続けて、Lay Phyuのこと書くなんて思わなかったよ。

だって。

マ、マジっすか~っ!

ついこの前だってLay Phyuのことを検索していて、このサイトの記事を読んだのに、同じサイトのイベント欄に来日公案内が載っていたなんて!

いずれにせよ、今度の日曜日の話。
もうチケットSold Outかも~。。。。

でも、特等席で10,000円、1階8,000円、2階7,000円(←どの席も設定価格高っ!)だから、まだ余っているかも・・・・。

と思いつつも、どこに連絡すればチケット買えるんだろ?

このサイトには主催とか問い合わせ関係の案内が掲載されてないし。。。。
Mixiのミャンマー関連コミュを見ても来日公演のこと一切書かれてないし。。。。

ということで、とりあえず会場の北とぴあに連絡。

「あ~、そんな催しものがありましたね~、でもこちらでは、チケットの件はまったくわかりません」とバッサリ 💦

万事休す・・・?
いや、このサイトの管理人にコンタクトを取ってみれば、教えてくれるかも。幸いメールアドレスもあるし。

ということで、管理人さんに最後の望みをかけてメールすると、チケットが買えそうな場所を教えてくれた返事があっさり返ってきました!

管理人さん、ありがとうございマス~!

早速昨日、チケット買ってきました。

場所は、高田馬場駅前にあるミャンマー雑貨店「ゴールデンイーグル」
雑居ビル8階にあるのですが、在日ミャンマー人らしき若者がビル入り口でたむろしていたので、スグわかりました(笑)

お店で伺うと、特等席は売切れ(このお店では、ということだと思うけど)、1階と2階は販売しているとのこと。
なので、1階で座席指定の席を2枚、いただきました。16,000円ナリ。


手作り感満載のIron Crossチケット

ただ、これで一安心ではなく、お店のご主人が言うには、

「日本の入管でストップかけられたら入国できないから、その時は公演中止ね」

ってことで、ノートを取り出して自分が買った席の番号を控え、名前と電話番号を書かされました。

何それ?

日本での受入れ側が日本のプロモーターでなくて、在日ビルマ人主催だから?
日本で不法就労したり、オーバーステイする恐れがあるとか?(笑)

いずれにせよ、問題なく入国できれば念願のLay Phyu()です。

会場に行くと、周りはきっと在日ビルマ人だらけなんだろうな~。
しかもビルマ人、熱そう・・・(笑)

・・・・、とここまで書いておきながら・・・・。

なぜ、Iron Cross日本公演の案内を見逃してしまったか?

それは、以前、Lay Phyuで検索している中でこの記事を読んだからに違いない。

I will no longer perform live, says Lay Phyu

• By Kyaw Kyaw Tun

Lay Phyu says he will no longer perform live now that he is 40.

FINALLY, the rumours have been confirmed; Iron Cross lead singer, Lay Phyu, will no longer be making live performances with the band.

Despite assurances from Iron Cross’s management, that the singer would be reappering on stage soon, Lay Phyu told the Myanmar Times last week, “I made up my mind to stop performing on stage when I turn 40.” That was on May 19, and true to his word, the singer has not been seen performing live since then.

The only exception being a concert to mark Iron Cross’s 15th anniversary on August 19.
“We don’t have any personal problems among us (the band) and there are no other reasons besides this. Simply I don’t want to do stage performances any more so I can give more time to recording albums in the studio. That’s all,” he said.

“Making monthly live performances took up too much of my time,” Lay Phyu said.

“It takes away time which could otherwise be spent in the studio recording, so, I will never do a stage performance again,” he said decisively.

Although he will not be making any more stage performances with the band, Lay Phyu said he will still continue recording with Iron Cross.

“I will work with Iron Cross for all my albums,” he said.

Lay Phyu is currently working on two projects; a group covers album, alongside his younger brother Ange and another Iron Cross singer , as well as the singer’s third solo album, exclusively of new original music.

“The group album is nearly finished,” he revealed.

“We just have to name it.

“But my new solo album is a long way away.”

Both albums are being recorded at PTL Studio, which is owned by Iron Cross guitarist . Lay Phyu has recorded 11 solo albums with Iron Cross since1993, including Kandara Lamin (Desert Moon) in 1993, Kabar Thit Tay (New World Song) in 1996, Thar Kaung (Prey) in 1998 and Leik Pyar (Butterfly) in 2003.

He has performed live with the band consistently since 1993, including on tours to Singapore, the US, Japan and Malaysia.

Lay Phyu’s decision not to perform live with the band any more will not be welcomed by the group’s fans.

“I believe that no IC concert is complete without Lay Phyu,” said one teenage fan at the band’s concert at the Strand Hotel in October.

But another fan said he was relieved to hear that at least the singer had not split completely with the band.

“I am delighted to hear that Iron Cross and Lay Phyu didn’t split and Lay Phyu’s next albums will be released with Iron Cross,” the fan said.

The Myanmer Times

そうそう、Lay Phyuは、アルバムの作成活動は継続するけど、ライブ活動を停止しちゃったんだ、残念だな~、って思ったキオクがありました。

ところが、どうやらサイクロン被害がきっかけで復帰していたようです。

Lay Phyu Makes a Comeback

By THE IRRAWADDY     FEBRUARY, 2009 – VOLUME 17 NO.1

Lay PhyuThe good news for Burma’s music scene is that popular rock star Lay Phyu is back in the spotlight. Lay Phyu’s comeback performance with his backing band, Iron Cross, has been booked for in late January and is sure to be a sellout. The enigmatic rock star mysteriously walked out on the band in 2006 after a concert celebrating the 15th anniversary of the band’s founding. He reappeared in August last year at a Cyclone Nargis fundraising relief concert, but has never explained why he stopped performing for two years. Lay Phyu’s new album, Bay of Bengal, has hit the top of the Burmese charts, which he has dominated for years. On several previous albums, Lay Phyu sang cover versions of foreign tunes with Burmese lyrics. Later, songwriters—including composer Maung Maung Zaw Latt—helped free him from his reliance on popular heavy metal bands such as Metallica. Lay Phyu has since produced four albums of original songs, winning critical acclaim and wide public support.

そりゃ、Lay Phyu(Iron Cross)がコンサート開けば、ミャンマー人は大喜びだろうな~。
いろいろ調べて見ると、3月末には、Bangkokでも公演したようです。

In this Iron Cross Live Concert Bangkok, Myanmar famous singers: Lay Phyu, Ah Nge, Myo Gyi, Y Wine, Sone Thin Par and Gyoe Gyar performed. However, over 300 Iron Cross fans were arrested by the Thai Immigration Police before the show started because of not having Migrant Worker Permit ID. Myanmar famous Singer, Lay Phyu and other singers were also inspected by the immigration police officers because of not having performance permit on their visa status. Therefore, the Iron Cross Music Show could started late at 9:30 PM instead of 7 PM. This is the very first trip for Iron Cross to Bangkok and it made Iron Cross inconvenient. The Iron Cross Music Concert was ended with Lay Phyu before 11 PM because Thai police officers allowed the concert till 11 PM.

実際に開催されたコンサートは、300人ほどのビルマ人不法就労者を逮捕することになって、7時から11時の予定が、9時半~11時になってしまったようです。トホホ。

いずれにせよ、今後見る機会が無いだろうと思われたLay Phyuのコンサート(4時間も!)、楽しみだな~。
まだファンになって日が浅いのに、こんなチャンスが巡ってきてラッキーだよな~。
