On later dates of the hall tour, "Yasei no ENERGY" was moved from the encore to the main setlist, with the previous closer "Pleasure 2003 ~Jinsei no Kairaku~" taking its place and "BAD COMMUNICATION" being introduced as the new closing number. Only 19 songs were played on most nights, but this was expanded to 20 by the end of the tour.

Nagisaen

The culmination of the tour was a two-night stand at Nagisaen, where B'z had performed their first open-air concert ten years earlier for B'z LIVE-GYM Pleasure'93 "JAP THE RIPPER", which also took place over two nights. The return came on the eve and day of the band's fifteenth anniversary and showcased many of their biggest hits and most beloved gems. However, due to the typhoon that had landed in Nagisaen at the time, the show on September 21 had to be cut short, with "Pleasure 2003 ~Jinsei no Kairaku~", "Wonderful Opportunity", "GIMME YOUR LOVE ~Fukutsu no LOVE DRIVER~", "BAD COMMUNICATION", and "Ai no Mama ni Wagamama ni Boku wa Kimi Dake wo Kizutsukenai" not being performed.
