According to https://kworb.net/charts/aitunes/jp.html it's #11 on iTunes! One website suggests it's #9

Based on my experience, I've had some good seats with Global TA so far (6th & 7th rows for the Just the beginning Tour 2017, 10th & 12th rows for Power of A^3, but for the last show I was just near the catwalk, north-east corner).
Depending on your "luck" after all, but I guess you can still go with the Global TA and expect some good seats.

Dunno about the foreigners not being on DVD though, I believe it may have been a thing in the past but this is not an issue anymore... I did have a (zoomed) feature on the TV & DVD of POA3, and we can see a bunch of foreigners on her DVDs now and then.

Thanks all for the help, Global TA is nice and easy so I guess I’ll stick with that and cross my fingers!! If there isn’t a tour after all I will be devastated lol

So apparently Maki Goto has a YouTube channel and she often covers other artists' songs - I had no idea she was doing anything other than playing Monster Hunter these days. I've also really liked her, so happy to see her doing music - even if unofficially. Here she is singing "No Way to Say"

Appreciate this gem.
Performances like this were what made me become a fan of her work. She truly was a legend on stage, even with terrible costume choices lol
Also, blame on whoever convinced her to force her voice on her early days. She clearly didn’t have a high pitched voice, the girl had a beautiful voice actually.

I really don't like the way they forced her voice to be extremely pitchy because her tone wasn't naturally like that, but I have to admit her voice LOVEppears-onwards has a lot of personality, something she hadn't before.

^ I agree, her voice has always been quite unique. Even though I only enjoy it from 2003 onwards.

Also had to share, an I the only one bothered by the muffled voice effect? Like it literally ruins the song for me. Rule, GAME, the intro of fairyland to name a few. The effect is even more annoying live. What they did with Kanariya at CDL 16-17 was a crime.

Pretty much all of the performances from when she was promoting the single were spot on. It's probably the most consistent she's ever been from performance to performance, and I just loved her voice at that time.

I think these are probably my favorite performances:

Dearest has some of the best live performances! And so many of them—the music scene was so good in Japan at that time, it’s a shame that there are barely any music shows anymore.

It was actually Marionette by Kyosuke Himuro, not Ayu.
