Then came on another of their heavier classic, "Kagerou". It was definitely sentimental and satisfying to listen to these songs as to mark their 10th anniversary. The crowd went wild after the song before Haruna greeted the crowd ecstatically and introduced themselves. They welcomed the crowd with warmth and expressed their joy to be in Singapore again. Ensuring the crowd was ready to rock on, they played one of their latest songs, "Sunday Drive"! The next number was "Konya wa Pizza Party" for which Tomomi led the crowd together through the song. The distinct styles brought out by Haruna and Tomomi individually was certainly one thing unique about SCANDAL!

Next up was the song "LOVE ME DO" and this number included a special segment to the concert for which a random selection of the audience had a unique photo pass that allowed them to take photos with their personal camera. Although this felt out of the blue, it was definitely a memento to the lucky winners. "Chiisana Honoo" was a song that made me feel teary at times and was certainly one of my top favourites from them!
The next number was their upcoming single this July, "Take Me Out"! A fairly amazing song coupling on with a familiar recent song, "Image" was simply perfection. "Sister" was then played and the crowd clapped along to the tune. It was commendable that the audience was still as energetic as they were from the start of this concert! Another of their top hits "SCANDAL BABY" was next. To put an end to the main segment of the show, they played "Departure".
The band came back on stage real quick after the cries of encore from the crowd and expressed that they will be back for sure before they dedicated "Your Song -English Version-" to the audience! Although the encore was shorter than the norm, it was a perfect ending to receive the final number "Taiyou Scandalous" from them! Indeed, the crowd couldn't bear to see them go but fret not, the VIP ticket holders were treated to a "high-touch" session with the band members along with a gift poster!
We would like to express our thanks to SOZO for allowing us to present to our audience a review to SCANDAL's concert.
