You were likely removed from the lobby for not posting your AHS username - you can't get access to the rest of the server otherwise, and we remove people who haven't posted in there after a few days.

edit: We have now reached maximum capacity for the event.

I went to see her in April 2022 as well in Pia Arena and that is not true. Seats were not restricted, it was 100% capacity. You couldnít shout or sing along though. Covid restricted seats were present at first shows of 23rd monster tour in November 2021, but not anymore for CDL 2021-2022.

Here is news from official site announcing that they release more seats due to relaxing of covid restrictions back in 2021: https://avex.jp/ayu/news/detail.php?id=1094762

All artists that I know in Japan had shows at full capacity this year. Definitely no signs on seats this time that they are not in use due to corona restrictions like it was in Makuhari Meade for first show of 23rd Monster.

How are you saying it's not true? So rude of you. We didn't go to see the same event. I saw her delayed concert in Kobe. All seats had spacers. Everyone had to fill in a COVID survey on AnyPASS.

I'm guessing they space seats if the venue doesn't sell out.

Sorry for that. Kobe show indeed had spacers for the seats, like for 23rd monster arena shows. But the same month for Pia Arena 24th anniversary they didn't have spacers (and seats in the stand area are very very small so there was no social distancing for sure). The survey on AnyPASS still remains also for CDL this time including the questions about Cocoa tracing app that is not operating since November.

Looks like tonight's show won't be sold out either, plenty of tickets still available. People are saving money because of collapsed yen, do not want to risk getting infected or the fanbase just shrank further?

Sorry, even being her biggest fan I couldnít bear through her screaming & poor techniques anymore.

She exhausted herself by the end of the rock section and pretty much screamed through the rest of the concert. That together when performanceÖ. I considered leaving after that but chose to stay given Iíve been her fans for all these years already

her appears TV performance was promising and all but someone needs to tell her to STOP SCREAMING. And the frustrating part is I know she can actually sing. Idk if itís all those rock song at the beginning that set her for failure. But frustrating nonetheless

Hope she does better tmr, but her cords will probably be even more exhausted.
so disheartening to hear that she's reverted to screaming again, after the good (but granted, edited) TV performances that succession of rock songs are a huge red flag for the state of her voice, no matter how low she tries to lower the keys.

I think she mostly sounds good! There were a few songs where she struggled or was shouty, but 80% is very solid IMO!
Visually, the entire concert is stunning, too! It's a fantastic show in my opinion. Great outfits, great usage of the stage & a great setlist! I think Ayu actually did well during the rock section & her voice was still good, even after singing all those demanding songs.

(NOT) Remember you & Nonfiction were next level iconic and tbh, the entire rock section was really great too! The red section also felt 'iconic' to me, especially M! Others might disagree but this concert has so many "WOW" moments to me.

this is so good to hear! I can't wait for (NOT) Remember you to release soon. and it seems that Nonfiction is getting a lot of emphasis as she enters her 25th anniversary huh? always interesting to see why she values certain songs more than others.

^I hope my words don't give any wrong expectations haha. To me, this concert was truly iconic, though there were some shouty songs & her voice was a bit tired in the encore.
Ayu's voice is what it is these days, so that's obviously something to remember. But other than that, this felt like Ayu at the top of her game.

I think the DVD is going to be fantastic

Oh and regarding Nonfiction, the song had a little bit of a moment, that's probably why she pays so much attention to it. It's quite successful compared to the other singles.

Her stamina is insane! She ran across the entire catwalk and back during Love song (the very end of the show) & was still beaming with energy. It's easy to forget that she is 44 and had two children since 2019. Also, I feel like she was more energetic here than during other shows we had since 2020.
