Chiaki Ishikawa

Another live show about to start. Art and Music shows include a guest for conversation, this time the guest is Manzo, bass player and producer and singer who has worked with Halko Momoi, Lisa Komine and Yuuka Nanri.
 
Concert was 5pm to 7pm. Good humour again from Chiaki-san who wore a red dress with short black puffed sleeves and a hat.

2 new songs, with the first possibly being the one recently written for Nagi Yanagi. All the backing tracks appeared to be remixes/rearrangements with live vocals similar but different from previous lives and studio recordings.

The auditorium was quite chilly as Chiaki-san had warned of in an earlier tweet which was a welcome relief from the heat.

Songs included TW, the Kamisama Dolls insert song, Cloudy, the Gundam00 movie theme. Clear and unstrained singing throughout.

The dancer from a previous live appeared during 2 song performances, and Manzo appeared for a chat with Chiaki-san also.

A good atmosphere between Chiaki-san and the audience made for an great evening.
 
Quick concert report:

Chiaki Ishikawa was in good health and spirits, had a pianist (same one as the live clip of TW on YouTube from 2013?) and an electronic keyboard / sequencer player.

I have reached Yuki nirvana
You know, seeing stages with full scenography, not relying on LEDs and overdone lighting (obviously I don't know how the lighting was here from the photo) is always so refreshing.
 
As we suspected and hoped for, after Chiaki Ishikawa sang the Kamisama Dolls OP and Uninstall at Flying Dog live (with Jr, Kyoichi Sato and Koichi Korenaga), a keyboard was brought to the centre of the stage and Yuki Kajiura joined them for Anna ni Issho Data no ni. Yuki Kajiura announced the musicians and Chiaki Ishikawa announced Yuki Kajiura, then they left giving each other a palm to palm touch and exited via the same door.
 
Besides the 20th April 2019 concert, Chiaki Ishikawa has announced lives on 21st July 2019 (art and music) and 16th November 2019 (25th anniversary concert in Yokohama).

At this stage I won't be able to attend on 21st July 2019.
 
Another good concert, Chiaki-san had a bass player, guitarist and "band master" who controlled backing music.

Set list:

3 or 4 of the songs had long introductions, with the entire concert being just over 2 hours long.
Chiaki-san was enjoying the performances and was in good humour as usual in the MC's.
