concert will also be viewable for three days longer than with regular tickets. The archive will be viewable until September 1st for regular ticket holders and until September 4th for VIP ticket holders.
The fireworks display is MAO
's attempt to honour a promise he made to his fans. As a special fan tour he had planned ended up being cancelled due to the COVID-19 crisis, he wanted to deliver the experience of watching fireworks together
with him in a yukata, even if it is not possible to hold such an event in person under the current circumstances.
