I also loved when her mama mode kicked in holding the lil child. That alone would have convinced me that she would announce retirement 😂
Yea her holding the child was so cute!!! I almost thought it was her son. 😂

I love this big news actually

I had experience living for 1 year in Sapporo (Hokkaido) in 2012-2013 and I remember Namie came there with her 20th-anniversary dome tour and also AKB48 and Arashi came but ayu never did. if I was still living there, I would be sooo happy and excited!

I kinda love this idea of touring every 47 prefectures in Japan. makes me think that she wants to gain back her popularity in Japan I'm so relieved she didn't announce her retirement or didn't say that tour would be the last. I guess she'll be like Seiko Matsuda, not like Namie Amuro. I only hope that her health will be OK so she can manage all concerts in all prefectures without any problems

The Yochan surprise was very real for Ayu.

Interesting fact: Yochan said that the new guitarist is his kohai!

It's not what we expected (she even trolled us showing Earth globe before the announcement lol), but she wasn't making much ado for nothing, it's really big for her and her fanbase.
thank you, this was how I've been taking the news, as well. the all-47-prefecture tour is unprecedented ("first") and probably not something she will attempt again ("last"). to me, the news makes sense. plus I'm just relieved that she wasn't announcing a retirement.

The show was great but it wasn't my favourite. I think it was just because I got shafted with bad seats again. I cried when Yochan gave her the flowers!

I'm glad she's doing a tour of all of the prefectures. It gives me more of a chance to get better seats and I don't have to fly up to Tokyo, haha. I'm currently groggy in the airport.

I don’t know how vocals sounded on abrma TV but in the arena, she sounded fine and even if she didn’t on the high notes, it was nearly impossible to tell as the music was so loud the sound was distorted. But it wasn’t bothering me, it was just really loud, loved the live band sound over pre-recorded anytime

I had terrible seats, 2nd floor towards the back lol.
And the screens were barely visible, and I could barely make out her face lol

But, I’m glad I went. I was very happy and surprised to see Yocchan

I guessed the surprise though haha it’s really a great thing for her to do for her Japanese fans. I plan to go to a few of the shows! Would looove to go to one in Okinawa and combine it with a little vacation haha.

In terms of the set list though, well… honestly a bit sad she didn’t sing any of the songs during the strings section. Literally all the ones I was hoping to hear lol. But I loved Lady Dynamite, and was happy to hear Game, alterna and heartplace!

OK, I am going to receive hate for this as always, but it was an ordinary Ayu concert vocal-wise. Ear plugs let me hear all her misses. She did very good on some ballads, singing in a quiet way, but overall lots of screaming, going off-key, improper technique, baby voice, forced vibrato, struggling with high notes, etc. Nothing like her pre-recorded TV performances which tend to be actually good. But the show itself was very enjoyable. It felt great to be allowed to sing along again. We were going wild during the remix section. And dancers came to our seats multiple times.
Camera operator was next to us and he was filming 2 foreign girls in cosplay. He zoomed in into a necklace for like a minute.
Monitors with song lyrics were very visible on stages, it was fun to watch them.
MC was very funny, especially when ayu asked if Yocchan planned to eat the whole cake. And holding a baby moment was adorable.

Although I did feel a little bit sad when she announced the 47 tours in Japan instead of Asia Tour(fan from Taiwan), later I thought her fans across Japan didn't miss her less than us, of course she will need to meet them before she goes on any further tour plans...

Cuz I'm also the fan of Adele, I had already give up the thought that she will hold a world tour LOL

Anyways I've been waiting for Ayu fro 15 years, I can still wait...LOL

Is my string of crap seats to do with how long I've been in the fan club? I have had membership since 2021. I haven't had good seats since I was an international fan club member in 2018 and flew from overseas.

My seats werenít great but werenít bad and I only joined TA the day the ticket lottery application started so think itís all random.

I've heard the international fans get better seats. Did you apply from overseas or within Japan?

Did someone ripped the Abema broadcast?

I found it on Bilibili but quality is not the best.

Just off topic. I realised blackpink concert was held on the 8th at Tokyo dome too. Cos I saw some ayu fans mentioning they wanted to go for blackpink’s tour, but they skip it cos of ayu.
