She’s not going to retire. During the commemorative video it said ayumi will continue to sing and her dream continues onward.

Ayu also when speaking about the past 20 years of support, she asked for the support of everyone as she continues moving forward.

It's too bad to hear all these bad reviews even from 1st time concert goers. I was feeling bad for missing the tour this year because I already had tickets and a trip to see Namie's last tour, but maybe this isn't the year to go anyway, so --

btw, that t-shirt is very helpful for planning a trip for next year!

I know many felt like this was rushed together, but seeing her "announce" those two dates a year from now gives me hope she'll put together a finale that'll make up for this. Seeing Ayu does cost a lot for most of us foreign fans, so it does suck to see some didn't have a good experience.

That t-shirt actually excites me, it means that she might be resting from touring after her last announced dates, and may have other projects (like an album) happening.

Wow some reviews are pretty harsh to read... it’s the fist time opinions are so opposed between those who actually loved it and those who hated !
It’s seems like a lot fans feel desabused because they expected something gigantic or well rounded. Personally i understand it because she spoiled us a little bit when she hinted this show as something to really looking forward to...

I don’t know what to think everything she does since last year concerning her concerts feel so rushed like never before ! I don’t want to sound nasty because she works really really hard but it looks like she has no direction ?and honestly why not taking more time ? At this point it’s not even a question of budget.

I’m feel strange about this whole situation we will see what happens next... the intention of focusing on songs, arrangements, bands and voice is excellent but the execution seems unfinished.

I think she wanted to perform today, otherwise I'm sure this tour would've started later. Maybe she should've done a one-off special this weekend prior to an actual tour? We are our own biggest critics, and I'm not surprised by any negative reaction, as she even said on Friday she wasn't happy with the current direction of the show.

Didn't all of JTB generally have the same / less prep time? It's a shame for this tour, she probably put too much pressure on herself.

I think doing an 20th anniversary concert and then coming up with a new concert for the domestic tour is a better idea. I feel this tour is going to change over the next few concerts leading up to the finale. JTB had numerous costume changes in chapter 1 and 2

Thank youuu

Very different but nice arrangement, I am glad she is singing it calmly not shouting (well second chorus is shouty here and there but yea) and the higher notes surprised since I expected her to go much lower with the notes and key. It's such a nice acoustix × rock mix.
Now I need it as a DVD performance xD.
She's off-key here and there but it's fine! I'm pleasantly surprised tbh especially vocally with the first half.

Thank you so much for sharing, junshen! I love the arrangement in the beginning, it's beautiful. Not so wild about the rock half, it's not bad but I find it a bit ill-suited for this song. But not a bad song by any means, I'm really happy she brought out this hidden gem!

I hope the dancers weren’t there to once again take over the stage when the rock parts happened. :/

Nice I really like the way she sings in the first part. It’s so rare to heard her using this vocal approach !! What I notice is that her shouting is really due to loud background music. She probably have a lot of difficulties to hear herself. This song really show it

That version of ever free reminds me of LAST MINUTE... first accoustic/soft then rock.
