ASIA TOUR 2008 Asian dates confirmed!

A source now states the dates and locations of the ASIA TOUR 2008 ~10th Anniversary~ overseas stops!

Quote:
2008/09/20 (Saturday) - Hong Kong - Asia-World Expo
2008/10/18 (Saturday) - Shanghai - Shanghai Grand Stage
2008/11/01 (Saturday) - Taipei - Taipei Arena
2008/11/02 (Sunday) - Taipei - Taipei Arena
Source

This is one long tour.. @_@

It's only a matter of time before her official site announces it now. [though, I don't think it'll need a thread of its own since there seems to be a bunch of Asian tour date threads.. D:~]

Also, the article states that the tour's production costs were upwards of 2.5 billion yen, or 23.1 million USD.

I'm surprised to see so few dates with last years success, just one extra Taiwan and the same in China. And the Chinese dates are a month apart? It seems long, but it's only 4 concerts..

Yeah this tour is going on very late. It doesn't leave much time to do a CDL concert does it? O_O

Well, they're far apart for a good reason, I imagine..

Most likely to allow enough time to transport the stage materials and set them up. :\


CDLs are usually planned mid-November.

Basically, she's worked from CDL07-08 directly to AT08 up until the end of June, then doing a-nation '08, then resuming her AT08 schedule to finally work on CDL08-09. @_@

Well they're managing to bring it from Shanghai to Taipei in under 2 weeks.

My hunch is that they might start editing the June 29th show, and kind of ignore the Asian stops for the DVD..

I think Namie Amuro did this with her PLAY TOUR and it worked out a lot better than the AT07 fiasco.

lol, I guessed the Taiwan date. @_@

There are huge gaps between those dates. I'm thinking new single for sure.

We're probably going to get a new single at the end of AT08's Japan leg.

The large gaps inbetween the tours tend to be for Ayu to rest [as well as to transport the stage from place to place..]~

I'm sure she's gonna release something during the overseas concerts to promote and stuff. I'm glad there's 2 taipei concerts...HK should have 2 as well.

HK probably can't have two because the Asia-World Expo Arena is pretty big.. 13,500 seats.. probably the biggest venue of the Asian dates..

then she won't really have enough time for new album in December? wow
I think this time she must've planned something different for Overseas fans, and those lucky fans will get to listen her new singles, imagine: summer/fall/winter singles, anything that ayu'll release this year ^^. 2 ates in Taiwan means many more Taiwan artist will go and see this spectacular show coz it's ayu's anniversary tour ^^ I hope the DVD isn't coming next December'09 LOL That'll be sucks. I think this DVD will only Include Japan stops, then maybe the Overseas shows will be bundled together in CDL08-09 DVD early next year, maybe???...I dunno...confusing...coz Kylie Minogue one it before, SHOWGIRL an SHOWGIRL Homecoming, so I supposed ayu'll change something in the tracklist or anything else this time round ^^
