Gackt is "himself". Different from other music acts in Japan, and eastern Asia. His concerts are different because has a concept, or a real story and novel behind them. He's not just "doing" a live, but putting himself into this fictional figures (especially in RR series) or how wants audience to see him. So his concerts can be divided into two types: Storical and Publical, and on both of them he's playing mostly different songs. Then if he has a Moon Project concert he won't play songs from RR or others, and vice versa. Also if he's doing just a "random" ones, like Drug Party or Yellow Fried Chickenz, different songs could be played, which of course go with the theme of concert. Comments under said all correct. Scenography is very well. Camera motion is very good, sound is very good and music sound very well also. Could be noticed that his voice sound stronger, a bit different, actually every year is a bit different. Perhaps is not a born singer and because of this his voice with aging and habbit change. Or is doing some lip-syn, voice correction (both mehanically and phisically). As every his concert, is divided into two parts. First one which potrais his concept and could be more called a performance, and second one where could be called just a normal live where's interacting with audience. So in comparison to others acts and more usual concerts where you have from beginning to end almost the same theme, atmosphere, here it is not and to some could be a bit strange, disappointed or get bored. Introduction was with "Noah", while real live opening was quiet excellent, the sound and ritm of "Doomsday" incredible, some time not heard. Following 4th and especially 5th performance a bit too pushed, while 6th and especially 7th performance being the best part of the whole concert, outstanding and different. Between 7th and 8th performance seems something was cut. "Lapis" is a sad, but beautiful song. After is "normal" live, a bit to say boring since are normal popish songs, only four latest songs are very good. All in all, for me this is one of his best concerts, along "Requiem et Reminiscence II" which is a total different category compared to older ones, and "Drug Party" (fanclub only event and DVD). Others have some more minuses, be his appearance, voice, songs, atmosphere, scenography etc.

Kagen no Tsuki -- although filled with interesting choreography, brilliant light/rain effects, and an impressive set list -- falls a LITTLE short in comparison to some of Gackt's other concerts (in my opinion). The overall setup of the concert was slightly random as it focused on Gackt's MOON project AND Christmas (which is later revealed in the second half with the crew of dancing/singing Santas). The extras in the second disc were lack-luster as well -- consisting only of Gackt fans giving their thanks. However, on the brighter side, it seems since Requiem et Reminiscence (my personal favorite), his voice has gotten considerably stronger and more controlled. Some highlights of the show have to be his amazing performances of Rain, DOOMSDAY, and the oh-so-sexual, Fragrance (just to name a few). Overall, it was a good concert that further proves that Gackt is, in fact, an amazing artist with a voice and vision that can never be surpassed. Recommended for those who love his MOON album, enjoy the fanservice (who doesn't?), or simply wish to add to their growing collection of Gackt goods.
This is a good Gackt concert. Quite entertaining to watch, beautiful voice, and some visuals as well. No, not visual kei, but things like masked dancers and some fanservice (kisses!). ^-^ Picture quality's great, sound quality is great as well. DVD1 is a little over 90 minutes. DVD2 is the last 30 minutes of the same concert. I don't regret buying this at all! ^-^
This tour is a must-have. It's amazing, as always we can expect the best performances from Gackt. I can never be disapointed in him!
Wow...this live tour is one of his best. Or maybe I should say...all Gackt's live tours are the best ever from MARS to DIABOLOS tour (and also Training Drug Live in Korea 2006). Gackt never fails to give the best of him in his lives. He started his performance with Doomsday and followed by great songs and energetic such as Deathwish, Luna and etc. Gackt is one of the best musician, performer, singer. Most of his live tours are worth-buying! I never regret buying Gackt's Lives Tour DVDs.
