[J-Rock] Live Rip of L’Arc~en~Ciel’s new song “XXX” + Saitama Arena Live Day 1 Concert Comments & Setlist

As posted from my Tumblr account (laraceres14.tumblr.com):

Live recording of L’Arc~en~Ciel’s new song “XXX” (read as “Kiss Kiss Kiss) from the first stop of their 20th L’Anniversary Tour last night.

Thanks so much to the one who recorded this from their Saitama Arena Live last night! And of course to my friend littlemissvalentine for posting it in L’Arc PH. 🙂

It has a dark feel; definitely a Hyde song. During the concert, Hyde commented on the new single:

“I thought about giving everyone a kiss for this 20 years…I’m kidding. I wrote it thinking about erotic things. Next time, try to read it in your bed okay?” 

Also, I’m loving the concert reports! I loved it when Hyde said during his MC portion that L’Arc~en~Ciel is his band. *coughSORRYVAMPScough*  And that this tour made him truly feel that Laruku is back and will continue their activities after their World Tour.

AND the band reportedly had an orchestra with them for “Niji,” “Good Luck My Way,” “forbidden lover, “Lies and Truth,” “Link,” and “Anata.”  IMAGINE THAT!  ”Niji” was also reportedly performed as an acapella at the start of the concert. Omg for these new arrangements! I’m also dying to hear the L’Acoustic version of “Kasou” (also with orchestra accompaniment). ❤

There are so many amazing concert reports from the fandom. And it’s only for the first live of Laruku! I’m sure that there will be more to come. Very sure. 🙂

Thank you, L’Arc~en~Ciel, for being back. Thank you. I love you.
