Today Visual Kei air band Golden Bomber held a concert in Tokyo - which lasted 8 seconds.
When you're at a concert and enjoying your time there time flies by so fast. Usually you hear people say "it was so short!" even though it lasted 1 1/2 or 2 hours. Today Golden Bomber's fans could really say "it was so short!" without exaggerating anything.
Today Golden Bomber released its official LINE stickers and to commemorate that in the morning of June 29th they announced a free live for the afternoon in Ikebukuro Sunshine City, a shopping mall in Tokyo. But the free live was supposed to last for only 8 seconds! A countdown started 3 minutes before the start of the live. When it reached 3, all four members came running on stage, started energetically playing their new song "deatte 8byou" (出逢って8秒), which can be translated as "the 8 seconds after we've met", and left the stage again after the 2nd countdown reached 8 seconds - of course running as fast as they could.
Realizing that this was really it fans started calling for an encore and indeed, the members answered this call. They came back on stage for a little talk. Laughing, vocalist Kiryuuin Shou thanked everyone for calling for an encore. After talking a few minutes he thanked everyone once again for this great day and got ready to leave the stage but fans started booing so he turned around and nodded: "Since there are also people here who simply went shopping, how about playing a song that everyone knows?" As real encore Golden Bomber performed their evergreen "memeshikute", interacting a lot with the fans. The live ended after the main concert of 8 seconds and the encore of about 10 minutes.
