A.B.C-Z will get their own stage show next February and possible CD debut
The group’s two concerts in Tokyo had attracted 26,000 fans, and it has been reported Johnny’s & Associates president Johnny Kitagawa was optimistic with the group’s future activities next year, including a possible CD debut.
“I know I have to let them soar high one day,” he said.
The title of their upcoming stage show will be “ABC座 日生公演 (ABC-Za Star Kouen)”. Although the “日生” in the show’s title is actually pronounced ”Nissay”, as in the name of the show’s theatre, “日生劇場 (Nissay Theatre)”, Mr Kitagawa had said that in the show’s title is a play on the kanji characters “日 (Ni)” and “生 (say)”, which combined, create the kanji character for “星 (Star)”, and hence the name, “Star Kouen or Star Performance”. The show will have a story, as well as several show time performances.
Producers of the show have said the group showed promising talent and knowledge, and hoped A.B.C-Z would one day perform under the brightest spotlight.
A.B.C-Z’s Fumito Kawai had said the group were ready for the challenge.
“We can use our bodies to create a show any type of venue. I don’t think there are many groups who can show as much variety [as us] in their performances. I hope to show something different than what I do at concerts. To have the Nissay Theatre to ourselves puts a lot of pressure on us, but it’ll be a good experience. I want to surprise people,” he said.
Kawai also commented on how he felt seeing fellow Johnny’s Jr. members in Kis-My-Ft2 and Sexy Zone making their professional debut this year.
“We do want to release CDs. I hope we can catch up to, and surpass them,” he said.Source: momoedgewood
