From mixi from Huaka:
Started Rule from the substage.
It's like last year's Asia Tour. Very flashy.
Ayu looks like she lost weight, but was very cute.
She cried during Days, and sang from her chest (I'm guessing her hand to her chest).
Ayu was like a kid during Next Level. Erm... looked very kiddy? No idea.
(There's something about Super Mario. She looked like Super Mario? Had a vibe of it?)
She was amazing (you know the kami-kanji god-like) and wore X-Men like sunglasses.
The new dancers were very nervous.
The costumers were very much like the Next Level jacket/booklet.
She also had a cheerleader like outfit?
Stage was simple, cried during Curtain call.
Ayu was on a radio interview talking about this year's live up until now is very different. Or it's going to be very different from now on or something like that. (the mixi member commented how she used all 14 tracks for the tour, maybe that's it?)
The beginning when she sang Rule was super cool, and she got goosebumps (audience member).
The new dancers also joined in on the My All dance.
There was no signed balls this time.
She danced during Sparkle (the no no no parts), but since it was the first day it was a bit clumsy?
During the time when they were doing My All and Shu-ya came out from the back, this mixi member yelled out super loud "Shu-ya you're terrible!" and "DISAPPEAR!"
Lots of people feel that while the setlist was good it wasn't enough.
When she sang In the Corner, Everywhere Nowhere, Hope or Pain, she wore a pink dress with a necktie that was similar to the PCDL one.
MC was very short.
She missed her lyrics or the music during Rule, so she sort of cried, and there were like 2 explosions. (The fire things)
People say that her costumes are very similar to previous tours.
There was some sort of electrical/technical failure for the opening movie.
The setlist/whole thing was sloppy but this mixi member's most memorable performance was In the Corner because the dance was so cool, Signal because it broke back a lot of memories, Everywhere Nowhere because of the lyrics love is not an illusion, and your dreams will come true, the light of your hopes/wishes will shine through, and Hope or Pain because it's one of her favorites and she was so happy she sang it.
They all think she sang the old songs because she did it for the people who didn't go [to the PCDL] and wanted to hear them.
Explosions for Rule and Identity.
The use of the screens was super extravagent.
There was silver tape (ribbons), so it was very pretty and colorful.
EnergizE costume was super cute.
Okay so the kiddy thing I mentioned earlier they keep saying "aka-chan" so baby Ayu?


From SunshineSlayer:
There was apparently several problems in the concert; some comments about the concert not being ready or something along those lines.

Apparently the big white dress got caught on something while she was walking.

There was some kind of problem with Rule as truehappiness mentioned.

There was no sound for part of Rollin'.

Some kind of problem with the lights and sound synchronization.

From tokyoxjapanxfan:
Quote:

the only part that I noticed being messed up was that rollin' didnt have her mic on for a small part at the beginning, but that's just what i noticed.

during bridge to the sky, there was a slideshow of ayu going from now all the way back to when she was a baby! never before seen picture of her as a teenager and child! i cried a little. hahahah

the mario part was the little movie before energize, the male dancers had baseball uniforms on and the girls were cheerleaders.

when she sang from her chest during days, it means it was a really deep and powerful voice. it was really strong

im tired so this is all i have to say for now. hahaha

People are supposing that GREEN is opening the show. vogue and Rule are also open for debate... seems like it's leaning towards GREEN though. Curtain call's also being brought up.. rain and an umbrella.. WOW someone mentioned t2m as the first song. LOL.

Some heard walking proud.. maybe?

The first one usually gets burnt out in the first day or so.. then it gets slower.. and slower. Most of the time it's because of complaining/spazzing though.

Jwiz 13th April 2009 04:33 AM

The comments make me want to watch the concert NOW :D

And i love the newly added costume pictures.

Thanks for the information and pics, really looking forward to see the video of the arena tour, i love her black suit, white dress and her hairstyle~^^

dreamland2.0 13th April 2009 05:06 AM

I'd like to thank Lee_410 in the last thread for showing me the pictures of the previous AT 06 costumes!
(and I think it was a good idea she changed them ;) even though they stood out a lot!)
perhaps she'll do that this time too??

Emperatriz Ayumi 13th April 2009 05:17 AM

Thank you so much for the new pics!!

I am loving the cheer lider outfit!!!

ITīS PURE LOVE!!!!!:love:love:love

Luther10 13th April 2009 05:44 AM

Ok, i've given it more thought about the setlist. A lot of you people compare it with the PCDL setlist because of those repeat performances of rare songs. Everywhere Nowhere and Signal I have no problem with, I think those 2 could become her staples. In the Corner was awesome during CDL, and she is wise to repeat it here for the tour.
I pinpoint the problem in particular to 2 songs, For My Dear and Hope And Pain. These 2 ballads are just average at best (of course for some of you they could be your favorites, i'm just saying in general here), they don't deserve their spots here. I think if Ayu exchange them with some other ballads, everyone will be happy. And she can do it easily too because those 2 performances have no dancers and no choreography.
Some great alternatives I can think of: Forgiveness, Hanabi Ep.2, Walking Proud, Dolls, Close to You, Jewel, Momentum, Moments, Heaven... and Life could be done during encore.

pommy48 13th April 2009 05:46 AM

^ <3 i would love if she change them with those songs you listed....i do really want to hear hanabi ep.2, but doesn't seem it would fit the outfit

YES!!! O_O;

Forgiveness with a full orchestra!

HANABI ~episode 2~ with sparks towards the end!

JEWEL with her in that white snowy dress of hers and a classic piano!

Moments... or my beloved HEAVEN *-*;

*faints*

Andrenekoi 13th April 2009 06:36 AM

isn't forgiveness like... one of her biggest flops? Even if I love this song, doesn't look like a good choice...

The PCDL songs she used were chosen by her fans at T.A... She asked them wich rare songs she should peform, and Hope or Pain was the most voted if I'm not wrong...

Andrenekoi 13th April 2009 06:56 AM

I would love to see more forgiveness lives too... is one of my favorite ballads from ayu

SolarAngel 13th April 2009 07:00 AM

I LOVE the white victorian-inspired costume. This looks like a great concert and i think the setlist is marvelous. Better than last year's!

I agree their not her best ballads, but I think it's pretty obvious why she's using them.

I think she's like experiencing some kind of unrequited love, and those lyrics are the best way to express what she's feeling:

For My Dear...

"Maybe I'm singing this song because
I can't say the words I want to say the most."

"Maybe I've come to like this person because
I can't hear the words I want to hear the most."

HOPE or PAIN

"Though I know very well
A miracle will never happen"

Days

"I've known for a long time that you have someone precious [...]
I expect nothing special from you
Can I stay loving you forever
Just like this?"

Curtain call


"Even now, I can't say well
The only word
That I want to say most"

I like it, because they kinda express the same feelings,and they're like connected.

Am i making sense XD?

BoBo 13th April 2009 08:11 AM

10x :P

MissElin_ 13th April 2009 08:22 AM

Well I think indeed there will be some changes in the end of the tour, after the break with a-nation and such. Maybe a new single will pop up? Or just some changes with the setlist like she always does. I think the tour is awesome right now and I think it will continue to be awesome, even with changes. ^^

When you put it that way, it does make a lot of sense!

hiro_hikaru1987 13th April 2009 08:33 AM

disappointed... the outfits are from CDL... 2 or 3 new outfits.... out of all of them... i guess.... the budget for the concert got cut a lot

LacusClyne 13th April 2009 08:59 AM

i just want some changes in her outfits...too much PCDL recycle stuff

zoomzoom 13th April 2009 09:04 AM

ayumixx posted a review... http://www.ahsforum.com/forum/showthread.php?t=88758

This years finale with the flying chair seems a bit 'eh' compared to last years huge ship on stage, but overall it does seem like a really cool concert. That horrid wig is even growing on me. I love how they brought more emphasis on screens back too.

jbrat2219 13th April 2009 09:05 AM

I don't even care about the costumes to be honest. I know my mom probably will, so I'm only going to show her one of concerts. I think I'll show her this one. PCDL is too long for a casual listener I think. She'll get tired and wonder when Ayu's going to change again hahaha.

oh really? I didnt review those lyrics long long time
thanks for reminding:D

AyuHamasaki01 13th April 2009 09:30 AM

wow new thread already! These threads move so fast.

I don't get why Ayu doesn't understand that the purple glitter outfit with that wig is totally not done! :shakehead

[taskin.ayu] 13th April 2009 09:31 AM

Smells very low budget to me. I guess they had to cut the budget for the concerts this year, it's a pity too, since it seemed like it had some good concepts.

SunshineSlayer 13th April 2009 09:42 AM

Ok, I had my bf (native japanese speaker) take a look at the With Ayu bbs and translate some things for me. I could tell they were arguing, but my level isn't good enough to understand the very specifics of it. Here is what he said is going on: After the show, several people were complaining (like here) that it was too much of the same again. Some feel that this show is only a prototype or alpha version and that the "real" show isn't going to come around until October. Many people are voicing their dissatisfaction saying why should they have to pay for something that isn't finished? A few people are saying 'just don't go to the show then' and what not. Then others saying that even though they are Team Ayu members (this is a hard core Ayu fan board in Japan), being a fan is not just supporting no matter what. Lots of back and forth and some very rude according to him. I've read a few good opinions of the show, but most have been pretty "blah" about it and don't have much desire to see it again.

Tony G 13th April 2009 10:00 AM

It would be sucky if this show was a "prototype" show, but I doubt it. The first show of any of her tours will always be the shakiest. It was probably more shaky than ever this time though - probably because of her hectic schedule and the release of NEXT LEVEL so close to the date.

It's not really an excuse when you have paying customers though. But unless it was absolutely terrible, I wouldn't feel cheated. I think we can't see it from these people's viewpoints because they probably go to an Ayu show every year, whereas her western fans wouldn't and would appreciate whatever she did more. Japanese fans would have higher expectations to match the previous concerts they went to.

And Hope or Pain is not a mediocre ballad, it's to me one of her best and really underappreciated, and most importantly, transfers to a live performance really well.

Well I guess this is good in a way...honestly I really hope ayu knows about the complaining and hopefully change some things around and put more effort into her future tours like her previous tours. It makes me unhappy to read and write negative comments about this tour that I've been anticipating since pcdl...but this tour is a big letdown. :(...the costumes are the biggest problem for me. Please please change all the costumes expect for the red cheerleader and the military one!!

AyUmIXx 13th April 2009 11:53 AM

truehappiness, sorry my friend, but my friend went to the 12th April 2009, the 2nd day one, not 11th April 2009 :)
thx for putting up my thread on the 1st page :)

ruixiong89 13th April 2009 12:17 PM

I do hope the show improves. It seems like there were many problems with the show like the audio running out at certain parts or the mike getting cut off. It does seem rather PCDL recycled, so they really need to improve I guess. The white floating chair thing (vs. the ship in AT08, metallic cross in AT07) isn't an improvement at all. Yup, please Ayu. It does seem like a very very rushed production. Many good ideas but they just fell short of good execution.

Choyan 13th April 2009 01:12 PM

I like the stage? :?

I'm not loving the costumes ><

Yukitora 13th April 2009 02:57 PM

Eh. The tour has a few breaks - chances are they'll get updated when Ayu finally has the time to design what she really wants to do costume wise. She had very little time preperation wise due to the recent release of NEXT LEVEL, its not surprising she recycled costumes. She done it before on atleast two occasions.

Btw, I quite like the purple jacket and wig. That was my favourite costume (after MW) from PCDL. I just dont like those pants, and she's using them for about half the concert it seems!

se7entheaven 13th April 2009 03:23 PM

maybe they will make a special final or something coz this tour is damn long
I can guarantee ayu will change some of the costumes along the way

makes sense. quite cool.

I hope the tour steps up. I have wild imaginations for it and its certainly not like tat

ayu_fantasy 13th April 2009 04:08 PM

she looks good... :)

Love ayu!!!

noidea 13th April 2009 04:24 PM

Some people here act like the news of the flying chair is something new, i saw it on the first or second pic of the chair o.0

Well, I think better about the concert now that I read some reviews, light show and videos seem to be superb and LOVE 'n' HATE and identity are not in the PCDL-copy outfit? Great^^ My two favourite songs of NEXT LEVEL get good outfits then^^

KillTime111 13th April 2009 07:41 PM

sanks for the update~!! i`m not feelin` a lot of the outfits for some reason (o_O;. i stopped looking cause i didn` want to further spoil myself with it for this year~! sanks again~.

kumikomishitate 13th April 2009 08:28 PM

O_O Do I not see a SURREAL there? NO!!!!

noidea 13th April 2009 09:12 PM

^ She killed SURREAL with all the performances, no SURREAL means more place for other songs

rakeru 13th April 2009 09:19 PM

hmm, not fond of the wig. but the costumes look good, even if they aren't so original-- it looks like we have some PCDL recycles.

I'm glad she isn't doing Surreal actually even though it is one of my favorites. Her last few performances of it have sounded very off.

Ayumiko 13th April 2009 10:52 PM

I heard one of koda's costume is a 10m dress from her trick tour...how I wish ayu goes back to the days when she had huge dresses/ surprising outfits...:(

thanks a lot for those pics i want to see the for my dear performance !!

Thanks for sharing! Sure this is a really enduring tour - expecting over 40 performances combined between this tour and a-nation '09...

I watched all of koda's previous tours and will watch trick when it comes out on dvd. My point was I always prefered ayu's tour coz she always had great outfits (huge dresses, etc), her stages were grand...just no other female artists came close to ayu when it comes to that imo. This tour ayu really stepped back. Hearing koda's 10m dress just reminds me of how much I missed ayu's huge dresses that she no longer wears in tours...seeing another artist wear big dresses is not the same...coz she is not ayu.

koda's 10m dress isn't that special tbh. and ayu hasn't always had great outfits in her tours, lol.. she's had some really tacky and just :shakehead outfits.

but like people have said it seems like she is toning it down for this tour and i like it. not everything has to be all extravagant. plus, imo, when things are too extravagant her vocals suffer greatly.

jbrat2219 14th April 2009 01:42 AM

I remember when a lot of people wanted her concerts to be toned down and for her to focus more on her vocal performance... funny that it's what happened and everyone complains again lol.

truehappiness 14th April 2009 03:25 AM

Well, if it's not one thing, it's another with many fans, it seems.

dreamland2.0 14th April 2009 03:50 AM

Just a question - has she ever performed HANABI ~ episode 2~ on a tour???
Cause wouldn't that make it a rare song, and she should sing it!! ;)

QFT. I know right. Oh well... I'm liking the simplicity so far, and even though this tour doesn't have the so-called "grand" dresses... it has a lot of cool light-works!

@teddbear55: She performed HANABI ~episode II~ in a-nation '03 (or was it '04)... just for that one event.

her vocals aren't going to be that great regardless.

I want it to look cool :laugh

this one doesn't. oh well.

I actually feel like kuu's tour has the potential to blow ayus out of the water...but knowing kuu and her people, they'll screw it up lol

i agree with you! i love things over the top and dramatic.. after all, it's a concert. no one wants to see a toned down show, that would be boring!

i will manage to live with the costumes (there is only one i like... the rest are not flattering for her/her body at all because i know how beautiful she is.) as long as the vocals are really good.

Hopefully it'll turn out better than you think :)

And Kuu's concerts always have better gimmicks than Ayu's concerts in my opinion but I never find hers as interesting to be honest. I dunno... Ayu has this spirit when she sings live most of the time. Kuu's getting there, but it's just not as profound to me... They're both great performers though <3

I know Koda's dress isn't special...ayu had longer dress before. I loved majority of ayu's past costumes.

I know ayu set the bar up really high for her tours and I know she can't always keep it up with the grand stages and all. I'm happy this year's stage is different compared to her previous...even if its tone down with no special props. From the reports its suppose to be a colorful stage with the lights and screens so that gives me hope. Maybe a tone down stage might not be that bad...afterall, I loved 07-08 cdl, and pcdl.

I'm fine with the setlist including the pcdl songs. I don't mind if the pcdl songs are performed exactly the same as the cdl...but however, I do mind that majority of this year's tour costumes are recycled...and she wore them not that long ago too. I never cared about ayu's previous recycled costumes but this time I'm really unhappy about it. If she has to recycle outfits, atleast put more effort into changing it more to make it not that noticeable. I also don't understand why she had to make the same outfits but in different colors...the sparkle purple jacket and the pink mermaid dress. It takes time to make them...why can't they be different design? The mermaid dress isn't the only style that she can walk in...and the jacket style could of been really different if she wanted to.

Well I personally have always preferred Ayu's concerts over kuu's, because they seem more put together, and more exciting and better costumes and stuff.

But this year...I feel like kuu's might be better. Especially since Ayu isn't doing anything "big" this year.

Someone in the last thread said they miss AT05 costumes. Me too. That was my favorite year lol. 06 was okay too...and then 07 came out and I remember thinking "wtf" and then 08 came and I was like "uh..." and now 09's here and I'm just like "no."

So...I mean...I guess I haven't been very happy with the direction her costumes have been going. Which is you know...like so much more important than like her music and everything :P That's why I'm very disappointed in Ayu this year :yes

I actually really like the way kuu performs...but it's a lot different than the way Ayu does, and I think it really should be that way, because her music is different...and she does a lot more things...like...choreography and weird half cute half sexy things that kind of gets reflected in her voice lol

Ayu...she just...I mean, okay...hmm...the only thing I don't like from her...is the weird "fierce" thing...like MW at kouhaku. omg that was horrible. If she never pulls one of those again...I think I'd be cool with her performances lol.

And as far as profoundness goes...I think kuu has a few profound performances...but they're not profound in the same way...

and Ayu for me hasn't really had one in a long time...but neither has kuu lol...

ack the jpop world is so weird right now.

jbrat2219 14th April 2009 06:17 AM

I'd be okay if she never did a "cute voice" live or wore that fairy costume she did at PCDL ever again.... BURN IT GIRL!

emi♡ 14th April 2009 06:21 AM

:laugh yeah I really don't...care for the cute Ayu lol

I just want her to look good. Like seriously. I wouldn't care if she came out in a damn clown suit, if she looked awesome in it.

And I wouldn't care what kind of performances she gave either...as long as she looked awesome doing it...but a lot of things she tries to do like...flops bad lol


and btw...what is the red thing supposed to be? It's a cheer outfit? At first I was like...oh it's a cowgirl outfit...oh no the hat...like a flight attendant...but no...because it doesn't...hmm...

and then I gave up lol

Ayumiko 14th April 2009 06:25 AM

The red outfit is suppose to be a cheerleader outfit. If you look closely, the star on her hat is the tour's logo. I really like the cheerleader and the grey military outfit...looks so good on her! If only the rest of the outfits are not the way they are.

Don't take this the wrong way, but you remind me of my mother! She's TOTALLY into Ayu concerts for the costumes and the different designs she comes out with each time. I hope she's not disappointed with this tour then! But then again, I think the only costume she'll remember is the sparkly vest+hat since she wore that during CDL 07-08.

haha. it's just i think she gets too excited with the whole extravagant show and everything and doesn't put as much effort into singing good. koda kumi has the same problem, she'll look so excited about her cool show but what comes out of her mouth can be deadly.

if you look at ayu or kuus more simple concerts, like limited TA live or that best second session promotion concert (i forget what it was officially called), they both were very simple but vocally they were great.

se7entheaven 14th April 2009 07:28 AM

^ I agree. But still pop artists usually go crazy when it comes to concert^^
Now this thread is gonna be ayuXkuu. hahha..I dun say I hate or love who. COz I love ayu and kuu when it comes to live performance but I personally love ayu's syle of live performance. Beside looking prettier than kuu ^^, ayu has this charisma or whatever it is (like someone said up there: Spirit) that makes her live more enjoyable to watch even if she just sit there and sing. The way she deliver the songs is so much nicer anyway. if I were to rank, ayu#1, kuu#2 ^^ YAY...cheers

njanjayrp 14th April 2009 07:34 AM

Kumi almost always uses the similar dresses and the cheap blonde wig for her ballads that's supposed to look cute on her, along with the white dress xD Her tours are usually messy as Andre said. When it comes to performing live Ayu has way more exp. and she is simply far better than Ku.

waterballoon 14th April 2009 07:43 AM

Kuu's concert actually kind of go towards more of the Taiwan singers' concerts... I mean the whole interaction with the audience in the main concert is SO C-Pop. Ayu has never done that in the main concert... it's like a proper show; very grand and formal, while Kuu is more informal and more fun overall.

Either way, I love them both. :P

And wouldn't the ballads look better if it was like this...

In The Corner
-short intro-
GREEN
-outro (lol wut's that)
-same intro as AT 09-
HOPE or PAIN
Days
-Kaeru-

I mean GREEN is a ballad, but in a totally different style from HOPE or PAIN and Days. It's a non-conventional ballad that requires something more. The PCDL performance of GREEN pwns AT 09, me thinks.

Polyrhythm 14th April 2009 08:10 AM

Whats with all the hating on Koda Kumi? @_@ I think her concerts are pretty good too...second only to Ayu...and she can be an insanely amazing vocalist...depending on the song being performed. I like her energy on stage even if Ayu typically has more. Iunno...Im entitled to my opinions...you guys are entitled to yours i guess...

C+R+E+AYUMI 14th April 2009 08:34 AM

10.いんざこ In The Corner
11.ほーぷおあ HOPE or PAIN

they really don't match with the setlist, no??

Thank you for the pics, the outfits were great!
she' really think

Andali 14th April 2009 08:43 AM

already? I didn't know it started already? lol. nice

hiroshi_ben 14th April 2009 09:53 AM

i like both of their concerts...but i think kuus concert are more suitable for youngster to watch while ayu's suitable for all range...since ayu's fan range is really wide!ranging from small children to elderly people =)

NintendoHTF1242 14th April 2009 09:56 AM

I enjoy Kuu more because she doesn't do an annoying cute voice. She has more energy in her voice nonetheless.

Let's hope Ayu has more energy in her voice this time around, PCDL was a disappointment vocally. No emotion whatsoever, thank goodness she didn't perform appears. I probably would have fallen asleep. Then of course, her cute voice bugs me a bit. It just is WAY too cute sounding for me to fully enjoy a song I guess. Tracklisting this year looks ok. Yay for HOPE or PAIN and In The Corner love <3

I really agree with you on this. AT05 had truly mindblowing costumes every single time she changed outfit. It was amazing. And I really felt the same way like you in AT07, then AT08 and not AT09. I actually think that PCDL costumes owned AT08's. And now PCDL still is better then AT09 too. Actually, CDL07-08 had better costumes then AT08 too.
Com to thikn about it. CDL07-08 and PCDL both had better stages then AT08 and AT09 too. But maybe thats because that stage only is possible in Yoyogi. Wellwell. In the same way I dont wanna complain cuz I know that Ayu works her hardest, I just wish that she will fire her current costum desginer... :P

You are TOTALLY right here! Its weird how they put GREEN in between HorP and Days, wellwell... And yes, GREEN will never be better as it was performed during PCDL.

tinka69 14th April 2009 12:04 PM

oooo some of the costumes are really cooool. Some of the best I've seen in a while. and what the hell happened at the concert? sound problems?

Diana 14th April 2009 12:10 PM

I like the list :) I'm so glad that all NEXT LEVEL song will be performed!!! :D Thanx for the info, can't wait for it!! And um.. customes are a little weird/used up? x.x (my opinion)

Deep snow 14th April 2009 03:59 PM

did she sang well? how's her vocal quality people?

jierarudo 14th April 2009 07:37 PM

there've been reports/comments/postings from fans on how the stage is so simple this year, how boring they think the costumes are, but in my opinion these people are forgetting that we've got a BLOODY RECESSION going on.

every. single. industry is affected. and the music industry's definitely not spared too.

budgets have to be cut, costs have to be be minimized - in fact i'm wouldn't be surprised if she didn't do an asian leg this year because the costs would simply escalate.

also, i think people around this forum should stop complaining and whining that the tour should have been done this way, the songs should have been included this way, or the dresses should have been worn that way.

if you've not been to the concert with ayu dancing live on a stage in front of your very eyes, then i think you should reserve your comments AT LEAST until you've seen it. seeing a concert live is very different from just reading reports on them.

noidea 14th April 2009 07:41 PM

^ But she has more attendees this year, all of them paying the same they payed the last years, why would they cut the budget, even if theres a recession going on?

Ayumi27 14th April 2009 07:45 PM

Yeah, the recession isn't directly related to Ayu's tour

Lack of props, amazing costumes and sets was due to the little time she had this year to put on the show. And about the music industry, it has been falling for years now

maybe avex wants similar amount (or even more) income by putting less cost
this make shareholders happy and price of stock will rise and rise

I don't think so. (about the recession) lol It's sort of like fashion you know...Yeah the industry is going on, yes they acknowledge it, yes they give you advice to buy investment pieces...but...do they lower their prices? No. Do they start using cheaper materials? No. Are any of the runway shows and campaigns less grand? No.

Besides, Ayu has a lot of fans here that have been fans for a long time. Some people have come to know exactly what one of the her tours will be like after reading just the reports. Especially in the recent years where her tours are getting more and more recycled. Most everyone here has a knowledge of Ayu that allows discussion.

Besides, if we didn't discuss these things, these threads would be totally boring and so would the Ayu forum. A lot of people have made very good comments on all sides of the discussion, I wouldn't want to stop that just because people think we should be quiet until the videos come out.

~X2RADialbomber~ 14th April 2009 11:15 PM

Don't bring the god damn 'recession' into this. God you people blame everything on the recession >___>

jierarudo 15th April 2009 06:57 PM

i know discussion's always welcomed (just like how we are here hahaha) but there's a fine line between discussing and... well, whining and complaining about everything.

all i'm saying is that ayu, though she yields the most power, isn't the only one involved in the decision-making processes. there are so many factors influencing the planning of a concert and how it'll eventually be presented to the audience.

and emiko san, i love, love, LOVE your analogy of using fashion, but i think we're looking at two very different industries altogether. a louis vuitton bag may cost $5000, but the people who buy such bags are EXPECTED TO and know that they have to pay such a premium amount, even in such tough times. the thing is, people will still gladly fork $$$ for them because c'est la mode!

and i'm not blaming the recession! i think it could be a factor in shaping ayu's tour this year, and i just hope people will bear that in mind and keep it real, that's all.

Andrenekoi 15th April 2009 07:13 PM

I think that sometimes there are so many effort in producing the concert, and the technology used is expensive, but people thinks that everything was simple cause they don't see the expensive aspects of it

Don't know if this is the case, but that's happened on Madonna's "The Girlie Show"... it has one of the most complex stages she ever used, but it appears to be very simple... =)

noidea 15th April 2009 07:33 PM

Yeah, I go along with that. I was just thinking of The Girlie Show as an example too.

And it's ok to share opinions and complain about the NL tour, but it's still early to judge the complexity, innovation or design of the stage when we've seen only one or two pics of it :rolleyes

@noidea:
http://madonnalicious.com/images/1993gs/stage1.jpg

See, from that pic the stage seemed a plain and typical one, but it actually took days to construct it in each city, and had several props, lights, platforms, elevators, curtains, moving platforms for the band members, and even a pole for pole dancing (don't know how to say it), which had a height of over 10 meters

Andrenekoi 15th April 2009 08:01 PM

That's the first time I've seen somebody say that lol.

I don't mind them :) I mean they just keep her from being naked after all... Hmm... maybe she should be naked. :lech :innocent

-Black Latex Rule costume: Itīs cool, nothing new, fits the song and all. I like that it doesnīt has the open sides like on the PV. But Iīm not convinced much by her hair... Iīll have to wait to see it on video.

-Cheerleader outfit: I donīt see why everyone loves this one. Itīs ok, but a bit too cute and ugly imo. If it were simpler I would like it more. Also, red is not the color that best suits her.

-Black outfit with her midriff exposed and hat: I donīt like her with hats xDD but well, itīs ok. I like her tie though.

-Big puffy white dress with sleeves closed: No. I donīt see her love for those dresses. They are horrible, seem like taken out from the 19th century and they make her look extremely old. Same goes for the pink-arms open one, but that is even cheesier. I like the correlation of Days with the pink color but really, it makes her look old. And how many times have we seen the "changing dress" trick before?

-Militar outfit with miniskirt: The best outfit of the whole show, and the only one that doesnīt have faults in my opinion. She looks young, sexy and powerful.

-White glittery tuxedo: Is this Ayu or A.I.? Looks pretty much disgusting. She is like the Bling Bling Bling Mama in this.

-Black latex costume with the corset: This is one of the best too. She looks sexy and fierce, but it looks a bit recycled from past concerts.

-Sparkle one with wig and Scawaii jacket: Oh... my ... god. Along with the one used for Days, this is the worst of the worst. That wig makes her face look like a dish, that jacket is totally inaproppiate for Sparkle (she should have used latex here imo) and the pants seem to be recycled from the Black outfit with midriff exposed. She looks kinda ridiculous. No, no, no ...

-Encore one: one of the best too. She looks very young and happy, and I like her trousers with that part falling over her lap. Looks very cute.

The best outfits imo: Encore one, militar one and black latex with corset one.
The worst outfits imo: Cheerleader one, Puffy white/pink dresses, sparkle one, white tuxedo D:
