Try to picture an evangelical preacher giving a guest sermon to an Anglican congregation.
No matter how enthusiastic the band wanted to be, the audience had to be restrained, and that was bound to affect the performance. Like TGE says, it probably influenced the setlist too. It makes sense to perform fewer high-energy rockers when you know the fans are not gonna be able to cut loose.
SCANDAL has a wider range than most bands out there today, so naturally we fans have a wide range in musical tastes! For instance I was excited by eternal opening the concert, crazy about the first new song, and never cared much for the melody in Departure, though it's better when they leave out the fiddles...

Yeah but this wasn't that. Go and watch/listen to basically any of their older concerts (I'm sure some are up on YouTube if you don't have the discs) - people go nuts in between songs, and there's a lot of yelling during the songs, organized or not. At this show, it was kind of just polite applause after each song, and no real cheering during songs... just the organized moves everybody knows.

That's gotta be all down to COVID and what the audience was instructed to do or not do, so not the band's fault at all, but it does just make the whole vibe feel a little muted compared to a regular show during normal times. The band themselves have always clearly fed off the energy of the crowd when I've seen them before, so the cheering restrictions probably made the band a little less energetic too. They're not jumping around and really giving it their all like I've seen them do at other shows. It's especially evident in songs like Koe, which was absolutely *nuts* when I saw them do it on the Standard tour, and Take Me Out, which I didn't really like on the album but is normally a reliable way for them to rile up the crowd live. They were moving around a little bit during that song at this show, but not bouncing around during the whole song like I've seen them do before.

So mostly just COVID weirdness with the crowd and the band not quite connecting like normal. I don't know if things are ever really going to get back to normal in terms of concerts in general, but I hope they do because Scandal is really the best live band in the world during normal times. And I feel like we've been deprived of that for a while now.

Like the Glastonbury Festival in the UK, that went ahead but with no audience ( it was filmed ) so there was no energy for the Performers to feed on Sad

But in Japan at the moment you are not even allowed to scream on Roller Coasters Sad

Hasn't "23 August 12AM PST" already passed since over 28 hours already ? It seems LiveFrom just forgot to stop the VOD (not that I'd complain) TOMO welp

It might have to do with how their site died right before the concert + how some people apparently didn't receive their codes in time, and they figured they'd give those people more time to watch it. Or maybe I'm giving them too much credit MAMI haha

Either way, I'm not surprised that they yet again didn't do something they said they would (albeit a positive thing this time lol)

Haha! I think it's mostly the former. I just got a reply on my email to them on Friday about their site being down. They've apologised for the trouble, explained that it was due to a DNS issue, and given me the proper link to watch, along with the code I would need.

Also because of the no cheering rule, some of the classic parts of the song where we usually shot "yeah" or sing along etc, has been subsituted with raising of our arms instead.

Thank you very much for your insights and all details! Now, I understand better.
I didn't know that the situation during concerts looks that bad!
No talking, cheering or shouting during show? Wow, that's really sad :-(
Therefore I'm even more happy that the gig hasn't been postponed!
And thanks to that extra crew, concert was a technical masterpiece (no pun intended!).

Electric Mami wrote:The feeling that it was a shorter gig is due to number of songs played (SE + 19).

...and if they’re happy, I’m happy, it’s as easy as that lol

Wow, that's a commitment to the cause- hats off to you! Are you a scholar or an engineer ;-)?
That's a great breakdown of those concerts! Now, thanks to you I think no one should complain about the duration of Anniversary gig :-)
Agree in 100%! I'm happy as well!

GT wrote:Off Topic, you just reminded me I need to iron a pair of trousers for work tomorrow. LOL! 

Back on Topic, I thoroughly enjoyed it and thought the set-list was solid. The Kagerou, A.M.D.K.J, Take Me Out segment was epic and I loved the new songs, I was maybe expecting 1 but to get 2 was a bonus.

one more time was in my CDJapan basket before the girls got off  the stage 

Not performance related but those two tone 'INVATATION' Tee's that they wore during the encore, were they specifically for the band or will they be available at a later date? They look really nice.

Writing "irony", I was thinking about the expression, not the object, but you're welcome ;-)
That segment was really something special, right? Sorry for the non-English word, but there's only one thing that comes to my mind- CZAD :-)
Wow, you're fast with that single! I'm not used to collect such things, but this song is so catchy (I hum it everyday when I wake up) I had to pre-order it as well.
Have you purchased only the livestream, or the whole bundle? Because I wonder what will be the colour of the T-shirt they will send. If the picture of Haruna on their site is any suggestion... HARU think

HajimemashiteBINOdesu wrote:did you see that neck shape? baseball bat! hahaha

when i was gigging, we purposefully made the first hour setlist consist of songs that didnt require too much lead guitar (me), if any, because i was usually shaking for that first hour. MAMI is a beast doing what she does.

after 6 grueling hours of buffering and rewatching and screaming at my screen out of frustration i finally watched my first scandal live performance. but not live.

people commented on haruna carrying this performance. thats an understatement. her new nickname is ATLAS.

Mami's olympic?white superstrat... have i seen that before? was that the guitar she played on AMDKJ?

but "one more time" is a good song. nodding to 80's city pop and euro pop.

Baseball bat? LOL But at least the colour was nice, right? Is that sonic blue?

That's a very interesting method you had when you were gigging. I was also very nervous during my concerts, but playing on drums is not a problem in this instance ;-) Anyway, stress or not, kudos to Mami!

Seriously, Haruna should be called from now on "Atlas-san" :-) Stellular performance.

Don't worry, you're not the only one struggling with the stream. I got the code about an hour later so I couldn't watch first half of the show live.

When you have seen that white stratocaster? I only remember the one during "Masterpiece", but it was yellow :-/

I'm glad that some of us like that 80's pop vibe in "One more time".

Don Dio wrote:I think she's an excellent front woman.  She always guides the mood of the show, and this performance was no exception.

It means it was actually live.  Besides, perfection is boring.

Tomomi is a great bassist, and I love watching her fingers move so effortlessly across the fretboard.  She looked the most lovely, too, btw.

...it was like comparing the beginning of STAR WARS to THE PHANTOM MENACE.

To me, a good live band plays with what they have on stage between the band members.

I realize Scandal is not a jam band...

They did seem a little tentative.  Maybe that was due to nerves, or the Covid situation, or the lay off from performing as much the past year and a half.

This is what a true leader does. At least for me, she has a natural stage presence (KftD gig!). After this year's concert I finally know, who is my favourite Scandal member HARU this

Perfection is boring? Absolutely! These days, when everything must be better than perfect, it is a fresh air to see that musicians are still human, not a song-generating-soulless-machines!

Call me obvious, but Tomomi with bass always looks lovely! And I still can't replicate the way she plays, with her straight pinky- it's so uncomfortable!

I heard "Saishuheiki, Kimi" live for the first time- does it always sound so energetic, almost agressive? That was a nice surprise.
 
That's a neat SW analogy! Or I should rather write: "impressive, most impressive" ;-)

Agree 100%! I like artists with real instruments, no backing tracks, modulated voices or other embelishments. I hope that I will never see Scandal with synthesizers, keyboard guitars or electronic drums- what a nightmare!

It depends what do you find interesting during concerts. Some people prefer when bands sound exactly like on the record. There's of course plenty of groups that do it quite the opposite, usually with good results (Band-Maid, of course).

Like many of us have concluded, this %#&@ covid HAD to be a factor during their performance. The whole situation in Japan right now is tentative.

And that's great about it! We all have different tastes, but we all like/love Scandal. For some of us "Eternal" was a bad choice for opening. But like you have mentioned, you were excited and I was quite touched at the very beginning of it. I'm glad there's so many opinions here- it would be boring if everyone would liked the same songs.

Alright, now I get what you mean. Sure, it looked more like a picnic, but again- what can be done? Yeah, real bands create a bond with the crowd during their shows, so when there's no energy in front of them the results are... not that satisfactory, if I can put it like that.
My tenure as a fan is too short (over a month) so I haven't seen all those crazy moments you have mentioned. But if it can be compared to Babymetal or Wagakki-Band's shows, when Japanese audience goes "cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs", I get it.

Hey, that's too pessimistic attitude! I get that "normal" should be redefined now, but I really, really hope that concerts will look like in pre-pandemic era. Experiencing it from the comfy armchair in your room is absolutely not the same! I hope that the days when you felt excitement, joy and unity with people around you will finally come back. Not to mention all those times when you were hit be someone's elbow or jumped on some guy's back. Good times Happy But I think that wasn't a normal behaviour during Scandal's concerts...

I guess you have some bad experience with them? I know about the hand signed photos issue, was there something else, if I mind asking? Actually, when I think about it, it was thanks to your and other people's intervention, that I came across this forum :-)

P.S. Wow, new emoticons TOMO wtf

yup the typical tele baseball bat neck shape. but i think it only looks like that in her small (and beautiful) hands. pretty sure its closer to the typical modern C shape of most of the current models. not sure of the color but it looks too gray to be sonic blue. i have a mustang in sonic blue.

yeah thats the one. depending on the color settings on your screen i can see how it might look yellow. but olympic white usually refers to an off-white, kinda vintage white color. and with true vintage instruments, olympic white actually does turn yellow after having been played for years in smoke filled rooms and absorbing the player's sweat.

i checked the AMDKJ video and it looks like the same model, i just think the lighting in the video made it look more white.

Pretty sure they were specifically for the band. But technically, anyone can do this on their own - you just need to buy two of the INVITATION shirts (black and purple , as the white one is for fan club members only) and splice them together lol

I have a suspicion Mami might have made these spliced t-shirts, previouly on the Mami's week of Feedback! sale, the clothes made by Mami many of the clothing were also spliced together by her, maybe will be revealed in future editions of Mania magazine?

Scandal fans have been splicing the red/blue Scandal shorts for a while as well some t-shirts too. So someone started a trend a while back Happy
Interesting, thanks for the info. Mami seems to be a bit of a fashion designer then.

When they came back out for the encore and the new single was announced on the big screen I checked the CDJapan app on my phone and it was already listed so it actually went in my basket before they performed one more time for the first time lol! I processed the order after the show.

I purchased the livestream bundle it will probably be the black T-shirt pictured, but would like the purple one. Unless of course Mami wants to splice together when one of those sweet two tones for me MAMI plz

I had the same message from them, too bad it was after the show :-/ It's been a while since I was so helpless, waiting for the code to arrive and counting down to the concert. It was a very emotional day for me, on many levels ;-)

So, maybe it's a sonic gray instead? Or even mystic surf green? That lighting during the concert really tricked my eyes... By the way sorry for stupid question, but what type of a Telecaster Deluxe it is? American Professional or Vintera? I'm not a guitarist, so it looks very nice to me, albeit bit chunky.

About that second guitar- I completely forgot about that yellowing factor! The same with plastic- I still have some yellow toys from my childhood that didn't stand the test of time ;-)
And just like you have mentioned, it must be the one from A.M.D.K.J. video, but there's one odd detail. After comparing both guitars almost frame by frame, it looks that the one from the concert has only two knobs instead of three. Maybe a small customisation, or it just simply fell off ;-) ?

And it looks like it has already become a bestseller on CDJapan :-) I pre-ordered mine on JPU Records- that's my first purchase from them and I hope I won't regret it.
That black version would be a decent option, but the one that Haruna was wearing during concert looks awesome (instantly caught my attention)!
I think they would be a long line behind you, waiting for the spliced ones ;-)
And if I'm not wrong, the purple one is available on the Feedback site.

So, does it mean they are only for band members, exclusive for official fanclub or available for us, mortals as well?

not a stupid question. and to be honest i do not know. i could not find that color on the fender website. it might be a japan exclusive. when i get a chance, i will get on the japan site to see if i can find it there.
edit: just looked. i believe it to be sonic gray from the american professional I series.


good catch. i did not notice that difference. and i guess its probably too late to go back and see. but with MAMI's red signature strat, i have seen that she removes the master volume knob (the one closest to her hand). its always been a problem with strat players, that master volume getting bumped by the picking/strumming hand, and changing the volume and tone in the process. i think she removes it for that reason. many strat players have made it a habbit to constantly reach down to the volume knob in between riffs/licks to make sure it is all the way up for this same reason. stevie ray vaughan is a good example.

It doesn't seem likely they would actually offer those t-shirts for sale. Like I had mentioned previously, you technically could have done it yourself by buying two of the INVITATION shirts and splicing them together, but unfortunately, overseas merch sales have already closed for those items.




Also, I posted a translation of Music Natalie's article about the concert here:

American Prof.? They all look so similar to me- I guess the main difference must be in their "guts" or the material they're made of, right?

That's a very interesting observation you gave me! Like I wrote before, I'm a  greenhorn in this subject, so I absorb every piece of information I can get!
Now, I'm just curious, why Mami didn't play on her white/yellow Stratocaster during A.M.D.K.J.? I think she played on it only once during the whole concert.

That's so nice of you- now everything is in one place. Thank you for that and although I've watched the stream only 1,5 times, seems that every picture is in the right order.

Like I had mentioned previously, you technically could have done it yourself by buying two of the INVITATION shirts and splicing them together, but unfortunately, overseas merch sales have already closed for those items.




Also, I posted a translation of Music Natalie's article about the concert here:

Thanks for clearing that up! I should have guessed that, looking at the back of the white T-shirt. I just thought that maybe there will be an update in that manner.
It's already sold out? I was thinking about another T-shirt but couldn't decide which one- now my problems are solved ;-) The one from the concert bundle will have to suffice.

P.S. Another article about the concert? I think I will never get bored reading about that gig!


Thanks for these links- I appreciate it!
I should have look there before asking, but there's too many interesting articles on this forum and I can't catch up over a decade in one month ;-)
From the visual point of view- both of them look awesome. In the perfect world, I would buy at least something similar and try to learn playing.
But for now, I will stick with what I have, at least until Tomomi won't put down her bass and retire.

As the stream was available throughout the week, I watched it multiple times. As others said, Haruna was on fire! She was emotional and vibrant, what a performance! Mami a little nervous at first, same for Rina and I don't know how to put it, but Tomomi looks very professional these days. I miss her singing more.

The production was excellent. Lights, led wristbands, bubbles, sound and camera work. Another good collaboration with NAKED, a huge vertical screen turned horizontal. Everything was well executed by the staff. I thought they would show the overseas comments on the screen, but we were snubbed again. Not that it really matters.

A different, solid good setlist. I would like to see some of the older songs with Haru's current vocals, but I understand their preference for newer songs. I would love a new performance of 'Sakura GOODBYE', but since that will never happen, I'm glad they played 'Kagerou', the best of the night for me.

'Saishuuheiki, Kimi' sounds much better live, there were gorgeous harmonies in 'Ivory', 'Ceramic Blue' and 'One Piece'. Oh, that rock segment with 'AMDKJ', 'Take Me Out', 'Image' was nothing short of spectacular!

I loved 'One More Time', a very catchy disco pop song. It should be fun to see the band hit the dance floor for the music video. This is your chance Haru! Mami!

That concludes my third live stream (KFTD, Seasons, INVITATION). Hope there's more to come! I will definitely support the band.
