The concert was a great success (see @redneckotaku and @esw01407) and BACK-ON even performed both tracks from their forthcoming single: . The full set list was as follows:

  1. With you
  2. ROCKSTAR ANTHEM
  3. flyaway
  4. Sands of time
  5. SKY LINE
  6. ニブンノイチ
  7. flower
  8. BLAZE LINE
  9. Infinity
  10. TELL ME
  11. Gimme!Gimme!Gimme!
  12. Chain
  13. NEW WORLD (ENCORE)
  14. ONE STEP! (ENCORE)

This was confirmed on BACK-ON‘s blog and also by @TheRealPaper who posted a photo of it on Twitter:

It is also worth noting that a hithero unreleased track SKY LINE was also on the list, and according to Musicman-NET INFINITY is apparently a return to the band’s ROCK sound roots with ニブンノイチ being a refreshing(?)  song with a great message about overcoming problems together.

@Therealpaper also won some lovely BACK-ON memorabilia from the auction:

Many thanks to everyone who was good enough to share their work with us. A special mention must go to Ashley Hin of Anime USA, who first told us about BACK-ON‘s return to the US!

If you were at Anime USA this year, we would love to hear about your experience :)
