The Hey!Say!Jump-ing Tour ‘08-’09 kicked off in Osaka on Saturday. Here’s a few impressions of the first concert, compiled from various sources.

There was a center stage in the middle of the auditorium from where 4 walkways spread out in all directions, leading to the main stage and three side stages. The picture on the right should give you an idea of what it looked like.

The concert started off with a VTR that was made to resemble a TV program, introducing the JUMP members. The TV theme was used at various points throughout the whole concert.

Takaki: producer
Yabu: director
Hikaru: assistant director
Inoo: sound
Daiki: 1st camera
Yuto & Chinen: 2nd camera
Yamachan: handycam
Keito & Ryutaro: lighting (thanks karayuquex for clearing that up)

After the intro video the real concert began.

“Osaka, are you ready!?!”

The JUMP members entered the main stage and performed their first two songs, Ultra Music Power and Dreams come true, hopping and jumping about throughout the arena and supported by all your favourite Tokyo and Kansai Juniors. One observer described it as “like watching Shonen Club“. Chinen’s baby-voice is finally gone for good which became especially evident during his “kaze wo kire~♪” line in UMP. It brought tears to quite a few people’s eyes, apparently. Whether that’s because they were happy or sad I don’t know. For the first time in recorded history the JUMP members took to the stage as what can be called a real band, with Keito on the guitar, Inoo on keyboards, Yuto on drums and Hikaru playing bass.

The members gathered on the main stage again and went on to perform their standard repertoire:

* Your Seed
* Fly (or Fry as some Japanese fans like to call it :D)
* Wonderland Train
* Uruwashi no Bad Girl (Yuto solo, Keito playing guitar)
* Ryutaro dance solo
* Yamachan solo (unknown new song)
* Chinen solo (unknown new song)
* Deep night kimi omou
* Mayonaka no Shadow Boy

MC corner and general fooling around. Apparently there was a classroom-like setting, similar to that on Hyakushiki, and Yabu was playing the teacher, and they were talking about Scrap Teacher and Gokusen.

* Star Time (accoustic version with Yabu and Hikaru playing guitar and bass)
* Junior corner
o (Kyomoto & Uekusa performing another Tegomass song)
o Seiten no hekireki (Sanada, Nozawa, Miyadate Ryouta, Watanabe Shouta)
* BEST corner:
o Thrill
o unknown new song
o Kumo no ito (Takaki solo song, Yuto on drums, Inoo on keyboard, Yabu & Keito on guitars, Hikaru on bass)
* Itoshi no playgirl
* Summary
* Chance to change
* Bouken Rider
* Hey! Say!
* Memories (ending song)

At that point Daiki said how great it was to see all those happy faces, and Takaki asked “Shall we do one more?”

* Encore
o Yuuki100%
o Tobira no mukou
o Ultra Music Power

And that was it. There were obviously a million little details that I didn’t mention here, and that’s just because I didn’t see the concert with my own eyes. But God knows I would have loved to, because from what I’ve read it must have been a great concert, not only but especially because of the new songs and some of the members playing instruments. But I’m sure we’ll get to hear all the news songs very soon on Hi!Hey!Say! and Show wa Hey!Say!.

The Hey!Say!Jump-ing Tour ‘08-’09 continues with shows in Osaka on Sunday, Nagoya next Saturday and Sunday, and Yokohama Arena on January 3-5.

Finally, one more thing: no complaints about Yuuki100% please. Yes, I know it’s originally a Hikaru GENJI song, and it’s a terrible loss that they’re not around anymore. But that was a million years ago, so please get over it.
