That could be the Blu-ray cover or something and I would not be mad. You can feel the urgency in the picture imo.

Yes, the initial setlist plus flower garden and TSMGO (but it probably won't be in the broadcast since she added it on the semi final and final shows), and minus Mr. Darling

I loved her vocals on all three days. It was the first time for me to see her live and I don't agree with the people who say that she can't sing. Just because she misses a few notes here and there (and I like that even more about her, she is not a robot after all) doesn't mean she can't sing.

She can announce extra bits later on . I think RnRC 7 days special was a surprise announcment, and some other tours where she's done an extra bits after a little break, or maybe she has a bigger surprise for us this year

So I got back home after 10 days spent in China and Japan. I attended the concerts on the 17th and the 18th. Over-all I had fun as usual, the crowd seemed way more excited on the 18th (also fewer empty seats) as it seems there were a lot more fans there (on the 17th there was a family of four which seemed bored to death, the girl even fell asleep somewhere around BRILLANTE...makes you wonder why they went in the first place). On the 18th I was next to a 50-year-old wearing a kimono who was the loudest among the crowd, the guy knew every song by heart and was really into it. I had way more fun that night as next to him I could scream as much as I wanted without feeling embarrassed!

Now the details - her voice was good~great most of the time. Vocally the best performances for me were FLOWER, You are the only one, vogue and evolution and probably visually too (the effects during vogue were really nice and all). The whole show, at least visually, reminded me of Music TV shows in Japan, kitsch and tackiness. Besides the kimono used during Survivor/Until that day... and the encore clothes I didn't really like any of the dresses/costumes, though the dress she wore for Brillante/Endless sorrow/Mad world section was pretty. (Survivor also sounded great btw ).

She struggled during the bridge of rainy day on the first day, on the 18th she managed to hit all the notes properly; You were, on the 17th was mostly shouting during the chorus, while on the 18th it nearly gave me the chills until she started crying and ruined it for me xD MOON sounded pretty amazing both times. She sang Days really well, but sadly that song never did much to me. Vocally the biggest surprise was definitely You are the only one - even though it's my least fave song from the new album, it was such a joy to listen to her singing it. She blew the crowd away with it.

Everyone seemed really excited for INSPIRE, You & Me and glitter (and way less excited about BRILLANTE...).

Anyhoo the only song which I kind of disliked the way it was performed was sadly Endless sorrow...she is simply doing it wrong. Everything is fine until the chorus starts as then she starts to scream uncontrollably which she doesn't have to, but still chooses to. I think she should go for the acoustic version in the future ^_^

The concert didn't really have a WOW factor and over-all I do prefer CDM (my fave tour). I was also really surprised when evolution started, she learned to handle the song so well~ Also the SURREAL part came after evolution was done...which was kind of weird and not really necessary,

Nearly forgot - during the encore the dancers taught us the choreo for Summer Love which is relatively easy compared to MY ALL's. During the encore I wasn't really expecting The Show Must Go On so when it started I got so pumped up as it became one of my favorite concert songs last year (pretty much the same performance as last year).

^ so happy to read that her vocals are improved. Still needs work, but I am really glad she is doing well. Thank you for your review.

edit; about leslie running up that stage... well ok. I guess she needed some great pictures. I hope it didn't ruin the visual aspect for the viewers, because I would get really distracted if random people run over the stage and the artist is more willing to look good, than perform properly. I hope this wasn't the case.

They give out free/complimentary tickets so that there are less empty seats, as you described.

IIRC, you can get free tickets from radio stations or from knowing staffers that are working at the venue.
