Love Never Dies - 君の歌をもう一度 (Til I Hear You Sing)
Tokyo, Japan March 26, 2014
(full audio available but not for trade until April 30, 2014)
Until today, these ten long years have been empty
Until today, these ten years have been truly pointless
Despite having inspiration for beautiful melodies
No one can sing them
But you alone
Ah, Christine… Now you’re far away
Although time has passed
My heart is in darkness
I can’t sleep
Until the day I hear you sing
The turning seasons disappear
And you’re still far away
The soundless days continue
Until I hear you sing
Even though I chase after the dream of you
I touch nothing but the freezing darkness
No matter the time, this pain in my chest
Won’t heal even now
Until I hear you sing
That music and that voice
Won’t leave my ears
Even though I turn around, you’re still not there
Hopes and dreams all vanish!
Now what have I become? My soul cannot be saved
Until I hear you sing
I love it when roadtophantom sends cool stuff my way ;)

Okay so I really want to see the sequel, love never dies, but it’s not really playing anymore at least not in the US
So is there somewhere I can watch a video of it or something?
Love Never Dies has never had a production in the US. It has had productions in London, Australia, Denmark, a concert in Austria, and an upcoming one in Japan. The Australian production filmed their production and released it on DVD. That’s probably the easiest option for you, as you can buy it virtually anywhere DVDs are sold. It’s also been uploaded in its entirety on YouTube, such as here. Or you can torrent it.
For the London production, there have been two released bootlegs. You can either download them here (scroll to the bottom of the post) or watch it on YouTube. This version is missing ‘Beneath a Moonless Sky’ and ‘Once Upon Another Time’. Full video of the show has been released, but it is a monitor video, meaning it was shot from the theater camera in the back and has no zooms. I don’t think it’s been uploaded in its entirety like the others, but you can see the scenes missing from the other bootleg here. The London production underwent some changes partway through its run, and though no full video has been released of the show after the changes, you can see some clips here and here.
In terms of the other productions, the Denmark production and Vienna concert has had bootleg audios floating around. The Vienna concert has two videos that I know of, but neither are likely to be on YouTube.

I apologize for the sound quality but my phone’s microphone won’t allow anything better. Best listened to with headphones.
Love Never Dies OLC Beneath a Moonless Sky (Full) and Once Upon a Time.
Ramin Karimloo and Sierra Boggess sings Beneath A Moonless Sky from Love Never Dies.
With Kaga Takeshi as the Phantom (double cast), Ayabuki Mao as Meg Giry (also double cast), and Ootori Ran and Konju Tatsuki in the double cast of Madam Giry as well! Lots of OGs! ^^
Wait wait. I need a moment.
Takeshi Kaga as in Chairman Kaga of the Iron Chef fame and original Japanese Valjean?
Masachika Ichimura as in the early Japanese Phantom who also voiced Red XIII in Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children and Mewtwo?
And Keita Tachibana of the Jpop band w~inds as Raoul?
And all those former Takarazuka members??
I’ve never wanted to see Love Never Dies so badly in my life.
Let us also appreciate the age-gap here (60 year old Phantoms vs 20-30 year olds Christine and Raoul).
