I have reached Yuki nirvana
Hope everyone has fun. Kind of weird timing. Going around the globe in the middle of live#14... lolz.

Kajiura solo? Shieetttt I need tickets right meow. i wonder who is she going to bring? Joelle, Yuriko, Kaori, and FBM?
Since it's not a full solo concert I doubt she's going to bring all her singers? FBM probably though. She has Aimer for one song... lol.

Hue thought the same thing.

Good point. Well, if it's like that, I get the feeling that she'll bring Joelle. She can sing in (proper) English, Japanese and has a good voice for Kajiurago. Plus, she would be able to interact with the audience.

^ Its not a solo. Its 1 concert with Aimer + Yuki + Sayuri + May'n so they ll probably split a 25-track setlist, she ll probably get 5-6 songs of her own and 2 that she composed for Sayuri and Aimer, if they perform them but i dont see why not.

She isn’t the only one. I was just reading about the drama blowing up over Aquors flying back and forth to perform a full live at AX couple of days before their concert in Fukuoka. At least Kajiura’s appearance is right between her July 1st and 12th shows.

I already put down my money for this con, see you folks in July.

Since Kajiura is bringing the whole FBM, should we expect them to accompany the other singers. I mean I'm pretty sure that I've seen them playing Lisa's songs on several festivals. I think that would be more convenient than bringing several FBMs...

Yeah... I would go if it was final. (And if I had money and if it wasn't July in LA (it gets very hot and with my current condition I can't be in the heat, I know it would be indoors, but still)) Ugh. I want to see Aimer's song performed live too since I liked the slower version of it, which I hope is how she will sing it this time, if she does. But I hope this gets recorded as well, as it is an interesting lineup. I wish we could all just teleport so we wouldn't have to spend so much money and we can hang out together as much as we want. lol I know, too easy.

Roses at her doorstep
Woah, Kaori, Yuriko and Yuki's FBM will perform at AX 2018 Super Live!!!

I was not really sure if I would go to Super Live concert since I am not familiar with May'n and Sayuri songs.
But, when I saw this topic and found out that Kaori, Yuriko and Yuki's FBM will be there, I decided instantly to come to Super Live :XD:

So, thanks a lot for the info~

@crystalpink I saw May'n live last month. Even though it wasn't released in the USA, I would anticipate that May'n would sing some songs from Macross Frontier (e.g. Don't Be Late, Diamond Crevasse, Lion, Obelisk, Northern Cross, What about my star?...).
