Surprise NaB's Concert today!!!  
Today while trying in vain to get tickets to something special, I got a phone call-- "Hey are you coming to the NaB's live today?" My immediate response was, "They're having a live? What??" I had no idea. I've been so busy I haven't had time to keep up with everything, so the announcement had slipped right by me. Apparently earlier in the day there was some sort of fan-event where they would take ketai pictures with a few fans, but it's okay that I missed that.And the concert was later on. ^^ The above-mentioned phone call, though, happened at a little past 3. The concert was scheduled for 4:30 in Harajuku. Ooh.

I wasn't sure that I could make it so I said maybe, but went home and got dressed was actually able to make it in plenty of time. Aloni met us there-- it was a free concert in the very prominent KDDI design building at the end of Takeshita-dori. Basically, they set up the NaB's in this stage-area inside the very open first floor of the building, and simultaneously broadcast it not only inside on a giant screen, but outside on an even more giant screen!! The concert lasted for about an hour, including one encore, and so half of Harajuku was treated to the NaB's playing to their best for an hour! AMAZING exposure!!!

There wasn't too big of a crowd, but it was also a pretty small space for a concert. ^^ What they had was comfortably crowded, and there were LOTS of passerby that stopped to watch (including a rather amusing pair of foreign guys who had no idea what was going on, and got in trouble trying to take pictures. XDXD). It was really, REALLY neat!! I'm glad thatI went!!

They opened with Wake Up Your Heart and then talked for a bit about how we should all watch Yu-Gi-Oh to hear their music for the opening theme and to hear Kenn's voice acting. Most of the girls in the front though had not only already watched it but seemed to regularly watch it, which surprised Kenn! XD He then 'treated' us to a short rendition of him as his character in the new Yu-Gu-Oh game. Me = completely unfamiliar with the game. I've only seen his performance in Yu-Gi-Oh because it used to be on before Tenipuri and I would often catch the end of it while waiting. ^^;; (Me = bad fan? But I don't really care for Yu-Gi-Oh..) After this, they went into a slightly different version of Believe, had another talk session where they all told jokes and made fun of each other, and then played a few more of their more popular songs.

My highlight came when.. surprise surprise!!! Karl announced that he was going to sing Party Night, and Kenn went to take up an instrument----- NOT his keyboard!! Instead, he took Karl's discarded guitar and put it on!! What? I didn't know Kenn could play the guitar too!!! Neither did most of the other people, it seemed!! Kenn was a little embarrassed, but took the gasps in stride, and he was GOOD!! He played REALLY well. He must have practiced really hard. But I was still in a happy state of shock that Kenn played the guitar! That is so awesome!! (Kenn love!)

During one of the talk sessions, the band announced their next 2 concerts!! They're having another one-man live (yay!!!! Titled "A happy new year gig" roflol!!) on January 8th in Harajuku! I can't wait!!! (Miyu you should be happy!!! ^_______^) They're also participating in a concert-festival thing with 25 other small bands in Roppongi on December 31st. But Kenn stopped them in the middle of the announcement, saying "wait.. I can't be in it. I'll be in Osaka for Tenimyu then. Well, I guess that I could come back just for the concert and then go back.." Yeah, right Kenn. XD They're going to perform without Kenn, and they joked about wondering how many people will come if he's not there!! I'll still come if I can!!

They played a long set at the end, including two of my favorites -- Karl and Kenn's new duet (Again-- I LOVE THIS SONG!!!) and Tobe (I love it because it's so bouncy!!!!! ♥). Kenn had the gayness turned full up, partnering with both Karl and Rasta a few times during the songs. I love when he drapes himself over them! Then they left, without a lot of fanfare on their part-- because they were just waiting for us to start shouting for an encore!! Apparently everyone remembered the last live where the Tenimyu boys went crazy in the back with their chants, and started doing the same-- shouting "Encore!! NaB's!! Encore!! NaB's!!" They came running out and while they took suggestions (most of which were "The NaB's theme!!!" like always), they of course did Wake Up Your Heart again. ^___^ I love this song!! Then it was bye-bye NaB's!!

Ahh, I miss them already!! ^___^ I LOVE the NaB's concerts!!!!!!! ♥ Also, I got to see some friends again who I haven't seen since the last concert! We had dinner together, and a great time all around! Ahhh, it was a GREAT day!!!!! ♥ ♥

What do you need, exactly?
☆花☆huahua on October 31st, 2005 10:19 am (UTC)
It's this seller who doesn't want to ship internationally. So I was thinking of getting your help. ^^"
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on October 31st, 2005 10:58 am (UTC)
You could have her ship it here, but you'd have to send me a money order to cover the shipping of sending it to you. ^^;
☆花☆huahua on October 31st, 2005 11:00 am (UTC)
Oh yes of course! I mean the money thingy. ^^" Thanks for being willing to help. T.T;;
I will have to ask her before I bid, thank you!
