My thoughts exactly! She looked stunning on the 21st, I was really amazed by her beauty and it fitted the hbya performance so well.

So I just watched it, and I'm sorry, this was maybe one of her most boring concerts yet. Her vocals were flawless and it was all really great, but I just didn't feel it. The whole orchestral theme didn't do anything for me either.

There were a few good things though.

A Song is Born was way better than I could've expected, she did that really well. Nothing special, but she nailed the vocals. I was even very positive with Timmy in Brillante, his performance was amazing and it really added a lot to the whole thing.

And when they went back to forgiveness at the end, I was close to being in tears, it was so beautiful and such a great end to the show. And that was quite the accomplishment, since I think that song in general is one of the most boring she's ever made But she added much more power to it in this show, than the original track has.

But basically everything in between was just 'meh'. As we know that she'll be downsizing, I hope her next tour will be more in the spirit of Chapter 3, that was absolutely amazing.

Edit: Oh, and also, ever free <3 <3 <3

Don't know if it's me, but I couldn't hear much of a big difference with the string orchestra in some of the songs (ex. B&D, B&G) Unless they fix it in the DVD/Blu-ray and turn up the sound from the orchestra. I think the orchestra played a bigger role in PoM 2011?

Just finished watching. And finally I can take a breath, cause this left me totally BREATHLESS-SPEECHLESS - I watched it in one go.

I love just everything - flawless vocals (!!!), astonishing orchestral rearrangements, beautiful visuals, refreshing setlist. This tour turned out to be not about props, discomegadrive and pop-show entertainment, and I find it ultimately inspiring. What an unexpectedly charming, elegant and gorgeous celebration of 20 years...

And after 20 years of music creation and ultra-heavy performing (ayu's fans are the most spoiled fans in the world, no doubt) she still SLAYS. Ayu NAILED it.

It might seem stupid and childish for a 30 y.o. man (it definitely is), but during these moments I'm sooo proud to be her fan!

P.S. I need blu-r, I need flac of the live, cause every single song shall be downloaded on my music player NOW!

Loving reading all the reviews! I hope we get a Blu-Ray release. I'd actually love a boxset of TA Tour 2016, JTB Parts 1-3 and POM 2018, thanks!

Something bugged me about Mad World footage though. In one shot she had different hair, more flat and ironed. I also laughed hard one time. Catcher In The Light was supposed to end with frog guy doing his swing trick but he slipped on a mattress. They cut that part
I hope TROUBLE reveal will be back in full release too — it was intense.

Thanks for clarifying. It's a shame they cut diary though, it was nice with both miccie and yongae

Wow that does sound pretty intense...I feel like (Suke3?) pulled it off when I was there (different day) but I honestly don't remember now haha. TBH I actually like when they include the screw ups and mistakes from the actual show they record, it makes performers more human and less perfect in my opinion. Iirc they used different footage for CDL 15-16, at one point her dress was stuck in the stage but they erased it from the bluray

you speak my mind!!! I lost my words really!

and for me this show really speaks THAT Power of Music, yea maybe she didnt have like the full orchestra members there, but all the time we only get Ayu, Ayu and music, I loooove all the arrangements!

omg cant get enough that Mad World/ Ever Free performance!! during Mad World where runs towards Yo chan ( I love the angle of the back cam here) then she changed a bit the key for "kono jidai wo dou ikiru" gosh that jrock side of herrr,

Ever Free arrangement especially towards the end!!! the lighting job works really well here <333333

Brillante, I feel like screaming "wakanda foreverrr" loool but really she looked gorgeous and loved the feel, better than PoM 2011

Season <3333 HBYA <333 the dress and the tiara, also I would love to see her in that dress of HBYA PV too!

Next Level new arrangement, love it, fun , brilliant, she danced a bit during the chorus

then Surreal full version!! Love it after so long didnt hear this song in full version live.

so yeah bluray asap pleaseee

ps: still cant move with real me at TA Tour 2016, and now she slayyeeddd with PoM 2018 lol

I really enjoy this show more than TA TOUR 2016, it is one of her best concerts ever. Although the outfits are reused and the performances are not so attractive as she did in the past, I can feel her whole emotion and the concert is like the review of your career. She is the singer in this show, not the performers anymore.

evolution, Mad World, TO BE, hbya, NEXT LEVEL.... all of the songs make me say "Happy your 20th anniversary, ayu" unreasonably. It's true

I'm watching it now. Wow, really impressed by the show and (edited?) vocals so far!!

No dancers in the ASfxx - ever free section? YAS. I also loved the part where Ayu and Yochan were on the treadmill thingy during ASfxx. I feel like it's sort of an homage to DT01.

-EDIT-

After watching it in full, I have to say this is probably one of my favourite Ayu concerts ever. Sure we don't have the signature Ayu theatrics which may be a good thing because it's been... too much in recent times. In a concert like this, we really just need Ayu's amazing stage presence and great vocals which were both there. I really loved ever free's and NEXT LEVEL's new arrangement - really breathed new life into these songs. I want to own it physically now!

I've just finished watching the concert and I'm speechless. It was an amazing show, the setlist was great and her vocals (edited or not) were soooo good. Simple and touching performances of classic songs with powerful lyrics.

That's the type of tours I definitely wanna see in the future.
