In tandem with Yamashita Tomohisa’s new album “Ero”, Yamashita performed at the Yokohama Arena from August 3rd to the 5th as a part of his Japan tour “TOMOHISA YAMASHITA LIVE TOUR 2012 ~ERO-P~”.
The performances opened with Yamashita dressed in a white-feathered outfit descending from the ceiling on a lip-shaped object that has been used as the tour logo. When Yamashita performed his song “ERO -2012 version-” and displayed his sensual view of the world, he quickly put the 15,000 fans in attendance into a state of intoxication. He followed the performance with the song “Ai, Texas,” in which he changed the serif in the interlude into a Yokohama version and announced with a sunny voice: “The truth is I see everyone here with an erotic eye.”
Midway through the concert, he selected a random fan from the audience, brought them to the stage, sat down, and sang with the fan on a sofa while he changed his clothes on stage. He was accompanied by a samba dance group and gave many “ERO-P”-style performances. For the tour this time around, Miles Walker, who has worked with artists like Beyonce, Katy Perry, Rihanna, and Usher, served as the sound engineer, while Korea’s Kim Seo Ryeong worked with the stage production. With the support of top-notch international staff members, Yamashita’s performances were completed at a consistent high level.
The 6 performances left on the tour will take place in Fukuoka, Hokkaido, Nagoya, and Tokyo. Finally, a DVD and Blu-ray of the tour will be released on November 28th.
