I went to the afternoon show of SixTONES' Crea on the 30th of May! I know I'm pretty late and people might have already read about this on twitter or wherever, but I only just got back from Japan a couple of days ago and just got over a bad cold, and I still want to share how it was with everyone so I thought better late than never :'). My seat was in the back row, but since the theatre is really tiny (I think it sat like 600 people?) I could see completely fine! I don't recall everything due to me not understanding what they were saying/forgetting bits/too busy looking at Hokuto to see what the other members were doing etc, but I think I remember most of it :)

It started out with all six members standing behind the curtain and you could see their silhouettes, then Jesse yelled in English "We are Stones!!" and the curtain dropped and Kono Hoshi no Hikari started playing. After that was Be Crazy, and both of those songs just had their usual singing/choreo. Then they sang a new SixTONES song??? But I hadn't read any reports because I was trying to keep the show as a surprise to myself so I just presumed it was a Johnny's song I didn't know and have like 0 memory of it :') oops. But I do remember Yugo doing some beatboxing! It was really cool! The music went quiet and he did it :3 at least I'm pretty sure it was during this song.. haha. Then they sang Lips, and they came down to the main horizontal aisle in between the front and back rows in pairs, and I think they stood on some sort of stage thing, because they were pretty elevated from where the actual floor was. First was Jesse and Taiga and they kind of got really close to each other and sang staring into each others eyes, and almost kissed lol. Then was Hokuto and Shintaro, and lastly Yugo and Juri. I don't think they did anything significant, just sang and waved to the audience.

Then they sang duets together! Jesse and Yugo were first and sang Move Your Body, and it was super cute! They were all dancing cutely together and grabbing each other. Halfway through the song Yugo walked offstage and Jesse was like where's Yugo? Then Jesse walked off stage and Yugo walked on, and Yugo was like where's Jesse? If any of you see Jesse, please yell out THERE'S JESSE!!! A couple of seconds later Jesse walked on stage, and the audience all yell THERE'S JESSE!!! But then he walked behind this like divider thing you'd see in a dressing room or something. Yugo turned around and couldn't see him, so he was like where is he? I don't see him! Then Juri walked out from behind the divider thing and Yugo ran over to him, but then he was like you're not Jesse you're Juri! Then Yugo walked behind the divider thing and Jesse walked out again, and Jesse said where's Jesse? Then they swapped again, and Yugo said where's Yugo? Then Yugo walked behind again, then they both walked out at the same time from opposite directions and walked past each other being like I wonder where he is~ Then they both walked out again, and Jesse said hey I'm looking for a guy called Jesse, have you seen him? Then Yugo is like no, but I'm actually looking for a guy called Yugo, have you seen him? Then Yugo was like wait... I'm Yugo... and Jesse was like... I'm Jesse... Then they grab each other and did the GYAKU NI NE!/WHAT A SURPRISE! thing similar to the dog skit Jesse and Juri did on the Shokura Spring Special. It was so cute ^^. Then Hokuto and Shintaro did a duet, and then Juri and Taiga. I didn't know either of the songs, but apparently they were Kanjani8 songs? Hokuto and Shintaro's was really sexy; they were dancing sexily a lot and it was nice :3. They also did this bit where they grabbed each other by their shoulders. They also sang pretty even amounts of solo lines, and they sounded really good! I think they've been practicing singing. Juri and Taiga had mic stands and acoustic guitars (pastel coloured from memory? I don't remember what colours exactly though) and was more like a ballady type song. That also sounded really nice :).

They then sang The D-Motion! They had sunglasses and were lying on the ground dancing all roboty with sudden jarred movements, then they took them off and stood up and started dancing properly. It was pretty similar to what they did on Shokura, but that hadn't aired yet. They then did Follow, which again was similar to the time they did it on Shokura. They did the shirt lifting thing and everyone screamed really loud haha. The second time towards the end of the song the only person who did the shirt lifting thing was Juri, so I don't think they were supposed to do it that time lol. They then sang Shake it Up, which started with them all standing on separate podiums at the back, altgough they kept running to each others and doing stuff together lol. The only one I remember though is Taiga trying to hug Hokuto and Hokuto running away D:. They then came back down onto the main stage and they all brought mic stands out, with big sheets connecting each of them together, making a wall. Each sheet was a different member's colour. They sang using those mic stands for a little bit, then started dancing. Then they all ducked down behind the sheets and like kept jumping up briefly to look at the audience lol. Then Yugo jumped up and started dancing, then went down again. Then the other five jumped up and started dancing, then went back down again. They did that a couple of times in a row. Then they brought all of the mic stands into the middle of the stage in the shape of a circle, and all stood inside the circle with the sheets around them. During the bridge where they all get solo lines they all jumped up to sing their bit, then went back down again. Then for the rest of the song they just acted silly and like pulled each other back down when they were trying to sing and stuff, it was really cute :).

Then was the MC! My Japanese isn't perfect, and they spoke really fast so I had a bit of trouble understanding all of it... There were plenty of times everyone in the theatre was laughing really hard and I was just sitting there having no idea what was going on lol. But I understood bits of it! They talked about how Jesse, Juri and Hokuto's birthday's were coming up soon, and Taiga made a joke that they should just make one cake to share between the three of them, and those three weren't impressed lol. Taiga said that he doesn't remember Yugo's birthday, but then Yugo said that Taiga was the first one to message him happy birthday at midnight, and he was surprised it was Taiga to be the first lol. Then Yugo and Jesse told a story about how on Yugo's birthday Jesse took Yugo out for lunch near Tokyo Tower, but he forgot his wallet so Yugo ended up having to pay for it D:. There were two dressing rooms, one with Yugo and Shintaro and Juri, and one with Jesse and Hokuto and Taiga. Apparently when it's just Hokuto and Taiga they never talk and it gets awkward lmao. Hokuto just sits there playing Animal Crossing on his DS, and Taiga once tried to hum the song to make it less awkward, but he accidentally hummed the wrong song and it got even more awkward, so he just left to the other dressing room lol. So Hokuto just sat in the dressing room by himself playing Animal Crossing :'). Then someone (I think Jesse?) asked him how do you feel when you're left alone like that? And Hokuto said I just think to myself "Damn Animal Crossing is really fun!" lmao.
Apparently everyone can hear the cicadas from the game even from the other dressing room, and it annoys everyone lol. Once Hokuto went to the other dressing room looking for Juri, but Juri wasn't there, so he just stood in the doorway and made the noises the cicadas make in the game and walked away lol. Then Shintaro started humming a song and showed us the dance to it, I didn't know what was happening at the time but it must have been the new song. Then Yugo was like when you sing it like that all I hear is the song from Pokemon! Then they all started sing the theme for the Pokemon Centre lmao. Then they somehow got into doing this little Pokemon skit, based on the generation 1 Pokemon games. Taiga was the main character, and Hokuto was Nurse Joy, and Hokuto healed Taiga's Pokemon, making the noises from the game and everything lol. Then Taiga went outside and talked to Yugo, who was like the old man who teaches you how to catch Pokemon. I didn't understand their whole conversation properly, but Yugo said something like once they turn 30 years old you'll be able to catch them, and then Taiga was like don't you mean level 30? And Yugo was like ah yeah, that. Then Shintaro was a wall?? And Taiga and Shintaro just walked into each other repeatedly making the noises it makes when you walk into a wall in the game lol. Then Juri was the shorts boy. I think he must have said the "I like shorts, they're comfy and easy to wear!" line but I didn't understand it lol. Then Taiga and Juri got into a Pokemon battle, and all the other members started singing the Pokemon battle music while Taiga and Juri twirled around in circles and got into "battle position" lol. Shintaro was Juri's Pokemon, and was a Geodude lol. Juri threw Shintaro out and Shintaro did like this flexing macho pose. Then Yugo was Taiga's Pokemon, and he was a Ditto! Taiga threw Yugo out and he did this paint me like one of your French girls pose on the floor, lol. Then Jesse said that looks like the pose from The D-Motion! And got down next to Yugo and did the exact same pose, lol. Then Juri asked Jesse what Pokemon is in English, and Jesse said it in this funny accent, like Pokeemon lol. Then all the members laughed and we're like you're definitely lying! Then they went onto talk about some sort of childrens character thing? But I didn't understand any of it lol. They also said that Yugo had been practicing beatboxing, and wants to include it in a solo of his next year. Hokuto also said that whenever he's talking to Shintaro, he thinks about the fact that Shintaro has a really loud voice and it makes him laufgh. Then Shintaro said something I didn't understand in a weird voice and it made everyone laugh. They all started making fun of Shintaro for talking so loudly and constantly and he was like but I've barely talked during this MC! Then Shintaro taught us part of the dance for Be Crazy, the bit in the bridge with the finger guns. He called the bit before that where they bop left and right with their hand on their chin the thinking man lol.

Then they started singing again, and they did a jazz version of Kono Hoshi no Hikari! In a band! Shintaro was on drums, and Hokuto was on keyboard, and the other four were sitting in a semi circle in the middle of the stage with Yugo on bass, Juri on guitar, and Jesse and Taiga on vocals. It was so good, everyone must have practiced hard because it sounded great! I really want them to do this on Shokura because I want to see it again lol. Then they all did solo songs, but I didn't know what any of them were lol. Jesse did a Kinki Kids song and stood in the middle of the stage singing, kind of like how he always does lol. Then Juri did a song that was mostly rap, and started out at the podium thing at the back and walked down. Then it was Hokuto's he did the same thing but it was a ballad and was holding a big book. After he walked down he went to the keyboard and started playing that Smile song from Shark! Then Shintaro did his, and it involved a lot of dancing and a chair. Then was Taiga's and he sang a ballad type thing with a mic stand, hitting really high notes and stuff. Then Yugo's was last, and he was like to the audience! Make sure you put on a big smile!! I love smiles! and it was this really cute song. All the other members and the other backing juniors all back danced for him as well, it was really sweet. At one point Yugo turned around and used a finger gun to pretend to shoot Hokuto, and Hokuto grabbed at his chest and pretended to collapse lol. Then later on he did the same to Shintaro and Shintaro just stood there dead pan and stared back at Yugo, and Hokuto yelled out "he's way stronger than me!" lol. Then they did some other songs they've done on Shokura before like Peak, Rockin' and Ai no Command, as well as some songs I didn't know, but I don't remember anything significant happening during these. But it was during one of these songs they all went into the audience and walked around high fiving people, but it was only really the people in the front sections so not me unfortunately rip. Then they all stood on the little stage thing in the middle aisle again and sang, but Hokuto stayed down and kept running around and high fiving people in the audience. Because of this I kept watching Hokuto run around and I have no idea if the other five did anything interesting while singing then, sorry :').

Then they did the first encore, which was Paradox and Six Senses! During Six Senses in the bridge when they all stand up and do their own little solo dance bit, Yugo blew a massive kiss to the audience and it was adorable. The other five just danced and didn't do anything significant lol. They were also all getting really excited and trying to get everyone to sing and dance along, but I don't think many people caught on haha. It was also during this encore that everyone (mainly Jesse) tried to take Hokuto's shirt off. Hokuto ran to the back of the stage to avoid it and Jesse yelled out after him JUST TAKE IT OFF! Hokuto spent like at least 20 seconds facing the back of the stage behind everyone else trying to button his shirt up again lol. The second encore was Be Crazy, and they all got us to do the dance! We were all doing the dance with our penlights and it looked really cool.

That's it! Sorry it's so long D: I had a lot to say lol, I hope you enjoyed reading! Crea is by far the most fun Johnny's concert I've ever been to! Not that I've been to that many lol. If you're ever in the situation where you're choosing whether to see Crea or Summer Station or Johnny's World etc, definitely choose Crea!! I loved it.

Also Hokuto saw me and that I was his fan and waved at me TWICE and I died and I'm still not over it /csb

Thank you so much for the report.
And and so many yugo cuteness, and i love him even more.
I want to see it too, sad that there's no dvd for it.
I am happy to hear that they did great.
Ond yugo did beatboxing. I want to hear it.
Please sing that in shokura SiXTONES.
Btw, just adding from repo that i read.
They said that the song when kouchi beatboxing is their new song, it just supposed to be dance part, like overture, but they adding the lyric for it and sang it. And it didnt have tittle yet so they gave it name "yes, i am" like answer for be crazy lyric.
"Are you crazy?"
"Yes, I am"

Oh and idk but from other repo they said that kouchi who played bass while juri played guitar. But you said kouchi was guitar and juri was bass?

Thank you again for the repo.

I wish there's fanaudio or better fancam for it.
I am happy that they keep getting better.
Proud fan.

No problem! :D I have always wanted them to release it on DVD too, it has always seemed so fun D: hopefully when they debut we will get concert DVDs :D

I don't think they talked about that at the show I went to! I think that was from one of the shows on the 28th? Like I said I didn't read many reports on twitter beforehand and afterwards I couldn't be bothered scrolling haha.

Really?? I thought I counted the number of strings on each guitar to double check, but I might be wrong lmao. Like I said I was mainly watching Hokuto :'). I'll ask some other friends who went and double check some other repos and change it if I need to. Juri on guitar would make more sense since he played it with Taiga too earlier on.
Jun. 9th, 2016 10:19 am (UTC)
Damn you're right about the guitar and bass :') will change! Thanks for telling me!
Jun. 9th, 2016 06:30 pm (UTC)
Thank you very much for the report!! I'm super jealous that you were able to go but I'm really happy for you that you had such a good time, it sounds like such a fun show!!
Jun. 10th, 2016 04:04 am (UTC)
No problem! :) and thank you haha, I had a lot of fun ;_;. It sucks that it's so hard for us foreign fans to be able to go to a concert >< but I'm sure one day you will be able to go too!!
Jun. 9th, 2016 06:32 pm (UTC)
Thank you for the report c: sounds like it was really fun. I reaaaally want to hear their band version of kono hoshi no hikari. Hopefully someday I'll be able to go haha. Thanks again!
Jun. 10th, 2016 04:12 am (UTC)
No problem! :) It was really fun ;_;. The band version was really good!! I want them to do it on TV so I can put it on my ipod lol (or better yet release it on a CD ;_;). I hope you will be able to go someday too!! They're super fun and we need more foreign fans at their concerts lol.

Also not related to anything you said but your icon is really pretty!
Jun. 10th, 2016 12:40 am (UTC)
hokuto is GREAT live, isn't he??? When I saw him during Gamuhara summer stuff last summer, his smile in person really is pretty dokidoki oh man. I'm not usually like that, but I have to say, he made my heart flutter!

This sounds like sooo much fun! man I wish we could have some footage of any of this siiiiigh.
Jun. 10th, 2016 04:17 am (UTC)
He so is!!!! He obviously loves his fans so much and is such a big sweetie pie and ghjkhjfg. I could go on forever about how much of a wonderful person he is ;_;.

I went to Gamushara last year too! Which ones did you go to? Maybe we went to the same show lol. Hokuto never noticed me then though ;_; but it was okay a bunch of other juniors waved at me so I couldn't complain!

It was so much fun I loved it! I'm super broke from going this year but I am still going to try and save up to try and go next year haha. I wish they filmed it too I'd love to watch it again ;_;
Jun. 11th, 2016 12:04 am (UTC)
ugh i'm jealous of you getting to see Crea this year, last year fan audio turned up after a bit at least, but this year doesn't seem like that's going to happen. I would kill to hear Shintarou/Hokuto sing Torn, which I love.

Last summer we did both shows of the August 11th Summer Station (I think, it was the day before I flew home.) We saw Ga vs Ra and it was really lucky because I got to see all the members of SixTONES that way, and it was the only day I could go! So it worked out as well as it could have. It was so much fun.
Jun. 11th, 2016 04:50 am (UTC)
Yeah I want fan audio too! I have a friend who is a SixTONES fan and a big Pokemon fan and I really want him to hear the Pokemon skit lol.

I went to both of those shows too! And a Ga vs Ha show the day after. Are you Rory's friend by any chance? I think I spoke to you!
Jun. 11th, 2016 02:52 pm (UTC)
lol that's me, yes!! Haha, did we go to karaoke together maybe? Man, I am the WORST about who i met and what their names are, especially if I meet a bunch of people at once.

Was Ha yasui's group, right? I did want to see the skating, but I was fine with the way it worked out. He was such a cute older brother with the little kids, I love Yasui.
Jun. 11th, 2016 04:23 pm (UTC)
Yes we did! Don't worry I'm also terrible with names :')

Yes it was Yasui's group! I didn't really have any interest in that team, just wanted to see team Ra lmao
Jun. 11th, 2016 03:25 am (UTC)
I want to see Hokkyun's abs IRL too :(

Thank you SO MUCH for sharing ~ :*
Jun. 11th, 2016 04:51 am (UTC)
Hahahahahahaha don't we all :')

No problem! :D
Jul. 3rd, 2016 09:40 pm (UTC)

Jul. 6th, 2016 04:34 am (UTC)
