So definitely not saying that Airi isn't talented or doesn't deserve this is any way...

But does Airi-alone (really) command that many idol-fans/enough fans that are willing to shell out and attend a Budokan concert? I know she tends to rank in the respected-idols list but...

Nevertheless I'm excited for her and this would be a pretty big (biggest push for a graduated H!P member?) push on UF*s end to expect Airi to fill out Budokan. It'll be great (freeish) publicity for her solo activities.

I'm expecting them to announce the album for sometime between the initial smaller concerts and Budokan now.

S/mileage campaigned hard to get fans to attend their first Budokan concert and it sold out. They also got other H!P acts to perform too. Tsunku gave them a goal to sell 8,000 tickets.

Airi and Upfront can campaign like this.

I fully expect there to be some special guests (musical or otherwise) at her Budoukan show to help out. But 8000 seats? For a one-off, first live in Tokyo of an established veteran idol? This doesn't seem anywhere near impossible.

If my memory is accurate, the aforementioned S/mileage's Budokan concert had most of the upper level seats not used, so "sold out" does not mean the same universally - its seatings can be configured accordingly to the demand to a degree after all.
Still 8k (out of max 14K+ seating capacity) is like more than double of a typical plaza/concert hall capacity, nothing to sneeze at.

She was so popular when she was in H!P so it's possible.

I'd love to go to the thing, I love Airi so much.

Now that she's not an idol it's time for her to release a whole Suusan line. You know, as her side hustle.

The general consensus nowadays is that if Up Up Girls can have a live at Budokan anyone can.

Many people who aren't mainly Airi fans, but also generally Cute fans will probably attend as well.
Airi is ridiculously popular though, not just among the typical wota but among a lot of younger girls as well.There will be a lot of people at that show and I don't think she will have any problems filling 10,000 seats.

This maybe means another H!P act will be in Budoukan the day before/after as well. Nice (8

C-ute's LINE group chat reactions to the Budoukan announcement (posted to Airi's IG account):

Spoiler: show
Image Image Image Image

C-ute LINE talks from Airi Instagram Stories

You can do concert in Budokan alone, You are amazing!

It's amazing. I'm also surprised.
Actually I have a lot of worries. but I will do my best!!

Nacky : Guys! Shine brightly as well as Airi!
Chisato: Airi, Chisato is cheering for you!
Maimi: Yes! We are cheering for you!
Nacky: Airi, you can do it!
But In the concert day, we will be excited more than Airi XD
I will cheer for you wiping tears with handkerchiefs

Maimi: well, if I were you, I would get nervous terribly !
You are amazing!
Just imagining your stage making me almost cry.

Can I just say that this is insane. Upfront must have so much faith in her. It’s amazing. I’m so happy for her. I hope her solo career becomes a huge success.

I think you guys are right. If you combine C-Ute and Buono fans she can definitely fill up the seats. Unlike Berryz, C-ute disbanded when they were still peaking. (Stagnating a bit but still peaking) There are a lot of potential fans that will support Airi.

I just ...we haven’t had a successful soloist in a long time. Not for upfront nor H!P. Not in like - the past decade... (even solo projects from OG have only had moderate success - Lovendor, PinkCres- whatever Sayu is doing) I am sure she is up for the challenge and she sure has the talent, but I am very curious at how much she will really sell as a solo artist. If she is even anywhere near the groups sales that would be an incredible feat.
Hooooollllddddddd me... what ever lies beyond this mooooorrrrrrrrnnnnnniiiiinnngggg...

Looks like it's a place in Shibuya called Pizza Slice, which is meant to mimic a NY pizzaria.

Found by Google image searching "Slice of your life" (text from the wall in one of the pics on her IG), which it turns out is their motto.

I do think she's filmed something for DISTANCE there, though.
