    Trivia

    • The start and ending VTRs are presented by Igor, Elizabeth and Margaret in the elevator Velvet Room, done in the style of Persona 3 dialogue.
    • At the start of the concert, a cloaked figure stands in the middle of the stage while the band plays "Battle Hymn of the Soul," a song with no vocals. Once the next song starts, the cloaked figure is revealed to be Shihoko Hirata, main vocalist of Persona 4. This became the start of a trend in Persona concerts where a cloaked figure stands in the middle of a stage and is revealed to be a main vocalist from the latest released game at the time.
    • Three performances were included in one of the brand new bonus channels in Persona 4 Golden, Song Battle 2012. The songs in question are "Pursuing My True Self," "Mass Destruction" and "Reach Out to the Truth."[9]
