“In the past, there were only ‘Lady’ in our live (Laugh)” (Yonghwa)
An exploding male fan. They showed their improvement and evolution.
The last performance of the 2 days in Tokyo for [CNBLUE Zepp Tour 2013 ~Lady~] was held on Aug 7th (Wed).
The stage light turned from blue to red, CNBLUE appeared. “Are you ready?” When Yonghwa said so, they just started to play ‘Where you are’. Even while we were used to hear this song, we felt they improved. The groove that was made from intertwined sound and sound put the listeners on excitement. CNBLUE kept singing and played ‘In My Head’ and ‘Time Is Over’ aggressively. There was an atmosphere of excitement in the venue. Jungshin made a demagogic gesture again and again. During the talking time, Yonghwa said “We want to get your passion till the end”. He seemed to already think about ‘Summer Sonic 2013’ and the performance in Zepp Osaka. Minhyuk said he got a haircut, but it was like a different person with him when he is focused to play the drum.
“Don’t Care’ and ‘Greedy Man’ are the simple songs that made use of the tone of the acoustic guitar. These songs have a cool and nostalgic air, and made a different atmosphere then the beginning of the live. When they played ‘Try Again, Smile Again’ and Yonghwa and Jonghyun sang it, the atmosphere in the venue turned into happiness. The scene that they sang with fans seemed that they had a conversation, and it experienced wholeness and harmony. It was a happy surprise that Yonghwa sang impromptu with his acoustic guitar. Yonghwa let Jungshin sing “this is the last day of Tokyo, so sad~~”. Yonghwa followed it and sang “Thank you everybody~” “We will be here again”. Jonghyun lapped over with his electric guitar and the other members sang together “I am a genius!” “Your song is great” “My voice is best” etc. At the end of impromptu, Yonghwa said “CNBLUE is the best! We are top of the world!’ They acted casually on this impromptu, but this was not possible without their harmony and each ability.
After they played a sweet love song “Love Light” in Korean, the atmosphere in the venue changed to the mature and serious mood when Jonghyun sang ‘eclipse’ and Yonghwa sang ‘Y. Why’. On the other hand, they made another scene with pink and white lights on “Blind Love”. That was different from any scene . ‘Robot’ that Yonghwa’s shouted was impressive. ‘Coffee Shop’ that built a feeling of unity with call and response. Their set list was well-modulated and it made the most of what one has for each song. The last song was ‘Lady’ that is the title song of this tour. It has a disco sound and shows it is CNBLUE. Yonghwa’s natural steps raised our spirits, this song is verified that it’s good for a live. At the last of the live, the other members gathered around Minhyuk and they faced to each other and played each instrument.
During the encore, they appeared on stage with live T-shirts. Yonghwa said “Since you are getting hyper in the live, we became more and more hyper! We make the live together, not only CNBLUE. Since our distance is so close, we can get hyper early.” ”We had only 7 people in our first live”. He looked over the packed venue and was impressed by it and said “My hearts is too full for words”. Even after he said to the fans ‘Ladies and Gentlemen…”, he laughed and said “ In the past, there were only ‘Lady’ in our live”. It was very moving that they looked happy when the fan boy (man) give them a loud cheer. There was the sound of a huge roar when CNBLUE played “Teardrops In The Rain” with their beautiful harmony. The last song of the encore was “Starlit Light”. Jonghyun who has composed this song explained the episode for it. “When I saw a shooting star in Niigata, I felt it was good”. He also said “This is a feeling that was given by you, the fans. So let’s sing together” The fans clapped their hands and sang together beneath the mirror ball.
Because they have a wide variety of music, the show became furious, although the color of rock that is underlying does not wobble. And on the stage we can see each member’s confident attitude. After this performance, the first time they will appear is on Summer Sonic 2013. Did they feel anything while watching a new world? If the promise that Yonghwa made, “We will be back here again”, will come true, we look forward to watching them who would accomplish future growth.
