Chinese Football and By The End of Summer China Tour Wrap Up Article
It’s a freezing cold night on New Year’s Eve in Wuhan, part of emo bands Chinese Football (China) and By The End of Summer (Japan) joint three date tour in China entitled Come Together Tri-Cities Tour. Even though it was a cold night, VOX Livehouse in Wuhan was totally overwhelmed by the audience’s enthusiasm. The other two stops were Ola Art Center (Nanjing) and Yuyintang (Shanghai). The tour was organized at the behest of Chinese Football who invited By the End of Summer, a band whose members are all in their 20’s, to come experience China for their first tour here.
Below is feedback from three different fans from the three cities the bands performed in:
# 嗷嗷嗷 # from Nanjin：
“There were about 600+ people who filled the entire floor. The show began with By the End of Summer…and I thought their entire performance was even more electrifying than when they played in their home country of Japan. They had done such a great job that night that even though there were very few people who knew the band, they couldn’t contain themselves and kept screaming along with the boys on stage.
I have seen Chinese Football played so many times, yet they never fail to make me want to move.”
#玉米# from Wuhan:
“Only when you move right up close to the stage to watch these bands can you feel the energy and emotions of the music. I really like moving my body to their chords and drums and actually, I just can’t stop. This time their was even more interaction from the audience like grabbing the microphone, stage-diving…I really wanted to join them. Next time make sure you come up to the front! Go watch them play!”
#中正howl# from SHANGHAI:
“I quite like Chinese Football’s latest two songs. During the whole show, band members were all in high spirits. Not only from the music or performance, I could feel that they put a lot of thought into it and made the show feel like an intense relay race. The cohesion of the instruments, breaks in between songs, smoothness and their chords…all of it was so smooth that it felt like floating in the clouds or watching running water.”
