It was great! Even if it rained a lot!
I'm so sorry I couldn't get my recorder to work. I guess that with the rain and the raincoat the sound would have not sounded good but still that would have been better than nothing...
Those who told me IDS events are special were right, it was very special indeed. We were all so close to the stage, it was very intimate and when Maaya was speaking she was also more familiar than the big Saitama live for example. As always she was very funny.
She said she made a setlist with songs around traveling and the sea, and tried to pick songs she didn't do at Saitama. So there were almost only "minor" songs as they say in Japan.
My favorite were DIVE and Light of Love, I also really liked Yakusoku ha Iranai where she did a little bit of the Gabriela Robin vocal parts just after the first chorus, of course I also loved Kuuki to Hoshi.
She played with her IDS band called the Cucumbers, composed of 4 members: some guy doing the keyboard and the flute, some other guy doing the guitar, some woman playing the cello, and another woman doing percussions. Everyone except the percussionist were also singing from time to time but we could barely heard their voices.
This won't be released but a few songs should be broad-casted, there were a lot of TV cameras.
