Trouble Tour spanning 2 years with this means it should be going till October 2020.

They used to say Okinawa will be the final stop of TROUBLE TOUR before the tour started. Now they suddenly told us they're gonna “extend” the tour until 2020 after the “final” was over? Wtf? Remember we used to have new tour themes every year, in this case I would just treat it as recycling last year tour theme.

You are talking about the original TROUBLE TOUR. Yes, I was glad to see various new stuffs there however it would be no more new if they're going to “extend” this tour. It is expected if many stuffs from the original TROUBLE TOUR is recycled. I would be more satisfied if she is extending POWER of A^3.

Number of her concerts attendees has been declining since 2015 and I believe one of the reason is because she have been toured a lot which made people didn't interested in seeing her live anymore. Fans in Japan also complained about she didn't release new songs nor new albums and recycled stuffs in concert. As a result she is not doing another arena tour this year. Like what I said in another thread I wish her to concentrate more on making new music but not just touring with old songs, at least not feel like she couldn't make anything new now.

She just want to tour, well....if that makes her happy. Maybe she will release new music (EP) this year? To support that misunderstood title.

It is kinda... underwhelming.
So I'm not sure we can expect new material soon.
She is not realizing new music and she is now extending tours. Misunderstood... yes.

I'm not sure touring that much is helping her ear and voice condition either.
At least she must be happy this way and some fans may be happy too...

Okay so i was in class but now that i'l back home I can say my feelings about this announcement.

Those last two years (2017 and 2018) have been the most boring for my ayu fandom because of the constant touring and lack of new music. I was really looking forward to the end of A^3 POWER OF MUSIC dates to see what would happen next.

For me it was a given that she would finally get back to releasing music because there was no excuse left for touring.

I mean look at the "excuses" she came up with in order to justify her tours with little new material since 2017 :
Excuse for Jtb tour : The fact that the 20th anniversary was coming
Excuse for POM 2018 : The fact that it was the 20th anniversary year
Excuse for TROUBLE tour : The fact that she released TROUBLE
Excuse for A^3 : The fact that the 20th anniversary year was coming to an end

I mean, now that 20th anniversary is over she HAS to do something, she has to keep us fans excited and release something new. But NO, she decided to come up with the laziest concept and extend the TROUBLE tour until 2020, i'm so disappointed.

TROUBLE was a scam because of only 3 new songs, the TROUBLE tour was a scam because in the end she didn't even sing the whole TROUBLE album despite being only 5 songs in it, and now this tour is the ultimate scam because she's too lazy to make new music so she's just extending a pre-existing tour as an excuse for touring again.

I'm really disappointed in her choice and i'm pretty sure a lot of us are, I mean most of us thought this announcement was a joke at first.

I love her so much so my disappointment really tears my heart apart but I can't help feeling the way I do.

I cant accept this. I can accept if she keep touring and not releasing new songs or etc. But really, another “TROUBLE” tour?? Honestly, her team should continue boosting on her popularity and attract new fans but instead they are doing the opposite.

name-wise I don't think it'll be about the album (miss)understood (because it's spelt differently and Lord knows spelling and capitalisation matter so much for homegirl); I get the impression that she's trying to say 'You guys did not understand correctly what I meant by 'TROUBLE'' (i.e. we misunderstood her) (idk)

overall reaction, I'm kind of exhausted seeing her tour non-stop for an ~album~ that only has so much material and one that doesn't sell that much (or at all) I agree with @attractive_nausea above, this seems to be a glorified excuse for her instead of producing new music. it also pains me to think that she's perpetuating the damage to her throat and hearing by continuing to go on this scream-fest until next year.

but what the fuck do I know, right.

The most disappointing thing for me is more that we're not hearing from Ayu herself. The reasons for no more new music, or why the tour isn't getting a new theme. If she wants to focus on touring and is particularly inspired by TROUBLE or doesn't have the funding for a different theme, then all power to her since it's her career, but it's just radio silence.

I know that sounds whiny and entitled, but it's my honest opinion on this. I'd love to have any kind of insight on her latest creative and professional choices. It feels like her heart isn't there anymore in her work and she is continuing touring to both connect to her fans, and because retirement just doesn't appeal to her.

There isn't really anything much wrong with that, she's worked so hard and nonstop so it's really whatever. I'd just like if she acknowledged this openly so I can adjust my expectations and stop this teeny tiny hope of a new full-length album around the corner. I'd even prefer a hiatus because her health issues are sometimes super worrying and I bet we barely know the reality behind what she has.

This is my emo fan rant for today done

What if she wanted to fix what (miss)understood did in the past by releasing new album calls misunderstood??
I could say STEP you, failyland, HEAVEN single did so well at the time, situation of her popularity suddendly changed once B&D single and (m)u album released.

Im not being negative to her but i just wondered why why and why title/wording "TROUBLE"(name of the album which contained only 5 songs will be with her for 3 years 2018-2020)and misunderstood?

She might tell us the reason soon as always but this tour title is really distracted my attention to join the concert, im sorry.

It says -misunderstood- after the TOUR 2019-2020 part so maybe the -misunderstood- part will change with each new leg of the tour? Similar to JtB.

2020 is a long time so that raises lots of questions for me, like how frequently the shows will be after the 2019 date we have.

I honestly don't post much anymore, but I would say I'd rather people are honest than not post. I think Ayu still had a lot of support here in general, and perhaps it's telling that there is very little hype for continued touring in Japan among her international fanbase.

I wonder why this TROUBLE Tour links to misunderstood

We should look at the lyrics of misunderstood and songs from TROUBLE.
