I'm not in a good mood today, anyway i'll try to report my 2nd experience at Dir en Grey live here in Brazil this last Sunday...
(I get off home 4 am.)
I was there at the queue almost 7 am. hoping to get in the meet & greet, there were so many
So there were me on the street with my sunglasses on and Dum Spiro Spero t-shirt...
Some looks like real fans, i mean they know the DSS songs, singing it when others where just some fellers or Visual Kei fangirls, imaging seen them in VK looks? no way.
Hmm the queue was extremely bad organized!!! the fans were wild, no respect. And this continues like this until 2 pm...when i needed to exchange my voucher to the official tickets.
When it was 3 pm i was on the first group line to get in the show....
4 pm Dir en Grey arrived!!!!! i saw them in the van! I remember saw Shinya on the frontseat, next i saw Kyo and then Toshiya was sitting in backseat of the van, with hand on chin looking through closed window and waved.
So more time has passed...
5 pm Still on the queue, i could listen to Dir en Grey testing equipment... some part of Different Sense/Yokusou Ni DREAMBOX/Lotus Kyo screaming sound was low but i could hear it xD, i couldn't see anyone noticing that.And i keep telling to my sister "can you hear?"
6:40 pm Nora and other Staff from Dir en Grey appear on the street near us, i was like oh i know her, it's Nora!
and then i make my \m/\m/ metal pose while she took some pictures of the queue...then she moved to front of me and took the picture haha. IoI
7 pm The queue started to move! we're getting in!!
8 pm Support Act : 10 Years (Everyone were screaming "Dir en Grey" before they started.)
9 pm DIR EN GREY
So i run to get the front, it was soo sufocating, i couldn't breath there, and well there were 50 people making 3 lines in front the stage and fuck i decided to get out of there. I was about 3/4 metters distance from the stage...quite close, i could see everything!!
When i heard the intro of KYOUKOTSU NO NARI i started to cry...that piano, that chaos...when it's over Dir en Grey appear on the stage... Kaoru, Die, Toshiya, Shinya and Kyo...
Kaoru was really very quiet with his perm hair :) black clothes, purple shoes e crosses. Die in black hoodie, looks like he was having fun! :D smiling all the time! Toshiya was not so energetic as the last show in 2009. (Remembering he jumping on the stage left and right! oh) for me he was trying to give his best and a little sleepy, Shinya was intense o-o; in white long sleeve shirt, i was very impressive seeing him playing, he is quiet too :) i admire his actitude.
Kyo was wearing a mask, one furry cardigan, leather crop pants, legging or stockings? and combat boots.Very very performatic, unique and genial, monstruos performance...making a Belzebub dance ohh, Yokusou Ni DREAMBOX...he was literaly creating a Blossoming Belzebub on the stage! cool, stunning, magic...speachless.
I was singing every song all the time, my favorite songs played was Ruten no Tou, Hagueshisa to Kono(...), Lotus, Shitataru Mourou, DIFFERENT SENSE and Kodou.
I love INWARD SCREAM moment the best! is like receiving some kind of divine energy... i put my hands high and close my eyes again receiving the energy... cool.
Some idiots behind me were screaming "Cage" Goddamn!! please be quiet in INWARD SCREAM! is that hard? so me and my fiancé turned and asked them for silence. Some people can think i'm boring, but it's my way of being a fan of Dir en Grey.
Some facts i follow are: Respect! (yes,
DECAYED CROW finished and they left the stage, about 5 minutes later...they got back for the encore with Kodou!
Withering to Death is a kick-ass album for sure, at the first i was soo dizzy that i tought it was The Final (they played it in 2009), but at the same time i correct it saying it's Kodou to my fiancé who got deaf from one ear. Kodou is awesome for sure! so at that time too, my fiancé got back with a bottle of water for me, then i drunk it and trow it on my head haha and on the people in my front.
At the Reiketsu nariseba and Rasetsukoku i gone wild and went to the front of the stage! with the other crazy people, punching and pushing each other! IoI and i was only listening to the Shinya's drums and Kyo roars!
23:30 pm The show was over, Die and Kaoru were the last to leave the stage, they were throwing guitar picks away to the audience, i was pretty close to Kaoru at this moment, i couldn't take the picks, but when he looked at me i freezed! he is soo serious! no smile, always with the same quiet expression.
Die came closer to the left of the stage where Kaoru was... so happy, smilling, never seen him with such big smile o-o he looked
Is so different to see them in real sizes xD then on a video, or a big gig where you can see then so distant and small haha.
Toshiya and Die looked so tall personaly.
I was thinking about make a short post, but i couldn't. Thank you so much Dir en Grey for coming to Brazil, yes it was HOT!
Then i went to the goods stand to buy one t-shirt and so we drive back home.
