I wonder if the title change has to do with the delay (switch from Love songs to support a new project) or the conservation of resources (can't do the grand hotel theme).
I don't think it's conservation or whatever. I think Ayu believes it's not the time to have like Hotel Love Songs tour, because people call it Love Hotel Tour, etc, and actually it's just bad feeling right now... I think it needs to be more serious, with a better message than hotel and fun feeling... it's like what she did with I Am... album. She made it more serious and have a message. I'm not saying that Hotel Love Songs tour might not have a good message or something, but it just needs to be more meaningful, because many people in Japan have lost their homes and everything they have, and so... I don't know how to explain in english ahaha, but it's the right decision.

It seems like she is changing everything about the tour, so perhaps Hotel Love Songs didn't fit the tour contents any longer.

I agree with everything you said here.

Maybe she'll actually move in a new direction again, like in 2001? I wouldn't be surprised.

Even though I stick to my previous comment, I agree with you. And I think the tour might sold more if she'd change... well, pretty much everything. Make it Japan-themed People would appreciate it.

Reffering to the I am... -year. Ayu, after 911, chose to go with a different theme with the I am... -CD. She changed the covers, even though they already had everything set for another theme. She made it about peace (with the dove etc.) and wrote the song A Song is Born.

^correct me if I'm wrong

ARENA TOUR 2011 ~Love songs for JAPAN~ ok sounds cheesy. but i find it a pity that she spent so much time rehearsing and then she decides to change everything. all effort gone down the drain.

i think we can expect a less lavish concert set up this year.

Don't lose your hope yet. She might still use some or use them another time/year.

^ It'd be silly to exclude those songs They're fan favourites and more importantly, concert-goer favourites. And singing uplifting songs like those that really unite the crowd would be really great at such a time in Japan.

But it's really interesting that she's changing things up so significantly. Can't wait to see what'll happen, but I think we're all going to be curious about what the (now-mythical) HOTEL Love songs tour would have been like

So first, I knew it would be postponed, but then I did not even knew that the Osaka, Nagoya and Shizuoka concerts in April are about to be postponed also. Now I'm hearing that the concert stage could be redesigned? Now what in the world is that? Of course we here at AHS are not part of the stage staff, so this means that even I'm not seeing the stage that would have been used had the earthquake and tsunami did not happen...

You are right and i agree with 100% Do not add HOPE or anything.. its jsut.. no.. thats not the theme of the album or anything like that. But i dont know what she is going to change it to, but of course with Love Songs you can have any kind of theme.

I dont want to fly all the way out there and not hear evolution.. the other two im fine with, but she has to sing the staple song for sure.

I honestly really don't think this tour is about Love Songs album anymore. She's been really impacted by the tsunami and earthquake, and she's been talking about giving hope and love to everyone recently. Everything she is posting in Twitter points to this theme, so I know some of you guys don't want it, but I really think this time the concert's theme is gonna be "Hope." I mean even her charity t-shirt has just "Hope" on it.

Maybe she'll do two tours. Like in 2002 -> Arena Tour and Stadium Tour. Love song tour and Japadium tour

Actually, I'd like that. As long as she won't call it "Japadium Tour"

I am actually touched by her decision to change this year's stage, theme, title and everything. I think Love songs is a good album, but right now Japan and everyone impacted by the earthquake and tsunami need something more than that. I think the main message would be using music to deliver love and hope.
