One week from now, GLAY will enbark on their 2013 JUSTICE & GUILTY Arena Tour in Japan. The first location will be at Osaka-jo Hall in Osaka. I really, really wanted to attend this concert, but I wasn't able to get tickets. From what I've experienced, GLAY lives in Osaka are simply the best! The fans are definitely more outgoing. I will be attending the tour on April 27 & 28 in Fukuoka and also on May 5 in Saitama.
Below is my live report on a GLAY live I attended in Osaka a little more than two years ago (wow! I can't believe that it's been that long.) Feel free to relive my crazy exposure to a GLAY live in Osaka!
GLAY's ROCK AROUND THE WORLD 2010-2011 TOUR @ OSAKA-JO HALL
Another fantastic concert from GLAY! Even though I had standing tickets way up in the nose-bleed section, I had the best time EVER!!! The back row looked like a dance hall; it was awesome! And so many of us in my section kept screaming out their names!! It's nice not being the only one doing the screaming. I made good friends with the girl standing next to me. Omg, this girl was a head-banging freak---love her!! I invited her to stand next to me before the concert began because she was standing behind me and I had a feeling she wanted to fit in closer to the railing. She thanked me profusely. Then 汚れなきSEASON came up. Omg, this girl was head-banging like her life depended on it. I was just laughing to myself. She was so~ into the songs; the entire back audience was. It was just incredible. When FATSOUNDS and 彼女 came up, she and I were doing all sorts of crazy stuff together! Us standing people where dancing the hell out of these songs! (Ok, not really "dancing"... body movements I guess.) Awesomeness!! I spoke with that girl (her name's Kaori) throughout the encore chants and after the show. We exchanged contacts and we're definitely going to a GLAY live together! Another friend gained!
The dome-shaped building is Osaka-jo Hall.
