Suzuki Ami Around the World: Live House Tour 2005[1] was the live house tour held by Japanese pop singer Ami Suzuki that supported her debut studio album in Avex, Around The World.

Background[edit]

It was Ami's first tour after joining the Avex trax label at the beginning of 2005. The term Live house of the tour eslogan is comparable to the English concept of music venue, in the sense of minor-scale concert tour, contrasting the ones held in big arenas. It was first announced in the period of release of Suzuki's third single in Avex "Negaigoto", with only three locations. At first, when the first album under her new label it was going to be Hopeful, the tour was meant to be called Suzuki Ami Hopeful 2005 Tour: Live House de Body Shake It,[2][3] but after the album title was changed, so it was the name of the tour. Despite of being a low-scale concert tour, Suzuki Ami Around the World: Live House Tour 2005 featured an interlude video shown in the beginning of the concert, and various changes of clothing. It even included virtual wings that appeared from Suzuki's back with feathers falling from all around the stage, while singing "Negaigoto", her song chosen to formally close the concert.

The concert main target was to promote her Avex material, and all the songs from the album were included in the set list, including also the b-sides that were not included in the album. However, Suzuki also performed some of her previous Avex songs, such as her 2004 indie single "Tsuyoi Kizuna", and two of her biggest hits from her Sony era in the encore.[4]
