That's some serious dedication, Ayu. I can't even watch some of them where she had a bad day vocally and she decided to watch them all.

I hope she watched Premium CDL and thought "damn I did that" and just gives us that again.

Agreed. From the setlist to all the theatrics, that has to be one of my favorite CDLs she’s done as of late.

PCDL was great. The way she is making the hype for this year's CD makes me really excited as she seems to be pretty focused on it. Ugh, can't wait!

PCDL was and still THE shit.

As long as she takes cares of her voice until then and even end up lip-synching 90% of it, I'm all for her doing something like that again.

I personally never been a fan of PCDL, it has some moments but I find it too long and somewhat "flat".There is also a lot of playback in the show. That is said, I do enjoy the live versions of Powder Snow and Heartplace.

I'm gonna pile on all the love for PCDL with some more love because, ten years on, it's still one of her very best shows. I can do a three-hour TED talk on why I love this show but suffice it to say that the song selection is INSPIRED (starting with GREEN? continuing with Will? medleys of And Then and Naturally, and SIGNAL–Hana–too late? WHAT A CONCEPT). Fuck I love PCDL and I hope she does something that feels as fresh as this.

I've never been a fan of PCDL. I think there are some performances that works pretty well as a standalone (like And Then / Naturally, Will, End of the World / Heartplace), but the whole concert seems "flat" and disconnected, even for a CDL. And the visuals don't appeal to me at all (I'm used to some "cheesy" or "over-the-top" looks from her, but "Who" performance's look is atrocious).

After that, she delivered a lot better shows imo.

PCDL has some of her worst outfits ever, the concert is overly long and most of it is lip synched. I do love some individual performances on it, as I also love she performed several stuff she never did before, but as a concert, thats a mess.

I'm totally in for more register of her fucking up her lip sync though, as those are always funny.

tbh the pre-recorded vocals are welcomed at this point.

Do It Again and Wake Up are also very underrated with great openers.

I like Wake up too! And I agree with the pre-recorded vocals for some portions of songs or few songs but not too much.

Pre-recorded back vocals sure. I go to her concerts to listen to her scream, shout and fall apart on stage and I am not paying for a recording.

PCDL was the one when she had injured her hand, wasn't it? iirc that+medication was the reason she didn't sing live some stuff and all. I wonder if today ayu wouldn't have cancelled that, it was such hard-working putting the concert off being recently injured. I do agree the concert could have been longer and has some tacky outfits, but I enjoy most of it, especially cause of the song selection. That CDL should have been extended into a TA Tour so bad.

I think she probably just didn't remember the lyrics of all those songs she doesn't perform often. But this is jus my opinion.

wow I loved PCDL so much, I think it was one of her best. I actually don't remember the outfits at all but I really enjoyed all those old songs she sang. I even have that concert recordings in my Apple Music library. I especially love that transition from SIGNAL to Hana and how she linked And then and Naturally.

Yes it was. She had the nude colored cast with crystals on it. She passed out afterwards because she was so exhausted and in agony with the pain medications wore off. Yes the show was all over the place, but so what. She was churning out amazing shows artistically still at that point and at her peak. At least that CDL was entertaining eventhough a couple of the outfits were odd. Green/Will absolutely breathtaking! Her shows have been very blah the past few years and I still say that her not performing at a nation really took a hit with her career. I wouldn’t be surprised if CDL doesn’t sell that many tickets
