Ayaka makes her return after four years
This past weekend, singer Ayaka made her comeback by performing a 2-day concert at the famous Nippon Budokan. This marked the start of her “LIVE TOUR 2012 ‘The beginning’ ~Hajimari no Toki~” after being absent for four years.
Ayaka just added Osaka-Jo Hall and Yokohama Arena to the tour making a stop in 14 cities across Japan. The tour is expected to bring in 9,000 fans. The singer performed to a sold out venue where her stage was uniquely shaped in a 360° format.
During the concert Ayaka shed tears of joy while yelling, “Tadaima. I’m speechless, tears are coming down.”
She then greeted, “How is everyone? How many of of you dreamed about this day…. Not knowing if I can still sing, I’m very grateful that everyone waited … ‘Thank you’ isn’t enough to describe my feelings.”
The singer sang 19 songs during her 2-day live.
