Mari was at the opening cermony on Friday night. She had two concerts, and two panels, one of each on Saturday and one on Sunday. Each concert was followed by an autograph session.

Saturday Panel

Mari's first panel was Saturday morning. The panel was held in the pool area of the hotel. Here's a summary of what she said:


Saturday Concert

The concert was held Saturday evening. It was outside, in the pool area of the hotel where the convention was held. Mari performed nine songs, including one new song. She sang and played her keyboard for all the songs.

Mari began by singing three songs from No Limit--Everybody's Lonely, More than yesterday, and No Limit. Next she sang Deep inside of you. This is a song by Mari's favorite band, Third Eye Blind.

Next Mari performed two songs in Japanese, Cinderella and Ai Oboeteimasuka. Then she sang Happy Birthday, an excellent new English song.

Mari's next song was You flew to New York. This is a new song that Mari had only written three days before. Finally, she sang Angel's Paints.

Sunday Panel

Mari's second panel was Sunday afternoon, right before her concert. As with her other events, this was held in the pool area. Some of the questions were the same as yesterday, so I won't duplicate her answers here.

Sunday Concert

Mari had a second concert on Sunday after her panel, for people who had missed the Saturday concert. This concert was similar to the one on Saturday. Mari sang Blueberry Jam instead of No Limit and Angel's Paints.
