Nope. I guess the thing is running about 11 minutes late. Nulbarich--who is/are performing right now--are up right before Perfume.

Yes. Nulbarich--who is/are playing right now--followed by our favorite ladies.

Judging from the scrolling chat messages, all the love is for either Perfume or BlackPink.

I didn't miss them! Nulbarich...sounds like Japanese disco. It's not bad though!

I'm happy you answered the Bat Signal!

Good God I don't get how you like this.

ETA: one of the live chat comment captured it well. "All of Japan are 6 year olds?"

Minus the broad brush painting of entire nation that's actually what I was starting to think.

Well, that was incredible. 21 minutes was livestreamed, so that's good. The live stream cut out just as Perfume was starting to perform "Fusion." So, clearly their portion of the festival is still going locally, whereas it's over for us at home.

Anyway, it must be very hot there right now, 'cause when they came onstage they were visibly sweating just a little bit. I've never, ever seen them break a sweat before except just barely during one YouTube video, once.

Since Tokyo is both their hometown and the place where the festival is being held--A-chan, Nocchi, and Kashiyuka probably had a shorter commute time than any other act at the festival--they clearly had the "home field advantage." The fans were CLEARLY there for Perfume. HOLY COW were they energized.

Honorentheos: How dare you. Did you not see the shots of all the audience members? How many 6 year-olds did you see?

That entire call and repeat Happy! whatever looked like an arena full of them. Just wow. That was drek.

Look man. You want to share something you like that isn't my thing, no big deal. I won't share an opinion. You want to make it into a cult and demand it be treated special? It's getting critiques hard. That sucked.

I looked too. It's gone up by two degrees, but it says that it "feels like 108°." So it must've "felt like" 106° when they stepped on stage.

Yep, that's just what they do.

To answer your earlier question, the second song was "Electro World," not the first. Those were the same background graphics that they used during my San Jose concert. Being only 20 feet in front of them, and another 40 or so feet in front of the screen, imagine how great it was.

Sure enough, this performance reminds me yet again that Perfume is pure magic.
