That medley sounds pretty awesome

How was her voice like? Did she lower the pitch in some songs like in Natsu/Saigo no Trouble?

And the dress she wore for Pray might be in my top list of costumes. It was a beautiful, white, bejeweled hooded dress, with fur cuffs and she had a long, cool toned white-blonde wig. It was so pretty.
That sounds marvelous

Also, happy birthday to Ayu!

I just came back home. Crazy day lol
The concert was INSANE. It was one rare song after another. She didn't let us breath. And it was so funny seeing the audience very surprised everytime a song started.

The intro with Dreamed a Dream and the big planet Earth was epic and the electro medley was everything. Connected!!!!!

It’s the first tour in so long that I actually want to see again lol.
I think she really hit a great balance with the set list. Old + new, rock, pop, ballads, happy, dark. For several years I felt her tours leaned very dark, so this was very welcomed for me!

Her voice had ups and downs. From my memory, the beginning of Pray, for example, was nearly perfect to the recording, but she did have some pitch issues as it progressed. No future might’ve been the toughest song for her…

But overall I do think she did well. That being said, the venue can make a huge difference in how a concert sounds.

Actually I did record the full show, not sure how it sounds on recording yet as I didn’t listen to it xD.
For me the show was okay. The big planet earth in the beginning was a bit ridiculous and during some songs like Sexy Little Things it was hard to keep track of where is Ayu on this big stage with lots of dancers around her dressed kind of similarly.
Her vocals were quite fine for the most part, indeed Pray started nearly perfect and then… well i won’t discuss her pitch, I enjoyed a lot hearing that song live :p
But the venue can make a huge difference. From where I was standing the sound in Dreamed a dream was horrible with her voice almost indistinguishable. Looking forward to CDL show in Yoyogi as that venue seems to be better - but I doubt Last Links or Pray will survive in the setlist for CDL.

Fun fact, as I was on the first row of stand I think I have seen Max Matsuura? There was some staff guy in white stripped jacket going between technician area or just watching show alone from under stand area lol

PS. I found Petals to be the most beautiful performance of this show. She looked great and everything happening on the stage seemed well thought of. I am not sure I am fan of Pray dress or her wig during that song though.

Not for No Future. I feel like she struggled the most and to me sounded the worst.

I feel like Like a Doll was really good!

And I think My Way deserves a mention, she sang softly and I think it really suited her.

About reducing songs from encore I could believe as the show started almost 30 mins later due to ticket app issue. Although there was no MC at all so I think that is what got cancelled.

Petal was the best performance of the whole tour as for me (apart from songs that didn’t feature special stage set up like Memorial Address and Last Links where it was just Ayu singing). They can literally cut any other performance but please keep petal lol.
