The thread was deleted for several reasons.
At that time we didn't know whether or not this FLOWER FLOWER thing was something regular or just a couple of lives.
We didn't know if she was playing new songs or just performing her regular YUI stuff with friends.
We didn't know if she was playing as part of a band, or leading a band, or playing solo.
And the most important, we didn't know if she had SONY's or Stardust's approval on this.
I think we took the best decision, because as you can see, people will quickly speculate over a couple of pictures and get a wrong idea.
Everytime YUI performs, she does it with a group of other artists. sometimes they are close friends, others not.
From the report we can confirm she only plays 5 or 6 songs at most. It's never been a "one man live"
Sometimes, they will play an encore of one or two songs together after everybody's performance finished. that's why you can see YUI playing guitar and not singing, or holding a tambourine.
Until now, YUI was doing this in secret, and she didn't want the main public to know.
I confirmed this from very good sources, so, to my regret, had to keep quiet all this time.
But now that sanspo leaked that report, shit hit the fan, and I doubt YUI is happy about it.
They will have to make an official statement of some sort soon or later.
Sony announced the big YUI hiatus and promoted the albums as if YUI was going to die XD
and now it results that YUI was not stopping at all, but starting a paralell career, still under Sony, with just a new name, because who knows... the music style will be a bit different and they agreed to give her more artistic freedom.. But that's pretty much IT.
Even I feel deceived by all this.
I'll start translating this nowhttps://docs.google.com/document/d/1WbnWs3QApCF71zGgD8tg9hK68mhr8_2zCNmMqvFjAMk/edit
