Hey everybody! I'm sharing with you a little review of the concert now.

A friend of mine and I arrived in Rome in the morning, met the other people, had a little tour, lunched in a japanese restaurant and went to the venue, Alpheus, around 19:00.
There we took some photos and listened to Ra:IN's soundcheck.
The concert was scheduled for 21:00, but the doors opened at 21:30. But the audience was very very low...

In the little place in front of the venue there were about 15 people waiting for the entrance, and considering there was already late, no one would have arrived anymore.

We understood that we were going to see a very close concert!!

We took our tickets and entered (note the print error, DJ MARIU is DJ MARU)


Around 22:30 the concert begun with the support band, Revolution.
They opened with hide's Pink Spider which was not bad at all. Then they went on with their own song and there we saw a pretty confused band, I pesronally didn't like them.
The worst thing they did was Luna Sea's Rosies that was a little embarassing... They finished and the main show was about to begin!

Before the beginnig I did a little shopping session...


I bought the new EP and the t-shirt in the black version

Godzilla's main theme was the opening music for Ra:IN show that began playing METAL BOX as introductive song. They made us understand they wasn't caring at all about the few people and they wanted to to their best as always.

EXTRA NOTE:
Before beginning with METAL BOX, DIE asked me how the footbal match (Italy-Egypt) ended. He was a bit disappointed whan I told him Italy lost, and we ended laughing!XD

Second song was from The Siren, Under The Technopolis and the setlist evolved through this album and METAL BOX. They also played the new songs contained in the EP, even if they played them very differently live.

Nothing from "The Line" unfortunately...



When the concert ended all of us attending was completely satisfied and happy!!

After some minutes the band announced the meet&greet! I managed to get Pata and Michiaki's autograph and I did a photo with Pata!! I lost the others because I was giving Pata the gifts we bought for them!

With the other guys of "X Japan Italian Fans Forum", we decided to give them some presents and Pata really appreciated them!
I'll let you see the videos as I get them!

Cool that you're going to Gdynia !

Btw, did you have the chance to meet the band after the show ? How many people were there ? Could you tell us a bit more about the show itself ?

Thanks :)

there was no problem with meet the band. They were just drinking in club with us XD.
I can give you setlist (I don't remember everything - was too exited), but I think that they played songs from all albums. There were  about 60-70 people attending the show.
And yesterday there was also autograph session and press conference. Gifts for band (vodka, cake and cat - yes, real cat XD).
And I must say Pata was rather shocked when I show him his firs solo album to sign  ;D

Aha - and support was sooo awful that I just escaped from club when they played  :-[

No, not "The Line" (I would like to). Pata's first solo. I'm sure Köln will be as great as all their concerts   ;)
