[TRANS] Live Report CNBLUE 「SPRING LIVE 2016 ~We’re like a puzzle~」 in Tokyo Budokan by Mnet Japan

CNBLUE, said that their 5th Anniversary Tour has the highest sense of unity!!

1.JPG

 

4-membered rock band CNBLUE has just celebrated their final tour of 「SPRING LIVE 2016 ~We’re like a puzzle~」in Osaka-Jo Hall on May 31st 2016.

This tour is a Spring Concert for Single “Puzzle” which released on May 11th. Start from Nagoya at Nippon Gaishi Hall on May 22nd, Tokyo at Nippon Budokan on May 26th-27th, and Osaka at Osaka-Jo Hall on May 31st, 3 cities with 4 performances and 40,000 audiences. This live report will tell about the Tokyo Budokan concert on May 27th.

Ever since their Japan major debut stage at Yokohama Arena back in 2011, CNBLUE has been well-known with their center stage that’s surrounded by the audiences. In this tour, rather than having a center stage, it provides a normal position seat for the audiences but with 360 degrees shaped (the seats surrounding the stage, meanwhile the stage is just normal but can be visible in 360degree view). It’s only a simple stage configuration to show-down the performance, rather than relying on the LED monitor video production to set a rock band looks.

The opening starts with a new-released song “Puzzle”. Even it’s CNBLUE’s first wedding song themed, Yonghwa skipped his vocals from the start, he was running around from the main stage through the back of the stage. He made such a distance to the audience seats and stretched his hands to the fans. “I was always at the center of the stage being rotated, but today, instead of rotating, there are 3 person running around the stage in front of me”, Drummer Minhyuk said. The distance itself has an inevitable excitement.

In addition, for the classic songs “Can’t Stop” and “Hold My Hand”, Yonghwa moved from guitar to piano section, the venue starts to rise and join the song at the chorus part, and then play the nostalgic song of their indie era “Lie”. The new song, of course, made the audiences happy, but also tickles the heart of audience and also surprising since it’s a long-time-ago song for them. At the up-beat rock song “Ryu Can Do It”, Yonghwa enjoyed singing the rap part, he also did the “Mworago” dance during “I’m Sorry” and putting the hands up and down while having a call-and-response session with the audiences, which make the venue explodes. Yonghwa and Jungshin running around the stage’s runway, and made fan’s excitement reach it’s climax. Yonghwa got sweaty, “It’s like I just took a shower (laughs). You guys always cheer me up, it’s impressing to see it from the top of the stage,” said him proudly with a deep emotion. During Jonghyun’s MC part, a male fan shouted “Saranghaeyo~!”, which means Jonghyun also has male fan (LOL).

In the ‘Ballad Corner’, Jonghyun made a big success, since he has a number of successful ballad song for CNBLUE. After a long time, Jonghyun sang “Eclipse” with a pure vocal and acoustic guitar sound. Yonghwa rushed to the corner and said “I want to dance!” with a high spirit. Jonghyun said “the tension is rising too much”, the fun is also unbearable since it’s been a long time for Yonghwa whose recently active in China for shooting a movie. He also said “Let’s enjoy it all today, it won’t come out again for twice!”, “Hide and Seek” started and he even dance without his guitar. In “Wake up” the fans gone extremely crazy because suddenly six trumpets, trombone, and saxophone horns in any sections (of the stage) and surprised the fans. Each member made themselves as the lecturer for the choreography, but then Jonghyun shows an appreciable dance ability, which makes the audience surprised and yelled “o~” as their voice of admiration. Meanwhile, Jungshin was struggling to dance and everyone cheered him “Good luck~”. Jonghyun tried to change the rhythm of the drum while Minhyuk still dancing at the center of the stage, he said “Everyone, let’s do it!” which also makes audience’s focus moved.  After successfully made such a deep communication with fans during “Wake up”, they then pulling the climax again with the strong bass arrangement on “Lady”, continued with their Korean track “Cinderella” and their latest one “YOU’RE SO FINE”, made fans full of excitement and put them together as a squad in the sense of unity, and also didn’t give them a time to breathe.

At the encore, Yonghwa took the baton to command fans for making a “wave” from the top to the second floor seats at Budokan Arena, “That’s the best wave ever! Buy the DVD of today’s concert later! You’ll see how good it is” he said with satisfaction. “Budokan has become one”, Junghin said, “today’s live is appealing. I’ll always say thank you. I filled with a deep emotion to be able to do live with you all together. Since the songs are well-made, it also good to be performed live! Let’s be happy in the future, 10 years, 20 years…even if we’re running all the way for 70 years, we want to sing together with you all. I pray for everyone, I pray for KUMAMOTO. I hope by listening to our music you can do your best in the future. We’ll see you again in LIVE!” and Yonghwa conclude it all with his smile, then closed with the live performance of “YOUNG FOREVER”.

[TRANS] CNBLUE “Puzzle” Interview with eXcite MUSIC Japan

06_0101_01

 

CNBLUE’s first wedding song “Puzzle” finally released, and the official interview published

 

CNBLUE will release a new single, “Puzzle” on May 11th  which will be their 10th single. It become the band’s first wedding song.

 

Having 10th single on the 5th year anniversary of your debut is completed! It’s a sweet pop song, but what is the theme?

Yonghwa : Frankly speaking, it’s “Wedding Song”. On our 5th year Japan debut anniversary I have thought that it’s interesting if I have one song about wedding to be included to the album, so I take it as a challenge. I tried to make pop melodies and lyrics with a story, but also linked to the visual, such as a CD jacket and MV, or if you want to show a happy time, such as love and marriage, to your important person by listening to a song? CNBLUE’s “Wedding Song” can be the choice!

Jungshin : It is refreshing, but also has a pleasant sound to portray the early summer. When I first heard it, I honestly thought that it’s a good song.

Jonghyun : Yeah, it’s really good. The melody also easy listening and catchy, it’d likely be exciting to be performed live!

Minhyuk  : The song makes me move and feel the energy. It has such a bright atmosphere, I like it.

 

There were a lot of songs which made such a “conflict” to be picked as the theme around Japanese debut, but later the theme about love song follows in your Japan and Korean songs recently, doesn’t it? Is a love song is booming for you now, Yonghwa?

Yonghwa : It doesn’t mean it’s booming, especially for me, but because this time the theme is about “The Wedding Song” so it’s necessarily match with love songs.

 

When is that ‘turning’ time (to decide the song theme)?

Yonghwa : Actually, it’s rusted. I got the feeling like “it’s surely will become a good song”. Since “fancy/colorful lead song” thought was in my head, so I think that this song must be catchy. The arrangement is bright, the music elements consist of 60% upper band sound and 40% dance music. So CNBLUE’s band sound isn’t the main of it.

 

Yonghwa, the member said in a Japan fan meeting that you are “not likely into a marriage”, but do you have any desire for marriage?

Yonghwa : Hmmm, this situation (talking) about marriage is what I’m worried about! But, work is fun (laughs). Music is my top priority for now, I don’t have thoughts about marriage……. But, I want to make a happy family! We’ll go to the supermarket as a family on Sunday.

 

Among the members, who do you think is the most likely to be a great husband?

All : (saying at the same time) of course that’s me!

Jonghyun : I like to make a  friendly-family the most.

Yonghwa : No no no, it’s me. I’ll protect my family! I love them! That’s me!

Minhyuk : I think it’s Yonghwa, it looks like he’ll certainly protect them (the family). But I think I’ll try to make a cherish family the most (laughs).

Jonghyun : Well, that’s it everyone!

 

Let’s leave it all to them (laughs). In Puzzle MV, the scene where Yonghwa-Minhyuk and Jonghyun-Jungshin exchanging glances is impressive.

Minhyuk : Well, I think you can watch it by yourself on the MV, we carefully staring at each other and it’s embarrassing (laughs). Or, like, when we were about going to avert our eyes/gazes, we came out to laugh so many times. But for me, Yonghwa is the one who wants to go around and see what happen to us (laughs).

Jonghyun : For me, it’s fun to look at Jungshin. Because he’s currently on shooting a drama so he focus to be really on act. That’s cool, good!

 

The MV scene was a reminiscent of the last December’s Budokan circular stage, right?

Jonghyun : Oh yeah, but it’s unusual when it comes to play it on an MV filming. But, I’ve been practicing it during the rehearsal. So, it became like usual for us. We can play it comfortably.

 

What do you think about the pieces that’s lacking on Puzzle?

Yonghwa : Of course, the music. It may be far from perfect, but the goal is to complete the “Puzzle” to anyone!

 

I also want to ask about the coupling song. Take Me Higher is made by Yonghwa, it’s close to the music impression during Japan debut, isn’t it?

Yonghwa : Yes. It’s also lead to our 5th Anniversary, we made it to remember where we begin. I think it has grown up a bit compared to the old days (songs), there are many dreams come true. But some is still longing/craving, like, there’s always a strong desire to exceed the great wall. Looking back to the past, while we make our vision to our own destination from now on.

 

And another one song, Jonghyun’s Be My Love, seems like a gentle-sweet love song, I wonder why the lyrics written in English? Also, what’s the essence that’s needed for a love song to Jonghyun?

Jonghyun : I was making a demo in English from time to time. This song may have more meaning by it’s words in Japanese, but because it’s better to sing it in your own words (in your preferred language) so it’ll be easier to control the emotions, feelings, and a delicate nuances, and I want to straightly convey the “poetic sentiment”. The essence…..when you make a love song you have to mash up the past, the reality, and the future in the delusion (laughs).

 

From May 22nd, SPRING LIVE 2016 We’re like a puzzle~』will start. Because the last Budokan concert in December was  great, we also expect the same for this time!

Yonghwa : I think it was a trance in Budokan, it’s me (laughs). It was really good and fun. I think the first important thing to do when doing live is to enjoy. But, the power of our fans can make us feel it also. We want to be ‘one’ with you all this time. It’s either made just like the other tour or what…..but there’s a hint to the latest “Puzzle” song (laughs).

[VIDEO/LINK] W0W0W CNBLUE ~Be a Supernova~ Arena Tour @Osaka-Jo Hall

CNBLUE finished their ~Be a Supernova~ Japan Arena Tour last year in some cities, and Osaka stop was recorded to be published as a DVD later on. One of Japan’s private satellite broadcasting TV station, W0W0W Japan, already broadcasted the Osaka’s stop of Be a Supernova tour on February 11th 2016. By this post, you can watch it directly by following the link below! (and thanks a lot to the uploader! ^^)

P.S : The concert which is broadcasted by a TV station mostly doesn’t broadcast the same like the one in DVD. The DVD version often have their backstage interview and some unseen cuts on it. Yet, the one that broadcasted in TV mostly only give the full live stage.

You  better watch or download it as fast as you can before the video (probably) will be removed in any time :p Enjoy Boices! ^^
