It's for the pamphlet that she'll sell at POM2, but she's wearing an outfit from JTB, so I don't think it's related to the theme of POM

LacusClyne 25th March 2018 03:01 PM

BabyJane 26th March 2018 09:49 AM

Well, according to google translate the post says that "it seems"... Maybe they aren't sure themselves if they get it done or have something to show ^^

attractive nausea 26th March 2018 09:55 AM

^ I'm sorry but as professional people you don't do that, either you're actually ready and make an annoucement or you don't say anything at all lol. I think the "it seems" was just ayu's way of teasing us.

Maybe they're waiting 6pm japan time?

BabyJane 26th March 2018 09:59 AM

But we all know how "professional" ayu's team sometimes is. Remember the misspellings, etc...

attractive nausea 26th March 2018 10:02 AM

^ True :(

Agree, don’t promise on something that you can’t achieve. Moreover, this is just bloody goods info. I mean how long more do we need to wait...

~angel*ayumi~ 26th March 2018 10:19 AM

We maybe can hope for 7pm, sometimes Good sales also start at that time.

LacusClyne 26th March 2018 10:23 AM

You know what scares me, it's the 1st round of goods, I have the dreadful feeling of them only posting 3 or 4 items as a "Preview"....

Even for the “preview” of 3 or 4 items already took them this long. I can’t imagine if they were to release all of items/info at one go... :(

rainbow_smile 26th March 2018 10:53 AM

^ I think the post says "After this, the goods will be announced on the following website", so I guess they'll reveal them later

~angel*ayumi~ 26th March 2018 10:53 AM

It´s somehow a bit sad we have such a lack of news so close to her Anniversary that we are that thirsty just for bloody Tour Goods announcments xD

adrtwb 26th March 2018 10:55 AM

it’s just bloody tour goods got us waited for like forever. i don’t think we will ever get an album info.

tokyoxjapanxfan 26th March 2018 11:09 AM

Up plus seems to be a 3D printer ?? Lol

Y'all if she releases a thousand dollar A model 3D printer I'm dead lolol

~angel*ayumi~ 26th March 2018 11:10 AM

They are UP!

I LOVE the lightstick <3

tokyoxjapanxfan 26th March 2018 11:15 AM

Hmm ... not a fan of like any of the goods. Yay I'm saving money. I really don't enjoy the princessy "white" version picture :-X

JackieRos 26th March 2018 11:15 AM

I love that tassel keychain, is so cool that it has the names of her concerts.
I usually like her handbags but I’m not impressed with this one.

~angel*ayumi~ 26th March 2018 11:16 AM

the leopard print goods are also not mine, but I adore the lightstick and that keychain with all the concert names on it^^

tokyoxjapanxfan 26th March 2018 11:17 AM

^ that's about the only thing I like... I buy the lights just to have them not necessarily based on liking it. And then last thing I like is probably the luggage tag but that's really only to commemorate the date of the tour...

Also I'm confused by the "defend Paris" part of the post lol what?

Edit : ok now I get it. Apparently defend Paris is a brand, as well as smiley, that will be collaborated with.

attractive nausea 26th March 2018 11:23 AM

I don't even know if i adore these goods, but i know i want all of them.....

EDIT : Ok except the bandana and the bag lol

There are 11 luggage tags, one for each date, which def makes me think there won't be additional dates for this tour, well maybe after Osaka but def not before.

truehappiness 26th March 2018 11:37 AM

I like the goods. But not sure how I feel about leopard coming back and not really fitting with other things.

This. It all feels totally random. This tour doesn't have it's own visual identity.

Aderianu 26th March 2018 12:42 PM

Leopard print is her signature.i actually expected to see it

adrtwb 26th March 2018 12:56 PM

It has the same vibe as CDL Hotel Love Songs

~angel*ayumi~ 26th March 2018 02:10 PM

I wonder if there will be TA special lottery again. And if 2nd wave of Tour goods will be announced before tour start or if 2nd wave comes for finale only.

freedreamer 26th March 2018 02:40 PM

What is that colour band thing?

i love the keychain with all her tour names and their respectively identities. Love the poster.

The rest are a hot mess and the two portraits of her...im sorry but the white one looks a bit drag to me..

Check the facts before telling something like that... He was arrested because he was selling and showcasing in a exhibition pictures of naked models without the genitalia being censored, what is illegal in Japan.

Gorgonia 27th March 2018 02:03 AM

What is the best option when it comes to transferring the ticket to somebody else?

1) Informing TA someone else is picking them up and send them an email with the required info.

2) Picking the ticket up myself and giving the extra ticket to this other person? In this case, my name would be in both tickets? Or does the final ticket not have a name on it?

pedronekoi 27th March 2018 02:34 AM

^ 1) I think there's a deadline for asking to someone to pick the tickets for you. Irc it's already over but I'm not 100% sure.

2) I think that's the only option right now. And yes, your name will be in every ticket that you bought. And you have to pick the tickets on the day of the concert, you can't pick them in advance even if you have won multiple lotteries.

Hope that was helpful :)

For Ayu's concerts, yes they can use them even with your name printed.

It's not Johnny's or AKB48 group concerts or events where they will do a ID check, so no worries.

roxaskh2fm 27th March 2018 04:41 PM

So i bought tickets in my account for me and my boyfriend. So I do not need to use the "change ticket" option to his ticket account right? I can pick both and we can both enter together. Right?

LacusClyne 28th March 2018 03:47 AM

^yup you can collect them and both can enter together

Are the seats usually together when you get more than one ticket for a single date?

First time going to ayu concert - advice?
 
Hi! I'm very new to this forum and I wish I had found it sooner!! Mods, let me know if I need to delete this and post elsewhere...

I've been a HUGE fan of Ayumi since I was like 13 (28 now) and I'm FINALLY able to go to one of her concerts!! AAHH so excited!

I didn't know if you guys had any advice for first time concert goers? My husband and I are going to Japan soon for our honeymoon and aren't sure if there is anything we should know about her concerts? Are the goods hard to get? Do you have to stand in line for hours?

Thank so much! Cheers! :love

No they are not. I typically managed to get them within 10 minutes. Be in front of the arena 30 minutes to 1 hr early and you'll be oke. Even being late is fine as it usually takes around 1 hr for people to get it and for the concert to start. The stalls with goods remain open throughout the show.

When I went to my first Ayu concert couple years ago, I went to the venue good time ahead before showtime. Not cos of the goods, though you avoid lining if you get there early, I didn’t line at all, except for the photobooth. But you should just go and hang around the area, eat close by, get the goods and such, enjoy the athmosphere :) Everything is very well organized so there’s really no worry about anything. Hopefully you two will have lovely time, first time in this case is always the best haha. Would have loved to go this year for Ayu as well, but my gut feeling says she will continue touring as long as she can. So Namie went ahead this time :)

People queue hours b4 the concert to secure limited items or things that might be sold out on the concert day. If you didnt have anything which you 100% must get and the item is a hot fav, going after the concert started should be able to just walk in and purchase.

*If u need tix for the 7th and 8th of april, pls pm me ^^"

Gorgonia 29th March 2018 12:59 PM

How about the items you can being with you? A backpack and stuff? Are there any items forbidden besides the obvious?

^ you can bring in backpacks with you!

CellaFae 30th March 2018 01:36 AM

During the concert, no videography nor photography is allowed, unless it's a segment that they clearly said you can take with your phone, or it's a big NO NO.

If you're going to arena/convention hall sized venues backpacks are fine as long as they fit under the chair. But I guess you wouldn't feel quite secured having out of your sight. If you're getting goods, don't forget they take up space too.

For hall sized venues like JTB, it's most likely you won't have any space under the chair, and there won't be space in front of you since the seating goes downwards.

dreamlover13 30th March 2018 10:10 PM

I wish she would record ASFXX so I could have an updated version of As if.. and POWDER SNOW, but I guess I’m not fortunate.

Hair extensions are back and string orchestra/band rehearsal

It seems like there are many dark rock songs in this concert? Reminds me, Mad World and decision. Could that be why the leopard print is in the tour goods beside being a signature ayu pattern?

attractive nausea 31st March 2018 08:50 AM

The LINE live is disappointing, basically now they're showing dancers trying to drink water out of a bottle while doing acrobatics.
The whole thing has been ayu and ZIN calling dancers/musicians to come with them and chatting/joking for 2-3 minutes with each

Can't understand japanese so idk if they've said anything relevant about the tour

Agree but at least they are promoting the tour, better than doing nothing...

KittyKathy 31st March 2018 09:45 AM

What did she do with her face...:no

dez0424 31st March 2018 12:47 PM

It’s very noticable that everyone weren’t know what exactly to do (including ayu).
So it’s obvious that it’s just to promote the left over tickets, which is sad, since being her 20th anniversary tour and tickets weren’t sold out, still.

njanjayrp 31st March 2018 01:24 PM

She was rehearsing Bold&Delivious live on insta. The arrangement is slightly different!

Katsuyuki012 31st March 2018 01:34 PM

Her vocals sounded okay from what I checked. With a more "vocal" choice of songs, we'll be fine for CDTV 25th + it'll be pre-recorded so she can take as many takes as she wants to. Hopefully, her voice want go totally hoarse towards the final since there's some resting time in between...

Uknow! 31st March 2018 01:55 PM

I hate to say that but that’s kinda true. I wonder why her managers didn’t warn her on her diet and such...

maxikot 31st March 2018 07:01 PM

Call me blind but to me she looks fine and is far from any kind of "overweight". Besides she is sitting so that's not the most representative shot.
I love her energy in the rehearsal video and can't wait for the tour to start!

polka-dot-jewel 31st March 2018 07:28 PM

This happened during her 10th anniversary tour, she gained weight during that tour. But 10 years later, I'm sure her metabolism has slowed down, and her short stature is always sure to fluctuate weight. She certainly didn't look too terrible.

Katsuyuki012 31st March 2018 07:39 PM

Also, it's so funny to me that in the rehearsal video she sang "tachiagatte Saitama" instead of "tachiagatte misete".

mizuki-7 31st March 2018 08:33 PM

She certainly gained a little weight but she is far from being fat as many say ... she is really short so it's really noticeable when her weight fluctuates. She seems to be struggling to regain her physical form despite her intense schedule. Maybe she is under medical treatment? or just her aging like a lot of women
near 40 ?

BTW his voice was on the point during B & D! I hope it will be the same for his CDTV performance ...

KittyKathy 31st March 2018 08:50 PM

I don't see her fat, but her face looks puffy again.

Aderianu 31st March 2018 10:09 PM

I really hope ayu will not listen to anyone who said she gained weight and need to something with it. She is a human and doesn't need to torture herself with something unhealthy just to please someone's eyes. Also it may be from the medicine and she can't do anything even if she wants. We don't know for sure, we don't know how she feels about it. And to be skinny at 20 is much easier than at 40.

melissalove 31st March 2018 11:41 PM

Ayu did talk about how her knees hurt. when you’ve got knee problems you gain a bit of weight. I honestly don’t care, I think she looks beautiful and sounds amazing.

stepYOU1234 1st April 2018 01:36 AM

Part of it is that Ayu used to be so so skinny when she was younger so anything in relation looks 'big'. From interviews it sounds as though she is actually a lot healthier and that she barely ate at some points around 2000-2001 to be that small. I'd much rather have a healthier Ayu than a super skinny Ayu :)
For most arena tours in the last 10 years I've always thought she gains a bit of weight just before the start. I guess because it is so full on that the weight just drops off and she can eat more at the beginning to build herself up for rehearsals and touring?

Amalgam 1st April 2018 02:22 AM

isn't it a cultural thing to be blunt about gaining weight (if you're Japanese)?

njanjayrp 1st April 2018 07:38 AM

People should open the “Ayu is fat” thread and continue this meaningless discussion somewhere else.

Andrenekoi 1st April 2018 07:51 AM

^The Ayu Body Shaming Official thread, where they could talk about her weight, her jawline, her boobs, or any other random comment about her body.

Sometimes, she does wear some things that may not flatter her as much. She looks good though and is pretty normal in the videos. She tends to slim down a lot during the actual tours anyway.

The V-neck looks terrible on those t-shirts. If it even is a V-neck...seems like they are just pulled down by mic’s weight.

Katsuyuki012 1st April 2018 02:00 PM

Looks more like microphone...

Evan Odinson 1st April 2018 02:12 PM

If that's fat then I'm a f*cking hippopotamus :laugh people will always have something to complain about.

freedreamer 1st April 2018 02:26 PM

You guys realized in the Bold & Delicious choreo at 4min, the dancers form a circle and then break back into a straight line choreo after that. I think its a standard stage for POM this time

Katsuyuki012 1st April 2018 02:50 PM

^seems so! I can imagine the performance will (at least towards the end) simply be at the end of the runaway.
What looks weird though is 00:58 cuz two dancers dance facing the other side of the room while the rest stands "normally" but then again on the right (few seconds later) they look to the side. XD oh well, I'll see

xLuna&1LOVE 1st April 2018 03:12 PM

I don't wanna sound mean, but to me it sounds like she is struggling... and she sounds hoarse. Btw, I find her gestures waaaayyyy to exaggerated, even for B&G.

But commenting on weight is so low. She looks great. She is everything I want to be when I am 40.

Katsuyuki012 1st April 2018 03:38 PM

Well that lady doesn't give her vocal chords any rest at all BUT with many dates there's always a break and twice she has a one month break like, she basically has a 2 months break until the final dates (with two concerts in between + those two also have a week break between each other) so i can imagine that this time it'll be the opposite than usually and she'll sound worse during the beginning and better during the end.
At least I hope so, that those long breaks will help (which they normally should) so then I'm happy the tour doesn't have too many dates.

JackieRos 1st April 2018 03:59 PM

Damn what will people complain about next. Sometimes the camera angles adds a few pounds but I bet in person she’s small and tiny.

I saw her back in 2011 when she was doing the 2012 calendar in NY and in a few pictures she looked curvy but in person she was soooo tiny. She may have added a couple of pounds in over the years but she’s far from chubby.

She made long post at TA about this. I can't translate but if someone here can do it, I'll post. I think this theme is important

We could maybe create a different topic about that so we focus on the tour itself in this one?

She is looking hot in that pic from the Line stream.

B&D-wise I thought she was sounding a little hoarse/forced too but sounding better in the verses!

I try to make an english translation from the french translation of important paragraphs that a friend of mine make for me...So with 2 langages steps, it's not perfect! haha
But I hope It could help =)


Well, it's really surprising and touching, I hope we (and Ayu) will be able to make progress about this subject now =)

I'm proud of her !

« […] Today, members of my staff told me » Ayu, you should lose weight « or » your photos are too retouched « and it offended me. Yes, I know. What I mean, it’s just that I know there are a lot of people who say that.

« […] Of course, if, a few hours after the Ayumi Hamasaki at LINE LIVE, we look at the Instalive or we look at Ayumi Hamasaki’s photos on Twitter, we want to say » What ?? » Seriously, me too, I think the same … Yes, there really are differences. «

« […] But, well, you too, even if it’s unfortunate, do you never happen to have two really important days which overlape?
It never happened to you to work tirelessly, to do sports without considering your time, to go to the point of complete exhaustion, to have the features drawn when you come back home, to even have the impression that your whole body lost at least one waist compared to the morning? Of course, during LINE LIVE yesterday, I was really swollen, my brain was not working, I really could not pretend to be a good host. This time, for sure, I’m the only one responsible.
Knowing that I had a live the next day, I should have had enough sleep, I should have taken some rest and offer you a healthy Ayumi Hamasaki. I’m sorry.

But you know, the one who made a LINE LIVE at 4PM, the one who made a Insta live at 9.30PM, the one who took a selfie home at 11.30, they are all really me.
I don’t want to say things like, « No, I’m not fat, » or « No, I don’t make photo retouching » I’m just very concerned about our age where we use plenty of apps and let us make an imaginary ego on social networks.
And I think all of this gives me a very good opportunity to talk about it.

I don’t think we have more beautiful eyes because there are bigger, I don’t think that a face is more beautiful because it’s small with a pointed chin, and it is not enough that one has thin arms or legs.
We all have a body that has its particularities with which we are born. That’s what gives everyone a personality that is precious to them. I would like to tell you how much I would like you to remember that.

I’m going to put 5 pictures today, okay? Me around 11am yesterday. It’s about 18 hours after the end of the Line Live, I have unkempt hair, the makeup is gone, but here it is also human beings.

I would like all those of the TA that I can meet during CDTV recordings or during the tour understand it. And I would like you to make your own opinion by seeing me in real life.
The apps are only apps. Do not use them excessively.
Because without being dependent, we are all, much more than we think ourselves, beautiful people.

Today too, dear members of the TA, I love you from the bottom of my heart. "

if you look closely, there are some blue lines on the floor. it seems like it's round stage in the end of catwalk

i can be wrong tho

^^ Thanks for the translation.

It is sad she even has to explain (and apologizing) for the way she looks. Stay strong Ayu!
