A while back on Saturday April 17th 2010, Lady Gaga played the first of two sold-out shows at Tokyo’s Yokohama Arena. These were the only two Tokyo-area stops on her sold-out-all-over-the-world “Monster Ball” tour. Lady Gaga is popular everywhere on the planet, but her Japanese fans really love her and go all out whenever she comes to visit them. Her fans were also were out in force last July at Summer Sonic 2009, staying past last train to see Gaga live. Since then, her Japanese fan base has grown exponentially, thanks to word of mouth from her “Little Monsters” as well as heavy radio and video play of her hits. Her latest single/video “Telephone” featuring Beyonce (who is also uber-popular among young Japanese women) can be seen and heard all over Tokyo at any time of the day or night – from clubs to shops to parties.

I like the traditional touch shown by these two ladies. : D
Japanese are at least light years in front of Singaporeans when it comes to dressing up, and not just for concerts.
Incidentally, this was the concert that Matsumoto Jun and Sakurai Sho went to see together! Apaarently they arrived for the concert, met up, and then left separately again. Jun said it was an amazing concert!
