May 2nd. L’Arc~en~Ciel World Tour in Jakarta. Damn. Where should I start? Even after days I’m still pretty much mindblown ;;
I arrived on the venue by 11 am sharp because I have to redeem my voucher with concert ticket. After that me and my friend were off to have lunch at Senayan City with her friend. We’re there up to 3 pm and get back to the venue with taxi.
The queue to get in was super longgg. Dayum. After two separate queues, we along with other premium tix holders were able to get in. I was on the far left, in front of Tetsu but at the back of the premium section. I can see the boys quite clearly on the stage and the giant screen was awesomely huge standing.
At 7.45 there’s an announcement that if it’s raining, the concert will be postponed until it stopped. It was drizzling already. But it immediately stopped nearby 8 pm and the show begun!
The animation was awesome and the three screens were in their absolute clear quality. They started off with Ibara no Namida and I was literally burst into tears. I SAW MY CHILDHOOD HEROES. FINALLY. FINALLY. They looked so amazing in real life. Hyde has pretty much milky white skin peeking from his long white tank top (occasional nipple peeking, if I can add lol) covered with long cardigan (?) with long braided hair. So pretty. Tetsu is adorable with skinhead spiky hair and long suit. Ken looks cool with brown shirt and silver suit while Yukihiro drumming with maroon and blue stripes tank top. They carried on with Chase and Revelation.
They rocked the show for 2.5 hours nicely. Hyde’s voice is super stable and others carry on their instruments nicely. And guess what, THEY KEPT SPEAKING INDONESIAN THROUGHOUT THE SHOW. Countless times Hyde were throwing kisses to us and his chu voice was so audible through the mic. I can’t stop kyaa kyaa-ing xD
“Halo, Jakarta. Kami L’Arc~en~Ciel. Kalian senang bertemu aku? Aku juga. Selamat meniku-mati.” – Hyde
((Hello, Jakarta. We’re L’Arc~en~Ciel. Are you happy to see me? Me too. Hope you’ll enjoy this show.))
“Mantap! Gue kemaren lusa pergi foto-foto di Kota Tua. Foto-fotonya keren banget deh.
Jakarta tuh panas gila yah? Makanya kemaren gue berenang. Pengennya sih sama cewe-cewe pake bikini. Cuma nasib, adanya cuma gue sama temen-temen gue. Hari ini ada yang pakai bikin nggak?
Semalem gue makan mie goreng, nasi goreng sama sate. Mantap! Kemaren gue beli oleh-oleh buat Hyde di Pasaraya. Wayang, gamelan, ganjelan pintu, sama bolpen wayang. By the way busway, pasti sekarang Hyde ga ngerti gue ngomong apaan.” – Ken « this part was super hilarious and I’m suffering stomach cramp lol
((Awesome! A day before yesterday, I went to have photoshoot at Kota Tua. The pics were so cool.
Jakarta is so hot, eh? So yesterday I went swimming. I wanna go swim with girls in bikini but damn there’s only me and my two friends. Is there anyone wearing bikini now?
Last night, I ate fried noodle, fried rice and satay. Awesome! Yesterday I bought stuffs for Hyde in Pasaraya. Wayang, gamelan, door stopper and wayang ballpoint. By the way busway, Hyde must be don’t understand what I’m saying right now.))
“Gue SuJu dari Korea! Kalian mau pisang…..gue? Atau kalian mau jilat lollipop gue?” – Tetsu
((I’m SuJu from Korea! Do you guys want my…..bananas? Or you guys wanna lick my lollipop?))
Poor Tetchan got boo-ed when he said SuJu xD Yuki didn’t say anything.
Hyde cried during Forbidden Lover ;___; later he said in an interview it was because we’re one of the best audiences he ever played too. And said thank you so many times. No, Daddy. Thank YOU :D
Anata was glorious omg it was drizzling so me and my bestie pull over an umbrella and we’re waving lightstick underneath it. Just the two of us hahahah super romanticcc.
Too bad they didn’t play Winterfall or Blurry Eyes :'( I already wait for those songs /sobs but the sing along during My Heart Draws A Dream was amazing ;____; 10k+ ppl singing. There goes me crying again.
By the last song Niji, Hyde said that he’ll come back again. And he looked so happy as he went off the stage. I found myself crying while Tetsu throwing bananas and lollipops to the audiences. I love you so much, Guys. See you in your second time here. I promise I’ll be in the very front so you can see me. The one who have been touched by your music for my whole life :)
