I'm liking the black and grey tshirts and the mugs!

Hikaru Utada Laughter In The Dark Tour 2018
Yokohama Arena, November 6th 2018

Notes/Thoughts:

• First song was “Anata.” She rose silently from the stage, more silence, then into the first line.
• Overall presentation was outstanding. Two large screens on the left and right, along with a massive screen behind her and the band. Several platforms on the stage that allowed for more lights/screens.
• Really really great arrangements. Standouts included “COLORS,” “Prisoner Of Love” and “Hikari”
• Definitely felt the first day nerves. She seemed a bit hesitant the first few songs, but got into it a few songs in.
• “Face My Fears” was a no show.
• Dancer Fukiko Takase (“Forevermore” MV choreographer) joined her onstage for “Tomodachi” and “Too Proud”
• “Too Proud” was a standout, Hikaru even joined Fukiko in a bit of a dance for parts of the song, and Jevon’s entire rap was replaced with a brand new original section including Hikaru rapping for the very first time.
• A central stage was used for several songs, (“Chikai,” “Manatsu no Tooriame,” and “Hanataba wo Kimini”
• She followed “First Love” with “Hatsukoi” (she messed up the first line of the later)
• Final song for the main part of the concert was “Play A Love Song”
• Encore was “Ore no Kanojo”(!!), “Automatic,” and closed the whole show with “Goodbye Happiness”
• Other tracks included : “Michi,” “Kiss & Cry,” “Forevermore,” “traveling”
• During the first costume change, a rather long prerecorded short film was included featuring Japanese writer Naoki Matayoshi. Truth be told, felt way too long and derailed the energy/momentum of the first section.
• Overall, very pleased with the show. Looking forward to seeing it filmed and presented!

Utada is not dressed up like a jellyfish-like collage of garbage bags or a Cruella DeVil after being torn by a paper shredder? OMG, 2018 is too much for me.

(by the way, loved the dress)

Aren't there pictures of the second dress? Although my favorite one was the black, the black and white dress was a blast! She was SO beautiful! But don't worry, the dorky hikki was present in a video intermission hahaha

So exciting.
Utada's hair looks super shiny there. I never really enjoyed Utada's costumes so I'm glad her fashion is simple this time. I'm still loving that white dress and hairstyle she wore when she performed Hatsukoi on TV.

Again, no song from Distance (even though Distance is my least favourite album). I wonder why she skipped this entire album in both WILD LIFE and LAUGHTER IN THE DARK.

In the concert? Even if that's the case, I'm still kinda surprised that Hikki ditches the songs from that album. I kinda wanna hear Addicted To You live again, or maybe Wait & See .

Well I'm a bit shocked that she only sang one song from UB.

First Love (2): First Love, Automatic
Distance (0): None
DEEP RIVER (3): traveling, SAKURAドロップス, 光
ULTRA BLUE (1): COLORS
HEART STATION (2): Prisoner Of Love, Kiss & Cry
Single Collection Vol. 2 (1): Goodbye Happiness
Fantôme (5): 道, ともだち, 真夏の通り雨, 花束を君に, 俺の彼女
初恋 (6): あなた, Too Proud, 誓い, Forevermore, 初恋, Play A Love Song

Half of the songs in this concert are from her post-hiatus albums. I'm kinda shocked she didn't sing Flavor Of Life, consider this song was mega popular back in 2007.

I'm very disappointed that yunagi was not included.
Traveling and Colours has me the most excited.
