OFFER enjoying the music world by Junior Respati, executive summary by darmansjah

Around 3000 spectators prancing and singing. Without command, they shout the lyrics of the song to the rhythm tone available. Gestures they were so loose. There are thumbs towards the stage while holding a smart phone to record the action the singer is also not small. In fact,
once the euphoria among the crowd, there are tears. Sad mingled happily.

I was getting late in the middle of the audience of music. My feeling was carried in the party. This is the chance I enjoy long numbers belonging Oasis - British band - at Tokyo Dom City Hall. Although the song hit the era of the 2000s were performed by Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds, I'm still down with thousands of spectators.

The party began to noisily when Noel Gallgher-band leader and also the spirit of Oasis-say, "This is the day where we can sing together again. So, let's sing! Wonderwall song playing. Audience was hysterical.

I really have fallen in love with these venues. Although much smaller extent, this place still has two advantages compared to the Tennis Indoor -which is often the scene of music performances in Singapore. First, better acoustics. Second, the hall was named the official JCB Hall is noticeably warmer and intimate between the artist and the audience.

Top reasons why I believe the place is near Akihabara station is often chosen as the venue for the band's first time overseas to try Japanese stage. For the viewer carve enthusiasm of the audience in a more compact would be much easier. Thus, they can more freely set the mood performances. I give an example: Hatsune Miku, a Japanese vocal star whose name is two years, AKB 48 Japanese vocal group that has 48 personnel, to the old Japanese band Dir en Grey. This place was chosen as the host concerts flamboyant rock star Lenny Kravitz in April.

I was often amused when a colleague who had exchanged information when talking about the Tokyo Dome. Tokyo Dome City Hall is a hall located in Tokyo.

Dome City, an entertainment complex located at the Bunkyoku. Incidentally entertainment complex is also linked to the Tokyo Dome, the largest indoor baseball world which is often dubbed the Big Egg.

Tokyo Dome City Hall (originally JCB Hall) is a sport, fashion show, circus, and live music hall located in Tokyo, inside of Tokyo Dome City. It is on the opposite corner of the Tokyo Dome, and has a variety of events at any given time, including Boxing and live concerts. The hall was purchased by the Japan Credit Bureau (JCB), a Credit Card Company, and it opened on March 19, 2008.

The building, also known as Mitsupoto (Meets Port) hall, is a commercial arts facility. JCB Hall is the underground portion of the Mitsupoto complex, and it is the primary location for most of the larger events that take place live. It is host to the Animax Anison Grand Prix anime song music competition.

Although most of the sporting events take place at the Tokyo Dome, the JCB Hall is considered one of the primary spots in Tokyo Dome City for smaller scale sporting events, like Boxing, wrestling and some mixed martial arts. It also is going to be the future site of most small scale circuses. There are also a variety of food choices available on multiple floors of the complex.
