Finally, the dream project tour “PUMPKINS UNITED WORLD TOUR” that finally landed in Japan! The fastest report and the best live album is here !!
Kai Hansen and Michael Kiske have returned, and a special tour consisting of 7 members of triple vocals and triple guitar. That expectation is a big explosion in Japan. Tickets are sold out as soon as they are released in advance. It was a fuss that even the re-additional performance, which became rare in the Western music scene these days, was announced. This work is the best audience recording of the first day “March 16, 2018: EX Theater Roppongi” performance. First, let’s take a look at the whole picture of this monumental tour.

Above, all 7 performances. Although it is 5 cities of Higashi-Meihan + Sapporo, it goes back and forth between Tokyo and the region. It seems that the slapstick that the additions overlapped on the busy schedule can be seen through. Among them, the Roppongi performance of this work was held only four days ago. It’s just the latest recording.
Of course, it’s not early or bad. After all, it was the master “West Japan’s strongest taper” who recorded this work. A modern master recording person who constantly repeats famous recordings that are acclaimed as “just like a sound board” and “sound better than the scene”. In particular, his strong point is HR / HM, and his skill is fully demonstrated in this work.
However, this time it is a little different from the usual “strongest” sound. No, there is no sense of distance and the awesomeness of the thick and thick direct sound is as usual, but the enthusiasm of the audience who receives the performance sound is different from usual. The usual “Mr. Strongest” recording feels enthusiasm far away, but on this day, the enthusiasm boiled from corner to corner. Of course, the usual strongest sound is just abnormal, this is the original audience recording, and if it is a general standard, the audience noise is rather small, but the presence of this audience is also a good feeling. .. Rather than being annoyed by the singing voice of the upcoming audience (never!), The clapping is on the beat, and the singing is a thick and thick chorus corps that functions exactly as part of the live performance. Even if the amount of heat is raised, it does not get in the way. Speaking of the spectacle of the “Keeper Of The Seven Keys” big chorus like the ocean that comes back and forth …
The show drawn with such quality is … amazing. As many of you may know it because it has been talked about in various fields, the super-greatest hits are constantly flooded with famous songs of all time. Approximately Andi Deris and Michael Kiske are in charge of their own songs, but the opening blockbusters “Halloween”, “Dr. Stein”, “Perfect Gentleman”, “Forever And One (Neverland)” and “Keeper Of The Seven Keys” A duet that is too luxurious for “I Want Out”. In addition, the early masterpiece “How Many Tears” and “Pumpkins United”, which will be the world premiere on this day, are triple vocals with Kai!
In addition, Kai Medley is also placed in the middle of the show, and there are a lot of early masterpieces that are inevitable for old fans to tear. No way, the day will come when you can listen to “Starlight” and “Heavy Metal (Is The Law)” with Kai’s singing voice.
Of course, the masterpieces of the Guardian Shinden sung by Michael Kiske’s singing voice are even more irresistible. Kai’s “March of Time” and “Future World” and his own “A Little Time” were sung at UNISONIC, but this is a revived masterpiece of Michael Weikath’s section with a real voice. “Rise and Fall”, “A Tale That Wasn’t Right”, “Livin’Ain’t No Crime” … and “Eagle Fly Free” !!! The highlight of the super-luxury project, the whole story is covered Highlights in the highlights of the live album. I don’t know what percentage of the fans went to the venue to listen to this and sing, but it’s probably 100%. A glossy high tone that no one else can do even if they want to imitate it. And it is Kai who takes the chorus. A super masterpiece that flies while the two singing voices are mixed (not a duet) …. It’s the best. it’s the best. It ’s the best!
……I must sincerely apologize. Other than that, the harmony of triple guitar that exceeds IRON MAIDEN, the strangeness of duet arrangement, the drum battle with Ingo, the slightly dangerous feeling of “Pumpkins United” which will be the world premiere, etc. A set of 3 pumpkin paradises with unusual volume and density. The first and finest blow. Come on!
