11. Mirai Sekai (from BUTTERFLY)
12. Anata

7 of the 11 tracks from BUTTERFLY appeared. Nothing too special about the setlist, but it's nice to see Blame (from Tierra) appear again, one of tetsuya's favourite tracks and one that he regrets not releasing as a single originally.

That was fast. They've announced that the DVD / Blu-ray for this live will be released in Autumn (Fall) 2014. It's shot using a total of 20 4k cameras. They don't mention if it will also include day 1. Probably just day 2. This will mark the debut of album tracks Mirai Sekai, shade of season, Blame on home video. Kasou is also an acoustic version. They performed 8 out of the 11 tracks from BUTTERFLY.

The new song EVERLASTING will be released as a single in a MUSIC & PHOTOS -国立競技場公演 Memorial Edition- (National Stadium Memorial Edition). It's scheduled to be released in 13 August 2014 and the package (3,700 Yen + tax) will include:
- DELUXE HARD COVER (approx. 28cm×32cm)
- LIVE PHOTOS(approx. 24cm×28cm)
- CD NEW SONG「EVERLASTING」
No idea if there will be a B-side or other tracks on the single though. The single is written by ken. It is not a ballad, it's actually a dark and upbeat song with a complex arrangement.

Finally, DOCUMENTARY FILMS ~WORLD TOUR 2012~ will debut in December 2014 in cinemas. No word on a home release.

Also, today's setlist:

1. CHASE
2. SEVENTH HEAVEN
3. REVELATION
4. GOOD LUCK MY WAY
5. BLESS
6. HONEY
7. winter fall
8. NEXUS 4
9. READY STEADY GO
10. metropolis
11. 未来世界 (mirai sekai)
12. 花葬 (kasou)
13. MY HEART DRAWS A DREAM
14. the Fourth Avenue Cafe
15. XXX
16. shade of season
17. DRINK IT DOWN
18. EVERLASTING
19. Blame
20. Caress of Venus
21. Driver's High
22. Link
23. あなた (anata)

Listened to the first bit of the song and sounding good! I think I will save my listen of the full thing for the studio version.  Or maybe we'll even get a PV?  I'm glad they came back with a song like this - different from what I expected.

Lyrics for EVERLASTING:


I swear to god
そう 似ていない人を 選んだのは …私
I swear to god
もう 帰らない 逢わない 私の強い …my will

止まない なぜに 止まない 君

I ask my heart
ねぇ 口づけて 気持ち 塞いでほしい
I ask my heart
そう 選んでも 私が 望んだのに… なぜ?

止まない 雨に  止まない 君
止まない 季節よ 止まない 詩よ
この 恋よ 

冷たい雨 降り注げ
君を洗い流して 隠しきれない
君にまだ 恋している

Translation:
I swear to God
The one who chose these people to whom I don't look alike was ....me

I swear to God
I use all my strongest will not going to meet you and coming back home to you

Everlasting why, everlasting you

I ask my heart
Why do I wanna shut up our kisses, those feelings we shared?
I ask my heart
Even if what I chose was what I was wishing for, then ...why do I feel this empty without you?

Everlasting rain, everlasting you
Such everlasting season! Such everlasting poem!
Such love is this one!

The cold rain that falls incessantly
washes you away, revealing
That there's still love in you

2014.03.21 MCs

hyde: We wanted to make a new single before this concert. But well. You can see that didn't happen. It was a dream. But. Dreams come true. (then they played EVERLASTING)

ken: Last night I dreamed I was in a contest where I had to shake a podometer. I shook so much I shook myself awake. Rubbing is nice. Rubbing hands, or rubbing anything. I wonder who invented rubbing. Do monkeys rub? Even dogs can lick but humans rub.

hyde: That rubbing story... ken-chan. Well. We are L'Arc~en~Ciel. Please forgive us.

ken: I wonder what it's like to be a whale. Or plankton. What is it like to be PLANKTON!?

tetsuya: WASSHOI! WASSHOI!! genki? ogenki? It looks like it's going to rain. Because you're all wearing ponchos.

hyde: (hyde played around with the light effects ) This is why your tickets were so expensive.

hyde talked about light wristband: everyone gets the wristband. If someone doesn’t get one, there's a black spot. So everyone is important for me.

hyde called kokuritsu as kokuri-chu.


2014.03.22 MCs

Hyde said ken wrote the melody of the new song.

ken: I don't how to make MCs that aren't dirty! Do you want dirty MCs or clean ones? (crowd: DIRTYYYY!!!) OK! So you know how yukkie really likes corners? Well all the corners of all the desks are now at the angle he likes. I don't get it but the look in yukkie's eyes when he sees these corners is like any man seeing a woman's corner. (yuki: *dead* hyde; *also dead*) yukkie is amazing! I don't know why he likes corners so much.

ken: Yesterday was cold, but my outfit was really warm. Today it's warmer but I'm cold because my shirt is open!

ken: In Hokkaido I bought some heating pads and put them in pants at my crotch. But now with the guitar pressing on it, it's too hot!

ken; Maybe in the 21st century kyougijou I can adjust the temperature. OH maybe the new one will have a roof?!

hyde: today is sunny day, so many teruteru-bouzu are here, you all make the weather sunny, right.

hyde said its too cold yesterday

hyde talked about kokuritsu: it'll be destroyed to renew, this was the last live here. If this facility is renewed we want to live here in the near future-styled facility. I've seen the design. It's just like mirai sekai.

Wow 2 years already. Sadly, it really looks like their next world tour is going to be in 2016, seeing that they currently only have 1 new song since 2012.

Looks like VAMPS really like England, 2 shows in less than 6 months (2013 and 2014), then a DVD of the London concert, now the Download Festival. smiley: roll
