This is going to be the last post on my L’Arc~en~Ciel Week
The after effect is scary…right now, even after 6 days, I still feel like the concert is still playing in front of my eyes. I am like a girl who finally met her long lost boyfriend but the meeting was only for 2 hours and now he left her again…
The longing to see them again is painful…can’t wait to see them again here
At first I wanted to write it in both English and Indonesian…but I don’t have much time to do it…so I chose to write it in English.
Here are my review/report of the concert I have been waiting for for over 11 years:
I am SOOOO happy that this high expectation of mine was totally paid off. They DID NOT disappointed me at all. Thank you L’Arc~en~Ciel for being a part of my life and for creating beautiful rainbow to fill my daily life.
I and lots of Indonesian cielers feel the same as I am, it is so hard to move on…we feel like part of our mind and soul are still there at Senayan … singing and dancing along with Hyde, Tetsuya, Yuki and Ken. You might think that it’s so stupid and silly but that is exactly how I feel. The memory of May 2nd implanted so deep in my heart that walking away from it feels like a burden.
…but, I know life must go on and that’s why this post is written
This amazing ride started on November 26th, 2011 when Live Viewing Japan chose us to be one of few countries to play 20th L’Anniversary concert…at that time I wrote it as One Step Closer to a 10 Year Dream. Then on January 2012…It came true!!! They announced Jakarta as one of their destinations during World Tour 2012…for the first time in my life, I believe in that famous sentence: Dreams Do Come True
What followed afterward were series of posts under the tag of LarukuJKT (we use it as a hashtag in twitter), here are the posts: Read more of this post
You have come a long way
Everything is for today
(The dream for you is now sparkling before your eyes
It’s blessed by snow falling like petals)
By the time I posted this, the concert is only … hours away
I am crazy with anticipation. I can’t even say much here!! I am lost for words…all I want to do is dream about tomorrow…the day where I can finally admit that DREAMS DO COME TRUE.
Today we changed our ticket voucher into real ticket…my friends and I were super excited.
Here’s the situation on Raja Karcis, where we changed our voucher with real ticket:
We opened it straight away
Because I have VIP Package, I received one towel and one ID card that I can keep forever…and of course a place to stand so damn close to the stage Read more of this post

Akhirnya…Sabtu pun tiba, saat postingan ini diterbitkan waktu menunjukkan 4 hari 20 jam menjelang konser yang paling gw tunggu2 selama 11 tahun.
Mulai hari ini sampai sabtu depan gw akan menulis HANYA tentang L’Arc~en~Ciel dan dalam 2 bahasa (kecuali tulisan 5 alasan kenapa gw ngefans gila sama Larc, itu Cuma English aja)…alasannya sederhana aja, karena ada teman2 gw yang ga bias bahasa Indonesia dan senang membaca apapun yang gw tulis. Gw dah coba liat pake google translate ternyata tulisan ini jadi ga berjiwa gw setelah lewat google…jadilah gw sedikit merelakan waktu untuk menulis 2 kali…hitung2 memberitahukan dunia betapa gilanya fans Laruku di Indonesia
Kita lanjut ke pokok postingan ini
Beberapa hari belakangan ini…eh mungkin malah beberapa minggu belakangan ini, gw yang jarang FBan tiba2 jadi rajin banget…dan tempat yang dituju tak lain dan tak bukan adalah L’Arc~en~Ciel Indonesia … tempat dimana ribuan pengemar L’Arc~en~Ciel berkumpul. Biasanya gw cuma memantau aja ada info2 apa tapi semakin dekat hari bersejarah yang gw tunggu2 semakin ingin rasanya berkomunikasi dengan ribuan orang2 yang sama gilanya dgn gw itu.
Kegilaan mereka, termasuk gw, mungkin akan dipandang berlebihan oleh orang2 yang ga ngerti rasanya menunggu selama ini…penuh harap setiap ada gossip Laruku bakal datang … bahkan gw dah sampai pada titik dimana gw dah ga percaya lagi semua gossip mereka bakal dating… sampai hari itu datang, hari dimana L’Arc~en~Ciel mengumumkan kedatangan mereka ke Jakarta.
Konser Laruku ini bagaikan sebuah festival meriah … gw ga pernah merasakan aura mau nonton konser seperti yang gw rasakan sekarang. Ini bukan sekedar menunggu konser dimulai…ini sebuah Festival besar2an yang mencakup seluruh Indonesia.
Kenapa bagaikan festival? Read more of this post

It is 19 days to the concert I have been waiting for 11 years, the only band I want to see more than all the bands in the world combine into one….yes I love them THAT MUCH!!
As the historical day comes closer, although not fast enough, I have to publish this important post, a post where I share their setlist in every city they performed for their 20th L’Anniversary World Tour. I share the list after the summary and my expectation of songs to be sung on May 2nd.
|Judging from the lists below,
here are the songs to be expected in Jakarta
(because they were sung in every concert):
03. GOOD LUCK MY WAY
05. DRINK IT DOWN
07. X X X
08. forbidden lover
09. MY HEART DRAWS A DREAM
10. SEVENTH HEAVEN
11. STAY AWAY
12. READY STEADY GO
14. winter fall
|Songs played in different cities:
01. 瞳の住人 (6 cities)
02. Driver’s High (5 cities)
03. the Fourth Avenue Cafe (3 cities)
04. Link (4 cities)
05. fate (4 cities)
06. Blurry Eyes (4 cities)
07. DAYBREAK’S BELL (3 cities)
08. 叙情詩 (2 cities)
09. Caress of Venus (2 cities)
As you can see, there are 14 songs they always sang in every concert. I have no complain to that list because I like them all (Well…I love ALL their songs). I am glad Revelation always in their list…I really really really want to hear that song and feel the energy when we all can shout ‘hey…hey..hey..‘ and ‘REVELATION‘… I love how great energy that come through that song during all their live show.

As I have shared in my previous post about me getting the ticket, the race to get the ticket was quite intense.This is just a brief info of what I have read through out internet and from my friend. I usually don’t give care about ticketing, but this one is special….it’s L’Arc~en~Ciel’s concert in Jakarta!! I want to know how it goes.
There were 4 quotas of ticket selling.
During the pre-sale (January 27, 2012), they were sold online in RajaKarcis.com:
The VIP Tickets were sold out in an hour.
Premium Tickets were sold out in less than a day
Regular Tickets were still available till the next day Read more of this post

~(*.*~) (~*.*)~ ~(*.*~) (~*.*)~
I have posted about the upcoming concert of my most favorite band in the whole wide world few days ago, but that post was merely a shout out. Now, I want to share the story when I heard about it and when I finally got the ticket.
I like to call this as the beginning of a series of diaries in which I will share about waiting for the concert to start
In January 26, 2012, I was not working on Thursday and I dedicated that day to do house chores. I started my day with shopping for that day’s meal. And then I began ironing a mountain of clothes. I finished ironing around 10. Lunch time was drawing nigh so I had to start cooking or my father and I won’t have anything to eat. I cooked my first meal and getting ready to cook the second meal when my friend, Ajeng, texted me saying that ‘it’s official!!’
I knew exactly what she was referring to!
After that text, I couldn’t concentrate with my cooking anymore. I shed tears of happiness, my hand was trembling and I walked around the house without knowing what to do. It was like living in a dream. My friend was also crying and she was in public transportation hoping that people wouldn’t notice her. Read more of this post
