Thanksgiving Live in Tokyo Dome – [20100612] ~

i travelled all the way from Lyon (France) to Tokyo (Japan) with my sister just to see them… and when we arrived to the hotel on june 11th, we didnt know at all what to expect…my ticket for the concert was supposed to be waiting there for me, but in my mind, i was full of insecurities, i was thinking “what will i do if they didnt receive it?”…and to my surprise, not only they received it, but in the enveloppe, there was actually two tickets…without knowing it, the auction was actually for two tickets, so my sister could go to the concert with me…she was sooooo happy about it…

after leaving our luggages to the hotel, we walked right away to the Tokyo Dome…it was the very first time for us, so we needed to know if it was easy to find…and indeed, our hotel was really close, closer than expected…once there, we just couldnt leave the place, we kept hanging around, walking around the dome, checking the map to see where would be our gate…even having lunch and dinner there…if we could have slept there, we would have done it…lolz…

it was still pretty calm compared to what it would be the two following days…not so many people around yet, but still there was few fans hanging around, just like us…i heard two of them speaking english…

also, workers were speeding up around, preparing the goods stands in order to get everything ready for the day after…i thought maybe i could try my luck and buy my goods that night, so i wouldnt have to wait tomorrow…lolz…but i didnt dare to ask…

People working at night to get the stands ready for the morning after…

neway, so the day after, we woke up around 5am to make sure we’ll be early to buy goodies…but when we arrived to Tokyo Dome city, there was already a long queue waiting for the opening…thanksfully, later there was even more people behind us (as some pictures showed, the queue was until the entry of Tokyo Dome city…it was truly impressing…very very very long to wait under the warm sun (then i’d rather be at my place, than theirs)…personally, it was the very first time i saw such a long queue…

Some of the goods i bought that day…i bought some more after the concert…

after buying the goods, i didnt know if i should bring back the shopping bag to the hotel or not…first i brought it back to the hotel, but then i realized everyone in Tokyo Dome city was hanging around with their bag…so i went back to the hotel to get mine…truly this thanksgiving live bag was the new fashion in Tokyo Dome city (and all around the area) for those two days…lolz…you could go everywhere, starbucks, mcdo, everyone was holding their bag…

New bag fashion

waiting in front of gate 22 (i hid someone’s face…i dont know her, but not sure she wants to to see herself online  )

the huge crowd was impressing…it was difficult to make our way till the Dome…everyone was waiting anxiously for the moment we could finally go inside…and it was soooo hot, i had to take out my Jae towel to put it on my head lolz…neway, after a long wait, they finally opened the doors…and before entering, they looked inside our bag, asking if we had camera…i pretended i didnt understand well, i said no…even though my camera was obvious in my bag…lolz…but the guy just smiled when i said “no”, he didnt say anything…once inside, they gave us programs (i think…i didnt dare to open it yet..).

then we looked for our seats…which we found pretty easily indeed…not so many people were inside yet…so i guess it helped…lolz…i feel we were not so badly placed…and to be honest, as long as i was there, it could have been anywhere in the Dome, i would have been happy lolz…neway, from the moment i sat in this huge place, the dream continued, my heart started beating very fast, anticipating what would happen next when they’d finally enter onstage…and despite those messages on the board saying that taking pictures, recording voice or videos are strictly forbidden, i took a picture of the Dome…very uncomfortable to do so…too worried to be caught indeed…

the stadium started crowding slowly…my heart was beating so fast, being so content to be there, it was such a blissful feeling…then suddenly, the lights went off and the red ocean took over the Dome, invading it totally when Junsu appeared on the screen and started his speech…followed by Jae and Yoochun…it was the very first images from the concert and i was on cloud nine already, even though i couldnt understand their words (but i kinda knew what they were saying thanks to the Osaka fanaccounts i have read in the thread before leaving)…all the fans were listening their words religiously…then finally, after waiting for so many months, Jaejoong’s singing voice started echoing first in the dome and my heart was about to burst of happiness…and from this moment, i was literally flying or swimming into an ocean of bliss till the end of the concert…there was a lot of joy and few tears that day…
neway, i wont write a detailed summary of the concert, because i wouldnt be able to do so…not only i cant understand japanese…sadly… but i was really too mesmerized by it to even take notes about it lolz…so i’ll just talk randomly about few moments…first i want to say how amazing artists they are…they are unique, when they start singing, their voice takes you into their world full of emotions…when they’re joking around, the red ocean is laughing like crazy and play around with them…when they’re dancing, the crowd is dancing, clapping their hands and jumping with them…they literally embrace everyone and everyone follows…
also, i was very very happy because Jaejoong’s maze and Junsu’s xiahtic were performed in the stage in front of me…and believe me the atmosphere was hot and catchy then…call me bias, but this “maze” was one of the greatest moment of the night…the fancams really dont give it justice…it was way way better than that…the lights flashing everywhere, the music, Jaejoong’s energy, it was simply a breathtaking performance…

when Yoochun came onstage to sing “my girlfriend”, everyone was holding their breath, hoping to be picked to come onstage with him…i was surrounded by Yoochun’s fans…lolz…so they were particularly excited at this moment…i even got a kick in the back lolz…but where we were placed, we had no chance (it would have been too difficult to go on the stage from there)…a young girl was picked (my sis said she was wearing a mickey mouse tee…i didnt see well though…lolz…but on 13th, we saw bunch of girls wearing mickey mouse tees or ears…everyone understood it was the best way to be picked…)…the young girl was very emotional during the whole performance, i think she cried…and everyone around was very envious lolz…lucky girl…too bad Junsu and Jaejoong didnt do the same…lolz
i also loved the way Jaejoong and Yoochun ended “colors”, it was so hilarious…actually, they would have never ended it and would have kept repeating the last sentences, waving at each other, if Junsu didnt appear onstage, probably asking them to stop this lolz…
near the end, they performed the new song “be ok”…just before it, Jaejoong started explaining us the choregraphy…at first, i thought we were supposed to say a very long sentence in japanese (the kind i would never remember lolz), but thanks God, he was teaching us the choregraphy…and while they were singing the song, it was finally not so difficult to follow the choregraphy…but my red stick almost died during this song…it had hard time surviving the clapping in the hands…lolz…while performing this song, they turned around the dome in those mobile stages (i dont know how to call this…), throwing signed balls at the crowd…sadly i couldnt get any, as i was probably too far away from them…but neway, it was a great and catchy moment…
Also, there was a lot of talk…some very emotional in the beginning and in the end…some very hilarious, the way they played around with each other, teasing each other (particularly the dramas parts…even for me who cant understand japanese, i could feel the humor and understand what they were talking about…and so i was laughing hard with everyone…).
we also laughed a lot when they showed those videos…like the rehearsal for thanksgiving live or the 3hree voices DVD…Jaejoong in the canadian snow…Junsu in the australian ocean…ah i cant wait to get my copy of this DVD…

Intoxication was part of the “encore”…and we could feel the song was very expected by the fans…everyone kept screaming for every sexy moves or lyrics…it was an awesome performance…just too bad (for me), it was on the central stage, too far away from me…besides, i felt the dancing part with Jaejoong and Yoochun was too short…lolz…i wanted moooore…but its Junsu’s song after all…
then we finished with their speech and “W”…the speech was full of emotions…one of the girls seating near me started crying hard…but during this emotional moment, while Junsu was speaking, a girl in the crowd screamed a looooooong “Juuuuuunsuuuuu” (or was it Yoooooochuuuuun…i am not so sure anymore), but Junsu looked in her way and imitated her somehow…lolz…it was the funny part then…and i have to say, i absolutely love the song “W”, it was such an emotional moment when they sing it…we were all holding our breath, overwhelmed by emotions…and when they left stage, i shed some tears also…how i wish it could have lasted longer…how i wish it could have lasted forever…
it was a wonderful night…something i’ll never forget in my whole life…those memories will remain engraved in my heart and mind forever…for me, it was the very first time i could see them performing live, so i really enjoyed it the fullest…but even so, in the end, i was sad…wondering how i would make sure to not forget one second of this live…i wished i could see them once more the day after…i wanted more, i just couldnt get enough of them, but it was not possible…so now i am back home, i’ll start saving money because i want to be part of the red ocean again…and this, as soon as possible…because really i want to let them know “i have nothing if i dont have you”…

Few more shortcut fancams…somehow, i didnt dare to record too much because of the warning at the beginning of the concert…and because i was uncomfortable to do so (and it was the very first time i used this camera), the quality is bad…but neway…

After the concert, i bought again Junsu’s CD, as they said we would get a special gift (i didnt pre-ordered again the 3hree-voices DVD though)…they actually gave us a card…

Not to mention…but even if i didnt have any tickets for day 2, i still went to Tokyo Dome city that day…i just couldnt stay away from it, knowing they were so close…
now i really hope they’ll release soon a DVD of the concert…its a must…
