Japan’s largest music specialized channel, “Space Shower TV’s”premium live program, “SPACE SHOWER TV “LIVE with YOU” did a TV show recording of Kyary Pamyu Pamyu’s Februray 19th (Mon.) live at Ebisu LIQUIDROOM.
The floor of the venue was filled to capacity with an invited in advanced audience. The audience was made up of people of all types and all ages from adults to children who had come with their parents. Some hard-core fans came wearing Kyary’s cosplay. The great variety of the audience make up was proof of the fact that Kyary is a national idol.
Kyary tweeted on the day of the live, “I really hope you will hop about at my live today!”Just before the live began there was an unusual announcemet, “We hope you will jump around and really enjoy yourselves!”
Kyary’s usual lives come with an elaborate stage set and fancy and unique clothing, all which draw her audience into her special world. However, for this live the only decoration on stage was a flag which had the words, “Kyary Pamyu Pamyu.”
For the opening set Kyary’s familiar dancers made their appearance. Kyary then appeared in front of a silver mic stand wearing a simple red one piece dress and with a ponytail. She first did a high-powered performance of her 2 songs, “Fashion Monster”and “Invader Invader.”The smooth dancing and the rapid succession of her songs set the floor on fire.
During the first MC announcement it was revealed that this was Kyary’s first live performance at LIQUIDROOM. Being a live house, it was first suggested that she should come wearing just a T-shirt and shorts. However, this was rejected and in the end she appeared in her private one piece dress.
Kyary commented after her first songs, “I’ve never performed so close to my audience in a live house like this, so let’s become one and really enjoy ourselves!”and then she sailed into her all popular songs, “Ninjari Ban Ban” and “Mondai Girl.”Next, after commenting, “This is a live house, so I’ll sing this old song of mine!”she began to sing “Serious Hitomi,”a song on her album and a song very popular among her fans. The climax of her first set was “Kira Kira Killer” and then into her next set she performed “CANDY CANDY” and “Tsukema Tsukeru.” She kept the heat on and left no time for the audience floor cool down.
In her second set MCing she asked the audience the question, “Did you catch it? I started do my movements for “Nyanko Star” in the middle of my performance of “Tsukema Tsukeru.”According to Kyary, the dance steps for “Tsukema Tsukeru”are so difficult that at times she changes her movements to the movements for a “dojo sukui”(traditional dance called, “scooping loaches”). Then at one live performance she happened to do the movements for the “Angola Soncho” in the song “Nyanko Star.”
“I went with the flow for a while!”she explained, to which the audience had a big laugh.
After a short choreography lesson, Kyary performed “Sai & Ko”and “Harajuku Iyahoi”to finish up her last set. For her encore she performed her early song, “PON PON PON” and then she finished her live with her glittering and dreamy and Kyaryish song, “Mottainai to land.”
In this live, Kyary’s staging and clothing was very simple so the audience was able to enjoy Kyary’s performance and MCing from a very close range. She is not only “Kawaii”(cute) and extraordinary but she proved herself to be a excellent entertainer. This was a live performance where the audience experienced the charms of Kyary Pamyu Pamyu through body and soul.
This live performance can be aired on Space Shower TV on March 31 (Sat.) 21:30. Mark this date and be sure not to miss it.
