Migi: tsubagakure It must be expensive for people living in Europe to come visit Asia, just like how it is for us to go there.

tsubagakure: it sure is; the only individuals i knew that went o Japan, they went on business. a colleague of mine went there for nearly 3 months, but the little time she had to explore and visit was always hurried and shallow - though she loved it!

Migi: tsubagakure I guess it's barely enough given how there are so many things to explore in Japan. You definitely need to visit more than once haha
angelbeat asks for more concert, so here she comes.
A rather late news, if I may say. Following her success at Budokan concert, Aimer holds a national tour through the new year to various places in Japan. The chosen ones are:
Nagoya Congress Center Century Hall (December 24, 2017)
Leysin Hall Nagano (January 14, 2018)
Hiroshima Uenogakuen Hall (January 20, 2018)
Rohm Theater Kyoto Main Hall (January 21, 2018)
Festival Hall Osaka (January 23, 2018)
Fukuoka Sun Palace Hotel & Hall (January 27, 2018)
NHK Hall (February 20-21, 2018)
At the moment I made this post, based on the info from the official website, all tickets are sold out except for the NHK Hall on February 20! I'm so happy for her. We see how so many people are eager to see her and experience her music directly.
In the middle of her "hiver" tour, she will appear in Sawano Hiroyuki's [nZk] live concert "2V-ALK". The concert takes place in Venue Zepp DiverCity Tokyo on February 5-6, 2018.
Aimer already has her first few months of 2018 so busy, so let's support her! Best wishes for you, Aimer.
This is what wildthing was talking about, right? The concert at NHK Hall? So the February 20 was an extra performance because all the tickets were sold out? Wow, talking about slaying. She also has a mini world tour coming up with amazarashi. Very cool.
Aimer had a very successful year in 2017. Let's hope the trend continues in 2018, for a long time.
Yeah that's the extra day they added as soon after it was all sold out
For purchasing tickets in Japan, this is usually what happens:
Official Fans members gets first dibs on the lottery for purchasing tickets. Then it goes to various pre-order lottery, i.e. Official Homepage, Official LINE account, Mailing list etc. If a CD/DVD release of some sort comes out, it will usually include a code for pre-order ticketing as well. Then it goes to general pre-order lottery, eventually to general release of tickets online or at convenient stores machines.
General release means, ticketing websites grinds to a halt and gets sold out within the first couple of seconds/minutes assuming there are tickets left in the first place
To prevent touting/reselling, usually the Fan Club tickets with better seating etc may require ID checks etc. Fan club tickets are also mailed directly to a Japanese address.
There are now restrictions too on creating an ticketing online account, you are now required an confirmation of a Japanese mobile number via SMS/text or a Missed call from your phone.
wildthing Thanks for sharing the information about purchasing tickets! I didn't imagine that there would be so many steps. Then again, I rarely attend concerts of such big artists, although I know about the ticket reselling business. They make sure each ticket goes to a legitimate fan in the right way.
I'm glad you could secure a ticket to one of her performances, though!
If I understand this article correctly, fans will be able to pre-order the 14th single Ref:rain in the concert venue. Those who do so will receive Aimer's autograph on the CD when it's officially released.
Westkana Music boxes are very expensive. That kind of design with transparent box and golden machine is also the simplest one if I remember correctly. I visited a music box museum/shop in Sapporo a while back and the more sophisticated boxes are over 10,000 yen LOL. Not to mention that only a segment of the song can be included in the music box. It's cute and make a good gift, but not worth the money imo.
