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

2ch, stop messing with my head. -blank-


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.

chloeM 13th April 2009 04:34 AM

True that! Thanks for the new thread.

Rurutia 13th April 2009 04:42 AM

she looks so fab

elvesword 13th April 2009 04:54 AM

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?
