HAPPY 41st BIRTHDAY, KAMIYA HIROSHI!
It was announced on this week’s show that for the show’s 10th anniversary, there will be a DGS EXPO event held at Saitama Super Arena on June 25 and 26.
For the uninitiated, Saitama Super Arena is where large concerts such as AniSama are held. It has a maximum capacity of 37,000. There are not yet any details as to exactly what the event will be or what they will do, but this is quite likely the first time a radio show has held an event at such a large venue. Way to start the new year!
The opening and ending songs for DGS changed in October. The new songs Monster’s Show and TRIBE DRIVE will be released on December 9, 2015. Unlike previous releases, this CD will only be sold at Animate stores and the Chou! A&G Shop online store. At Animate you can receive a special ticket holder and B2-sized poster. At Chou! A&G Shop, the bonus is an L-sized bromide. The photos on each will be different. The CD retails for 1200 yen, tax exclusive, and the track list is as follows:
- Monster’s Show
- TRIBE DRIVE
- Monster’s Show (off vocal)
- TRIBE DRIVE (off vocal)
- DG Exercise
More information can be found on the DUE page.
My morning started very early on the first day. Got up at 4:45AM to take the first train. My friends and I ended up on the same train after a couple transfers and reached Makuhari after 6. We headed to the venue and followed the line to find the end. I swear, it was the first time I had seen this part of Makuhari! I never knew there was a river nearby! The line was so long and it took us at least 5-8 minutes to get to the end. Took the first time yet already there were at least 2000 people in line. >__>; Goods were going to start at 9 but they ended up starting early at 8:30. The line actually went rather quickly. There were lots of registers so it only took about an hour and a half to get into the actual purchasing area, but alas, the cushion sold out first and then as I was already in line at one of the registers, the plush sold out too. =( Luckily they plan on selling all of the goods on the fan club website later. I was afraid that they would only be selling leftovers. Went home after buying goods since I had a few hours before the live would begin. On my way back to the venue, I went with a different friend who drove us there. As we walked towards the venue from the parking lot, I spotted Okiayu Ryoutarou and Terase Kyouko. ^^;; I’m guessing they were on their way backstage since they didn’t go up the escalator like we did.
Inside the venue, my seats for the first day were 4th row on the second floor in the G block, so the first block closest to the stage. It was quite close! Also saw steps going down towards the stage so I knew Kamiya would be coming our way. Our seats were close to the aisle too! =D For the second day I was also in the G block but up on the 3rd floor. It was a little further but the view of the stage was still very good. There was a center stage and a walkway connecting it to the main stage. They had an instrumental version of my diary (New chapter) playing in the background. Cue the excitement when the music stopped and the lights went down. Read more…
