And it's literally the oldest and the most performed song of the album.

That's the pity of her only touring once in a lifetime, we always get single-driven setlist and very few (when it happens) album tracks.

Great looking setlist, happy to see Ore no Kanojo on there along with Sakura Drops, Travelling and Hikari. The main song missing for me is Shittosarerubeki Jinsei.

Most concerts are single-driven (hence lately there are more so called side-track concerts), but I believe UB has more than one popular songs. I know that UB probably was the "rock bottom" in her career (BML got less than 100K on the first week, Passion was the first single she couldn't get no. 1 (well no. 3 precisely), UB was the first album not getting over 1 million copies on the first week, and the only album not getting over 1 million copies overall before hiatus), but she did pretty well in digital (at least Keep Tryin' was pretty popular), and BLUE was pretty popular as the album song. Dunno why she only did one.

And for Distance... it remains as a mystery. Probably she hates the album as well lol.

Does “as well” mean it’s a generally hated album?
I love it lol.

Wow, I'm so glad filming wasn't banned. I'm watching second Fukuoka day videos now and she's in a surprisingly good vocal form. And the arrangements...I'm almost crying of joy and heartbreak that I'm not there.
Is there any info on filming for DVD or TV broadcast?

Good question lol. When I said "as well", it meant that I dislike the album, or I should say it is my least favourite album. Gotta admit that I got too much hype for it (due to Distance vs A BEST lol). It wasn't as good as I hoped for .

Anywayz back to the concert topic. I kinda wish it is a circular stage (like WILD LIFE). Then Hikki could walk around and people at the back could see her closer.

Believe me, the circular thing it's justa bad for anyone who's not in the middle hahahaha cause I was at a corner at the back and when she went to the middle i couldn't see almost nothing haha and she was on her back to us most of the time (although she was slowly spinning so everybody could see her)


Before the concert I was also hoping for a center stage, but then I thanked it wasn't haha

I don't think she hates Distance, it's just that she's a mother now and a woman in her 30s, it's probably very hard for her to connect with the lyrics she wrote back when she was 16 years old about lots of teenage experiences that she's way past it.

And that's natural, I mean, even Britney and BoA themselves said that they havve hard times performing Oops! and Valenti, respectively, 'cause they don't really feel the lyrics of the song anymore.

I love the "Face My Fears" cover artwork and I'm so ready to hear "Don't Think Twice" tonight!!

But WHO THE HELL does Skrillex think he is?! AUTOTUNING UTADA HIKARU'S VOICE?! Nah, he can take that back where it came from.

Skrillex's dated production is bad, but the melody sounds beautiful. I'm conflicted lmao.
