[Concert Review] The Last Rockstars Fly High in Debut Concert Final Stop in LA

On February 10, super rock group The Last Rockstars finished off their debut tour in LA with a sold-out show at the Hollywood Palladium. The concert was both live and available for global livestream via the Veeps app.

The concert opened up with the all-woman band Band-Maid hyping up the crowd with a 20-minute set.

After Band-Maid’s performance, we waited in burning anticipation for The Last Rockstars to take the stage.

The Last Rockstars delivered an electrifying performance. The band took the stage to thunderous applause, and from the very first note, they had the crowd in the palm of their hand.

Lead singer Hyde’s powerful vocals soared throughout the venue, commanding everyone's attention. The guitar riffs from Sugizo and Miyavi were nothing short of amazing, and the thundering beats from drummer Yoshiki kept the energy level high.

The band played songs including "Messiah," "Shine” and "Psycho Love.” The band played covers of their own individual songs such as Hyde's "6 or 9" Miyavi's "Bang" and X Japan's Born to be Free,  L’arc-En-Ciel's "Honey" and the crowd was singing along and dancing along to every song.

The rockers showed off their musical diversity while Sugizo did a violin solo and a guitar duet with Miyavi and Yoshiki performed both a drum and piano solo.

It was an unforgettable night of rock and roll, and one that the fans will surely remember for a long time. The band says that they will return one day, so let’s anticipate the next time we can meet!
