Hey! Say! JUMP to hold their 1st Asia tour



On January 2nd, it was announced that idol group, Hey! Say! JUMP will be holding their first Asia tour in March to June.  The members were informed about the tour on the same day by Johnny Kitagawa, the president of Johnny & Associates, right before they began their live concert at the Yokohama Arena.

Member, Yabu Kota commented, “I’m happy that we will finally be able to see fans overseas“, while Chinen Yuri said, “We will show off our performances!”  Yamada Ryosuke also added, “To hold a tour overseas was our major goal, so I’m happy!  This will be a new start as JUMP.

According to Johnny & Associates, Inc., there will be 3 stages in Hong Kong on March 24th and 25th, 4 stages in Taipei, Taiwan on April 28th and 29th, 2 stages in Bangkok, Thailand on May 26th and 27th, and 4 stages in Seoul, Korea on June 23rd and 24th.  This will be their first oversea concerts ever since they made their CD debut back in November 2007.  The Asia tour will also include the live concerts in Japan which will be held at Yokohama Arena for a week continuously (total 14 stages) on May 1st ~ 7th.

During the concert, Hey! Say! JUMP performed total 26 songs including their new song “SUPER DELICATE” which is scheduled to be released in February.

right. and just like i said, KAT-TUN and Kanjani8 went through the same thing. they had many fans from throughout their time as juniors to fill up the domes as well. but they also had to wait awhile before finally given the chance to perform in the dome and tour around the country.

It took a long time for Arashi to get that honor even though they had the amount of fans it would take to fill up the dome. I mean they had an Asia tour before holding a concert in the dome! Once they did though, the other groups got the same honor in rapid succession with NEWS doing an Asian tour and Domes, Kanjani8 traveling to every prefecture and KAT-TUN in the Dome as well.

J&A is smart, they wouldn't have done something like that without knowing it would work.

And I don't know much about Sexy Zone to really comment on them, I saw them during the countdown and they all look really young, so I don't know how long they've been in the agency and yes that greatly reflects how they've debuted. Although, the rate at which these groups are debuting is too fast and unnecessary. I think they want the money too much now.

i think you have your info wrong. KAT-TUN didn't have to wait, they performed in Tokyo Dome prior to debut. and then went back to Tokyo Dome right after debuting. and year after year, they were performing in Tokyo Dome.

Kisumai debuting in Tokyo Dome is something they deserve. It's not a matter of debuting on top. They started and worked hard from the bottom. They were already doing Arena Tours as juniors. It's about time they step in Tokyo Dome when they debut, if only for the reason they are done with and have dealt with Arena Tours.
