Summary: A huge concert is coming to Odaiba! And Kari really wants to go, but she can't afford it. Can TK or Davis help out? And will they get involved in offbeat shenanigans along the way? (I think we ALL know the answer to that)


The Rock Show: Part 1


It was a quiet day in Odaiba and that gave twelve-year-old Kari Kamiya a sense of relief. After everything that's transpired over the last few months, it was the best she could hope for. Sitting up in her room, Kari was just hoping to enjoy some time to herself. And with her companion, Gatomon, in the Digital World, Kari would have plenty of alone time.

With the house being so quiet, Kari went for her radio and tried to find something to listen to. There seemed to be nothing but commercials on every station, so she just set it on one station, waiting for something to come on. And that's when she heard something that got her full attention.

'It's the concert the entire world's been waiting for! You've never seen anything like this! For one time only, MTV is taking a live concert overseas with the TRL International Tour! After touring North America and Europe, the TRL International Tour is ready to come across Japan starting January 25th in Odaiba! Come see Green Day, Sum-41, Blink 182, Alien Ant Farm, No Doubt, and many more! Including special guests…U2! Tickets WILL go fast! So get yours before they're all gone!'

Kari felt her world come crashing down. She had always admired the music of U2 and she was the first one in line when their latest album went on sale. This was one concert that she definitely didn't want to miss for anything in the world. But there was one problem.

Kari had no money. She was flat broke. It looked like she was completely out of luck.

Now feeling depressed, Kari turned off her radio and laid back on her bed.


Twelve-year-old TK Takaishi rubbed his wrist painfully again. It was a few days since he got that tight pair of handcuffs off his wrist, in a moment he ABSOLUTELY didn't care to remember.* But he knew why it happened.

He had messed up big time with Kari. Kari had always been his best friend, but lately TK had been starting to feel…more for her. And TK knew why. It wasn't until Kari started to pay more attention to Davis Motomiya that TK started to realize he had feelings for her. But over the last few months, TK realized that he was becoming less and less like himself…and more like Davis. And that nearly strained his friendship with Kari. Now TK found himself just trying to keep from doing anything that would mess things up further.

It pained him to think about it, so he decided to just forget about it and relax. And the best way for TK to relax would be through music. So TK turned his radio on, finding nothing but commercials. But that's when he stumbled onto something.

'It's the concert the entire world's been waiting for! You've never seen anything like this! For one time only, MTV is taking a live concert overseas with the TRL International Tour! After touring North America and Europe, the TRL International Tour is ready to come across Japan starting January 25th in Odaiba! Come see Green Day, Sum-41, Blink 182, Alien Ant Farm, No Doubt, and many more! Including special guests…U2! Tickets WILL go fast! So get yours before they're all gone!'

TK's ears were burning. He started to remember something. He remembered Kari being one of the first people in line to get U2's new album. Kari loved their music. And that's when TK started to get an idea. He decided…to get two tickets.

He knew it wouldn't make up for everything, but hopefully it would be a start. TK immediately got up and started heading out the door. He was ready to rush for the arena box office.


Twelve-year-old Davis Motomiya had an extremely tough task ahead of him. After years of going through tough battles, dangerous scenarios, and sinister creatures, now came the time for his greatest challenge. Possibly one he might not be able to overcome. A task that seemed IMPOSSIBLE.

Davis…had to clean his room.

With clothes dumped around all over the place, his bed unmade, and books and toys scattered everywhere, Davis had his work cut out for him. And it didn't look like he'd have much help from his Digimon partner, Veemon.

Veemon loved visiting Davis in the real world. And unlike the way it used to be, he liked sticking around in his rookie form. But sometimes that had its disadvantages, since it would be harder to hide him. Of course, there was no convincing Veemon to revert into his in-training form, since he wanted to be…more like Patamon, which Davis found pretty admirable.

"So…where should I start?" Davis asked, looking at the HUGE mess in his room.

"Maybe you could start over here, Davish."

Davis looked at Veemon, who was standing by a mountain of used socks. And he also saw a clothespin on his nose.

"It's…not…that bad," Davis muttered dryly.

"I thought the real world had laws against this sort of air pollution," Veemon grinned.

"Ok…I get the point," Davis growled.

Davis walked over to pick up the pile of socks before the comedic Veemon could spout out anymore cracks. And while Davis got started on the unenviable task of cleaning up the pile of socks, Veemon calmly walked over and turned the radio on. And the first thing that came on…immediately grabbed Davis' attention.

'It's the concert the entire world's been waiting for! You've never seen anything like this! For one time only, MTV is taking a live concert overseas with the TRL International Tour! After touring North America and Europe, the TRL International Tour is ready to come across Japan starting January 25th in Odaiba! Come see Green Day, Sum-41, Blink 182, Alien Ant Farm, No Doubt, and many more! Including special guests…U2! Tickets WILL go fast! So get yours before they're all gone!'

Davis stopped in his tracks. "Did he say U2?"

Veemon shook his head. "I don't think so. Why would he say 'me too'?"

"No! I mean, did he say 'U2'? The BAND U2!"

Veemon blinked…then smiled his charming smile. "Oh yeah! I heard him say something about special guests U2."

Davis thought about that. "Kari was the first one to get their new album. She loves their music! Veemon…are you thinking what I'm thinking?"

Veemon scratched his head. "Um…naming your band 'U2' can make things confusing?"

"No! Veemon, I may never get another chance like this! We don't know when or even IF all these bands will ever come back to Japan! I have to get tickets."

"How many?" Veemon asked slyly. It sounded like he knew the answer already.

"Two, of course! One for me and one for Kari!"

"Can you afford two tickets, Davish?" Veemon pointed out.

Davis suddenly realized that the little blue Digimon had a point. For Davis, cleaning his room had now become even MORE of an imperative task. So he didn't waste any more time.

He cleaned up his pile of socks, trying to find any loose bills or change. He quickly made his bed and found dollar bills scattered all over the place. Davis picked up his clothes, toys, and books while even more loose change and bills fell all over the ground. And as Davis cleaned all that up, Veemon scooped up the loose funds and placed them on the clothing drawer.

In a quick fifteen minutes, Davis had done what had previously seemed impossible. His room was now spotless and in the process of cleaning it, he had searched every nook and cranny for any signs of money. Once that was all finished, Davis walked over to count how much money he had on his drawer and in his wallet. There was more than enough for two quality seats, making Davis very happy.

And now that he had all the money he needed, Davis was heading out the door.

"Where are you going, Davish?" Veemon asked.

"To get those tickets!" Davis answered. "Be right back!"

With very quick speed, Davis ran out of the house…and headed for the arena box office.


Luckily, there was nobody around the box office. Davis noticed that the parking lots were closed and the cars were all searching for other places to park. Luckily, the twelve-year-old boy didn't have to worry about finding a parking spot since he was coming on foot. And he saw just what he was looking for. It was the box office and there were only about three people in line. And that line was clearing out fast.

Davis quickly ran for the box office…when he suddenly bumped into a friend. It was TK Takaishi…and Davis suddenly got suspicious as to why he was there.

"Hey…TK…what are you doing here?"

"I'm…here to get some tickets," TK said suspiciously. "What are YOU doing here?"

"I'm also here…to get some tickets," Davis replied with a tone of uncertainty.

The way the two boys were glancing at each other, it was like they knew what the other was planning to do. But they weren't ready to jump to conclusions yet. Instead, they slowly walked over to the box office, which now had no line remaining. And when they made it there…

…both boys made their order. "Two tickets to the TRL tour, please!"

Davis immediately turned and shot TK a cold glare. "I was here first, TA!"

"You were not!" TK shot back. "You were behind me!"

Unfortunately, the guy behind the window only shook his head. "Sorry, boys. The tour's sold out."

"SOLD OUT?!" both TK and Davis shouted.

The guy nodded. "I'm afraid so. You must missed the last tickets."

Davis turned and walked towards the street. He sat on the curb. "No…tickets…"

TK walked over and sat next to him. "I can't believe they're all sold out."

Davis closed his eyes and tried to think hard. It sounded like SUCH a good idea. Kari would have loved him for sure if he had pulled this off. This wasn't an idea worth giving up on. So he turned his brain on and tried to think of something he could do. Then he thought of something. Davis had an idea.

"I…got to go now," Davis said shrewdly. "See you later, TK."

Davis got up and started heading back…towards someone else's house. Maybe there was someone who might be able to help him.


TK sat on the sidewalk for a while. It sounded like such a great idea. He felt like kicking himself for not hearing about this concert earlier. TK really wanted to take Kari to this concert. It sounded like a lot of fun.

With nothing left to accomplish at the box office, TK got up and started heading back home. But it wasn't like he didn't have his brain functioning. TK was trying to think about what else he could do. There had to be some other way to get two tickets.

But honestly, his mind was blank. He couldn't think of a thing he could do. He didn't have a single idea…and it looked like TK would have to give up.

Of course…TK wasn't ready to give up just yet. He still held out hope.


Next Time: Who can Davis get to help him out? Can he get those two tickets? And does TK find a way he can get those two tickets? Come back next time to find out!
