Secret lives reports

February 20th, 2009. A rumor started in a japanese blog. The person wrote he heard from "a schoolmate's boyfriend" that saw YUI performing secretly on a live house with a band called "e.u. Band".[1] The name of the live house was 両国FOURVALLEY. The bands scheduled that day were all published with the exception of one listed as "One more band".[2] Coincidentally, Hisashi Kondo posted a blury picture of a livehouse called 両国 the same day, but he didn't give further information about it.[3]
A second report was made of a second peformance in June 12nd at 熊谷のHEAVEN'S ROCK.[4][5]. The band members where presented as 今村舞さん(Imamura Mai-san), バッキーさん(Backy-san) and 黒ちゃんさん(Kurochan-san); and the setlist was:

1. Laugh away
2. 雨上がりの夜空に (cover)
3. Rolling star
4. I'll be
5. Love is all
6. again
7. Sea

Also, the day before, Hisashi Kondo posted a picture of Backy and Mai mai on a rehearsal, and seven songs can be spotted in the setlist on the floor[6]

The same list was presented later on ROCK IN JAPAN FES. '09, confirming the veracity of the rumors.
Nevertheless, official information about these performances was never made public.
