On October 19th, Hamasaki Ayumi wrapped up her nationwide tour at Saitama Super Arena.
In light of March’s Tohoku Earthquake, the title of the tour was changed to “POWER of MUSIC“. Hamasaki called out, “Let’s send the love we created to every corner of Japan!“, before singing a total of 21 songs in front of 25,000 people. She charmed the crowd with her collaboration performance with AAA’s Urata Naoya and Korean singer JUNO. During the encore, Hamasaki became overwhelmed with emotion and cried aloud.
Hamasaki also announced that she’s raised over 123 million yen (approximately $1.6 million USD) with her charity T-shirts. The proceeds were donated to the Japanese Red Cross.
