I heard a demo of the song. She’s really going back to her pop days with this one. I’m super excited XD She’ll make it awesome, I just know it!

Man, whichever album these singles will be on will be AWESOME. That’ll be a must-buy. I hope “L” will be epic.

Lady Dynamite PV looks and sounds nice ;p A crazy director though ^^. Also, it seems that the album will only have 1 intro and 2 interludes, that is only 3 non-full songs on the album, usually there are 4 of them lately. So that means more new songs! ;p more »

As always, this latest release of hers has managed to top the Oricon Charts yet again
I’ve already seen the music video of both these a-side tracks and I must say they are both awesome! Especially BALLAD. That song should win her the “Song Of The Year” Award at the Japan Gold Record Awards.

I am so excited for this album! The Flash
drive looks completley amazing! I loved
both of her singles for this album and I
just can’t wait! GREEN is my favorite out
of all the songs though… and the
pre-chorus for Rule was good also. Sparkle
is just what she needed to revive her
“poppiness” and Days was very beautiful in
everyway! YAY!!!

Hey !

01/13/09 @ 10:04
Comment from: peter  

The easiest way to get tickets is to buy your ticket in one of the reseller shops in Tokyo. They re-sell the tickets from other people for a (usually) higher price. But, choice is limited.
Another way, a bit more difficult (but certainly not impossible, as I did it too) is to buy form Yahoo Auctions. But you would have to use a third party service in japan, as sellers on YA don’t ship overseas, or if you know someone who lives in japan, so can have them do it.

I swear you forgot some dates. On the website it also says that she’s playing 4th and 5th of May at the Nihon Gaishi Hall in Nagoya.

Oh, sorry, I must have been looking at the wrong year! Because they hadn’t updated the schedule yet. I’m so dumb. I’m 16 and British and visiting Nagoya in late April and I was hoping and praying that she would of had a tour at the Nihon Gaishi during that time. I’m trying to find out about the Fukui Sun Dome gig but as I live in Britain I have absolutely no idea about the process of buying tickets…

Hi.. i’m just curious.. what is the price range of ayumi concert? are we able to book the ticket in singapore before we fly over?

05/31/09 @ 04:12
Comment from: peter  

Price range depends on which block you’re in. The closer to the stage the more expensive it gets. For A-block tickets, prices range from 30-100k yen, for B-block tickets, prices range from 15-30k yen, C-block tickets, from 10-20k yen. Prices are this high, because they are second hand tickets, and it’s practically impossible to get official tickets (as they are already sold for months anyway).
You cannot book tickets from outside of Japan, you have get them at a ticket reseller shop in Japan. The only well known reseller shops that we know of, are the ones in Tokyo, but they only sell tickets for the greater Tokyo area. This is the url of three reseller shops in Tokyo: http://www.yokohamaticket.co.jp/ticket/ticket-music.cgi They have a shop in Ueno, Shinjuku and Shibuya.

I would like to share that for the 1st Ayumi concert which I ever been to (10yrs anniversary), I paid Yen 12,000 to a stranger who had extra ticket. But when I stepped into Kobe World Kinen Hall, organiser was still selling some tickets (I did not check the details if this is for the 2nd day) for arena entrance. Anyhow the hall was not fully occupied. So other than going to reseller/convenience store, now fans can try your luck in getting tickets on the spot from the hall.

hmmm well does anyone know when the next concert for hamasaki ayumi is during the summer of 2009? I’d like to get tickets before its too late!

Comment from: peter  

During the summer? She doesn’t usually do concerts during the summer except a few appearances at A-Nation in August.
Her usual tour is in the spring (March until June). This year she had the asian leg of the tour in the fall during October/November.
Also, dates of the arena tour aren’t known until January anyway. I’m waiting for that as well so I can plan my vacantion ^^

Does anyone have an idea as to when Ayu’s new album will be out? I can’t imagine it will be before the end of the year considering that her new single is out early December…. I need my Ayu fix!!! Has there been any more thoughts on a petition for a International Team Ayu club?

10/29/08 @ 10:16
Comment from: peter  

Well, I’m hoping for a new album in January. She has done it before with Bold&Delicious and (miss)understood. B&D was released in the second half of December, and the album came on January 1st. So it’s still possible. (I’m very much hoping on it, cause I want a new album too, I want more new songs ;p)

About the international Team Ayu fanclub, I wish I could pursue something like that. I’m rather busy with many things, but actually that would still be something to strive for. I have some ideas that we could do, but I’m wondering if anybody has already tried something like this before. I’m going to have a look on AHS (the biggest english Ayu forum), if there have already been attempts. Because that’s already a very large group of people who want the same thing.

In fact, I have been to three of her concerts in the past. Two concerts in Yokohama in 2007 and one in Yoyogi this year (you can read more about them in the Japan 2007 and Japan 2008 categories in the menu).

Going to her concert is something that I hope to keep doing every year ^^

Comment from: peter  

It’s true, maybe we should start a petition for an international TeamAyu fanclub. The current fanclub is Japanese only, and now that Ayu is going more and more outside Japan to China and Taiwan, they can’t join either (and she has many fans in those countries as well). So maybe we should indeed start a petition. I wonder if anyone has ever attempted this.
It must be sais thought, that we notice Ayu is going more international with her official site being translated in english and chinese. And now we can also buy some tour goods on YesAsia as well. So there is some progression, but not enough ^^;

Hi Peter! i just read the news on our local newspaper this morning. i’ve been looking for her official statement/blog regarding this article. can you kindly give me the web address where she posted her message.

Hello,

Yeah, I found the news on AHS too. It’s a sad thing, but I admire Ayu’s strength to go on. She really would do everything for her fans. During the CDL 2007-2008, she was laughing during the SURREAL performance, because she saw something amusing in the crowd (she was standing on something that goes in the air, such as in A Museum and the Stadium Tour). The whole stage was just like the one of A Museum. Some vocals weren’t as perfect as always, but she sang rather good (considering the fact that she can only use one ear). But I noticed that she left her left earpiece in her ear all the time. You know, during the MC she doesn’t wear both pieces, but this time she only took the right one out of her ear. You have to watch closely…

PS: It’s really nice to know that I’m not the only one in Belgium that’s listening to Ayu’s music :)

It is very sad for a singer to go deaf in her left ear. She is brave to continue singing. I respecy her when I read this post.

Ayumi Hamasaki was a very strong woman. Her left ear doesn’t work anymore and it is inoperable. But she said she will continue singing. If I was her, I am frightened of singing. And she is lovely, with a good style. So, I think that she can become a fashion model!! Go for it, as a singer!!

Comment from: Sayani  

I like the songs by Ayumi Hamasaki. And I know she is hugely successful Japanese pop star. So, I’m very surprised to hear this news. It’s a pity that her left ear doesn’t work anymore. But, I am very impressed by her decision. She should continue singing! She is due to launch her second tour of Asia. I am glad to hear that!! I was also given courage when I read about her. I’ll do my best to live my life!

Comment from: Katchi  

I couldn’t believe it when I heard the news on TV, but she said “continue singing", so I was glad to hear that. Many of Ayumi’s fans want to listen to her music, I think. Maybe ordinary peope can’t overcome an illness like this, but I think she will overcome this because she has a strong will.,

Huzzah! I must say the CD only cover is
ugly (don’t pros take hundreds of shots
for something like this??) but as a
decade-long Ayu fan, I hope GUILTY is
a good one. Saw her on CNN once – she
actually speaks English quite well, don’t
know why her album tracks are so…
Engrish. Nice post!

12/18/07 @ 22:16

hihi..i have got the album already
wrote a review about Guilty..
overall my comment: Guilty is not the best album but it has nice tracks like Marionette..and Mirror!!!:)

This album isn’t getting too many great reviews, but it actually is pretty good. This album is darker than some of her others - I’m a little scared of Marionette (prelude), but still great overall.
