I have loved L’Arc~en~Ciel with all the passion and admiration for over 10 years now (next year will be my 11th anniversary of loving this amazing band). 10 years have passed without a single thread of hope to ever seeing them live in front of my eyes. All I can do is listening to them through CD and DVD for over than 3650 days …but now, heading to 11 years, I see hope and feel a fresh wind blowing toward us, Cielers Indonesia, that they might come.
I forgot the exact time, probably a month ago, Oishi Masahiro (大石征裕) – Music producer and engineer representative Shi_Gurupu Maverick Dee. Chairman, General Federation of Japan Music production (音楽プロデューサー・エンジニア兼マーヴェリック・ディー・シー･グループ代表。一般社団法人 日本音楽制作者連盟 理事長。) – In short, Laruku’s manager – came to Jakarta. I was wondering whether he had good news or bad news.
Then, to my utter delight, this announcement showed up:
followed by this
I was ecstatic!! Jakarta was in their list!! Finally, they noticed us
And to add up my happiness, they gave 2 nights for Jakarta…yayyy \(^^)/ …and today, I find out it has turned into 3 nights
Now…here’s the point of my post and the reason why I think they might come to Indonesia one day
The date for Live Viewing was November 26 and December 3, the ticket box was supposed to be open on November 19. I was so ready to queue up from morning. But something technical had happened, 21cineplex postponed the date to further information
The suddenly announced that the ticket box was opened on November 23…which was on Wednesday, how was I going to queue up? I had school to teach. I know how CRAZY Indonesian Cielers (fans of L’Arc~en~Ciel). Even though it was only a live viewing in cinema but NEVER underestimate the power of love of Indonesian Cielers. I really really didn’t want to miss this historical moment, therefore I asked a certain L’Arc~en~Ciel fan community to buy it for me.
Here comes the fun and excitement!!
Tiket ‘L’Arc-En-Ciel Concert Movie’ mulai dijual hari ini, Rabu (23/11/2011) di XXI Epicentrum, Jakarta Selatan. Dalam 8 jam, tiket film konser berdurasi 2 jam itu nyaris terjual habis
Translation: The ticket for ‘L’Arc-En-Ciel Concert Movie’ is on sale today, Wednesday 11/23/2011 at Epicentrum, South Jakarta. Within 8 hours, the ticket for that 2 hours show is almost sold out
A friend told me that the ticket for Dec-3 was sold out within 3 hours and people were buying the ticket for Dec-10. By the time the news was published, there were only 25 seats left. The next morning, I heard that it was all sold out
There was an interesting story from my friend; 21cineplex only allowed one person to buy 10 tickets on the spot. My friend bought 6 ticket, but there was a person who wanted to buy 20 tickets…that person then asked everyone to help him buying the other 10 tickets he needed.
Many fans who didn’t have chance to queue up felt so disappointed and someone must have said it to Live Viewing Japan (the one who handles this event) and this is what I saw just now:
They are adding a new show fro Dec-11
…and that makes Indonesia receives a total of 3 shows.
I hope L’Arc~en~Ciel can see our excitement and aware of the love we have for them
Please…please…please come in 2012, インドネシア に 来て下さい…お願いします (^^)/
What exactly are we going to see?
This might sound funny to you who have never love a band as much as I do, the show of the live viewing event is the concert I have downloaded and watched over 10 times. I have reviewed it here on October. The show is from their 20th L’Anniversary concert in Ajinomoto. A 17 inches computer screen is no match for the screen in a cinema that has 500seats
I am expecting to see the craziness of all the cielers…let’s sing and dance together guys!!! Let’s bring them here, Minna!!!
