Over the weekend I was lucky enough to see VAMPS playing twice at Japan Night in London! I'd only planned to go on the Friday, as I couldn't afford tickets for both nights, but on Saturday I ran into the lovely Kimi, who gave me a spare pass she had for that night. <3
On Friday I arrived at the venue a few hours early. About a month ago I had surgery on my feet, and whilst I'm almost recovered now, I still have to use crutches, and didn't want to risk someone jumping on my feet, so I arrived early so I could stand in the front row, which would be safer (and I could put my crutches down behind the barrier and hold on to that instead if I needed to). Thankfully, I managed to get a front row spot on Kaz's side.
My look that day was inspired by the girl on the cover of the BLOODSUCKERS album, because I had fun doing her makeup a couple of months ago. I didn't have anything like the clothes she wears, so I cut up my tour shirt from 2013 to make it a more flattering style (used to hardly wear it because of the shape it was haha), and keeping with the feel of the album, went for a vampire/pirate/rock-themed outfit.
The concert was amazing on both days. The setlists were pretty similar on both days, and there was a good mix of songs from their new album and popular, older ones. Sadly, they never played The Jolly Roger, which is the song I'd wanted to hear the most. Hyde spoke to the crowd a lot, and really tried his best with English, which was cute.
