Berryz Concert in Seattle

Quote
All girl super group Berryz Kobo originally hails from Hello! Project and consists of Saki Shimizu, Momoko Tsugunaga, Chinami Tokunaga, Maasa Sudo, Miyabi Natsuyaki, Yurina Kumai and Risako Sugaya. With 7 Albums and 24 singles to their credit, Berryz Kobo's first North American appearance is a dream come true for many fans.

Berryz Kobo had their debut single, "Anata nashi dewa ikite ikenai" on Girls Day (March 3rd) in 2004, and have been consistently impressing fans ever since. There are many highlights to their 6+ year history, including their 2005 Oricon top 10 hit "Special Generation". In 2007, Berryz Kobo gave sold out performances in the Saitama Super Arena (20,000 seats), becoming the youngest band to perform in this arena with an average age below 14 years. One year later, they won the Best Newcomer Award at the Asia song Festival in South Korea and then the Nihon Yuusen Taishou Award for their cover song of "Dschinghis Khan". In March 2010, Berryz Kobo was the first all girl Japanese group to perform in Bangkok Thailand. Their latest single "Shining Power", released on November 10th is an ending theme for the anime "Inazuma Eleven". Berryz Kobo are excited to perform in the USA for their international fans!

Well, that's cool...I'ma thinking that I'll probably go. Gotta check my $$$, but it should be doable much like H&A thingee we did way back when...LOL. So I'm thinking the Grand in Seattle like last time. Wonder if that's where they will stay????

WHo HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! I checked Sakura-cons sight before going to bed, and I wake up and find Dai's posted this on facebook!
Registering and hotel reserving now. Probably be at the Sheridan again this year.
I have to Commfess that Berryz are the group that brought me into the Jpop/Idol fandom and here to Jphip.
I hope to see a lot of you there.



ps, I'll try to be a better host this time and not get the group lost finding restaurants


also, they will probably be staying at the grand hyatt, con rooms have sold out, I tryed looking at non con rates and its almost double what I'm paying for the sheraton.  more than 200 a night, and right now I can't afford that as much as I would love to get that close.

Well dang. It's a bit early but... Since I was a kid I've for some reason wanted to visit Seattle, and recently as far as H!P I was waiting for when Berryz would come here... so I guess I'll have to go. I should even be able to afford it this year too. XD

I don't know anything about Seattle or Sakuracon... Any idea how it'll work? I'll have to figure out which days to schedule a flight/hotel around. :D If anyone would like to room up as well I'd also be yay for that... :D Need some other Berryz groupies to hang with!!! lol

Flash annoucement from the Department of Redundancy Dept.:
Hopefully there will be a lot of people who go and support the wonderful Berryz. If you have not been to Seattle before, it is a great city to visit, and those from the UK should be used to the weather  :lol:

Man I want to go soo bad! This is the weekend after my birthday and I can't think of a more perfect way to celebrate. And I think I actually have the money for it! Sadly I live on the east coast so this brings up two problems:

1. I'm terrified of airplanes (but I may be able to get over this for a chance to see the lovely Berryz)
2. My parents would never let me go (but I don't really see why they have to know since I'm 20 and in college 3 hours away so they won't really know if I'm just not around for a weekend)

I guess I'll just have to wait and see. Maybe and can convince some of my friends to come with me for airplane support.

I'm heavily leaning towards going...I've always wanted to visit Seattle and regret not being a fan when H&A was there. My money situation is a bit unstable right now but hopefully I can get it fixed in time to commit myself to this...it would be fun to see just how tall Yurina is in person. :lol:

Maybe they can do like H&A and sing updated versions of their old songs...

Thank you stark for your hosting back in 2009 when hANGRY & ANGRY blew our minds. We can't wait for the events this time around...looks like Japanfiles (via their email newsletter) is gonna release some surprise news soon!



Event schedule and autograph / live show details coming soon!

Rep us boys!

WERD Mugen.

I got some ideas swirling in my head, need ALL the Berryz fans here to help out. ChrNo! NAch! Tama! Wonderboy! i.e. JPHiP Style Gifts I think Momo will flip out when she sees her peach thing and our logo  :jphip:

WE :hipheart: gotta make this shit big!! Rep in Big Numbers so that future H!P Acts will be encouraged to go overseas, so if you are in the area, drop on by and show your support!

Well dang. It's a bit early but... Since I was a kid I've for some reason wanted to visit Seattle, and recently as far as H!P I was waiting for when Berryz would come here... so I guess I'll have to go. I should even be able to afford it this year too. XD

Homie, you the #1 Berryz Fan in the US. Heard from my wota friend Terry (y'all might have met her in Seattle and Los Angeles in 2009) so u know there's gonna be huge Japanese representation too.

Get your passes quick though, it gets more expensive as the con nears. TELL YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY! From past knowledge, there's a concert, Q&A + autograph session (you'll need to buy items at the Japanfiles booth) plus the Guest Reception in the Hyatt. For the concert, we stayed at the Sakura Con recommended hotels and got wristbands for priority seating. Similar to AX but laid back  :pimp:

AND THERE'S ALSO exist†trace! I mean female Visual Kei, what's not to like  :w00t:

Fucking great to see all the Sakura Con vets all up in here (Rickker708, Linna2040, Ops, alohellofan - ZAWOLF?!) They can help answer questions too roks.
