^ Actually there's 3 angles in this clip - the first one is a close up. But it doesn't look like a very professional shooting (the camera is shaking and the zoom out in the beginning is really amateur) so I think Aderianu is right to say it's a technical recording.

I think she sounded really similar to the footage from Hotel Love Songs 2012 in Sendai that was later released. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jiopAxuKBhI)

There is a guy literally holding the camera like a handycam in the front row and down the sides of the stage. There's 4 security guys standing against the front row but that's all that's separating Ayu from row 1.

There seem to be a lot of Chinese Ayu fans at these concerts. All the tickets at the TA booth except for mine had Chinese names on them lol

My Live Pocket reservation numbers were A9 for 01/29, A4 for today 01/31 and A1 for 02/06. Anyone get any higher or lower numbers and what row did you get? I got row 13 for my first ticket, so it'll be interesting if the retain numbers have any correlation to where you are seated and if we can work out how many max were allocated for Global TA. It might help people prep for the 20th tour.

I don't think there's any correlation between the voucher number and the actual seat, it seems kinda random...

For me :
- Chiba (chap. II) : Voucher = A3, actual seat = 7th row
- Nara (chap. III) : Voucher = A10, actual seat = 6th row

Both tickets won through Global TA (and kinda satisfied with the seats)

I had A6 and A7 for two tickets for the First Chapter in Osaka for the same day. Both were 15th row

What does A3 or A10 mean?

I thought the exact seat location is already printed on the ticket, and global fans will not know the seat location until they get the tickets at the TA booth?

It's getting really old and we all know what you think about her vocals, so no need to keep repeating it Accept the fact she is yelling most of the time. Sometimes it sounds good, sometimes it doesn't.

Yeah! It's the intro of a song is born. The same as Hotel Love Songs and PoM.

The vocals were chipmunk for all the soft parts, rock parts or strong parts were awesome but either way her energy was amazing. The amount of crying was just insane, and it was very theatrical. Still, the visuals, colour, costumes, her hair, all amazing. And we’ve got 10th row!! Me and Kendelle met in hall and found out our seats are 38 and 40 but she switched and sat next to me. Turns out they put all non-Japanese in the same row. So cool to share the experience with other people. We were close to the aisle so we had Timmy and Zin walk past us. So glad I’m going to Kobe, I need to relive that experience, hopefully the seats are also great

Btw, being Ayu fan since 2004 I thought I knew all of her “habits”, not sure how to call it, but on the stage she laughed in a way I never heard before, she usually had very low strong laugh but this time it was like she’s inhaled helium, so funny. It was the first time I got to experience MC, although I think there was some short one during AT10 but this time it was truly enjoyable.

There are so many vocals gaps in that time period that Iím not even sure what you mean... itís only my opinion I guess but AT 2005 was near perfect, when AT06 was (vocally, apart from that still one of her best shows) horrendous, 2007 was... lipsynched?

I honestly believe later concerts like Cirque de minuit or RnRC sounded better than AT06 to be fair.

And To be honest: I love Ayu with all my heart, she is by oh so very far my favourite artist EVER, but itís never been for her vocal performances.

I donít think they do - my A1 was the worst of the bunch.

Looking forward to see Ayu soon in Aomori, can't wait. Is anyone else going to the Aomori concert on the 12th? So maybe we can meet up before or afterwards.
