One of many wonderful things in life that just happened to me was L'Arc~en~Ciel World Tour (to celebrate their 20 years together!) on May 2nd in Jakarta. Jess and I still can't believe we were finally able to see their live performance! We've been fans for years since junior high school!! :'))
Anyway, this is the outfit I wore for the concert (trying to be as comfy as possible)!

|This is when Hyde (vocalist) said, "Halo Jakarta" and then blew three flying kisses to the audience! *FAINT*|
|If looks could kill... (he is 40 something for God's sake!)|
|Tetsuya (bassist) - One of his memorable acts was when he asked the audience, "Kamu mau pisang aku? Atau kamu mau jilat lolipop aku" and then started to throw bunch of real bananas and lollipops! lol.|
|Ken (guitarist) - He is surprisingly very funny and goofy! We were surprised because he always looked so cool in Laruku's music and concert videos! You can watch his witty performance here.|

A message for fans, regarding their performance at the Madison Square Garden (Laruku is the first Japanese band to headline the legendary venue):
"This is huge for our band to perform at the world-famous Madison Square Garden, so I want to make sure we give you the very best show for the American audience. ... I want to take the very best of everything we've done in Japan and put it in this show," Hyde said. "It's so hard for a Japanese act to be successful in America, but we were given this opportunity, so that means there is a possibility for us to break in the American market. I definitely feel lucky to be here after 20 years as a band."
"When we first started, I was just happy to be able to eat. Our goal back then was to be #1 in Osaka so that people in Tokyo could hear about us."
