You have to be in TeamAyu to buy tickets online from the overseas. You can always get them in LAWSON or at the clerk desk in front of the arena. There are also people selling them before the show.

for the halls, how big will it be like? Only attended her concert in Fukui and TA concert

Edit: goggled fukuoka's and realized it's a performing hall, does that mean no special ayu stage?
I've seen Namie and Gackt both in hall tours and you can still do a lot with the stage. Ayu could still do most of the stuff that she does, it'll just be smaller versions. Most of the halls I've been to were about 2,000 to 3,000 seaters.

Would it be too late for overseas to register for TeamAyu?
There has been an international version of TeamAyu for a few years now, so no, you don't need a japanese address to purchase tickets, you just need to join the international team ayu and you'll get to enter the lottery for tickets along with everyone else. I think the cutoff date for joining Team Ayu and getting tickets already passed earlier this month though. I assume that was just for these initial 15 dates however.

I'm pretty sure these gaps between the shows are not final, they're likely to add more dates between already announced shows. I think they have hard time figuring out available dates and booking venues, which is causing delays.
This whole announcement mess reminds me of AVEX not being able to upload short making of video of Zutto for many, many months.

I think you're right. It seems really off that she starts the tour in Yokohama, and then takes a whole month to play Yoyogi, just 40-50 minutes away in Tokyo.

I imagine there will be dates in between.

IDK... for me Hall venues sounds like... cheaper production... And I am kinda sad... Is this the Anniversary tour or The anniversary is next year? This is so unclear. i was expecting like a monster tour for the 20th anniversary.

Hall tours doesn't mean it will necessarily be cheaper production. Many artists deliver high quality performances in halls. Example: Koda Kumi

Actually... that is exactly what i fear ... I find her tours way cheaper looking than recent Ayu's Arena tour.

I suppose it's all down to personal taste then. It's a grey area between personal style and production value.

EDIT: Oh I should mention, I'm not trying to compare ayu's tour style and kuu's style. What I mean is I don't see a decrease of Koda's production value between her own area tours and hall tours. So I expect that Ayu will not have a decrease in value between her own arena and hall shows either. If that makes sense.

I can understand your point. I love Kumi unconditionally (even if I dislike her recent releases) But I always felt her live concert felt underwhelming. She is a great performer... Vocally stronger than Ayu and a better dancer... but I find her staging, tour concepts and stage design way below Ayu's ones. Is it because Ayu has a bigger budget... or better ideas... better team... or because Arena tours gives her more potential... I can't tell.

Also, Ayu's Hall TA tours are way less impressive than her Arena tours.

Yes!!! FINALLY we have some dates, although it's a little odd that they're so spread out. I wonder if she'll add more during this timeframe or if she plans to cram the 45 other dates between autumn and spring.

I'm planning to attend the May or June shows

Thank you for posting them!

Ah, I see your concern about the TA tours. I can't speak for all the venues in those tours but only the ZEPP ones. Much more restricted due to the "small live house" type building. But, if she performs for example in halls located in convention centers (as I suspect) she shouldn't have that problem. Here's hoping ^^

That's great to have dates but it would be nice to know if they will put the other 45 after those ones or in between...

there's an error on the first page. she's playing in naruto city, not tokushima city. (
徳島:鳴門市文化会館 - naruto shi bunka kaikan)

it is such a dive! why naruto. i went there last year for kuu's tour, the venue is old, run down and one of the tiniest halls i've ever been to, it doesn't even have a second story.

anyway.

looks like i'm going back to nagoya again this year. the things i do for ayu!

The promo picture for this tour looks SO GOOD!
And I really wanna go see her in this tour, but I'm not even part of TeamAyu... Maybe it's time for me to enroll and try to get a ticket later on this year in the other 45 shows...

Getting mirrorcle world vibes right now

They ask me
"The beginning or the end?"

Is it because I've become strong
That I can be without tears
Or ... ?
