Eir Aoi performed her final concerts at the Nippon Budokan on November 4 and 5 before going on a indefinite hiatus.
15,000 fans came to see Aoi perform. Unlike her previous concerts, there was a lot of tension in the air. Aoi first announced her decision to go on a hiatus last August, and the fans were eagerly awaiting for the last chance to see her on stage. She started the concert with the Sirius and the arena heated up. After that, without any talk in between, she performed hits such as AURORA and Cobalt Blue. She also performed some newer songs such as Akatsuki and Rainy Day.
Then she finally addressed the audience, saying only ‘There isn’t much left, but please enjoy it until the end’. She then performed her newest single Tsubasa and finished with INNOCENCE.
For the encore, she returned to the stage wearing a red tartan outfit. She took the chance to talk more to her fans. She apologised for being out of action since August, and talked about her memories of the past five years. She then introduced the band members one by one, and sang the song frozen eyez, which she recorded for the magazine Lis Ani! before her major debut. She couldn’t hold back her tears as she performed Tsunagaru Omoi, the first single she wrote and composed herself.
Finally, she performed the twenty fourth song of the night, Niji no Oto, and thanked her fans: ‘Thank you for finding me. Thank you for loving my songs. Thank you for always supporting me’.
