^Power of A^3 was held at Saitama super arena, which is big, and didn’t have the band but that gospel chorus lol
I mean, I’d probably enjoy an Ayu show without band as well, as I have enjoyed Namie’s, but I’d be really really upset. For me the live band is one of the reasons (if not the main) for a live show to be great.

^You're correct, and I can't help but feel A^3 was something different, like a quirky, one-of experiment.

I don't know. I feel CDL is something we can always depend on to be the same formula. I'll eat my hat if the band isn't there.

I feel the same way. I went to JTB part 3 and while I did enjoy the show, it felt incomplete, and I actually was kind of upset when I found out there was no band. I did appreciate that they took the time to record “live” backing tracks so it wasn’t just her singing to the cd instrumentals, but I felt like I’d much rather have had the band and no dancers. It was still an enjoyable show, it just bothered me the band wasn’t there because it’s kind of essential for a live show in my opinion.

In contrast to jtb3, POM20 had the band plus the string section and it just had a more live vibe to it. The band and Ayu were interacting, playing fills and stuff...I really enjoyed seeing that one. Whatever disappointment I had with Ayu’s vocals (though I recall her sounding OK most of the show I went to), the band kind of made up for it. Honestly, TROUBLE tour didn’t really appeal to me. I wasn’t a fan of a large part of the setlist. I still probably would have had a good time if I went and saw it in person, but not having the band just kind of diminishes the appeal for me.

You could very well be correct. Didn’t she have the band there for the New Year’s Eve show of jtb part 2? It just wasn’t a CDL. Also, yeah A^3 was kind of weird, but I feel like that was a budget problem. Like they said you can only have 3 out of 4 things and she had to choose between the band, the strings, bonten and the choir.

Wow, an Ayumi Hamasaki we haven't witnessed before????? lol

Yeah, I wouldn't try it. This was years ago, but when I brought in a digital camera, not my phone, they confiscated the camera at the door and I had to pick it up after the concert.

What disappointed me more is they didn’t use pre-recorded band tracks for all the songs but some of them is just CD instrumental tracks (like Moments, STEP you). If they have used band tracks for all the songs I would more satisfied. Live band is really essential for me to feel enjoyable when attending a concert as I love how the songs being played by the instrumentals and how they sounds different from original CD version. We can see how the band was placed in other artist’s hall tours such as Koda Kumi and Nishino Kana. Even in Ayu’s TA TOUR 2003 and 2015 there were live band as well so I don't think space is problem to rid the band during hall tour. I’d prefer a simpler stage with band performance rather than a complex stage but no band. (To be honest Ayu’s hall tours’ stage are so boring)

Y'know, I never actually noticed that they used the CD instrumentals for some of the tracks, there are some I'd definitely recognize as being from the cd, but moments and step you actually are not on that list. I totally agree that having the band is far preferable to a stage full of dancers. It's a different vibe and I think she's more comfortable having Yoshio there, because if she makes a mistake he can kind of cover for her with a cool guitar lick or a funny face or something (like in CDL 2004-05 when she forgot the words to Trauma). I don't particularly care how the stage is step up, I'm pretty simple to please in that respect, all though cool stages obviously look cool.I care more about the quality of the show as "live show". It's definitely possible for me to enjoy shows in person without a band, like jtb or Namie's Finally tour, but it changes the atmosphere and takes away from the feeling, and it makes it less enjoyable to see on the dvd recording.

And song 4 u omg :weep

AJFmzk 21st December 2019 11:48 PM

Maybe it will be like Premium Countdown Live meets Power of Music 2011, a show of that production quality would somewhat justify the crazy high ticket prices at least. Really excited to see the orchestra, this could really be an amazing show!

Chris85 22nd December 2019 07:31 AM

Tier 3 is really not popular, 9 days until the show and there are still plenty of tickets available. If that's what happens when she has only 1 show, what would happen if she had 3 as before?

visionfactory 22nd December 2019 07:37 AM

Am I the only one that dislike the band thing? lol

What annoys me is that they can't play the instrumental at least similar to the original

I'm fine with them using CD's instrumentals

Party_King 22nd December 2019 09:58 AM

I think it depends on the song if the band is needed...
For her Dance/EDM Songs it’s better to have the CD version.
For her Ballads and Rock Songs I prefer a real band arrangement.

I really did not notice the band’s absence when I saw her so many times last year and such. However, I was thinking, I do love what the band did with WHATEVER from CDL 04-05.

I doubt if she’ll be able to hold concert at arenas after this CDL...

For that she need to stop touring activity for some time. People used to watch her shows even in small towns where she didn't perform before

Also shows halls are more appropriate considering where she is atm.
