[concert] "THE ACOUSTIC 2016" ~1st Premium Tour~

Postby micaddict » Thu Apr 28, 2016 8:31 am

Went to the opening night at Wakō City, Saitama Pref.....

There were no electric instruments (of course it's an acoustic tour^^, but sometimes 'el.p' 'el.g' 'el.b' according to the original recordings), no chorus, no MC (except a short greetings after finishing 2 songs and a short comment on the song "Song for a wish" and lastly a short thanks after encore) and no showiness.
But there was extremely rich expressiveness in her voice that moved us deeply.... Performance time 105 min.
Personally, "Song for a wish" Mika dedicated to the Kumamoto Quake Victims touched my heartstrings.

No one ever expected the opening song!! :mrgreen:
Japanese translation was projected on the 'scrim'!!

A 'sudden' information on the Tour posted on the official site and others!!..... 2016.05.09

:arrow: Information about a refund for the show at Fukuoka Symphony Hall on May 12th.

We're going to hold the show at FSH on 5/12 as scheduled.
In the light of the impact of the heavy damage from Kumamoto Quake, for our guests who are unable to come to the venue by any possibility due to transportation problems, we've decided to make arrangements for a refund of tickets.

"Mika steadily keeps on walking upstairs!!!"

I attended the "semi-fianl" show at Tokyo NHK on 22nd July.
We could get 5 rows from the front, but on that day, video cameras were set up (don't know what they were for!) and 1st and 2nd rows were removed. So we sat 3rd rows!! (same distance though^^)

It was a show in which we could realize that Mika could 'completely' recover from her ear disorder. Especially, her classic "Yuki no Hana" (best performance I've ever heard^^) and "Hanataba" and "Song for a Wish" were very very impressive.
And the song that was added from May 7th, "LOVE NO CRY" made the show really lively like in "Let's Music Tour".

btw.....
Coldfeet (watusi and Lori) came and saw the show and watusi-san posted a moving story here.
https://www.facebook.com/Watusi.COLDFEE ... 3900862681
"...on the way home, I muttered to Lori that I felt like I could have a weight lifted off my shoulders a bit... our feelings tonight that nobody else might be able to understand...joyous night"

w/fans.............(Lori is looking "Fine" ;) )

***additionally...
:idea: There's a "dance performance" on an instrumental music of Mika's LIFE as an interlude in the middle of the show.
I didn't notice in the opening in April but this time, I found in the dark the guitarist Sasaki Takayuki-san was playing the "violin"!!! I didn't know his profile on the net, "guitarist, violinist, chorus, arranger, composer"
...Wow!! 8-)
