Momoiro Clover Z hold a special Valentine event as a public recording for their radio show
On February 11th, Momoiro Clover Z's special event, titled "Momoiro Clover Z Momoclo Club xoxo ~Valentine DE NIGHT Dah~Z!", was held at Tokyo International Forum Hall A.
This special event was a public recording live concert for their radio show "Momoiro Clover Z Momoclo Club xoxo", which is aired every Sunday night on Nippon Broadcasting System. As it was a special event for Valentine's day, the members said at the press conference held before the event, "We will show our cuteness, which we don't usually show."
The venue was filled with feverish excitement even before the event started, and the audience cheered while a video clip for their latest single "Saraba, Itoshiki Kanashimi-tachi yo" played before the members appeared. When the opening theme "overtune" began playing, the audience became even more feverish, and the five members appeared from the audience seats while receiving loud cheers.
During the opening MC, Yoshida Hisanori, the announcer of the Nippon Broadcasting System who's known as "Gobo" among the members and their fans, joined the girls as the host. With Yoshida's MC, they had a segment, "Oshiete Momoclo Sensei!", in which the members give advice to the listeners. There was a question asking, "What kind of impressions are you good at?", and to answer the question, member Tamai Shiori mimicked Rola. During the corner, special guest Matsumura Kunihiro, a mimic talento, made a surprise appearance. Matsumura gave a mimic lecture to the members for Beat Takeshi, Takanohana, Nishida Toshiyuki, Sakai Masato, and Nakao Akira. At the end of the corner, the members and Matsumura showed Beat Takeshi's "Comanechi" gag together.
The next was a live segment in which Momoclo performed some unit songs and solo songs. After the performances, the members looked back on their live concert at Yokohama Arena "Momoclo Haru no Ichidaiji 2012 Yokohama Arena Masaka no 2DAYS ' Momoclo☆All Stars 2012'" held last spring when they performed their unit song for the first time. While they were talking about the concert, leader Momota Kanako brought up her grudge toward Yoshida announcer. That day, Yoshida sneaked into Momoclo's dressing room, and he took Momota's favorite stretch mat to give to the radio listener as a present. As revenge, Momota brought Yoshida's favorite bicycle, which Yoshida has been using since his student days, on the stage and said it would be given to a listener of "Momoclo Club xoxo" as a present. Yoshida accepted to give it away with sorrow in the end.
In the middle of the event, the members challenged a radio drama for the first time. The title was "Kanako ga Kieta Hi (lit. "The day Kanako disappeared")" It was a youthful drama centering around Momota, who said she would refuse to appear on a radio show, since she can't read Kanji. As the conclusion of the story, the girls performed a cover of Matsutoya Yumi's masterpiece "Valentine's RADIO". They revealed that they visited Matsutoya's live concert. According to Momoclo, when they told Matsutoya that they would cover her song, she gave advice to them saying, "The rhythm of the song is difficult, so you should just perform in high spirits." They also included a dance which was created with inspiration from Matsutoya's live in the choreography for the cover song.
After the drama, the Momoclo members exited the stage. Then there was a talk segment by Yoshida announcer, and after that, "Momoclo Club Noushuku-ban", a digest of the history of the radio program, was played.
Soon after, the five members appeared again with a different costume and performed three songs: "Saraba, Itoshiki Kanashimi-tachi yo", "D' no Junjo", and "Pinky Jones" without a break. They livened up the audience by calling out to them and ended the live with two more songs "Otome Sensou" and "Roudou Sanka." However, the heated atmosphere of the audience did not get any cooler as they started the encore calls right away, which brought the members on the stage once again. Then the girls performed another two songs "Mouretsu Uchuu Koukyoukyoku Dai Nana Gakusho 'Mugen no Ai'" and "Ano Sora e Mukatte". After that, Sasaki Ayaka said to the audience, "I think Momoclo and radio are a good match. Though it was the first time for us to hold a public recording at such a big venue like this, we were able to talk as usual, and I believe we were able to show you radio and live that are both Momoclo's strong points. We were happy to spend an early Valentine's day with you all!"
The members then held each other's hands and gave a deep bow to the audience, ending their 3-hour event.
This public recording event will be aired in two parts on February 17th and 24th in the "Momoclo Club xoxo."
