On June 23rd, MEG held a one-man live performance titled "10TH ANNIVERSARY PARTY 'Arrivee'" at Tokyo's SHIBUYA-AX.

The live performance was MEG's first in approximately a year and nine months, with her last performance in Japan being her performance at Sanrio's Puroland in August of 2010 before temporarily suspending her musical activities in Japan. The singer kicked off the concert by appearing on stage and looking over the crowded venue before performing her latest song "TRAP" as well as "Seventeen Rendezvous" with sexy dancers in body-con dresses accompanying her, giving the performance a very adult appeal.

After wrapping up her two new songs, MEG cheerfully greeted the crowd. "I'm back! I wanted to start off the first of my 10 year anniversary [performances] at SHIBUYA-AX, where I had my first solo live," she said to her fans before continuing the concert with the dance tunes "MAGIC", "I'M IN LOVE", and "JOKER" one after another.

"I've done so many different things in the last 10 years, but you've been there with me the whole time. You're all such amazing fans for gathering here like this!" she said during an MC segment, showing her gratitude to her fans for waiting so long for her return to Japan. Following her MC break, MEG sang a dramatic string arrangement of the song "Ikenai Koto Kai", which moved her fans to teasers.

In the second half of her live performance, MEG answered questions from her fans such as "Which okonomiyaki restaurant in Hiroshima would you recommend?" and "Please tell us your secret for maintaining your cuteness!" in a question-and-answer segment, making her fans laugh with her humorous responses. During the encore, the Telephones made an appearance as a surprise guest and performed a rock cover of TOMCAT's song "TOUGH BOY" with MEG. She then performed her songs "Amai Zeitaku" and "BEAUTIFUL".

MEG also surprised her fans with an announcement during her one-man live, stating that she will be releasing a new album on her birthday, October 3rd. The track list, jacket covers, and other details about the album will be announced at a later date.
