TA blog, 18.12.2020

As announced by Avex yesterday, there is a lot of discussion about whether or not to hold a countdown live.

To be honest, my personal feelings as an artist, Ayumi Hamasaki, have already been decided for Christmas live and countdown, as I have already told the company team.

I think everyone understands it, but there are so many people involved in both of the events, and it's not easy for me to just say "Yes, let's do this."

A lot of people are still working, and I would like to use this weekend's time to discuss everything, to then report on Monday with an agreement in good order and feelings.

Until then, please wait a little longer.

I understand that how much thought, time, and everything we have put into it is the same not just for us, but for all of TA.

But nothing is more important than everyone's life.

With that in mind, we will continue to discuss what comes next.

Thank you for waiting.

ayu

I think its time to record a new album. To share her feelings with new music. Time to be creative has come. Cmon ayu, its very sad but its not a time to make concerts.

I can sort of imagine how it would go down, based on her announcement for TROUBLE: she would announce something like "I'm now BRIMMING with FEELINKS and READY to BIRTH a new ALBUM that encapsulates my THOTS from the past THREE YEARS"

and then turns out it's a mini-album with only three songs

I’m sorry but did anyone seriously NOT see this coming? Japan’s numbers have clearly been on a terrible uptick and even my mom had to shut down her shop in Nagoya in response to it. Anyone who thinks they can get away with holding a freakin non-essential event at this time is plainly just unaware that we’re in a global PANDEMIC.

It would still be the same issue. Packed buses v. packed trains.

Rescheduling for a different day seems like it could be difficult because maybe people who bought the ticket for the 31st did so because they can only actually go on the 31st. And even if there isn't anything else booked at the venue, I'm sure there are still fees involved. Rather than rescheduling for a different day, it might be rescheduled for the same day but just to end earlier and then have no countdown - I see that or audienceless streaming most likely.
I’m sorry to hear that. I wish Japan struck down with firmer responses as opposed to mostly “suggesting” people what to do.

It depends on the country/city policy: we've been having concerts in my city for months and the cinemas are open too (with half empty rooms as a requirement), while the Covid-19 situation is bad here.
Again, probably taking a crowded bus is more dangerous.

Guess it was a last-minute decision.

Leaving it to Monday, I feel like they will proceed with the concert although maybe it will be online only. Everyone would feel terrible if cases were linked back to the concert and cutting transport just makes it needlessly difficult to people to move around.

Working from home seriously needs to become "a thing" for more people. I'm very lucky and have been working from home since April with minimal issues. Although I wish I had a better job to be taking home with me lmao

One of her CDL that I attended was delayed by like an hour or more (they didn't let people in on time), so why not start much earlier? I get that they will have to do without an actual countdown and some people can't make it early because of their work, but it's still much better than cancelling the event with real public.
If she wants she can even perform again after that just for the live broadcast.

you still have massive crowd that squeezes in trains afterwards.
the decision should not only be made in face of the transport problem but also the much worse covid problem as it´s gotten worse since the CDL was announced.

I wish they would just stream both concerts without an audience and allow everyone to buy a ticket. I'd love to watch the Xmas Live on Christmas Eve.

The thing is it's not just more people getting covid - they are running out of beds and it's a very real, scary problem to have:

Here in NYC we had to use rental moving trucks just to store dead bodies when Covid was at its worst here. Sit on that for a second

I will be really disapointed with her if both concerte still have an audience in face of the current issues.

Yea, well, in that case I'd obviously prefer her to perform without an audience and just fill up the seats with lightsticks. I know I said I'd rather have her perform earlier but with an audience but I didn't really know how bad the situation is over there, as well. I thought Japan was handling it quite well. Things are really bad here, so concerts aren't even up for discussion – seeing as Japan is struggling, too, it only makes sense to have her perform without an audience. That way all of the team's hard work won't go to waste either.

Ayu's show is one and done, but crowded public transportation is a daily life. I probably wouldn't attend myself, but I don't see it as something very dangerous if you follow the rules.

People taking risks daily isn't a valid reason to putting them through MORE risks. Even more for a totally superfluous reason like a music concert.
