(Interludes are used during the concert... but they are musical. The MY STORY Classical versions of WONDERLAND and Catcher in the Light.)

Mini MC songs (most are 1 chorus only) (http://ameblo.jp/ayu-soulmate/entry-10885698626.html):
Hiroshima: poker face - YOU - Trust - TO BE - second day
Yokohama: poker face - YOU - first day / Key ~eternal tie ver.~ - LOVE ~destiny~ - YOU - second day
Fukuoka: poker face - first day / poker face - Key ~eternal tie ver.~ - second day
Osaka: MOON - first day / Love song - second day
Yokohama: Love song - first day / YOU - second day
Fukuoka: N/A - first day / BLUE BIRD - second day
Fukui: BLUE BIRD - first day / MOON - second day
Nagoya: N/A - first day / N/A - second day

01. forgiveness
Starts off a cappella, and then the 23 piece orchestra comes in. Entire song had acoustic feel to it.

02. blossom
Bossa nova styled, performed along with the dancers.

03. BLUE BIRD
04. monochrome
05. fairyland
Short versions were performed... was a bit of a medley a la CDL10-11's ballad one I guess?

06. A Song for XX
Felt like acoustic orchestra version. Great intonation on Ayu's part.

07. M
Very jazzy arrangement. Went up an octave in the last chorus and her voice was very beautiful sounding.

08. NEVER EVER
Sung in the original key... I think... sounds very close to the CD recording.

09. walking proud
Arrangement was similar to MY STORY Classical. Lots of audience members cried.

10. part of Me
Hasn't been performed in a while, people cheered when it came on. Sung better than recorded version?

11. Moments
Arrangement was like MY STORY Classical. Ayu's higher register was very beautiful.

12. vogue
13. Far away
14. SEASONS
It was thought that this trilogy would never be performed together again. Many were shocked.

15. Bold & Delicious
There was a bit of a talk with fans before this song? Different sides of the arena were to sing 'ya ga da wo etc.' and the song itself was surprising since most of the songs before this were gentle ballads.

16. Mirrorcle World
The intro of the song had a cheer of some sort, and her voice was very cool. Rockish feel to the song and fits Ayu's voice well.

17. UNITE!
18. evolution
19. Born To Be...
Ayu went down to the runway during Born To Be... and was crying. This is the set of songs where she introduced the band members and dancers. People were really energetic and the curtain lowered at the end of Born To Be...

20. a song is born
Curtain rose, and this song started. Ayu was crying towards the end of the song, and fans were to join in for a 'lalalala' session a la SEVEN DAYS WAR at AT10, I believe.

- The entire concert went straight through from start to finish with no costume changes, no interludes, and no thank you mail at the end. Ayu also wore very natural makeup and had a simple flesh colored outfit on?
- Some songs were very different from their original versions and are more orchestrated sounding with the 23 piece[?] orchestra (Yay, strings and brass!) and some had a jazz flair to them
- Ayu cried during a song is born
- Ayu "changed outfits" from the longer skirt to the short skirt for the summer medley onward
- Most setlists came with this: 衣装着替・MC・アンコール・サンキューメールはありませんでした | There were no costume changes, no MC, no encore, and no thank you mail
- Chisa [knee injury and will not dance anymore], Subaru, 2-YAN, and Kayanocchi were not present at the concert... some have graduated from the dance team?
- Born To Be... is when the streamers shot out into the audience
- There are screens in the concert, so they were not axed with the other elements
- Dancers and performers that were present -
<出演ダンサー情報>
ダンサー ☆ シューヤ、ZIN、まろ、ゴーミ、かずま、あき、みどりんぐ、KO、EMI、EKKO | Shu-ya, ZIN, Maro, GO-MI, Kazuma, AKI, Midoring, KO, EMI, EKKO

パフォーマー ☆ SYU、KUNI、SUKE3 | the people who played the clowns at AT10
- The show is about 2 hours long or so?
- from maikaru: Ive been reading on mixi more, and everyone is saying that most songs are not in their original arrangements. For example vogue is now latin style, and blue bird has been slowed to almost a ballad. There is no lasers or explosions, so some people said mirrorcle world is awkward... also bold and delicious seems to have some riffs from identity in it. Finally, many people thought @ the end of the show, that would be the time for mc, and when announce that please exit now etc came, so many people felt like "what??" And didnt know what to say. Its very rare for mixi to agree with ahs, but many people are feeling very mixed. On paper, the songs are great, but many of them are changed almost beyond recognition. (>_<) so... we will have to see. On another note, everyone is commenting how different her voice is,like its new, and they can definitely hear the change.

As soon as I saw that you said moments was like from My Story classical I said to myself... I dont care how much money it cost me to go to this! I have to see this..
I think that is the most beautiful version of that song!!
And then Born to be!!.. AHHH
So an amazing set list this turned out to be!
Lord! I wish this could of been down in the GRAND style that ayumi has done over the years... this concert is great as is, but it would be so EPIC otherwise!

Oh, I wish I could see this concert! Thank you for posting this information!

Though I'm having mixed feelings about this whole concert just by the end description of it...but once someone uploads it on youtube (about twenty gazillion years later ), then I shall see, right?

She wore a white tour T-shirt (the HOPE for JAPAN one?) with white pants? She also threw out a wristband this time.

This might have been only for a song is born though.

I wonder if she plans on adding more as the tour goes on??

Like each show she adds something else to the experience.. which would be an amazing build up to the final, but sucks for the people that went to the first concerts...

Or maybe she is just doing whatever she feels like at each concert... Like today i want to wear tshirt and shorts... tomorrow I will wear a dress?

Does anybody have any Audio recording at least? I wanna hear her new voice!!!

On the other side, i feel happy that they respect the concert and don't film or record with their cams, mobile phones, etc...

In my country... (Peru) every artist / singer that comes... you can see in the audience MILLIONS of lights coming from the cams... it's a bit embarassing because the next day... on facebook or social networks, you can see the ENTIRE concert... nobody controls that...

I went to the Miley Cyrus concert (Gypsy Heart Tour) and the next day i found everything on youtube (and very close!!! because i was at the very back of the "arena"... well i dont know how to say in english... it's "EXPLANADA" it's like a very big terrain and it's on the outsides not inside a stadium or colliseum...)

Maybe this time Ayu wants to feel more comfortable on stage, that's why she wore t-shirt this time

...

I'm very curious as to how her voice sounds.. The biggest talk seems to be that, apparently, her higher register has improved (intonation was great, went up an octave during M, etc.) and this I want to hear lol. I miss Ayu's higher voice. x)

I like this idea though. The concert sounded relaxed (I'm mostly pointing at the one costume thing) and seemed to have a good mix of songs. Hopefully this song list doesn't change too drastically. I'm tired of seeing "monochrome" on the list and then not getting a live recording of it.
