I wnat this to be confirmed by someone from here who was actually there
no visuals and all would be like the strange hall tour ai otsuka did...but she is more fun on stage...just watching ayu sit and sing is probably boring (or how does a mika nakshima tour look like?)

If there aren't any theatrics for this concert, I'll be really bummed out. TBH, I don't spend $100 to just see her sing :-\
really?? isn't that why people go to concerts in the first place?? I guess if you just want awesome props and lightening you can attend somebody else's concert lol

Well, I think it's kind of like... how SEVEN DAYS WAR was a "second encore song" or whatever? She didn't change for it, but I guess people want to place it there because it was kind of separate from the setlist?

That setlist is worth it for forgiveness alone. Really need to go see this now (unless they decide to change the songs mid-run....)

Mmmh, we knew it would be different. But if this is really the setlist. I don't really know, it doesn't sound to exciting. But I love forgiveness! It's the first song that ever gave me goosebumps so if it's really the opening that would be grand. Still I feel so bad for the Love Songs album...maybe Ayu shouldn't release another album and do the Love Songs tour next year?

I think HOTEL Love songs might end up getting CDL'd.

Also I'm not SURE but it sounds like the songs all had orchestral backing? She did write in ViVi that she had 20+ band members for this tour.

Except, ayu is known for having amazingly entertaining lives, including stages, costumes, props, etc.

Of course I enjoy hearing her sing, but that's not the only reason I go to her concerts.
I normally don't enjoy stripped down concerts, that's just my preference.

I love the idea of simplicity. The title alone is really what the focus of this concert is: the power of music. It's not about showmanship or stage designs, costumes and the razzle dazzle of the stage -- it's about the songs, and the feelings they inspire inside of you. That's so beautiful.

That's really all a concert is, though? If you want crazy stuff you should probably just go to some crappy Johnnys show lol

^ It would also explain why she finally went back to her vocal coach. She needs to have great vocals if there aren't going to be any flashy things on the tour.

Wow, what an odd set list......Forgiveness as an opener? I can't decide whether I love this set list or not, right now it just has me kind of scratching my head. I must say "Yay" for finally no Boys and Girls though.

Well, the title of the tour is kind of self explanatory now, lol.

The only thing that would surprise me right now is that she didn't sing Life lol I'm actually really excited for the reviews of this concert!

For me Ayu hasn't the singing abilities to do such a show. :/
But maybe she surprises me! Didn't she have some lessons with a vocal trainer?

ehm, no. not with the asking price of her tours in an arena with thousands of people. if this was a little venue for a selected audience maybe, but she's a popstar and the visuals are a BIG aspect of it all. you can be in denial about that, but music is definitely not the sole source people come to her shows or buy her albums and whatnot.



no rearrangements? but the band was there?
I have a little trouble imagining the whole scene but if she can pull it off then it may be. if she intends to do that for the complete tour anyone can easily mistake her for a lazy bum in hindsight of all her past tours. it really depends on what's exactly going on on stage and especially with her singing.

I guess whatever was being called "arrangements" were interludes.

^ Not a forgiveness fan here, so I'm not too excited about that.

But there are indeed many of my favourite songs in there. BLUE BIRD, fairyland, part of Me, Far away, Mirrocle World, Born to Be... and my fav song Moments!!!! Happy with this setlist~ ^^

Just a little disappointed about the lack of "razzle dazzle". For me, that's what sets ayu's lives apart from everyone elses', and to not have that is a little sad, tbh. But I guess it's expected.. Oh well...

As long as the outfit of the night wasn't that HuckleberryFynnxFrodo Outfit I'm ok with no costume changes.

lol I just think that I would die to see her again just singing even, all the props are obviously needed, but it depends on the type of show. I bet she will pull it off this time, whatever it is that she's doing for this concert.

That's the other thing too, we don't know much at all, I guess we better wait before deciding if it is fair to pay 100 dollars to see her "just sing".
