February Chu-Z Online Show

A look back at idol group Chu-Z's second online concert, which was live streamed worldwide on February 25th.

Chu-Z (short for 'Chaos Underground Zealot') held their second online live at Omotesando GROUND. This new monthly initiative was viewable until February 28th through the purchase of a digital ticket on ZAIKO; a solution that makes sense in these trying times brought on by COVID-19. Let's look back on their cheerful performance.

Chu-Z arrived on stage singing GIRLS ON THE RUN, one of the most popular songs from their first album Chu-Z My Music, which was released in 2014. It was an ideal pick to launch the event since the track sounds like a summer hit. The members aimed to give their best performance, embodying the spirit of the lyrics “Show me what, show me what u got.”

The next song was a rebellious one. Introduced by some bright red spotlights, the energizing track Bun Bun Towel started up. Its overture may have surprised viewers, as it featured a mix of rock and electronic music quickly followed by a rap part, though longtime fans know Chu-Z is a multi-talented group. Chu-Z has been experimenting with new music genres since its debut and knows how to blend them all together very nicely. After such an enthusiastic track, Let's Get The Party Started seemed to be the most fitting song to keep the party going with its EDM-like vibe. The stage turned into a club as the members performed an energetic dance. Each idol got a time to shine; nothing surprising for the 'ASIANZ Dancers', the name under which Chu-Z publishes choreography videos on YouTube and TikTok. Dance has always been a top priority for the group and this showcase of talent revealed that the members' efforts have paid off.

With the party successfully started, it was time for a group introduction. The interlude allowed the audience to recover from the performance's vibrant emotions. The members presented themselves in a cheerful way, taking turns. It was easy to see how close they are even from the brief interactions.

Kaede introduced the following song and, as its name implied it took fans...HIGHER. Zettai Reido Flare then took the lead with its catchy tune, though it is a much calmer track. Then, it was just the right moment for Chu-Z to reach the fans' hearts. Some English lyrics made it easy to comprehend the meaning of the song, even from abroad: "to the sky" and "we can fly, don't be shy" are some of the many lines encouraging fans to aim for higher ground. It was a genuine performance that revealed some vulnerability from both the audience and the idols.

Next, it was time for Dare yori mo kimi o suki ni naritai yo to move the audience. The soothing ballad started with a beautiful piano score which slowed down the pace of the show. Butterfly took care of the follow-up with its catchy and upbeat refrain. It was followed by I'm READY., a pop-rock track that all but guaranteed a boost of enthusiasm inside Omotesando GROUND. The song comes from the Pariro single released in 2018, which marked a turning point in the rock-inspired tracks of the group. Rock music, of course, means guitar solos, and the song lit the stage on fire.

However, all good things come to an end. Baribarinrin came as an exit song, but what a thrilling one! The group's thirteenth single was named after it when it was released in 2019, and it is absolutely understandable why it was chosen to be the title track. Baribarinrin stands out due to its incredible choreography, which was most likely inspired by "Para Para", a popular dance style that involves a lot a synchronized upper body movements. As such, Baribarinrin is meant to be a sort of uplifting crew song. Its music video captures its charm perfectly, and it is very fun to watch. What a perfect way to end this live show! Chu-Z will hold another online show on March 25th, and it will once again be viewable from overseas via ZAIKO. Tickets for the March show can be purchased here.
