Tomo-chan was dressed as the Macross 7 character, Mylene Jenius, for the start of the concert. Before Selection 4, Tomo-chan picked up the pink and white bass guitar, as from the anime series. She gave a guitar solo, then accompanied by the band. She then played the bass guitar at parts of "Shaopairon" The microphone was even the same as from Macross 7. Being a fan of Sakurai-san originally from Macross 7, it was great to see a live representation of Mylene Jenius on stage.

Selections 10 through 15 are a dance medley. The medley closes with an nice high-energy instrumental version of "Taiyou o Agetai" with a guitar improvisation throughout.

During Selection 18, Tomo-chan introduced the band members, chorus and dancers. Each introduction was followed by a brief solo variation of the theme.

Before Selection 22, the curtain started to fall, and Tomo-chan stopped it and introduced the final encore.

This concert was featured in the Stage photobook.
