►►[RECAP] SHINee and “The First Concert in Tokyo” + Future plans
ALL that you need to know about SHINee’s First Concert in Tokyo, Japan!
SHINee (Onew,Jong-hyun,Key,Min-ho, and Tae-min) held their first solo concert in Tokyo, Japan on December 26th. This was the first of two shows the boy band held at Yoyogoi National Stadium. They performed in front of 400 members of the press and 24,000 fans.
“SHINee The First Concert in Tokyo SHINee World” was a huge success with the boys singing their hit songs, as well many others. From the photos, you can guess that “Juliette” and “Lucifer” were two musical numbers that kept fans on their feet.
However, main vocalist Jong-hyun expressed the following message to fans about his performance in the concert:
“I’m feel sad and sorry because the members and I have dreamed of holding a concert even before our debut and I wanted to show everything through this show”
Despite his injury, the band will hold two more concerts in Seoul’s Olympic Stadium on January 1st and 2nd.
SHINee will officially begin their extended career move in Japan with the release of their album in March through EMI Music Japan, as written from a letter after the concert ended:
“Thank you for coming today. We were so happy too. In fact…we’ll debut in Japan next year. Please continue to support us. Then, see you in Japan!”
According to a fan:
EMI Music Japan has no idol group. They support their artists fully with a long term plan. Their artists are mostly singer-song-writer type. EMI is a label with good image.
