POPOLO 0708 - Arashi's Concert's 55 Secrets (Part 1 of 3)  
No idea if this has been done before.. Woke up early on a Sunday morning, and felt like doing it anyway. ^_^
Its long, so LJ cut!

++++++++++++
Matsumoto Jun

01 How was the concert's song list and order decided?

By repeatedly editing the original plan. Song wise it was "feel like singing this song" then we just wrote it down first. Or depends on the theme. And then, everyone did one song list and we slowly changed it during rehearsals accordingly.

02 When thinking of the concert's concept, what was the research?
Would look up on various concerts and stageplays.
When one interesting concert catches my eye, will feel inspired. Although it is subconscious, but when watching there will be a feeling, a thought "If Arashi was doing this what would be the effect?"

03 When was it that you took up the role of concert's coordinating leader?
Have no idea of exact timing, when I realised it I was already doing it.
I think it should right at the beginning. Before the actual concert, it was me who had the most things to clarify with everyone, maybe its that problem. So it became a fixed routine, and I became the coordinator.

04 Arashi's moving stage, was there any motivation?

That was due to everyone's brainstorming, who picked it I can't remember (laughs). It was in Osaka's Hall that we presented it, the audience reaction was superb! Really very happy ah.

05 Before each concert, what are some of the things you watch out for health wise?
I try not to consume cold beverages. When the concert ends, due to our large amount of sweating, will feel like drinking a bit. But other than that because drinking cold water is basically not good for the body, and don't want to add stress to the throat, so I won't drink it.

06 The birthday present that you received last concert how is it now?
Till now it has no appearance opportunity (laughs) The presents include pyjamas, a toy cat, red wine glass, cigar (laughs) But I have no use for them in my current life (laughs)

07 How are Arashi's concerts like? Please state some special points!
Only unique stuff that Arashi can do. Because each time is different so its hard to describe it in a sentence. In short it is "very Arashi style". When thinking about it everytime, will want to present a new side of ourselves to everyone, will want to do interesting things that has never been done before.

08 Towards this tour what do you want to say to fans?
Please just enjoy yourselves! It has always been like this, Arashi for the sake of presenting to everything whatever we can do, we devote our entire energy to the concert. Everyone please simply enjoy to the maximum, the first time experience is really good!

Current event report:
Bought a new computer. The one that I have been using is spoilt. But, there was hardly time to buy a new one. Recently, after a visit to the hardware store, finally bought a new one!

09 In the resting room, when would bathing times be?
Before concert and after concert will bathe twice.
Each venue would have bathing products ready, but each venue provides different types. "Today's bathing towel feels so harsh ah" this type, am quite looking forward to that.

10 In the tour how much weight would you lose?
None (laughs)
Each performance, would sweat alot at the same time burn alot of calories, but i eat alot to gain back the energy. Before concert, I must eat rice. Nattou and some dishes, mixed with rice I can then go on the show.

11 During concert, would you train for body strength?
In the rehearsals would do mild training for muscles. Will have to select suitable training depending on the body fitness that won't stress up the body too much.Last time did it to "Billy's Boot Camp", that was so exhausting. Doing training the muscles ached making it impossible to dance, so now its been locked up (laughs).

12 An accident in a concert that left the greatest impression?
Falling off the stage! During running and dancing will find a hole suddenly on the ground, often had to emergency break (laughs). That hole is of course designed for the concert's performance, I know. But when the tension is high in a performance, tend to forget everything. Must be careful (laughs).

13 Speed changing of clothes is it a challenge?
The tactic of changing pants must be there! Along the sides of the clothing there will be a long zip. To make removal of clothing easy, in the start will unzip it a little. But if unzipped too much, will see the clothing beneath, and will drop off doing the bigger movements. Recently I don't dare unzip it anymore (laughs).

14 In the concert when are the touching moments?
Alot ne. If have to point out specifically its hard, every opening sequence is moving. Looking at the full audience that moment, all the power comes out.

15 How are Arashi's concerts like? Please state some special points!
To let the audience feel we are just beside them that kind of performance. "Feel like getting closer to everyone!" "Feel like interacting with the audience more!" Arashi's concert thinks like that, and tries the best to make it work.

16 Towards this tour what do you want to say to fans?
Presenting to everyone the best concert ever!
Speaking of Dome, this time a few places would be the first time for us. Thinking of being able to see so many fans in the venues, am already feeling excited. Everyone please look forward to it!

Current event report:
Forming a baseball team!
During schooling times those who were backups. Because of 唐泽 kun we formed the team "COLORS". The theme is "唐泽 kun's youth ah, reappear again." The batter is of course him, I am in midfield.


Onegashimasu~ Will update Part 2 when I have time~ ^_^

AHA! That explains the intense amount of fanservice in this tour huh... *rubs chin*

Oh and yeah, Aiba-chan running about. SO CUTE! ♥ I'm actually surprised he hasn't fallen off the stage. Or at least if he ever did, it wasn't recorded unlike Sho's. LOL

But I had to really laugh out loud at this:
During running and dancing will find a hole suddenly on the ground, often had to emergency break (laughs).
Ohgod Aiba, don't ever ever EVAR change. Please don't.


Arashi will be the death of me. Hahaha! ♥
