B’z have wrapped up their 30th year with a pair of fanclub-only performances in Hawaii. The show was performed over two days at two separate venues with the second also being streamed live to Japanese theaters.
The eighteen-song setlist included fan favorites from the anniversary tour that completed its run a week earlier but reshuffled. Most importantly, the shows featured the returns of numerous longtime fan requests. Some dated back to appearances 27 years ago.
The setlist has been posted below, no home video release has been announced at this time but it is possible the show could be packaged with an eventual release of B’z LIVE-GYM Pleasure 2018 -HINOTORI- sometime next year.
From now on we will also bring you the latest updates from the B’z PARTY staff. Fanclub staff members regularly post information about the fanclub and B’z. This will also give everybody the chance to understand them if you are a member of B’z PARTY and don’t speak Japanese.
This diary in particular reveals the title for the new song played during the show at the EX THEATER ROPPONGI and used as the ending music for the 25th anniversary tour Pleasure 2013 -ENDLESS SUMMER-. The title is “Kimi wo Ki ni Shinai Hi nado”.
Title: Speaking of winter…
Christmas illumination is lighting up the city, and once you see the Santa Claus and snowman decorations in front of all the shops, it certainly feels like winter. This year’s summer was a very, very long one (for B’z PARTY) and thus, we were not able to feel autumn at all and feel a bit sad about it. But we get to eat very delicious nabe in cold winters! Therefore we want to make up for fall this winter. (…fall is the best time to eat!? lol)
Well, speaking of winter, the annual christmas cards come to mind! They will be sent out momentarily and this year’s motive features a wonderful picture of Tak and Koshi that reflects this holiday season. Please look forward to it☆ And one more thing when speaking of winter… the annual B’z calendar!! Have you all already got your pre-orders in? This time we have also taken pre-orders at the venues during the ENDLESS SUMMER tour, and are currently underway to finish our final preparations before sending them out to you. When your B’z Calendar 2014 will be shipped depends on the time you have pre-ordered yours, so you might get the Christmas card at the same time as the calendar. For those that have pre-ordered, please look forward to the B’z Calendar 2014. ♪
And for those that haven’t pre-ordered yet, you can still order using the mail-in form contained in fanclub magazine vol. 99 and if you pay by December 15th, the calendar will be shipped before the end of the year. Those who just thought “Oh man, I want a B’z calendar now!” should please hurry. Of course you can also order at the fanclub member exlcusive online store “B’z PARTY the Store”. Just click “SHOP” after logging in to B’z PARTY. We hope that we are able to bring the B’z Calendar 2014 to as many people as possible before 2014.☆ Please look forward to it♪ (T)
The other day, on November 30th, B’z has rocked the EX THEATER ROPPONGI with their “B’z Special LIVE”. Just like we told you during the last staff diary, we have completed our work for fanclub issue no. 100 before the B’z Special LIVE. Therefore, we were not able to put a report regarding the B’z Special LIVE in the upcoming issue and would like to put the setlist information in this staff diary instead! There are a lot of songs that haven’t been played in a while as well as the unannounced ending song from the ENDLESS SUMMER tour as well as a cover of a LOUDNESS song. This is a very rare setlist. And since this is a concert after finishing up a long tour, this concert turned out to be a bit different from the usual LIVE-GYM performances, in a more relaxed atmosphere.☆

The official B’z fanclub has unveiled design samples of the upcoming B’z 2014 calendar. The calendar is exlcusive for B’z PARTY members and costs 2200 Yen.
Just in time for the new year, I have received the new B’z calendar 2013 from B’z Party! As with previous editions of the calendar, there are two versions of it: a monthly one and a weekly one. The monthly one is the larger version which is hung on a wall. I ordered the monthly version just like the past years. But this time, they spiced up the calendar! Compared to the previous edition, the 2013 is much larger in size. Unfortunately, that means it won’t fit into my scanner anymore and thus have to resort to taking pictures of it.
The pictures for the 2013 calendar were shot in California during their 2012 North American tour. Also, for the first time, Shane and Barry have joined Tak and Koshi for the photoshoot. The four are on just one picture, though. Look forward to seeing it! I won’t tell you which month. 😉
You can now take a look at the picture for January. We are starting out with a very cool picture! Enjoy!
