Interview ! HYDE [VAMPS] North America Tour Vol.4 Canada



──We heard this North America Tour is the first to perform in Canada for you.

HYDE:Oh, we’re performing in Canada. We heard that it will be “a tour like the one with SIXX:A.M.” so I totally thought we won’t be performing in Canda LOL. Canada! Sounds great. “♪Lo-ve letter fro-m Ca-na-da-” (suddenly singin an oldie). A Canadian told me that not many people know this song

──I bet they don’t LOL

HYDE:Even for Japanese living in Canada that is. I asked, “do you you live in Canada because you heard this song?” but they told me, “actually Japanese living in Canada don’t know that song”.

──You didn’t seriously ask that right LOL?

HYDE:Well, half kidding half serious LOL.

──That’s good LOL. Have you ever been to Canada?

HYDE:I have, several times. Been to see the Olympics. It was right when L’Arc〜en〜Ciel did “BLESS” theme song for NHK Vacouver Olympics / Paralympics 2010.

──We heard the people you met at the time were very kind.

HYDE:Well it’s always listed high in the “coziest-place-to-live ranking”, and I like the architecture as well. Kinda old but very cute and beautiful. I couldn’t help but think it must be a nice city.

──Canada has given birth to many big-name artists such as Celine Dion, Neil Young, Archade Fire or Bryan Adams, and since there are French oriented areas, it feels like live shows will be easier to hold compared to mainland US.

HYDE:I feel it’s similar to the US. But the people seem to be nice in Canada.

──Canadian pork is good. Also, salmon.

HYDE:Wow. I eat pork. I love it. I stop by Toronto to get me some pork dishes. Let’s eat pork and salmon in Toronto. LOL

──Do people use the bus for their main commuters?

HYDE:The bus! (←talking as if he’s rapping)
