SUGIZO and INORAN are two legendary guitarists from LUNA SEA. Although they have been teammates for many years, the two have very different musical styles – SUGIZO likes a flirty yet elegant strumming of strings and has a great speed and momentum of playing. It is said that his personal works are made up of a large number of electronic elements, variation of the avant-garde psychedelic and extraordinary atmosphere. INORAN, on the other hand, has always had a crisp and unique sound, meticulously weaving his known, personal works into the strong taste of Western Rock and Roll, successfully creating a tension full of alternative Rock. The two have fought side by side for more than twenty-five years, and the finally, for the first time performing together in the field, their performance was dubbed historic.
Crowded with fans at Zepp DiverCity, SUGIZO and INORAN were welcomed with loud applause. Deep in the depths of the stage, a faint yellow light seeped through the thin layer of the curtain. On the right side appeared the huge figure of SUGIZO, a violin high-pitched sound hissed through the silence of the air as he stepped out, a sad melody that resounded through the venue. The shadow of INORAN fell on the left side of the stage, as his guitar outlined the composition of the tune. With the tune of the violin and guitar in combination with the drums, the silhouettes of the two fell onto the curtain, framing the background. As the lights suddenly brightened, the curtains fell simultaneously, revealing the two. The representation of the show as a sign of the dragon and dead bird wrapped around each other reveals the meeting of the two. The performance continues until the last note of the song falls.

Immediately after a break of playful music, the stage covered with bright light. On the ground lay a scarlet retro carpet – signalling INORAN’s start of the opening song. The opening song by INORAN made use of delicate string sounds as the backbone. As the tune spread over the warm and open background, suddenly full of light over the audience, INORAN opened his eyes. The song slowly transitioned to
As smoke, lightning-like white light and large blue light hit, SUGIZO opened the phantom world. Placed in the centre, the stringed sound in the beat could be heard, high-pitched yet sometimes husky, beginning
