August 23, 2015. The second day of VAMPS LIVE BEAST PARTY started with HYDE (vocal) and K.A.Z (guitar) appearing on the mikoshi once again.

HYDE shouted, “Come on, Bloodsuckers!” as the first song “REVOLUTION II” began. During the second number “AHEAD,” K.A.Z’s sharp guitar sounds cut the wind.

HYDE spoke to the crowd, “Welcome to the BEAST PARTY! Let’s enjoy the summer!” and continued onto “HUNTING” and “ANGEL TRIP.” During the latter, Ju-ken (bass) sang along with the fans during the chorus. The party continued with great energy as “TROUBLE” was played. The fans jumped around and danced freely.

A sentimental intro began. It was HYDE’s 2006 solo number “SEASON’S CALL.” K.A.Z used different guitar effects than the original, exciting the fans. Arimatsu (drums) and Ju-ken’s low sounds shook the venue.

Following were “I GOTTA KICK START NOW” and “HELLO.” HYDE stirred the crowd, shouting “Leave it to me! Give it your best!”

HYDE reappeared onstage after Arimatsu’s astonishing mashup solo. “I want to cross this ocean of Bloodsuckers,” he said, as he hopped onto a rubber boat to crowd surf his way to the center stage.

The acoustic set began once again with JITTERN’ JINN’s “Natsumatsuri” and solo number “evergreen,” which softly surrounded the beachside.

During the talk session, the members talked about their summertime memories. Ju-ken and JIN (keyboards) talked about their “hot” stories relating to fire, while Arimatsu talked of a happening at 4 A.M. in the summer of 2008. K.A.Z brought laughter to the crowd speaking of animal encounters back at home. HYDE ended the session speaking of bittersweet memories from his childhood.

The following tracks were acoustic versions of “THE JOLLY ROGER” and “MY FIRST LAST.” The performance of “MY FIRST LAST” was breathtaking, with the clouds floating across the night sky at a steady pace, and stars shining in the distance.

During “ZERO,” along with “DEVIL SIDE” and “EVIL,” the lighting effects continuously changed the venue’s atmosphere. After tracks “THE PAST” and “GET AWAY” continued “MEMORIES.” Prior to the song, HYDE had mentioned, “I hope you make great memories today.” This event surely must have become another great moment to remember for fans.

The distinct guitar riff of “LOVE ADDICT” began, and special guest ken appeared. With ken’s arrangement, a unique “LOVE ADDICT” was created; fans listened intently, making sure not to miss a sound. Following a brief, fun talk between ken and the members, the guitarist and the band played “HONEY” by L’Arc~en~Ciel. It was a collaboration only possible at BEAST PARTY.

The two-day event ended with “SEX BLOOD ROCK N’ ROLL” and a beautiful array of fireworks lit in the sky.
