  • Event report version 0.7 by Hitoshi Doi, 2000.07.10

Last night was the final concert of the Uki Uki Tour (Inoue Kikuko's concert tour of summer 2000). The tour started on 6/18 in Yokohama, and there were concerts in Nagoya (7/1), Osaka (7/2), and Tokyo (7/9). The Yokohama, Nagoya, and Osaka concerts were basically the same. The Tokyo one was the "Deluxe" version, and had extras, like a bigger stage, dancers, chorus, etc. But the Tokyo concert cost 5800 yen, while the others cost 4500 yen.

I just went to the Yokohama and Tokyo ones.

They had six video cameras in the Tokyo concert, and they will release a CD and DVD of this concert. But Kikuko talked at LOT at the Tokyo concert, kept going off on tangents, so it was a three hour concert. I wonder if they will keep everything, or if it will be heavily edited.

The concert was broken up into three parts. The first part was made up of songs from Kikuko's latest CD Tanoshiikoto. The second part was made up of Kikuko's wishes (things she wanted to do at a concert). The third part was half talk (about anime/game voices she has done, and those she will do in upcoming games) and half songs.

I don't remember all the songs in the first part..

The second part had three wishes. The first wish was to sing a medley of anime songs. (^_^; Kikuko sang Candy Candy, Doraemon, Lum no Love Song, Dr. Slump, Anpan-man, Cutey Honey. The second wish was to sing the Mori no Kuma-san song (a children's song) with everyone in the crowd. The third wish was to sing and dance 17 Sai wearing the same outfit as Moritaka Chisato. (^_^!)

In the third part, Kikuko sang Anata no Tame ni Dekiru Koto. After that she talked a lot about her past anime/game roles. Then Kikuko sang a medley of character songs, Kaji no Uta (Tendou Kasumi/Ranma 1/2), Let's Go Electra-san (Electra/Fushigi no Umi no Nadia), Fuchuu Shigure (Saginomiya Sakura/Aozora Shoujotai), and Megami no Kimochi (Belldandy/Aa Megami-sama). The last song was Ganbatte Makenaide.

[I have forgotten the other songs..]

Some random comments..

  • Get rid of the tambourines!
    About 90% of the crowd had tambourines, and it was LOUD during most of the songs. Only for the slow songs did everyone sit quiet and listen. Since the tambourines were so loud, it was hard to hear Kikuko sing. I don't mind people clapping and yelling. I want claps and yells to fast songs. (^_^;) But the tambourines are way too loud.

  • At the Tokyo concert, many of Kikuko's seiyuu friends were in the crowd. They were just 4 rows in front of us. (^_^; I saw (and recognized) Yamamoto Maria, Hisakawa Aya, Ogata Megumi, Takahashi Miki. There were some more in the "guest" row, but I didn't recognize them.
