I have been back from Japan for a while now but I haven't posted anything about the tour! I went to see her for the first time in Fukuoka and then Hiroshima. Thank you guys for those who bought my tickets from me in Fukuoka! I didn't manage to sell my 2 Hiroshima tickets (I did on Viagogo, but they wouldn't let me sell them because I had to pick up at the venue and they tried to give me a penalty fee that cost more than the tickets! I cut my bank details off the site and ran away), but overall it was only slightly more expensive than it needed to be...

Here are some pics! My boyfriend doesn't know many songs but he had a nice time anyway (and he was the one who caught the ball!). I was too busy crying. If I think back to it now, I start to cry as well. I have been an Ayu fan for so many years. It makes me upset that people niggle and complain over little things in the tour when she always puts on a stellar performance. There are always people who complain that she always plays evolution, but if I traveled 6000 miles and she didn't play evolution, I'd be a bit heartbroken. Y'all take her for granted sometimes.

I had a very good time! It might not have been 7 Days Special or something fancier, but it was still my first time seeing Ayu and that is special to me! I hope I can see more, but if she decides to retire I will still be thankful.

- same setlist

- I don't like that "Susana Vieira" hair, but... life goes on.

- We can't compare this concert to the original PoM. (and please, never compare to the DVD!) It was another vibe. The original was sad and serious, about lost, sadness and hope. This one was about joy, happiness and overcoming things. Ayu was laughing and smiling every time. We can see the difference in forgiveness. The end of BRILLANTE was different, this time she "defeated the demon". We can see a storyline in this concert.

- I don't think she was overdramatic the entire concert. The only one part that I was "gurl please stop" was the last part of Mad World. It was totally unnecessary.

- Loved the new versions of evolution (finishing the song with the lalalala was epic) and ever free, but NEXT LEVEL was really boring. The original one is more emotional.

- Yes, it was my first concert and I Cried in every song, even Catcher In The Light XD

- I never liked Curtain Call but the performance was really powerful. A good song for an encore.

- As always, she slayed in A song for XX. Amazing vocals, lights and performance.

- Saw again backstage people with the 2019 dates shirt. Maybe it will be an upgraded version for the DVD like the last PoM.

- Missed a new song for the 20th like Mirrorcle World and Tell All.

- how beautiful you are was the climax of the concert. An amazing performance and and made me think that it was a concert about overcoming as a lgbt+ person. It fits in the song choices and order with the storytelling and, for me, that was the power of music that she wanted to "project" with this concert.

- We always expect more of Ayu. Every concert she gave us something new or different or something BOOM like a new song with the big cross XD This was really about the essence of the lyrics.

- I wanted more? Yes. If she performed AT06 or RnRC 7 Days Special i would want more too. We will always want more. It's not my favorite tour but not a bad one.


Now I can't wait to go to another tour in 2020! (and really thinking about going to the "special final" in 19)

If DVDs are still a thing for Ayu. There haven't been concert releases for ages. I wonder why? Not enough people buying to bother? I thought at least super expensive TeamAyu releases were profitable.

I think itīs more likley a Complete Live Box Style Release with JTB + PoM.

It's probable that they just wanted to save it all for one big release.

They likely want to do CD+DVD/BD+LIVE again so Just the beginning's tour will probably come out alongside the album with CDL coming too as TA only or something.

''Made in Japan'' BluRay was released a year and a half ago. Last year, there was no album, no new material to promote, the tour was a filler and they probably judged people wouldn't care to buy it.

How coincidental that, before Power of Music 2011, the tour was changed in response to Tohoku earthquakes. Now, as she heads into the final two dates of Power of Music 2018, Japan has had another natural disaster with death toll around 200 deaths
