Dokidoki wakuwaku Pamyu Pamyu Revolution Land 2012
Kyary Pamyu Pamyu largest concert to date was performed in Japan on November 6, 2012 in the Nippon Budokan. The arena is located at Kitanomaru Park, which lies in the center of Tokyo. The concert was recorded for both to be released on DVD/BluRay and a music CD. All versions were first available on the market as of February 13, 2013, the same time that Kyary was on her first world tour. The DVD version, that I bought online, came with two DVDs. One of them holding the main concert and the other DVD holding the DVD extras, like behind the scenes stuff.
The concert differed from her other shows that she has put on across the world in that she could have a big stage and that lots of money was put into making it a big show. The stage from the Japan show was full of scenery and had been built with the help of one of her close friend Sebastian. Anyone that has seen her music videos that Sebastian has worked on can see that stage show, from scenery to the costumes, follows the trend of her videos, in being very bright and very colourful. That was the major difference from Lhe london show. It would have cost too much money to try and replicate that sort of production the other side of the world.
The DVDs run for about 96 minutes or so. The main show features all of her regular songs, like Fasion Monster, Candy Candy, Kimi Ni 100 Percent, Ponponpon, and more. The show is very entertaining from start to finsh. At one point it even has Kyaray flying like an angel high in the air! The behind the scenes are great too.
The whole show is in Japanese, as that the product is designed to be sold on the Japanese market, but buying it for the music is just as fun. Its a nice thing to add to your Kyaray Pamyu Pamyu collection. The DVD with works on all regions of DVD players, which great news for those who dont have a reg2 player. The limited editon DVD version features a book styled case to hold the discs, insted of a normal boring plastic case. The case has a booklet with about 20 or so photos from the show, all in very nice quality. You definitely get the feeling that they have taken their time when putting the packaging together for the DVD, as its really nicely done and it’s great to look through. Another thing to know is that you only get the bonus stuff with the limtied edtion DVD version and not the BluRay version of the show.
Where to buy it
I bought my DVD from hmv.co.jp. It is available from cdjapan.co.jp as well. Just be aware of that if it gets stuck in cutoms, you will end up paying extra taxes on it. I have also seen it available on Ebay, it might be a good alternative place to buy from. Just check the prices with Japan first, sometimes Ive seen stuff like this sell for duble it’s original price.
