Details of 'BEST FICTION TOUR'

I'd briefly translated a description of 'BEST FICTION TOUR' from [corn_namie] whom went to see the concert:

18:15 A screen was lowered with 'BEST FICTION' wording on it.


The screen showed twin guards in 'Do Me More' PV with the little girl opening the door. The door opens up to a book called 'BEST FICTION'. Two dancers with circus-like movements came and open up the show. The stage looks retro and glamorous similar to the 'VIDAL SASSOON Showgirl' theme. The stage is separated into 2 levels. The lower level has the 'merry-go-round' stage similar to 'Do Me More' PV.

Do Me More

Namie appears. Curtain is drawn and namie sitting on a throne like a queen. She's wearing a low-cut black sleeves outfit with dark-red bra, black pants and boots. Her hair was similar to of PLAY TOUR's. She wearing a hat in the start too. She sitting down most of the time while singing 'Do Me More'

Violet Sauce
Similar choreography as 2006 & 2007.

ALARM
New Choreography with new rockish arrangement.

SO CRAZY
New Choreography, new arrangement. Don't sounded like 'SO CRAZY' at all! Very refreshing!

—part 2— Big screen shows the little girl choosing shoes she like in the forest. She chose a silver high-heel shoe among all others

NEW LOOK
A small area on the left side of the stage, came out a one storey high silver shoe with steps. Namie wearing a blue jacket with big black buttons, bringing out the 60's style. Cute!

Hello
Namie took her jacket off, inside she's wearing a black & white sleeveless outfit with short skirt. She uses a mobile phone in the last part of the choreography.

GIRL TALK
New choreography with special effects on the big screen.

shine more
New choreography. This time there are male dancers in the routine.

Full moon
Starting to dance on the black diamond shaped 'merry-go-round' until she dances onto the extension stage


Luvotomy
Stars appeared on the second level of the stage. The stars are large enough for namie to stand on it just like in 'Do Me More' PV. Beautiful screen effects.

Put 'Em Up
Similar to previous performances

It's all about you
Breath-taking special effects on the screen

-part 3- Together with the smoothing piano, stars appeared on the screen. All the stars gather and formed the words 'Wishing On The Same Star'

Wishing On The Same Star
Right side of the stage opens up with namie sitting on a 'moon-like' seat. She's wearing a black long dress.


-part 4- Big Screen shows the little girl continues into the forest and get attracted by a fruit on a tree. It turns out to be a golden ball just like in 'FUNKY TOWN' PV.

ROCK STEADY
Golden balls filled the staircase walking up to the second level. Namie sitting on the largest golden balls singing the song. The outfit is similar to of 'ROCK STEADY' PV but is in black in color with diamond.

FUNKY TOWN
Showered with silver ribbon.

Say the word
It's the original single version of 'Say the word!

No
Small fire-works in the end. Super high when doing the 'Say N A M I E' part!

-part 5- The concert filled with christmas atmosphere. The screen shows a turning crystal ball on a mini christmas tree.

White Light
The right side of the upper level, appears many presents and namie appears on top of a large present box. She's wearing a black & pink grown.

-part 6- Screen showing the little girl discovering noise below the ground and below the tree hides a passage to another world. She climb lower and lower until she find the source of the noise.

Hide & Seek
The dancers holding purple 'BEST FICTION' flags and announcing namie's arrival. She's wearing a purple short jacket with rock, wild style.

Damn it's boring!!

the only ballad she introduces the band ¬¬

but it's a "so-so show" no good ballad, baby don't cry she did that ¬¬
no tetsuya songs...

if this tour is like play tour, it will be a boring tour again :(

The person above me is an idiot. How do you know it's a so-so show when you haven't even seen it? Also, baby don't cry is not a ballad. It's her first show. She could change the songs she sings during other shows. This tour is suppose to represent her "best" work of the last 6 years, so it's obvious that she isn't going to focus a lot of time on old tetsuya songs. Go grow a brain because you need one.

Nels said...

LOL... i so agree. i remember watching it and was like, is it just me or is it a little dark? cause, if i'm not mistaken, so crazy and space of hip pop was taped in the same hall and the lighting wasn't that bad. (boa's face tour was taped there too and she had a similar stage and it was fine)

anyways, GO NAMIE!!! IMO she needs a new arrangement and choreography for body feels exit and i know its a little played out but boo for not having chase the chance on there. i love that song.

Gorge said...

it sounds totally amazing. but what's the difference between the Say The Word versions?

Anonymous said...

do i realy have no brain?
i think you should take care of what you say everybody said that this tour will be amazing,that play tour is amazing!!
it's all about points of view so the ones who have brain sorry, but if you can't support a critic about the show, i think YOU don't have a brain!!!

play album is boring too the only songs that are nice are the singles ones pink key and SILH... the rest of the songs are boring! so much noise in the songs!!. if you like that kind of song congrats!! buy ayumi's hamasaki cds too!! she does this kind of music!

and i won't agree with everything namie does, she's not perfect and she will never be perfect!

and how about the fans who likes more the old songs than the new ones, she'll lose them... with none of them on the shows
the best fiction albun is amazing but the tracklist of the show is annoying

why she put violet sauce?...
she would put AS GOOD AS she never sung this song and it's better than violet sauce...

anyway RESPECT the ideas which goes against yours, so that you can say that i have no brain, but if you don't... people will see who deosn't have a brain!!!

This sounds awesome ^-^.
Except, i'm a bit disappointed that she didn't perform more ballads. ><
And a dance for DMM would be cool ^-^

LOL at the idiot coming back and still making no sense at all. Learn to express your opinions without sounding like a total douche. Your grammar skills are about the same size as your brain. You clearly don't know what the hell you're talking about and I brought up good points to help enlighten you about your own stupidity. Please get a better education. You need it badly.

Anonymous said...

Well, the idiot who came back is obviously just one of those jealous Ayumi fans. Note the 'buy ayumi's hamasaki cds too!! she does this kind of music!'
O.O
But who cares about them! Avex are finally spending some money on Namie now they are realising what they've missed for the last 8 years! Don't get me wrong, Play tour was ace but this sounds INCREDIBLE! I WISH I COULD GO! She's finally back on top and she better stay there! GOOOO NAMIE!

how much time did you take to be stupid like this?

I'm not the person that wrote that but...what?

'yep, education is a thing that you REALLY know!!

Where did that come from? What are you trying to say? It doesn't even make sense. It's only a tour! We can't do anything about it so why bother arguing pointlessly over it?!

it was a irony she/ he said


"LOL at the idiot coming back and still making no sense at all."

i think a person who is smart wouldn't say these things to the other, and she/ he say that i'm idiot??
i think it's the oppositive

--------------------------------

i know it's just a tour she can sing komuro's song in others tour... but i said that it's boring without the odies songs and play tour was just dance, namie seemed to be SO tired to dance, comparing to style tour, that the play tour became boring, i think so much dance songs and no ballad to rest the body during the show will make namie gets more tired to dance...
but people prefer to say that the other is stupid and don't try to talk to know why...

i don't have to agree with anybody here, if 10 people that play tour is great congrats! i my lost money buying that

and english is not my mother language that's why i can't express very well... unfortunatly english is the "world language", i hope someday it changes! (and it will, like in the past when the "world language" was greek)

Rocky.R said...

lol, this small brain babe come back again
Listen dear, i'm vietnamese n my mother launguage is VN too! So dont push it out here
and 2nd, She sing, she dance n dance n dance n get tired, that's NAMIE's style n I'm glad she still keep it until now.
This tour is not boring without the old songs or less ballad songs, it's just b/c of your boring standard mind!
As Good As is a great song, n Violet Sauce too, just dont compare them!

this is what u said "play album is boring too the only songs that are nice are the singles ones pink key and SILH... the rest of the songs are boring! so much noise in the songs!!. if you like that kind of song congrats!! buy ayumi's hamasaki cds too!! she does this kind of music!"
LOLz, I feel sorry for your music taste again!
btw, give us your name so that we can call u easier, i dunt want to call u small brain [Anonymous]

Holy crap. This sounds awesome D:

The closest I had was a stopover in Japan on the 31st LOL. Lame. But I bought her 60s70s80s single in Akiba in the spring time this year.

Dang this makes me jealous. DD:

i wish she has her hair split in the front like her "what a feeling" pv but then again she does sweat a lot!! lol

Anonymous said...

wait, I'm confused, this is the best tracklist I've seen of her although I've only known of her for 4 years, but why isn't "all for you" on there if it's part of the BEST FICTION cd which the concert is based off? or did i miss it?
