Saitama Super Arena
It was a rainy day but it didn't stop the fans like me on going to the concert.The concert started with this large screen showing Hikki (same as the CM for Ultra Blue Album). Slowly Hikki appeared in the center stage with this black & white dress (see Sendai rehearsal pics). Passion was the first song followed by This is Love. Then she greeted the crowd and said "it has been 6 years since the last tour, I'm sorry for keeping you waiting for so long..." but for her fans it is worth the wait! Next she sang Traveling, Movin' On, Sakura Drops, Final Distance and finishing off the first part of the concert with First Love...The crowd were really fired up and clapping hard everytime.

A long series of visual shows, displaying heavy rains, thunder abd strong winds started the second part of the concert. Suddenly the stage was all in red then Hikki showed up with this black and red dress with her hair fixed like in the devil inside cd cover(see ultra blue united blog pics>>> http://blog.goo.ne.jp/ultrablueunited/). She sang Devil Inside, Kremlin Dusk and You Make Me Want To Be A Man..She then changed to this red dress and black boots (kinda like her dress in the Colors music video) performing Be My Last, Dare Ka No...(Hikki and the cellist only) then Colors (she slowed the tempo of this song...kind of a ballad version). Then she sang Can You Keep A Secret, Addicted To You, Wait & See, Letters and finally Keep Tryin'..She said Thank You, waved goodbye and left the stage with the band but it wasnt the end yet....

I think it was around 10-15 minutes of non-stop clapping from the 18,000+ fans waiting for Hikki and the band to show up again...I was overwhlemed on how Japanese support an idol on that point...Hikki came back wearing a pink and blue skirt (see pics here> http://blog.goo.ne.jp/ultrablueunited/) then sang Automatic. Hikki told the crowd that the final song is her favorite of all and has some big importance to her, plus her name was on it...Hikari was the last song..Then confetti's dropped and she finally said Thank you and Goodbye along with the band...The concert ended around 9:15pm. Though it was raining that day, Overall it was a great concert and have enjoyed every moment of it. It was a dream come true for a fan like me who wanted to see her in person since i became a fan back in 1999..I was in the Philippines back then..Hope I can share more of my experience by uploading some pictures that I took...Enjoy minasan!

Oooohhh...
You've made me jealous.
Had I only KNOWN about this concert before it was over, NOTHING would have stopped me from going.
Not to mention it was only nine days from my birthday. I mean, can you say "PERFECT B-day present"?!
I suppose my only choice now is to purchase the DVD...
I'm happy for you, though. You lucky, lucky person. You had better cherish that experience forever.
