Comcast has crappy data capped internet, to the point even Perfume's hometown of Hiroshima has better internet than the entirety of San Francisco, California, let alone Comcast HQ of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. :lol:

Did anyone wait after the show in LA? I saw the props and a van at the back of the venue when I was leaving. Didn't see anyone and did not stick around.

I'm sure if anyone did stay, they would have been escorted out of there. Saw the same thing for the BABYMETAL show the previous month and heard security saying they need to clear the fans.

I didn't bother, especially when I gave the subway train schedule highest priority.

There is no actual plans for a special encore. Just a small few suggesting and asking if there will be one. Nothing for renewing WPTA either. You get a little something if you register for a new account but the tenugui isn't all that great.

Edit: there is now going to be special encore

Tickets for the NYC shows are half off, apparently for Labor Day. I think it's more a case of "Oh shit we haven't come close to selling these dates out, we should have just done one"

^ ^ ^ I guess it is Nocchi, but I do sorta wonder if the person is a decoy, while they slip Ayano in through another door.... A ruse which is frequently used.... :)

And wouldn't a heavy backpack like that be carried by a staff member. Never seen a Perfume member be loaded up like that.... :shock:

I had never considered that :shock:

A~chan and Kashiyuka were were accompanied by a few others and Nocchi was in a separate van and when arriving, we were told not to take pics but seeing her like that, I had to get a video :? I did see Mossan before any of them appeared. If I remember correctly, he was taking a smoke break with a few others out back. My photo of him was not very good.

Ah, I really like Mossan! A real veteran from the early days! Glimpsing him briefly in the London venue in 2013 was a big thrill! :)

Forgot to mention MIKIKO was also in the van with Nocchi. She didn't get out but I could recognize her silhouette from inside the van. Some people saw her in the flesh but I always seem to miss her, even back in WT3 :? Maybe next time.

Follow-up to the Nocchi video

MIKIKO was in the control booth in the rear of the venue when the concert ended last Sunday. A lot of people were saying hi to her but she seemed uncomfortable haha

That's really bad luck! :| I have a theory that when Perfume are spotted in a public place, if MIKIKO is also present, she will make every possible effort not to be seen in the same camera shot with them. I'm guessing that she figures that they are the stars and she should not in anyway distract from them nor receive their reflected glory, and indeed that it is the essence of her job to focus attention onto them. This is usually the case with airport arrivals, as for example at Chicago Airport, I think.

That's interesting. :) Perhaps she felt she was getting some of the glory that belonged to Perfume....

Has anybody found any good quality recordings from the U.S. shows? Sound-wise, most of the videos I've seen on Youtube are pretty rough. One exception is this nice video of "Story"
