10月3日（月）、ドリカム・アナハイムLA追加公演に行ってきました。ダウンタウンディズニー内「ハウスオブブルース」にて、15分遅れの午後8時15分開演でした。 Dreams Come True USA Tour, Anaheim: We went to see it last Monday, October 3, 2011 at House of Blues, Anaheim in Downtown Disney. The live concert started at 8:15 pm, 15 minutes behind the schedule. Their USA tour is a part of "DWL 2011", "Dreams Come True Wonderland 2011" tour. They perform DWL tour in Japan every 4 years. Dreams Come True did the live performance in LA for the first time in 9 years.
October 1 tickets were sold out as soon as they were placed on sale on July 1, 2011. In August they added another show in Anaheim on October 3, and they were placed on sale at 10 am on August 12, 2011. I bought 2 tickets right away. At House of Blues, Anaheim, it's standing seat only. The first floor capacity is around 465. There is a secluded section with chairs on the 2nd floor for invited friends and families of the performer. It was a sell out crowds of 600 people standing, including the people on the 2nd floor.
Many ticket holders waited in line outside for more than 1 hour. If you spend more than $20 per person in the restaurant (30 to 45 minute wait) or at the bar, you could get a "Pass the Line" voucher by showing the receipt and enter the theater area without lining up outside.

The DWL 2011 Concert was: Doors opened at 7 pm. A "DWL 2011" brochure was given free to each ticket holder. The concert started at 8:15 pm.
During the first hour, they sang energetic and cheerful songs. Miwa, the vocal kept singing and dancing with AKS dancers--3 male dancers. It was so powerful. I was glad that I went to see the concert after driving 1 hour on the rush-hour freeway after work.
Miwa was wearing a soft pink silk or satin jumpsuit and pink sneakers. A gold Sequin beads belt was sewed in at the waist line. The upper back was left open.
"Traveling Carnival" is their concept for DREAMS COME TRUE WONDERLAND tour. It was so fun with singing, dancing, chatting, and solo instrumental performances throughout the concert without a break until 10 pm.
Masato Nakamura greeted the audience in English, "My name is Masa. Call me Masa. How do you do? Nice to meet you."
アンコール・コールのあと、5分後から2曲を披露。 「皆にさ～、めちゃくちゃ感謝してるよ～」と言って、 未来予想図II とLove Love Love を熱唱。
The concert ended at 10 pm. After Encore calls for 5 minutes, they reappeared on stage. Miwa said, "Everyone, I appreciate you so much" and sang two songs, "Mirai Yosouzu II" and "Love Love Love".
After introducing the band members, all of them held hands and bowed to the audience. The show ended around 10:20 pm.
Many people were still calling "Encore", then, Miwa and Masa re-appeared on the stage. Miwa sang, "I came to say Arigato (thank you) to you. Next time, we try to come back in shorter time than 9 years." to the audience.
House of Blues Anaheim's website said small personal cameras are allowed on the page for "Dreams Come True" also, but cameras were forbidden. I had to leave it at the front with $3 fee. All cell phones had to be turned off during the concert, because it might interfere with the musical instrument and devices.
