At the "Mori, Michi, Ichiba 2023" GRASS STAGE held on Friday, May 26 in Gamagori, Aichi Prefecture, band members Kei Higuchi (gt), Shoko Nakamura (ba), and Takato Nagashima (dr) appeared on time, followed by Noun in a wheelchair.
As soon as she got to the vocalist's position, she said, "I have a ligament injury (sprain)! (laugh) I'm so frustrated! (lol) I'm so frustrated!

In the first song, "Mushasya," he sang with all his might, expressing such frustration, and finally howled, "Why did I damage my ligament on such a day! he barked.
Apparently, she sprained her leg while practicing for a dance she was going to perform in the video. However, NON, oblivious to her injury, sat on a chair and strummed her guitar to perform "YAMANAI GIRL" and "NAMAIKI ni SKIRT" while dancing energetically with only her upper body.
The audience had no time to worry, and the heat was turned up by Non's powerful performance.

The fourth song, "Vivid Days," composed by Kei Higuchi, who plays the banjo guitar, was sung with great emotion and "filled my heart and soaked it in," he said.
The beautiful location of Morimichi, with its ocean and sunset, and the large audience were a perfect match for the content of the song, and he was deeply moved by it.
With these feelings in mind, they continued to perform "Time Machine ni Onegai", "Kocchi wo Miteiru", and "Watashi wa Yakumitsu", and the entire GRASS STAGE got excited and had fun! It feels so good! They shouted over and over again, "This is the last song.
The next and last song was "Let all your regrets and bad feelings become a song! Let these days become a song! After the MC, NON got up from her chair and sang "Kono Hibi yo Uta ni Nare" for the finale.
The finale song "Kono Hibi yo Uta ni Nare" is the Japanese theme song for the movie "Lion Boy," which was released in dubbed Japanese on May 26 (Fri.).

She was carried on both sides of the stage by Kei Higuchi and Shoko Nakamura, who left the stage laughing and getting along well with each other.

NON then made a surprise appearance on stage with ASIAN KUNG-FU GENERATION.
She performed "Beautiful Stars," a song she created with ASIAN KUNG-FU GENERATION and Yosuke Inoue (Turntable Films).
The music video for the song was just released on May 25, the day before, along with the music video.
You can watch it on NON's official YouTube channel.
