It’s been a rather busy few months, trying (and not very successfully) to dust off the blog.
L’Arc~en~Ciel came to Singapore on April 28th. It was a pretty surreal experience considering that I never ever imagined that I’d have a chance to hear them live, which I accomplished last year in Osaka, and now barely 6 months later, I got to see them, this time on our very sunny shores!
The Set List was pretty solid:
3. Good Luck My Way
5. DRINK IT DOWN
9. DAYBREAK’S BELL
10. forbidden lover
11. My Heart Draws A Dream
12. SEVENTH HEAVEN
13. The 4th avenue cafe
14. STAY AWAY
15. READY STEADY GO
17. winter fall
18. BLURRY EYES
I was rather delighted to hear Anata (finally!) because they didn’t play it live last year and it’s one of my favourite songs. Thanks to one of my friends, we managed to get pretty awesome seats and I could focus on looking at the band rather than staring at the screens.
The crowd was a lot more muted than the Osaka bunch. There’s just something about the folks over there. They know what to do for every single song. Every gesture, how to respond, the crowd there was so much crazier, but I think that’s what makes lives so wonderful, when you’re with a bunch of fans who truly love a band and their music.
Nevertheless the last part – Niji was beautiful sight because they released the feathers and made it a very magical experience.
Not bad for 12 years of fandom. 😀
