So cut from some of the Asia tour dates?

I guess the Illuminati-ish theme is the taboo you are referring to?

Thank you!! She sounds pretty good, I'm glad she kept her voice soft for the most part.
I'm really curious to hear the other rare songs as well!

I really shouldn't be doing this, but here is Last Links as I don't believe it will survive till final show. I think for CDL many rare songs will be replaced with something, and when tour goes abroad as well - to appeal more to general public and not hardcore fans.

PS. I will delete both files probably tomorrow or so, feel free to make mirrors though

Someone did mirrors for Ayumi_lover uploads? The links are already gone. NVM, it worked when I activated Desktop Mode on Chrome app.

I really enjoyed both audios, thanks Ayumi_lover. She's off-key during some parts and had pitch problems here and there, but she's pretty stable overall, mantaining her voice until the end. And her actual voice suited both songs well. I'm curious for petal, Like a doll and My Way.

Any news about today's show?

Thank you @ayumi_lover! I think she sounds decent, the screaming is gone for good. And what an amazing last links is, I forgot about it.

It was like… she and the choir were wearing that cloak with the hood so it gave me that kind of vibe. And there was also a dancer in the cloak with a mask iirc that dropped to the floor at the end of the song.

Also the visuals on the screen had a book called “petal” and it kinda felt like it was symbolizing black magic

At least to me but also the memory is hazy now lol

Well, she also did kiss o' kill in 2007 (ball mask, cloaks, cross imagery) and kept it in the setlist for the non-Japan dates, didn't she? It's definitely not the same concept but it could also be seen as controversial.
Petal sounds like a highlight, I really hope we get to see it.

I wonder if/when we get to see photos of the actual stage and some of her costumes. Sometimes we got press photos & a few snippets of the show on TV, like with PoM18 or A^3, but I guess that was due to the anniversary stuff?

About the stage:
I loooove the catwalk!! I think it would've been nice if there was one in the middle, too, like with for AT03-04 but this is really cool and fresh. It feels good to see her do an arena tour again! I really wonder what the main stage looks like. Does it have stairs (e.g. AT10, AT13 or CDL16-17)?

The fact that she will tour places like Taiwan for the first time since 2008 is really exciting. Remember when she talked about doing another Asia Tour, circa 2015/6? Well, it's finally happening!
Let's hope everything will go safely!

I can't wait for the broadcast and the inevitable DVD! Here's hoping she keeps in most (if not all!) of the rare songs. Ayu has been very good to us when it comes to performing & recording unperformed/rare songs in recent years (kanariya, ever free, SAKURA, Bye-bye darling, It was, Return Road etc).

First picture is from Like a doll. I remember the clock in the screen, second one is maybe A song for xx

I'll put a quick review in spoiler just in case someone doesn't want to know

Spoiler:
00. Opening Movie (Ayu watching Earth and becoming an asteroid lol. Music was very NASA and theatrical. She wore the black sparkly dress from second picture and a hairy white coat)
01. Dreamed a Dream (Ayu Stand on a Huge Earth and sing. Same outfit as video)
02. Last angel (Mainly in catwalk, On stage there was fire. Also they added some chorus arrangement in the beginning)
03. A Song for xx (As usual, I think)
-----------------------
04. Real me (Costume from first picture. On screen they showed images from music video. They show the last choreo at the same time they were dancing)
05. Like a doll (They showed a clock going backwards on screen. Dancers did some dance routine I think)
-----------------------
06. NO FUTURE (She struggled a bit with high notes. I think she did a story with 2 dancers)
-----------------------
07. Sexy Little Thing (Kinda similar to Rock n roll Circus. Female dancers were in bunny outfits and she wore some king of sexy maid black outfit with bunny ears. Hikaru was performing with her. At some point another screen descended from the top covering them and showing a retro video game style video where dancers were trying to chase her and Hikaru went mad, become a beast and burned them. Very funny xD They appeared on catwalk after)
08. Fly High (As usual)
09. STEP you (As usual)
-----------------------
10. Pray (She wore a very big white dress with a hood and a blonde/pinky long wig. It was beautiful. She was alone on stage)
11. petal (As said before, dancers wore red cloacks and the V from Vendetta masks. It was like a fight? between her and one of the dancers. She wore a red dress kind of similar to Memorial Address one)
-----------------------
12. Memorial address (As usual. The dress spoil me lol)
13. Last Link (I don't remember this one very well. At this point I was still trying to assimilate it setlist was real xD)
-----------------------
14. My Way (feat m-flo) (She was sitting in a chair kind of similar to AT10 microphone one, probably the same)
15. Movin' on without you (As usual. Very energetic)
16. Feel the love ~ Many Classic Moments ~ Connected ~ Naturally ~ rollin' (In rollin, the big Earth randomly appeared again. The other ones was very energetic but nothing different as other performances. But it was lit)
-----------------------
17. 23rd Monster (They showed parts of the MV with the credits of the show and then they showed the tv from the MV but showing new footage of her with the intro look. She was stunning. In the end she popped out of the tv and walked to the front with the dancers. Then song started and they appeared from under the stage)
-----------------------
encore
18. SURREAL (Kinda sad she didn't scream Yo-chan here (you know, no band) but good to see this song back. I love it)
19. evolution (As usual)
20. MY ALL (They showed pictures from TA on screen)


I'm still like dreaming. Honestly, nobody expected a setlist like this.

^Thank you so much for the review! The show sounds really awesome. I wish I could attend this show

One question: does she use the TV prop on stage?

Wow, what an awesome setlist! So lucky the people who got to hear the rare songs! I wonder how she'll change up the setlist for the CDL (hopefully we get a broadcast).

Thanks for sharing the audio files of some of the rare songs!

It was the latter. I’m a FB friend of his. He never went into details, nor did I ever want him to. He is actually a sweetheart.

As I got some requests also via PM, here is Petal:



Since it is a major spoiler I don't feel comfortable uploading other songs unless they will be gone from setlist for good. Otherwise should have started by uploading full show lol
And please make mirrors as I plan to delete the file in 24 hours.
