad they included Mabataki in the setlist. Such an awesome song but one thing I can't figure out is, how did Rina change the sound of her drums?! I always thought she used her electronic drum set for this song but I watched the video a few times and can't make it out. It looked like she was still playing on her normal drum kit.

If you see pictures of her drum kit youll see an electronic pad left of her snare. She's hitting that for the 'electronic' sounds.

Just to illustrate what @bleachnlife is describing:

SCANDAL – Fuzzy (Live at Red Bull Music Studios Tokyo) - Page 2 Vlcsnap-2019-08-10-19h09m56s103

RINA's right hand is playing her hi-hat, and her left is playing the pad.

You may see her current drum set-up here:

The left-most (smaller) snare is a Roland V-drum snare with a mesh pad.

Mabataki and Heaven were better than the studio version, it was a very good live overall, made my day ^^

Aha, thanks for clarifying the drum question!  SCANDAL – Fuzzy (Live at Red Bull Music Studios Tokyo) - Page 2 1f600 I didn't think to check out the photos of her kit...

Very interesting set at Red Bull Music Studio. I particularly liked the arrangements of "Morning Sun" & "Heaven na Kibun". I think it was HARUNA who, when writing a commentary on the "YELLOW" album, said that these two songs represented SCANDAL's "dark side". They are both definitely my favourite tracks from that album which I think overall was/is their best album since "BEST * SCANDAL"! To me SCANDAL is all about seeing them playing their instruments - live on stage preferably, but on DVD / Blu-ray or even You-Tube if, like me, you don't live in Japan. Although they did play "Morning Sun" on the "Perfect World" DVD that was pretty much the standard CD version & I had seen a You-Tube clip of them playing "Heaven na Kibun" at a Hallowe'en gig somewhere or other but the sound system & the quality of recording hardly did it justice. But to see this video of the band play these two numbers was a special treat & the drawn-out intros & changes to orchestration & lyrics to both numbers provided extra tension & drama to their "dark side". Perhaps the mixing (if there was any) put RINA's drums a little too foregrounded & MAMI's guitar a little too backgrounded for my liking but you can't have everything. Let's hope the magnificent song-writing duo of RINA & MAMI will pen some more moving numbers like these in the not-too-distant future.

If only the camera crew knew how to hold a camera both steady & in focus for more than a second or two this performance could have made an excellent general release as a DVD / Blu-ray. But now that they have lost the financial & organizational backing of Sony/EMI perhaps this is regrettably a thing of the past & we'll see no more SCANDAL videos hitting the market.

Incidentally my wife & I will be going to Japan in the first two weeks of October to catch some Rugby World Cup matches. Anyone know of any potential SCANDAL gigs we could get into?
