Same with Haru Yo, Koi.

EDIT: Just wanna say that I don't think this is a bad thing. She's always done this and if it allows to let her voice a rest during the show, that's great. As long as it sounds good and helps her, I'm happy.
Spoiler:
Obviously they could use vocals from another date to match the footage of the first show, but I really doubt it was lipsynched this time — not entirely, at least. When she falls down to the ground during the last part of (miss), her voice even fails and we can her they raised up choir vocals to cover it up.

I just rewatch the concert and for me (miss)understood is live OR it sounds live to me and it's the most important thing; But I'm pretty sur Return road & Haru yo koi are lypsynched because it sounds reaalllly clean and Voyage after sounds more natural with more breath, vibrato, and some off-key moment. Talking about Haru yo koi, if it was lypsynced this is extremely well done.

Spoiler:
while I admit that lip-syncing is not off the table, I do think that she didn't do it this time for reasons that summerain has explained. I was convinced of this since the beginning—her voice shook and went off key at the first few lines of 23rd Monster.

as for some songs that sound too clean, I think she just nailed it the Dreamed a Dream performance from a-nation 2020 also sounds like this to me. it has almost no vocal slip-up. since then I was just convinced that ayu is just a dependably capable vocalist when her voice is not overworked.

of course the alternative is that, like summerain said, they patch together the vocals from all three shows to assemble the best sounding performance

ジェットコースターブロックと呼んでいました。気持ちのアップダウンが激しく、隅々まで大胆に且つ丁寧に伝 えないと、ともすればただのまとまりのない三曲になってしまうので。

実はこのブロックの照明とカメラワークが1番難しく、本番ギリギリまで苦戦していたのですが、スタッフチー ムが力量大爆発させて下さり本番はさすがの一言でした👏✨✨

何故この繋がりになっているのか、真のメッセージは何なのか、全員の渾身のパフォーマンスから是非考察して みて下さい🧠

壮大で美しすぎて胸がギュッとなる、刹那の極みが詰まったブロック。

ゲネプロの日、私がちょうど会場に入ったらゴリちゃんが照明チームや映像チームとこの場面の最終調整をして いて、あまりの綺麗さに思わず「うわっ」て声が出たのを覚えています。

先ほど、23時59分をもって配信LIVE終了いたしました。

わたしがステージを創り続ける理由は、誰かの上に立つ人間になりたいからではなく、誰かの下に立つ人間にな りたいからでもなく、

ただひとつ、もしも叶うなら、誰かにとっての、何かにとっての、暗闇を照らすほんの少しの光になれたら。そ れに尽きます。

たとえ自己満に聴こえたとしても。

そうしてまた、ステージを創ります。

Haha that's so true. And yes, a discount for ticket purchasers would be nice...but I wouldn't count on it. Theoretically TA is the only group to see the show so it makes sense to do a general release, but they don't seem to do what we think they're going to do so you never know. I wonder if there will be a TA special version or bonus (besides another Tshirt and fancy cardboard box)

Finally getting round to watching the rest of the live, and I had a proper fanboy moment when she started singing the 'lala' at the end of evolution (that is at the beginning in the recorded version).

Just because she hardly ever sings it live, I was happy to hear it for once!

She did that exact same version during POM 18. I loved that she also did it here.

I'm ashamed to say I still haven't watched that! I only saw ever free, but this makes me want to watch the rest!

It's far from being her best concert, but I have an special feeling for it. The new arrangements (evolution, ever free, a bit of how beautiful you are and NEXT LEVEL) are great.

I really enjoyed the concert! Especially the stage, it gave the concert a different sort of feel.

At first I was a bit wary of the cutesy voice but thankfully it was the right side of cutesy! It was nice to get a performance of (miss)understood again!

Just making a revival here but one point that I read few people commenting is about the arrangements of some songs with the chorus and orchestra. I really love it. She may not have a live band but the the strings and orchestra really made up for me, Return Road and Voyage sounded incredible for example.
