POWER of A^3

what the meaning:confused

ayumint 31st December 2018 02:40 PM

A^3 = ABEST3???

~angel*ayumi~ 31st December 2018 02:41 PM

I dunno, maybe a typo again.
But it´s written this way not only one time but every time in the text. But maybe they just copy and paste the typo xD

LONJJONG 31st December 2018 02:47 PM

A^3 = A cubic?

EndOfTheWorld 31st December 2018 02:50 PM

From Ayu's Insta

maxikot 31st December 2018 02:51 PM

According to online translation, ^3 stands for: Ayu, the troupe, the audience and how three of them will go beyond the Power of Music. Well, it's an interesting title. Was thinking it would be some grand Trouble tour finale but maybe we can expect that + much more ^^

kendelle 31st December 2018 02:52 PM

Ayu, Anniversary, A = A to power of 3?

Sounds like it's a message that she's not slowing down :)

EndOfTheWorld 31st December 2018 02:54 PM

When I first saw it I read it as ayumi hamasaki 21st anniversary -POWER of MUSIC 3.:dead2:laugh

AyuWorld 31st December 2018 03:12 PM

confusing lol

and it is the closing for her 20th anniversary and during her 21st anniversary, ok im trying to digest their style haha

ayu-michan 31st December 2018 03:21 PM

She tours so much!! I hope she’s in good health.

AyuCanada 31st December 2018 03:34 PM

Isn't it the extra date that was on the crew POM tshirt last year?

~angel*ayumi~ 31st December 2018 04:20 PM

Yes it is the dates from the PoM2018 Crew Shirt

I think it’s A to the 3rd power, they just can’t do the small three in text.

altough https://avex.jp/upload/emoji/2.gif?1546261313.392607³ isn´t impossible to type xD

tokyoxjapanxfan 31st December 2018 06:56 PM

~angel*ayumi~ 31st December 2018 07:16 PM

You mean like that: A³ ?

Xianghua 31st December 2018 08:50 PM

It's exciting but it feels weird because I don't really view the trouble tour as part of her anniversary activities? So it's like: anniversary - separate thing - anniversary. Idk.

It says that it is meant to be read as "cubed" and that the show will be a brand new production from scratch.

I'm thinking this is a real possibility because a new TA Mail was sent about an hour ago that said "Looking forward to seeing many TeamAyu members all over Japan!" :'D

cosmicfirefly 1st January 2019 12:54 PM

It wouldn't surprise me, I figured she would announce another tour right away since she's been so into it lately. I hope she takes a break from it at some point, it must put a huge strain on her voice. Looking forward to a new setlist though. Now if only we could get releases of all these tours lol

280301 1st January 2019 03:34 PM

A BEST^3 must be coming hahahaha.

aliceshields 1st January 2019 05:33 PM

I’m guessing she will be touring touring touring and touring...

Party_King 1st January 2019 06:42 PM

I just thought about that she’ll name her new Album “A^3“ and it incl. three songs which names all starts with an “A“ lol :rolleyes

kotora 1st January 2019 07:36 PM

If the new album titled as A³, please have more than 3 songs.

aliceshields 1st January 2019 07:56 PM

3 songs + 3 instruments @@“

“A Song for xx... (episode 2)” keep dancing in my mind now 🥺🤭

It would have made much more sense to release A BEST 3 and promote/sell it during the tour...

Gustavopc 2nd January 2019 07:17 PM

I misread it as "POWER of A <3" lol

It does sound like it'll be tied to A BEST 3 but I myself won't expect that... But damn another concert series, she really is putting a lot of effort in concerts since JTB. Wonder how different from what we had in 2018 that will be, and since that's an arena I'm expecting a flamboyant concert :P

Deep snow 2nd January 2019 08:15 PM

come on ayu just give us (me) the Pokémon-themed A BEST 3 -RED- -YELLOW- and -BLUE- we (I) have been clamouring for!

Norrel 3rd January 2019 01:22 AM

I had a good feeling there would be some concerts on these dates after all! My tickets are already booked to be in Tokyo that weekend :) Also can't wait to see what she pulls out for this! I saw the first night of JTB ch. 1 in Yokohama, so it will feel cool to see the final of her 20th anniversary. A full-circle moment.

However, I really do hope if this is only two dates after all, that she will really put a lot of energy and production into these dates. Similar to how Dome Tour was only two dates, and just look at how crazy that show was!

~angel*ayumi~ 3rd January 2019 02:40 AM

O.o
Dome Tour had 8 dates.

Yikes! Wikipedia lied to me then, because it only said two dates on the dvd page haha

pedronekoi 3rd January 2019 12:59 PM

I thought it was such a weird name lol But if it's supposed to be "cubic", I like it. Indeed, even on Macbook you cannot type the small 1, 2, 3 as Andre told. So maybe they don't know how to type it too.

:laugh I agree that it's likely for the next album to be called cube, but instead of 5^3 songs there would most likely only be literally three tracks on this "album" and two of them are Intro and Outro :laugh

Aderianu 4th January 2019 11:55 PM

Those 2 days were announced on Trouble tour T-shirt. I thought it will kind of grand finale. Wonder how setlist and show itself will be close to what we see now.

Guys, is it possible to get tickets if you are not member of TA, or is this going to be very very difficult ?

voltron 5th January 2019 01:35 AM

Awww, let's pretend that this could at least be an exciting release.

Maybe she'll do a sunrise/sunset for a triple A single called "Cubed" and it'll have a ballad version, a rock version, and a pop version - showing the many sides of Ayu.

If you legitimately want to go, making the travel preparations and such - just get the TA membership. You will spend less money on the ticket(s), and won't have to deal with Yahoo Auction.

true... although if my personnal experience can help, I went to the tour last year by a AHS member who had won too many tickets at the lottery. AHS may sometimes have more power than we think.

And better seats too. During the CdM Tour me and a friend went to the concert. I had TA Tickets and she had the Convenience Store one and omg, she was seating on the higher part of the audience, really far and I was seating on the arena really near the middle stage.

That’s a relief to hear. I just signed up for TA for the two dates at Saitama in April, and kind of hoping they’ll be just as good as the seat I had for JtB Chapter 1(i was so close to Ayu when she came by on the trolley for Fly High!), which although I bought through a reseller, were apparently TA tickets.

~angel*ayumi~ 5th January 2019 12:06 PM

TA does not allways garantee you good seats, for PoM2018 I had seats in the stands on 1st day (arena C block on the 2nd, also not thaaaaat good)

I had awesome seats for both POM2018 dates in April in Saitama. A3 on both dates, super close to both the stage and the catwalk! The worst I ever got with TA was B3!

Honestly, I hope she come take a small break after the tour. Lots of tours in the past few years.

i just dont get it how she can do lives for 2 years now with 5 songs being released >D true queen, only queen , but sad me >D

pedronekoi 5th January 2019 10:27 PM

She posted on TA about performing being her passion and how it was exciting to do the CDL. And she said "I’m going to make this year one that I will be able to say I have no regrets about, whenever it’s all finally over" and it gave me some vibes that she might take a break after being so workaholic for the past 20 years.

In the other hand she also wrote that she decided to carry on. Again and again
This women likes to speak in mysteries xD

Katsuyuki012 6th January 2019 12:22 AM

"whenever it’s all finally over" probably refers to her going fully deaf

EndOfTheWorld 6th January 2019 12:39 AM

Hopefully this doesn't revive the Ayu is going to retire panic.:no

Andrenekoi 6th January 2019 12:55 AM

^Has it ever died?

xLuna&1LOVE 6th January 2019 02:35 AM

Maybe she just hints to when the TROUBLE era is over.
Ayu will figure out another way to keep on touring.

Ayu will figure out another way to keep on touring.

No need to figure anything out, if she wants to tour so bad she just needs to release a new full album with songs that inspire her and make a tour with those news songs being the main attraction. I mean, touring and releasing songs is her WORK, she cant just decide to ditch 50% of her work because she feels like it. Well she can but that is not being a professional to me.

I get you, but I don't fully agree. I think Ayu proves, that one can keep on touring, without releasing a full length album every time. Yet, she does not come over as unprofessional to me, because she gives 1000% into her shows and they look well put together. There are many singers, also Western singers included, who are doing (world) tours, and haven't really put out a new album on the market. Ayu is one of those performers, who can do that. Plus, even though she usually picks the same songs for her setlist - her tours don't look the same to me.

So with figuring out, I was hinting to picking some another theme and make a setlist out of the massive discography she has worked on for like 20 years. I am content with that :)

What the fork A^3 kind of theme is... who knows!

Andrenekoi 6th January 2019 06:38 PM

She really IS one of those artists few artists that could do a 3hours set of hits everyone would recognize.

I just disagree about her setlists being all the same... There are those 5, 6 songs on every concert that are really overplayed, but it almost never takes up the majority of the setlist and it's pretty much the usual amount of staples of most concerts.

It does feel like there are more repetitive songs than usual because she is touring using her 20th anniversary as a theme since 2017. Even so, I belive the last time we counted it was a total of +100 different songs performed through jtb, POM2, the a-nations, etc.

Actually, I will count again once I get my to my pc.

She released like 250 Songs in her career, she can tour without releasing new material.
There're more than enough Tracks for touring...
Don't get me wrong, i'd love to get new songs, but not just for an excuse for a Tour.

Andrenekoi 6th January 2019 11:42 PM

Since Ayu started celebrating her 20th anniversary, back at the jtb CDL, slowed down the music releases and toured like crazy, she performed 96 songs on tours, CDLs and a-nation.

96 songs.

That's a fucking lot and there's not many stars in the world that could say they had 96 well liked songs to shove down people's throats, let alone in just 20 years of career.

Really, she has performed almost 100 hundred songs during her concerts over the past 2 years, saying she is always performing the same stuff is completely unfair. Saying she is lazy or that she doesn't care is even more unfair.

The songs (I wanted to organize them in alphabetical order, but I'm too lazy and there are too much of them)

The thing is, it is only written with such an ominous connotation in the English translation. If you switch it to the Japanese text, it comes off much more inspiring:

Quote:

いつが終わりでも1ミリも悔いはないと言い切れる一年にします。

I will make it a year in which I can declare, still yet whenever it stands as the end, that I have not even one millimeters worth of regret.
To me it sounds like she will continue to make progress on doing things she's always wanted to do, and close out the year having accomplished things she one day will no longer have the opportunity to make good on.

She wants to make it a year she did not let to go to waste.

In other words, 10 years from now she doesn't want to say "Damn, I really could have done more in 2019."

Andrenekoi 7th January 2019 01:44 AM

Several of those performances also were choreographed to some extent. This is A LOT of work

and stress and mental health. She always wants to preform the best.
Remembering almost 100 songs lyrics and preforming in few years are extremely difficult.
