SM TOWN LA 2010;  
September 4th 2010; LA Staples Center

Let me start off by saying that this concert was by far the greatest concert I have ever had the pleasure of attending, and it was also the best day of my life so far♥

Thank you SMENT for giving me the greatest gift ever T__T

& now for the good stuff


So, I flew in the morning of the concert, such a long and tiring flight ;__; Once I got there I was wide awake, though! The super shuttle I took from LAX to the hotel was stuffed with 10 of us, and I suddenly heard one of the girls near me say something about a fanmeet. I started side eying her, and eventually I got the guts to ask them if they were going to SM Town. Turns out 9 out of the 10 of us were going to the concert! So we all exchanged information, and spazzed the whole van ride.

I finally make it to the hotel, and kehleejay arrives not too long after I do, and we made our way to the Soshified meet up, which was so organized♥ Soy and the rest of the crew did a great job coming up with activities and such for the meet up! There was pink pink pink everywhere~ When we got there they were practicing the fanchants. We got our support kits, and wandered the meet for a little bit. They gave out some awesome prizes for the raffle as well. I wish we could have gotten there earlier! After that we went over to the Koreaboo meet up, which was packed with every fan group! There were dance offs, and singing competitions (YEAH, I'M STARING AT YOU kikwangs !), and just straight up shenanigans. kehleejay and I were so hyper, I know we made fools of ourselves. Doing random bits of dances (ie; sorry sorry, RDD, Abracadabra, Genie, etc). I tried to do the Lucifer tutting with my arms and hands filled with my SNSD goodies. I didn't get to do it in my full glory. I must say, our Genie leg kicks were by far the best. k.

Before I move onto the concert, Mel...>.> I need to confess. I got so excited that you joined the singing competition that I recorded you with my phone. LOL, I'M SORRY. /hides

THE CONCERT;

I'll have all the pictures and fancams at the end of this post for all those who are too impatient to read everything xD all pictures are resized to be nice to layouts, just right click; view image to see actual size!

SHINee;
I finally got to see a proper set from my loves♥ I was cheated when I saw them at KMF in 2009, and this concert made up for it. They performed (not in order); Stand By Me, Replay, Juliette, Get Down, Ring Ding Dong, Up & Down, Quasimodo, Lucifer, and The Name I Loved (Onew & Ryeowook). There was also a few other collabs between SHINee/Suju, and Key and Boa as well. The second Onew delivered the mic during Kangta's stage, shit got real. It sunk in that very second that I was at SM Town, and SHINee was fucking there. My heart exploded. They were absolutely amazing, stunning, perfect. Jonghyun seemed a little tired, and it took him a song or two to warm up. You can tell they had all been resting their voices the past week though. Onew was 110%, no joke. He was on point, and sounded a lot better than the Seoul concert. Quasimodo was easily their best performance of the night. Could that have been any more breathtaking? I don't think so. Jonghyun, oh.my.god. He hit those power notes like I had anticipated. I was silently sobbing to myself during this performance, and the goosebumps were never ending. Also hearing Onew sing The Name I Loved live was just too perfect. Too wonderful. I felt like time had completely stopped, everyone disappeared, and all I saw was Onew in the middle of that spotlight. The emotion he puts into his singing is so beautiful, I could watch him sing forever. Part of me wishes I hadn't of recorded the performance of Lucifer just so I could have danced along with them. I WOULD HAVE BEEN A TUTTING MACHINE >8]

At one point Kelly practically shoved me down the stairs so I could go get closer to the boys. So I booked down the stairs and watched a good chunk of Replay from down there, and omfg Key and I had eye contact...omkjbkjshdv idek. I was literally about 10 feet from them. WHAT. I died inside, and tripped up the stairs...but I didn't fall. >.> omg, I could go on and on about SHINee, but I wont. Just know they are some of the most amazing performers, and until you see them live you won't ever experience their full charm. They are perfection in my eyes.

SNSD;
Oh, these beautiful, stunning, flawless girls! I was so excited to see them again ;___; Sunny is so tiny in person. They all are, but especially Sunny. I was most excited to see them perform Oh! and Genie, and they did not disappoint! Their outfits for Genie were so perfect. The legs on those girls~ THEY DID HIMNAE. MY LIFE IS COMPLETE. omfg. I kind of didn't expect it for some reason? Once the music started for it, I freaked. I took a fancam, but I was so excited it is kind of...not worth posting? \: Anyway, I wish Jessica and Krystal had performed a different song together, just because Ke$ha is a huge DNW. They were cute together though. Everyday my love for Yuri grows more and more, and she was so beautiful on Saturday♥ Though, the second I saw Fany...omfg. My heart~ I love that girl. Guuuuh, idk what else to say about them...but they were phenomenal. Gorgeous, sweet, amazing baby~

Super Junior;
FINALLY. FINALLY I GOT TO SEE SUJU LIVE♥ It only took years. I actually never thought I would get to see them live, ngl. It happened though, and I could have cried I was so overjoyed. They did so many songs I wanted to see live! Their best performance was definitely Don't Don with TRAX and Changmin. OH, THE EPICNESS OF THAT PERFORMANCE. It was a rock remix, and they nailed it. Changmin was the perfect added touch for the vocals, I can't even get over how amazing he sounded. Watching them all rock out was too perfect as well. GUUUUH, and they did A Man In Love, which is a song I have been wanting to see live since the very first time they ever performed it. The dance breakdown was so amazing, I can't even...omg. Just...omg. Their Sorry Sorry remix was so...sexy. unf. I loved how it started and then ended up transitioning into the original.

At one point Siwon was practically shirtless, and kehleejay started perving and yelled out "YEAAAAH, SIWON!" I could only laugh, it was hilarious♥ Speaking of Siwon; "GOD BLESS YOU ALL~!" idek...he said it about 4 or 5 times that night. Oh, Siwon~! OMFG, Henry's violin performance was outstanding. I think I almost flew over the chairs in front of us when I saw him on stage with his sexed up violin. Before the concert I had said "I want a Henry violin solo." AND I GOT ONE. Then Heechul came out and performed with him, and it was so epic. The crazed laughter and flailing at the end by Heechul...it was a tad cray cray♥ OMFG AND DANCING OUT♥ BSDHJBVAJSDBVKJ. SO MUCH FUN. IDEK. They put on a spectacular show as expected.


f(x);
These girls are definitely impressive live. I was sad Amber is still MIA, but they did great even without her. Minho came out and did Amber's rap during A chA TA and the crowd went insane (of course)! Luna is for serious a powerhouse. The vocals on that girl are insane! Her duet with Zhoumi was so fantastic♥ She was so adorable in her pink dress, and he looked so handsome. They worked well together. They performed all their singles, and NU ABO was my favorite performance easily. I love that song and the dance, and it was so fun live. Sulli is so beautiful in person~ omg. They weren't on stage that often, so I don't have much to talk about...but they were amazing and I am so glad I got to see them live! They had a really good response too, which made me happy. I know they are still gaining fans, so I was worried there wouldn't be that many people cheering for them.

HoMin;
Okay, so...these two took me by surprise. I was blown away by them! Ngl, I kind of expected them to do long, boring, typical DBSK ballads, but they didn't! They did a DBSK medley of some of the popular, upbeat singles. As soon as I heard Mirotic start playing I freaked. They are such amazing performers. I swear Changmin's voice got even better, and I didn't really think that were possible. I had to laugh at the way they started their stage, hanging from the ceiling all Jesus like? Was that Siwon's idea? There was a moment when kehleejay and I looked at eachother like "OH SHIT!", and that was when they said "We are DBSK." They sounded bitter, as expected. I just was thrown back that they had actually said it. I applaud it.

BoA;
This woman♥ She is a performer from her head to her toes, inside and out. She was absolutely amazing, and I'm so happy I could finally see her live. I was so excited that she performed My Name. That was my favorite song of hers for so long! Hurricane Venus was so much fun! Girl worked it~! She is stunning, and she was wearing this skimpy sequin outfit that was just so perfect on her. She made it look good. When she did her ballad, I had such goosebumps it was insane. Her voice is just...idek. In person it's even stronger, and when she hit those power notes I was beyond amazed. WTF, SHE PERFORMED DANGEROUS, FUCK YEAH! That was pure sex. She was pure sex.

TRAX WERE AMAZING. K. GUITAR SOLO. SEX. NKJNAJNLN♥ too tired to say anything else.

All in all; best fucking concert ever. I would give so much to see it again. It was more than worth all the money I paid for that weekend, and the 30+ hours of no sleep.

파니robotiques on September 11th, 2010 06:56 pm (UTC)
Re: asking..
I used my Sony Cybershot DSC-H10 for pictures and videos actually. They told us we weren't allowed to bring any DSLRs in, but a ton of people did...as long as the lense wasn't longer than 3.5 inches.

Hi there,

sorry if this is strange, but I found your fan account through SFI forums. I'm actually in the process of making an SM Town LA chronicle/discussion post at Omonatheydidnt, and I'm wondering if it's fine I use some of your photos. I'll keep the watermark, reupload to my own account, and relink back to this post, which I hope to get posted by today.

Sorry if this is rather abrupt, but I've been working on this post for an extraordinary amount of time, and I'd really like to submit it today, but unfortunately, I only discovered this today! @_@ feel free to let me know if you want me to remove it though, after the post goes through, but honestly some of your SHINee photos are the best I've seen from the concert, so I wanted to include them. Hope that's fine!

Sorrry it took so long to reply! I'm in Korea right now, so I haven't been checking my email, but yeah, that's totally fine if you use/link my stuff! :D Thank you for asking ^^

and thank you xD I tried really hard to get some decent ones.
