Follow Me? I'll follow you to hell, Kamenashi <3  

Me, making it on time to the concert venue was very giri giri. Leaving the venue to catch my last train was also giri giri. Heck, the whole night was giri giri.

KAT-TUN Kamenashi Kazuya: The 一 ~Follow me at Osaka July 17, 2017 @6pm

You know how much a superstar Kame is when as soon as you reach the entrance to the venue, it's like you're stepping on the red carpet… and if that’s not enough, you actually take a long-ass escalator to the concert hall.

escalator

How to put it?

The stage was simple but very sensual with the silk curtains and red. The concert started out with piano playing – so classy Kame. But then within that classic feel, there’s also the funk/punk Kame – I remember reading this interview once where the lady was saying, Kame looks the type you would cast in a 1950s boys love movie lol. Well yeah, I got where she was coming from~ especially after 1582! We'll get to that later *breathes*

Okay, let's just say, you don’t need to be a kame fan to appreciate and follow the concept. What you do need is an understanding of who Kame is... his personality and style, that is... that and.... a sense of appreciating perviness hehe – I mean, the man himself put ecchi as a possible option for Hyphens to call him XD

Okay, so back to the concert~ just think of all the ass rolls and hip rolls and crotch grabbing in the space of 2.5hrs.

You may have all seen the songlist by now so I won't add it here but, I am pretty sure, those are songs Kame fans listened to when they were just knowing Kame and what kept them into following him... so nostalgia was glistening everywhere. So, if you’ve been following Kame since the beginning, or at least for a while now then seeing him perform songs you fell in love with will make you want to cry.

Songs that now come to memory:

- Hanasanaide Ai; This was at the start when he had on a long jacket but he was really getting into the hip roll and ass roll and just when I was thinking he needed to get rid of the jacket so I could see his ass, he actually turned around - his ass facing the audience then lifted the jacket and started to grind lol LOVED IT!!!!

- Lost my way: The usual sexy with casket.
- Plastic Tears: Another song why I think Kame needs to do more rock-ish songs!
- Lips: I remember how often I had this song on replay when I was just getting into KAT-TUN!
- Bokura no Machi de: I am not a fan of this song per se, but it’s from Tatta Hitotsu no Koi and that's when I first discovered Kame and his amazing speaking voice and sexy butt so, this song holds good memories for me.
- Seishun Amigo: a bit nostalgic there! Themed song for the second drama I watched on my way to discovering Kame.

AND!!!!

- 1582: This song. This performance. I think on your way to the 'Kame discovery', this song is one that will always stay on your radar… even if not the song itself, I think it’s the performance that makes this song minutes of gold. When I just started out knowing this Kamenashi Kazuya, I must have watched this performance a hundred times and when I watch these days, the feeling of awe and excitement is still skies high---- so imagine actually seeing a full performance of this song?! The whole pretty kimono, the mask, the umbrella, the sexy movements AND the FLYING and his Acrobatic ROPE WORK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I honestly, felt a little tear at the corner of my eyes - and while I watched I mentally gave myself a pat for having another chance to see this performance again!

- Someday for somebody: Just when I was about to give up – thinking that he wouldn't sing this song (I couldn’t remember the full song list so I wasn’t sure whether he would've performed this). Man, it’s an awesome song… they showed bits of videos from the time he performed it on Shounen Club. So nostalgic.

- Vanilla Kiss (?): The opening video was so sensual; painting and kissing and seemingly some sex that had people screaming lol Yeah. The crowd died. Wait for the dvd guys!

So yeah, this is what I mean… it’s like you fall in love all over with why you love and treasure Kame… why he’s your ichiban… why you stick around with him… okay? Okay!

He had a live band for the second half – more rock-ish, they rearranged some songs for example; 'Birth' – and I actually preferred this fast paced version of 'Birth' than the original.

Also, a few times he kept reprimanding the front row for not looking excited enough--- as in they were paying attention but not screaming and raving mad like they were enjoying themselves so he asked if it’s because they are in front row… I think they were nervous or just memorised. I don’t think I could handle front row so I understand lol. I remember him saying the same thing on a tv programme that he'd be performing with all his might then he would look down in the crowd to see people looking at him unblinking with hands folded lol. It's ok, Kame. That's just folks trying to say alive but are failing and are dying inside XD

Speaking of front row, I was in row 16… it sounds far but with the way how the hall is shaped, I was rather close. The lady beside me had brought her binocular and when she used it, she was like “woah! Too close” lol so she put it back into her bag.

Oh yeah! this bit was funny... doki doki funny. So for dome tours you would expect artist to come down in the crowd but not halls. So everyone was freaking out when they saw the staff pushing the tiny stage to the centre… then everyone freaked out when Kame left the stage and walked through the crowd to get to the stage (I cringed at how people were freaking out and touching him!)... Anyways, guys, this was like 2 rows from me… but if he had taken 3 steps to the left, he would have been in front me… No. I wasn’t breathing at that point. I just kept waving the big ass LIPS penlight with my mouth open watching and still thinking, “Is this man for real?!!!! Don’t you dare come any closer to me!” Yeah. I know lol.

This is something I came to appreciate after attending some GACKT concerts, small venues are great! I think it was an intimate concert with kame and his fans. Oh, and wow~ the entire hall was full. I mean, I know Kame has lots of fans but I was still surprised as to how many people came out to meet him and show their support. Okay, back to being intimate. It was nice how people would shout things and because the place was compact, Kame would stay all the way on stage and still hear. People shouted “Kakkoii” lots of times. Also, sorry, I can’t remember which song, but he did part of it without a microphone and that was sooooo sweet!

Kinda Sorta Stray observations;

- No. Don’t ask me about MC. But he did say that normally the MC would be left up to Nakamaru so being alone he didn’t know what to talk about.

- Ueda and Nakamaru made the opening announcements. The entire hall was in high spirits at the start, during and after this.

- Ten no Koe did an interview survey to see how well known Kame is in Osaka. Conclusion: he's known face-wise or his association on GoSpo. But to be fair, we only saw 3 people being asked ><"

- He forgot the lyrics to Tsuki No Michi for the encore which was funny because he started out so well and dreamy lying in a half moon swinging from the ceiling then bam! He forgets the lyrics and starts laughing then apologised lol.

- He did a bit of dream boys – just that opening act. Man, I remember how obsessed I was with that body of Kame in that boxing outfit... so to see it live was showers of blessing.

- Kame did some really good acrobatics with the ropes. But I just kept imagining how even better they will be once he gets more accustomed to the tour and doing them over and over. He’ll be so frigging gorgeous and all the more hyped and I really doubt 1582 can get any better than how it's already great BUT, it’s a sight I would love to see.

- He did a sorta pole dance lol Sorry. I can’t remember to what song, but it was with him climbing a pole that looked like a swing and wrapping his body around it --- speaking of wrapping, the way he wrapped his legs around the curtains in 1582 was so sexy… Gosh! I’ll be 80 and still replaying that scene in my head lol

- They also allowed fans to sing along with Kame for ‘Sayonara Arigato’

- I was surprised with how much people were into the dancing for 'Senaka-goshi no Chance'. Like they had the moves down perfect… actually, why was I even surprised?! It’s Japan. They love things like that. I just stood there watching Kame being cute XD

- He sang ‘Kizuna’ after mentioning KAT-TUN. *awwww*

- As I said up top, leaving the venue to catch my last train was very giri giri but I think I still managed to have seen all the songs and the confetti popping and falling from the roof – at that point I just dashed out so I didn’t see his final bow and curtain close but I just need to say that even though, it was Kame’s solo concert, the full tour name is KAT-TUN Kamenashi Kazuya Follow – Me~ and that says a lot… him including KAT-TUN and even using the ‘‘ to represent Hyphens (in the ending credit roll), guys, Kame loves KAT-TUN, so how can we not love him and them more?!

Once there's KAT-TUN, then anywhere they go, I'll Follow them!

ps. I'm pretty sure there are tons of typos. Sorry. Iet me know where you spot them and I'll fix them later. Thx!

OMG finally an English repo I can completely understand!! lol
So many things to look forward to. I honestly feel like he really went wild with this con, things he couldn't do during a KT con he did. I cannot wait *-*
kissmegreen (Lyan)kissmegreen on July 22nd, 2017 11:57 am (UTC)
IKR. Almost no one shares or does anything in fandom again... slow death *cries*
So all the more, I am glad if this incoherent report could offer some visual sorta... though soon you'll witness it yourself XD
roro_ieda: kameroro_ieda on July 18th, 2017 02:59 pm (UTC)
this is wild! as expected from kame! hahahaha.

THANK YOU SO MUCHHHH FOR ENGLISH FANREPO!!!

btw, i cant help to LAUGHING OUT LOUD (yes, i am) when reading about ten no koi interviewed literally only 3 people. XDD

i'm glad you could catch your train~ well, 'giri giri' is our life motto. XDD

thank you once again!
kissmegreen (Lyan)kissmegreen on July 22nd, 2017 12:00 pm (UTC)
giri giri is our motto indeed!
It feels great knowing Ten no Koe still supports KT on their solo ventures XD
To be fair though, he did have a good 2 or so mins with each person but I guess that's still 3 people lol.

I wish fandom was active like times gone by with reports flying everywhere you had to be hiding from spoilers ><"
chii: kerorotakachie on July 18th, 2017 03:07 pm (UTC)
Ok I dunno what to say... gdi I wish I can watch kame live!!!!!!
Aarrgghhh.... I wanna see that sexy pervy funny kamenashi but here I'm drooling over his papapics.... I envy you girl, honestly 😭

And I get the picture now... how fans in the first row dying hahahahaa.... how come you survive after those overdoses of prettynashi 😂
kissmegreen (Lyan)kissmegreen on July 22nd, 2017 12:02 pm (UTC)
It would be a shame for them not to release a DVD of this! But then again, they still haven't released one of Ueda's Mouse Peace but... let's still hope - JE is slowly changing. I definitely want to have these performances saved on a disc!
powwiepowwie on July 18th, 2017 08:18 pm (UTC)
kyaaaaaaaah!

I can't add any intelligent comment. And I haven't seen the man (yet).

Trying to avoid spoilers would have been impossible (safe for living like a monk for 3 months) so I just got into it. I was really really hoping he would include 1582 in his performance. That's the first thing I wanted to know. Because I fell in love with kame the moment I saw a clip of that solo performance. So, to watch it live... New fans would cry and so would old fans. LOL

And yeah, small venues are a nightmare ticketwise but for the performance... pure heaven. And I know the feeling of having your ichiban a few meters from you (and how hard is to keep dancing... i mean, he's just there but he manages to steal your breath away and make you feel so self-conscious! LOL).
Ah yes, you need to watch it/him more than once.
We're lucky <3
kissmegreen (Lyan)kissmegreen on July 22nd, 2017 12:06 pm (UTC)
Oh man, I kept wishing I could watch it with you and Cris! It would've been even more epic. I'm very tempted to fork out some extra cash and make this happen somehow.

Yeah, I keep replaying 1582 in my head and each time I just have this stupid grin on my face. Just thinking about how even more perfected this performance will be later in the tour?! I'm just shivering thinking about it.

Why we so lucky?!!!!??!!!
sanneloveskt: Black White Kamesanneloveskt on July 18th, 2017 08:20 pm (UTC)
Unffff..What a party !!
He made an unbelievable concept come true.
Who cares? He his Kamenashi Kazuya.
I´m very happy you had the chance to see him live.
And very glad you survive the con healthy.

~Sanne
kissmegreen (Lyan)kissmegreen on July 22nd, 2017 12:08 pm (UTC)
He really his Kamenashi Kazuya and all you have ever wanted lol He always reminds me why I chose him <3
I really hope there will be a DVD. To not have one would be a shame! An injustice.

and yes. I'm still live... though still melting each time I remember moments from this con ><"
crism79: KAT-TUN Kame modern 1582crism79 on July 18th, 2017 10:53 pm (UTC)
I LOVE reading your con reports! I always laugh and squee along while reading ^^

I sort of lack any coherent or smart comment except: aaahhhhhhhhhhh Kame!! And thank you for writing this report!!!!

Lol, I mean... All the songs and adding your report to the pics that have been floating around... It all just looks even more fantastic!

I mean 1582!! I think from all the songs this one I was wondering if he'd perform it once again. This song, the original performance that I watched back when I was just starting on my Kamenahsi/KAT-TUN road was probably the final push into the Kame vortex lolol - not that I needed much more because I was already sold on him by his voice in the opening of Tatta, lol not to mention the jeans ;P

I'm so so excited!! So happy you had a fantastic time and for that awesome seat! Who can remember how to breathe with Kame so close? It's a symptom of the Kame!effect lolol

"Follow me", indeed Kame we do, no need to ask :D
kissmegreen (Lyan)kissmegreen on July 22nd, 2017 12:12 pm (UTC)
Gosh, I just replied to Powwie, that I kept wishing us three were watching together and how tempted I am to make this happen!

1582 - it's going to be great. I think I want an entire concert of watching him performing that on repeat ~ though i suppose that wouldn't be a concert lol

I'm still incoherent and fuzzy and in a few days I'll have this experience again! Will I survive a second time?
Eien no Kazuya: pic#126980683siennaphan on July 19th, 2017 09:42 am (UTC)
I think Kame is more handsome in this con than in 10ks....

😍

I have to pull myself because he is sooooo Kawaiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii...

kissmegreen (Lyan)kissmegreen on July 22nd, 2017 12:13 pm (UTC)
Gosh. I think every time I see the man he looks more impossibly handsome or cute or a mix of both lol

And that's why we love him <3
Hikari Kiramekudaftdragon on July 21st, 2017 04:12 am (UTC)
Thanks for the con report! I'm actually not expecting them to release a DVD for this, since it's a solo concert, so I'm making due with all the reports and fan recordings. It still pisses me off we don't have official releases for Lost my Way and Bad Dream because I adore those songs. Was so happy when one of the fanrecordings was in decent quality for me to hear! I haven't finished it, but I plan to listen to the entire thing when I have time (and don't need to use headphones). I could tell Kame had to be doing some pervy things at points cause of all the screaming. XD
kissmegreen (Lyan)kissmegreen on July 22nd, 2017 12:18 pm (UTC)
Considering they didn't release a DVD for Mouse Peace, I'm still hoping JE's recent slow change into adapting to technology means they'll possibly release a DVD for this concert... also too since it's fully Kame's concert and not like a butai with other actors.

Lost My Way and Bad Dream are beautiful pieces. Kame's and Ueda's songs need to be released in HD. It's a waste to not have them.
fazlyn_nfazlyn_n on July 22nd, 2017 01:29 am (UTC)

Thank you so much for sharing this with us, bring us on the journey. When i was reading through it, checking which song he sang, wondering whether he covered Someday for Somebody...and he did...


I fall in love with Kame over that song, watching the performance in 2007 Cartoon KAT-TUN II in you tube. Back then i dont even know that hes in a famous boy band. I just know that he acted in the Jdrama (seishun amigo) that i have just finished.


He oozes sexyness makes my jaw drop. He was so fluid and graceful, i was mesmerized a guy able to do that. That was the point i was turn into Kame-stan.


Your detail story brought me that nostalgic feeling, the feeling of falling in love and enchanted at the same time. I cant imagine what will happen to me if he was that close as you describe. Starring with glassy wetted eyes maybe. Hahaha.


And thank you for pointing out the KAT-TUN inclusion to the tour, reminding all of us why we love this guy so much.

kissmegreen (Lyan)kissmegreen on July 22nd, 2017 12:23 pm (UTC)
Did I mention how happy I am seeing you on here again?!

Well I am XD

Yeah, his concert concept is really a journey. The songs and performances well up all sorts of emotions - emotions that all feel good and sexy and reminds us why we love this guy and how much he's impossibly cute and special and capable!

I am not so much in ballads but 'Someday for Somebody' is definitely special... that performance was colourful and the melody so sweet~ awwww I'm glad for that day I accidentally found this guy ;)
hongo_bharahongo_bhara on July 30th, 2017 12:24 pm (UTC)
I got excited just reading your fanrepo and imagining it *kyaa
I really need to watch that ero opening video. Kame upgrades his ero level in his solo con lol.
Thanks for writing it!
kissmegreen (Lyan)kissmegreen on August 7th, 2017 03:20 pm (UTC)
No problem. I'm glad Kame's ero energy reached you lol
