Congrats on winning ^^ I won both those as well which is interesting, because I thought they would be the most difficult.

Usually I win the 30th and not the 31st, but this time it’s the opposite!

We don't know the real reason, this was just a theory some fans had (and I don't even think the majority agreed). The general "consensus" seemed to be that something drastic (possibly tragic) happened in his private life, and that it didn't have anything to do with ayu

Seems ayu damaged her hand





「the show must go on」spirit

No matter what happens, accident or twists and turns, I can overcome it now and in the future, as I have always been.

I'm not alone.

Wow, I feel like it's been ages since she's had filmed interludes! Sounds like it might be a big concert!

That would be nice! What's the last concert that is considered to have had a theme? Would it be Cirque de minuit? Actually wasn't Made in Japan based around seasons?

I always loved the concept behind Hotel love songs, even though the execution wasn't perfect!

What theme would be good? I'd love a 'nature' based concert, divided in quarters between Air, Water, Fire and Earth. The statue at the end of the 23rd Monster PV also made me fancy a Greek mythology theme too!

I guess my opinion might not be very popular, but rather than concert having a theme or a concept I would by far prefer to have a live band playing instead of prerecorded back tracks with loud back vocals. :p

^From your mouth to God’s ears. I’d much rather have the band than the atrocious back singers, the gospel choirs, or pointless violins playing over the pre-recorded music on the back lol Not to talk about the unnecessary dancers which are cringy af to watch. Don’t think we’re getting a band this time, but I’m unstanning this woman if she doesn’t bring Yochan to her 25th anniversary.

Wow yes, you read my thoughts exactly! If she wants to pay all the countless dancers to be on stage jumping around, I am sure she can afford live band too. And since this time it's not a hall tour she can't use excuse that live band won't fit on stage with all the dancers jumping around xD

There is some speculation that a live band is too much strain on her ears, which might be why she has experimented with performing without them. Namie had some comments about this in the 2010s but I'm not going to go dig for that right now (about her own reasons - she didn't comment on Ayu ).

I'd love to see the return of the live band and I'm pretty sure Ayu would love to always have them there too if they can figure it out. The fact she has included them behind the scenes (such as during last year's Xmas Live rearrangement recordings) says a lot about her want to keep having the band involved. I hope there is a way to let them tour together again while safeguarding her health.

Also they were there for the TROUBLE CDL, so I think she likes having them around.

They were even on FNS' Ohia no Ki performance, when they're just decorative.

Very weird theory considering that a performer can decide themself what kind of audio track is playing in their in-ear monitors. You can customize it so that it includes only some of the instruments or has things that the public doesn't hear like that thing that counts the rhytm.

Band is a lot of people who need paymant. Plus extra people who will watch for outfits, hair/makeup, people who will deliver a lot of extra equipment. ayu stopped to bring band on tour way before pandemic and I highly doubt she will bring them at such time.

Omg, yes, this a thousand times! I thought I always the only one who felt like this. To me, they're a miss mostly of the times. Like, the violins, they ruined (m)u's performance on MFL x-x

There is only one truth, but not the only one correct answer.

I also thought about that but I have no information or knowledge about this particular point.
I also wish she would bring them back. But if this is the actual reason the band is not there, I'm perfectly fine not seeing them anymore, even if it's quite sad.

I swear most of the time I can't even hear them. Sometimes I even feel they are just here to decorate and aren't even recorded, just to make up for the band.
