I went to both the noon and evening concert, so the review is just for the evening concert. There's only a little difference between the noon and evening concert.01 ECHOES/呼喚
She sang a mix of the Japanese and Chinese version. Good thing I attended the evening concert cause I was bawling my eyes out for the noon concert. When that melody starts playing and the light shines on her, tears just automatically came out. She wore that gold Tibetan dress we've seen her in a lot (even though she said she was putting that dress to retirement before haha)
*For the noon concert, she wore a blue Tibetan dress02 久遠の河
Normal performance meaning she was perfect! It would have been awesome if there was a strings section for this like her previous concerts! She just had a normal band this time.03 明日への讃歌
I was reborn during this! I started crying again when she wailed...LIKE WOW! Everyone, please hear her wail at least once before you die...cause then you can die knowing you've experienced the most beautiful thing in the world! I'm crying just thinking about the goosebumps I had!!!! She was sooooo on point! It was better than the 1st concert and JPB LIVE! 04 MC
They had this lady from Avex come and she introduced videos of alan performing on Chinese TV since she left Japan. They talked a long long time, but alan performed a bit of a Tibetan folk song and the last line of 青藏高原 (which is the best part haha)05 宿命橫著寫
This was the new song that alan performed haha, but WOW! This song was soooo amazing live! She added a bit of Beijing-opera-style of singing into it and it was so good!!!! Definitely one of the highlight of the concert!!!!06 Love Song～きっともう一度～
Before this song, alan said that we can all take pictures of this performance, but just make sure we don't record a video.
(Is it because it's not an Avex song? haha)
*For the noon concert, she sang 鳳凰
alan exits and come back in a poofy-ish white dress
*For the noon concert, she wore a red dress07 Over the clouds
During this song, she told us all to get up! But the Japanese fans didn't really know how to move to it, so they just swayed and clapped? lol08 空唄
We were still standing up...so still swaying and clapping haha09 群青の谷
My god, this song was perfection!!!! I moved to this more than Sora Uta xD
SHE WAS AMAZING!!!!!!!!! Yeah yeah, definitely hear this song live before you die as well!10 桜モダン
OMG THIS SONG! It's so good live with the band! For the whole song, she was swaying and moving her hands in a delicate way...like cherry blossoms floating down! It was beautiful!!!!!
*This song wasn't performed for the noon concert11 my life
We were all waving our lightsticks and just entranced by her voice. During the second chorus, alan just kinda stopped and she started crying. Everyone started shouting "ganbatte, jiayou" and I think that made her cry some more. I'm pretty sure every fan in that hall cried along with her. But she pulled out of it and finished the rest of the song
alan exits and comes back in the concert t-shirt12 幸せの鐘
She sang a mix of the Japanese and Chinese version.13 懐かしい未来 ～longing future～
You know how people get tired of Ayu singing evolution, but that's only because they haven't experienced it live. This song is definitely a concert staple and I see why now! Everyone is singing along during the last part and it's just something you have to do at an alan concert!
I told her "thank you for fulfilling my dream" and alan said "little panda!"
That was enough for me!
There was a staff member pushing us along, so no one could really talk to her. I don't blame them because so many people to shake!
Oh oh! During the evening concert, Avex staff held up a sign for alan to read and it said she'll come back in the winter for another concert! It was a surprise to alan!
And before the noon concert, I met Kunio Nakayama (he recognized me!), Kazuhito Kikuchi, and alan's Chinese manager!
When Kikuchi-san came out, I kinda ran up and called him. He just politely bowed a bit and walked away. Eek, I scared him away haha
But when he and Kunio-san came back from their smoke, Kunio-san translated for me that I only wanted a picture with him hehe
Ah! And when I took a picture with alan's Chinese mananger, Kunio-san photobombed us xD
I'm too lazy to post pictures of my goods...but Kunio-san told me they will soon be available on mu-mo
