SID
As the time came for the big visual kei bands to perform, first on the list was SID. Vocalist MAO appeared on the MOON stage as his fans screamed his name. After some of the famous SID numbers like Uso, V.I.P, and Natsukoi, MAO said “Now I would like to sing this song with respect and appreciation to LUNA SEA”. He took a deep breath and began singing LUNA SEA’s famous ballad, “I for You”. RYUICHI joined him on stage for the second half and finished the song with MAO.
