If you know me, you know I basically worship Tsunku and obviously the opportunity to see him perform with Sharan Q was something I wasn’t going to miss. But first things first…
This being my first show in Japan, there was basically one main concern I had before the show: getting drunk. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t want to get so wasted I don’t remember ever being to the show in the first place (though this has happened before). It’s just that in my experience, a good buzz at a show is crucial to my overall enjoyment of it. It might be silly, but music just sounds better to my ears with a little bit of alcohol in me, you know?
As to why all this was an issue is because alcohol and live shows in Japan was something I really had no prior knowledge of. Obviously bringing your own booze is probably not very well liked anywhere in the world and I wasn’t about to do that, but I didn’t even know if Zepp Nagoya served alcohol in the first place, and if they did, could you buy it throughout the show?
