I think the decision for hall tour is best for her ear condition. Hall has better accoustic, not too loud. Compare to Arena.

Nevertheless, she looks stunning!!!
Not the same, this one got different pattern on the upper part.

The dress you mentioned she wore it again in the Merry-go-round PV without the crinoline of course

Well she didn't seem to have any trouble performing in a stadium at A-nation this Summer. Anyway, i hope the real 20 anniversary will be in an Arena because the production This Hall tour looks quite cheap compares to her last arena tours

somehow i'm not the biggest fan of how she's singing those two. She is on pitch, but some parts just sound a little strained for me, not to mention that vibrato is a bit too much. It's like the 2007-8 when she had that fake one going on. It seems to be making a comeback lately.

omg I HATED that white one. she had the black one for a year and it was nice but she got rid of it and started using that ugly white and never changed it! this one isn't tacky like the others so it's cool.

I love the setlist and she sounds so good on that ballad medley, she's glowing!! thanks for the recording!

That's probably her best Dearest performance is a really, really long time.

But, to be honest, Dearest is one of the few songs that I just haven't cared about live for 10+ years. Even her performance of it at A Museum wasn't that great, IMO, and that was just a couple years after it was released. I think I hold it to a really high expectation because when the song was a single, her TV performances were all so freaking fantastic -- probably the pinnacle of her TV lives. Over the years as her voice has deepened and she's used her lower register more, she just doesn't have that same softness to her upper register that she used to have. Her upper register tends to be much more airy now.

But all that said, it was a solid performance if nothing else.

I think despite all sadness that Shingo-san leave the troupe, but I feel her tour music arrangement leaning towards to fresher and more modern feel to it.

I do think working with new people, younger persons will help her.

But Ayu is very faithful person, she love to work with same person, a little bit comfort zone maybe for her. Look at her costume designer its the same person since maybe 10 years ago.

Is it just me or did she finally stop wearing contacts on stage?
