ViVi May 2014 

ayuvogue:

As the PV database conversion enters the Rock’n’Roll Circus phase of Ayumi Hamasaki’s career, I am reminded that this month marks the fourth anniversary of the album. Furthermore, yesterday (4/11) was the fourth anniversary of Ayu-Vogue’s pilgrimage to Japan to finally see Ayu in concert after over a decade of fandom. 

These were unusual circumstances because the Rock’n’Roll Circus tour was announced before the album of the same name. Since I was attending the second date of what would be Ayu’s longest national tour yet, the album itself was still forthcoming when I saw the show. As a result, I had the pleasure of first hearing songs like “count down” and “Lady Dynamite” live. The setlist for the night that I attended is as follows. As you can tell by the final DVD/Blu-ray release, it changed during the concert’s obscenely long run.

  1. THE introduction
  2. Microphone
  3. alterna
  4. About You
  5. montage
  6. rainy day
  7. BALLAD
  8. count down
  9. Memorial address
  10. Don”t look back
  11. INSPIRE
  12. Because of You
  13. Sexy little things
  14. STEP you
  15. Jump!
  16. Lady Dynamite
  17. until that Day…
  18. SURREAL - evolution - SURREAL 

Encore

  1. Last Links
  2. Sunrise ~LOVE is ALL~
  3. Boys & Girls
  4. RED LINE ~for TA~

Our encore featured the introduction of ZIN’s plush monkeys, which Ayu used to teach the RED LINE ~for TA~ dance. It was cute, but I don’t think anyone in the audience knew how to do the dance.

I consider myself fortunate to be able to attend this particular show; while I’m sure my experience in the arena lends something to bias, I really think that the Rock’n’Roll Circus tour is far and away her best since (miss)understood in 2006. I’m looking forward to seeing her shake up the formula with this year’s “Premium Showcase,” even if I have to wait for the Blu-ray this time.
