- just one word. WONDERFULR. The members of Arsahi worked so hard about the structure and staging. I had fully realized their feeling of wanting to make the audiences have fun. The screen staging, structure of the wirework, the effort and will of the staffs to make audiences warm up. I have watched Arashi concert since their first concert. this year seems the best.

-I have been to Arashi concert for Fuji Koro work. Kokuritsu with 70K audiences is a full house. People who could not get tickets surrounded the stadium. I watched it among the many press. The structure and stage by Jun matsumoto was wonderful since he often watch Kabuki and study from it.

- We have been to theArashi concert. I haven’t imagined that I could see what a wonderful thing it was. It was so fun. We published a concert report. Can’t wait for photos and report? Well, really, Arashi-san concert was so fun, I still have fuzzy feelings. Right after thr concert, I went back to the directory office and worked over night. I’m still cheerful. There was no need to drink Red bull. I consider Arashi’s title “concert idol” on my own, I certainly realized it today. The concert that you can feel the outpouring charm of Arashi, their fundamental power, their reclamation sprit, make me teary. As I watched such good concert, it’s so fun to think about the structure of the concert report.

- Ara-fes was held yesterday and today. This was a project that the members proposed when they held the concert at the National Kasumigaoka stadium, 5th year for Arashi. The content and set list was structured from the requests of the fans, and on the stage, only 5 of them does the performance without using any Johnny’s junior as back up dancers.
This was already revolutionary, the set list being based on 270K people’s requests. The content of the concert that had 70K people for a day was overwhelming and filled with the feeling of happiness. Various types of staging such as balloons, fire works, water fountain, crane etc that they showed at the huge concert was total mobilization and got more powerful.
In addition, the upper side suddenly had the live orchestra appeared and each member appeared along DJ by Jun Matsumoto. They performed prime menu for fans. Their ideas and man power are at full volume. they practice many tunes that they haven’t performed at concerts for a while. They did all on their own, even the part that they let back dancers to do. At the same time they also handle their busy work of TV, movie etc. The group of Arashi who can create such entertainment that is highly motivated and can fill the audiences mind with happiness, is really amazing.
The rest, however such giant concert, it would be only Arashi who contrives ways that for people who’s seated in various seats can see one member at least upclose. It was the night I realized that their aspect filled with love and gratefulness is what makes their concert so touching, CUT/H mag editor section will chase Arashi at full power.
