Concert Review: BAND-MAID Perform Alongside Bed In and BiS in 3-Way Concert at TSUTAYA O-WEST on May 10

14.May.2018 | MUSIC

BAND-MAID teamed up with Bed In and BiS to perform their 3-way concert BAND-MAID Presents【Maid no Hi】Day 1 at TSUTAYA O-WEST on May 10, also known as “Maid Day.”


Tickets to the show sold out on the day they went on sale. The crowd was a diverse bunch of fans, with Masters and Princesses for BAND-MAID, Students for Bed In  and Researchers for BiS (those are what each bands call their fan base!) A unique sense of competition filled the air on the venue.


First on stage was BiS. They opened the rock party with their major debut track WHOLE LOTTA LOVE. This was followed by a set-list containing a range of slow and fast tracks, with pop tunes such as nerveand Romeo no Shinzou and aggressive rock numbers like SOCiALiSM and I can’t say NO!!!!!!!.


Following their set, bubbly sound effects began to resound through the room, signalling for Bed In to magnificently step onto stage alongside Part Time Lovers (the backing band). Their ‘gig’ as they call all their sets began with a rock song: ♂×♀×Poker Game. The combination of the bubbly noises and rock wrapped the crowd in the world of Bed In.


Last to grace the stage was none other than BAND-MAID, who changed the air in the room once more, this time into hard rock with the fast-paced rock number the non-fiction days. They finished their performance with DOMINATION, a song that echoes BAND-MAID‘s ultimate goal – world domination. Their vocalist, Kobato, normally doesn’t do encores, but this time they announced to the crowd they would be doing a special collaboration time with the other performers, which garnered screams of joy from the masters and princesses.


At the end of the night, BAND-MAID announced that they are to hold a 5-year anniversary event at Shibuya eggman in Tokyo. It will be a 3-day event where they will be joined by four-piece rock band ARUKARA.


The event was a memorable coming together of extraordinary bands and their fans. BAND-MAID served to up the excitement in the room even more.


BAND-MAID will continue taking over shows into summer. Be sure to keep up to date for the latest news.
