Just returned from the performance.

It was wonderful. An unforgettable experience.

Nobuo-San was present. Arnie Roth was the conductor. Orchestra was local.

There was this fan who kept shouting "Uematsu-Sensei" from the second level of the concert hall.

Arnie tried to escape after the last song was played. We needed to "encore" twice to get him back each time.

And he tried again when we were shouting for One Winged Angel.

Nobuo-San joined the choir during One Winged Angel. Apparently he was using his slippers to clap to the beat during the whole song.

I'll upload pictures as soon as I get them from my friend.

Before I upload any pics, I'll post these 2 vids of someone who 'ahem' recorded during the last parts of the entire performance.

These 2 vids are the apparent surprises that were in store for us. Note that the songs were not listed on the programme at all.

This was the song that Sephy, I mean, Arnie Roth tried to throw the crowd off when we shouted for One Winged Angel. I was quite surprised too.



After that, he tried to walk away again. Nobuo-San and Arnie came back on stage. Nobuo-San said he wanted to sing SOLO. Lol

He tried with his squeaky voice, and said "I can't do solos".

Haha, Arnie got no choice but to... This was when Nobuo-San joined the choir at the back with his pair of slippers in his hands.



Listen and try to imagine being part of the crazy audience. I LOVE the damn bass.

Was a wonderful show.

Ew Dallas. Not worth a 5+ hr drive just for that. /South of Houston




As much as I like OWA, I feel the song is way too overplayed ._. Its starting to lose its novelty to me.

True.

However, hearing it up front for the first time was a nice experience. Perhaps next time round maybe say, Jenova? There was vote for it held before OWA was played. They wanted to do 2 new battle song renditions.

Anyhow, hope they come back.
