After a 1-month delay, ayu-chan finally welcomes her tour’s opening day without incident.

ayu-chan has also reached Hiroshima safely, on JAL 1607 flight, departing Haneda at 11:28 and arriving in Hiroshima at 12:55.

Though I am not taking part in today’s show myself, I have been excited since morning, sort like like in a festive mood

More under the cut!

This is not a complete list, but it seems like this will be this year’s setlist.

However, as the live has yet to begin, this setlist may not be totally reliable.

The staging this year is said to resemble CDL’s last year.

And then, though the stage front faces South, it affords a good view as long as you are close.

There are also reports that the view from the stands is good too.

The live hasn’t begun yet, but there seems to be a sudden call for ayu from the audience.

The opening show for 「ayumi hamasaki ~ POWER of MUSIC ~ 2011A」 at Hiroshima officially started at 19:07!

Looking at this seating plan, it seems like the stage is placed right in the centre of the arena. The front of the stage faces Stand D, while the runway stretches back towards Stand I, resembling last year’s CDL stage.

And it seems like the stage is closer to the audience than ever this time.

Looking at the incomplete setlist posted earlier, seems like this tour will be focused mostly on singles songs, and most of the songs have been rearranged.

Could this be due to the sudden change in plans?

There was also no costume change.

Maybe this live was made with the affected regions in mind?

Thus, there were no costume changes, no encore, no MC and no Thank-you mail. She wanted to convey her message through music alone.

Her hairstyle was short, and make-up natural. Her voice also seemed to be in good condition.

The live this time seems to have garnered both positive and negative feedback.

Without MC, costume changes, and tossing of signed balls, the tour does seem a little bare, but many people have submitted positive feedback.

“The setlist rocks!”

“I’ve wanted to see such a simple show”

“The orchestra was really touching”

“Though this wasn’t an extravagant stand-out show, I was touched by ayu’s thoughts and wishes to give support to the victims through song”

and many more.

I have been stating that there’s no encore, but the last song ♪A song is born♪ was meant to be an encore song.

By the way, it seems like the audience sang along to this song, and ayu-chan cried lots.

The dancers who are taking part in this tour are

Dancers Shu-Ya, ZIN, Maro, Go-Mi, Kazuma, Aki, Midoring, KO, EMI, EKKO

Performers SYU, KUNI, SUKE3

The live this time is not as extravagant as usual.

But ayu-chan seemed to be able to convey her thoughts through songs. Her vocal training has shown results, with her voice coming out and stretching more.

Another highlight is the 23-man orchestra, with instruments like trombones and violins coming together to make wonderful sounds.

By the way, there are reports that songs have been rearranged, with a majority of them having a jazz flavour now.
