01 - GUILTY
01 - RAINBOW
01 - LOVEppears
01 - Duty

From mixi from Huaka:
Started Rule from the substage.
It's like last year's Asia Tour. Very flashy.
Ayu looks like she lost weight, but was very cute.
She cried during Days, and sang from her chest (I'm guessing her hand to her chest).
Ayu was like a kid during Next Level. Erm... looked very kiddy? No idea.
(There's something about Super Mario. She looked like Super Mario? Had a vibe of it?)
She was amazing (you know the kami-kanji god-like) and wore X-Men like sunglasses.
The new dancers were very nervous.
The costumers were very much like the Next Level jacket/booklet.
She also had a cheerleader like outfit?
Stage was simple, cried during Curtain call.
Ayu was on a radio interview talking about this year's live up until now is very different. Or it's going to be very different from now on or something like that. (the mixi member commented how she used all 14 tracks for the tour, maybe that's it?)
The beginning when she sang Rule was super cool, and she got goosebumps (audience member).
The new dancers also joined in on the My All dance.
There was no signed balls this time.
She danced during Sparkle (the no no no parts), but since it was the first day it was a bit clumsy?
During the time when they were doing My All and Shu-ya came out from the back, this mixi member yelled out super loud "Shu-ya you're terrible!" and "DISAPPEAR!"
Lots of people feel that while the setlist was good it wasn't enough.
When she sang In the Corner, Everywhere Nowhere, Hope or Pain, she wore a pink dress with a necktie that was similar to the PCDL one.
MC was very short.
She missed her lyrics or the music during Rule, so she sort of cried, and there were like 2 explosions. (The fire things)
People say that her costumes are very similar to previous tours.
There was some sort of electrical/technical failure for the opening movie.
The setlist/whole thing was sloppy but this mixi member's most memorable performance was In the Corner because the dance was so cool, Signal because it broke back a lot of memories, Everywhere Nowhere because of the lyrics love is not an illusion, and your dreams will come true, the light of your hopes/wishes will shine through, and Hope or Pain because it's one of her favorites and she was so happy she sang it.
They all think she sang the old songs because she did it for the people who didn't go [to the PCDL] and wanted to hear them.
Explosions for Rule and Identity.
The use of the screens was super extravagent.
There was silver tape (ribbons), so it was very pretty and colorful.
EnergizE costume was super cute.
Okay so the kiddy thing I mentioned earlier they keep saying "aka-chan" so baby Ayu?


From SunshineSlayer:
There was apparently several problems in the concert; some comments about the concert not being ready or something along those lines.

Apparently the big white dress got caught on something while she was walking.

There was some kind of problem with Rule as truehappiness mentioned.

There was no sound for part of Rollin'.

Some kind of problem with the lights and sound synchronization.

From tokyoxjapanxfan:
Quote:
the only part that I noticed being messed up was that rollin' didnt have her mic on for a small part at the beginning, but that's just what i noticed.

during bridge to the sky, there was a slideshow of ayu going from now all the way back to when she was a baby! never before seen picture of her as a teenager and child! i cried a little. hahahah

the mario part was the little movie before energize, the male dancers had baseball uniforms on and the girls were cheerleaders.

when she sang from her chest during days, it means it was a really deep and powerful voice. it was really strong

im tired so this is all i have to say for now. hahaha
01.Pieces of SEVEN
02.Rule
03.UNITE!
-outfit change-
04.Disco-munication
05.EnergizE
06.AUDIENCE
-outfit change-
07.Load of the Shugyo
08.LOVE 'n' HATE
09.identity
10.In The Corner

WE WISH?

Pieces of SEVEN ぴーす
Rule るーる
UNITE! ゆないと

衣装換え outfit change?

Disco-munication でぃすけ
EnergizEえな

List of speculation for now:
Pieces of SEVEN? taskinillusion?
identity? Will? GREEN? About You? EnergizE?
SEASONS? HEAVEN? Moments? BEAUTIFUL FIGHTERS?
Trust?
2ch, stop messing with my head. -blank-


People are supposing that GREEN is opening the show. vogue and Rule are also open for debate... seems like it's leaning towards GREEN though. Curtain call's also being brought up.. rain and an umbrella.. WOW someone mentioned t2m as the first song. LOL.

Some heard walking proud.. maybe?

Then on AT2010 he asked me to marry him. He was such a sweet. And Ayu gave us our blessings. She was also such a sweet. Now me and Maro are such a sweets together. Aaaw, how time flies.

So far, three different songs have been listed. I think they're making stuff up, but people seem to be guessing as to what the first song is. Some sort of umbrella is on stage?

Anyways, people are thinking:
GREEN / Rule / vogue... but a lot of people seem to be thinking GREEN will open the show.

GREEN makes most sense I guess, plus it was one of the best perfs on PCDL.

I think it's only part of the stage. The other half is probably like the diagram.

Oh, and Pieces of SEVEN seems to be on now.

What?! WILL?
