[Article trans - modelpress] Tohoshinki to reach a new stage of dreams in their 9th year
Kicked off the tour which will gather 850000 people, their personal record
With the addition of the Stadium concerts, the number of the concerts increased to 18 shows at 7 venues, expanding the total number of audience to 850000 people, their new record. They are going to realize their two dreams in their 9th year in Japanese market, Dome Tour and Stadium concerts. The 2 members delivered a powerful statement of intent, exciting the 32000 audience.
Yunho: We want to go beyond the dream and chase a new dream.
Changmin: With your cheer, we will blow away the heat of summer!
◆First performance of their new song "OCEAN", the hottest number
"Sustained everyday effort and every one step create a history. Cherish 'NOW' and live your own life slowly but steadily." This is the message put in the album "TIME" (released on March 6). With this album, Tohoshinki kicked off their tour. By curious coincidence, the first day of the tour, April 26, fell on the anniversary of their Japanese debut. The approx. 3-hour long time travel was full of splendid stage spectacles, utilizing the every space, even the far corners, of the large venue. The concert is packed with Tohoshinki's Past, Presence and Future.
They continued to perform powerful dance numbers, which are the big appeal of Tohoshinki. Among these, the song that received the largest cheer on that day was "Catch Me – If you wanna –" released last January. The hulk dance which makes a big arm with the arms of the two members and the dancers and their stable singing ability symbolize the Presence of Tohoshinki. The new song sung in response to a long encore "OCEAN" (to be released on June 12) will make a piece of their "Future".
They introduced "OCEAN", the "hottest" song in the Tohoshinki's history, saying "This is an upbeat, up-tempo song. The taste of the song is different from that of our past summer songs. This is a good song to listen to when you have fun with many people in a beach. (Changmin)" and "Enjoy the joyful dance too, and jump all together (Yunho)". When they told the audience "Swing your towels round more intensely", swinging their towels around, the 320000 audience were excited to the maximum. The venue was instantly covered with an atmosphere of mid-summer beach, making us feel this may be a new summer concert anthem.
This day was the final day of their Saitama Super Arena concerts. They will kick off their Five Dome Tour in May and deliver concerts at majors domes before they arrive at the Nissan Stadium in August. Yunho said "After coming to Japan, Tohoshinki has climbed up stairs slowly. When looking back, there are various memories. Our first goal was a concert tour. The second was No.1 on the oricon chart, and then an arena tour. Then we arrived at a dome… Finally we were given the opportunity to hold a dome tour", remembering fondly their path to the dome tour. Also he expressed his gratitude to their fans "Each time, you gave us big cheers, which made us drive forward and made it possible to achieve these goals. As I said many times, we are truly thankful to you". Changmin added with a bright smile, "Today we spent time together and this experience becomes a new wonderful and cool page of Tohoshinki history."
So far some Japanese top artist have held solo concerts at Nissan Stadium, including Eikichi Yazawa (1999, 2012), SMAP (2003, 2005, 2006) and Southern All Stars (2003, 2008). B'z, AKB48 and Momoiro Clover Z plan to have concerts this year. It is expected that Tohoshinki will deliver historic performance, which is suitable to the first-ever foreign artist to accomplish the spectacular achievement.
TVXQ to Be First Korean Singer to Launch Five-Dome Tour in Japan
TVXQ (DBSK) will be writing a new page of K-Pop history in Japan, as it will launch a five-dome tour in Japan next year.
From April 27, 2013, TVXQ will start touring the five domes of Japan, taking its first step at the Saitama Super Arena and continuing on to the Tokyo Dome, the Osaka Kyosera Dome, the Fukuoka Yahoo! Japan Dome, the Sapporo Dome and the Nagoya Dome.
This is the first five-dome tour to be undertaken by a Korean team. It is also the fourth such record to be set by a foreign singer in Japan, as TVXQ is only preceded by the global pop figures Bon Jovi, The Eagles and Billy Joel.
Expectations are high for the upcoming tour, as TVXQ previously gathered more than 550,000 people for its TVXQ Live Tour 2012~TONE~ concerts this year and has just started off on its TVXQ! Live World Tour Catch Me.
On January 16 the group even plans to release a new single album containing a Japanese version ofCatch Me and a new track titled I Know.
The members of the group told enews on November 21, "We′re very happy that the five-dome tour we′ve dreamed of going on since our debut is finally going to happen. We′ll work hard to prepare great music and performances, so please look forward to it, and we hope to see your support and interest."
TVXQ plans to release its special edition album Humanoids on November 26, and will start promoting the title song on music shows soon after.

TVXQ will be the first Korean singers to perform at Nissan Stadium
On April 30, TVXQ’s agency, SM entertainment reported that the duo will hold a concert for two days (August 17 and 18) at Nissan Stadium in Yokohama, Japan.

K-pop duo TVXQ completed the finale performance of its Japan tour over the weekend at the Nissan Stadium in Yokohama, gathering 72,000 people daily in the highest grossing performance ever since making its debut in 2003.
The duo performed the final session of its "TVXQ Live Tour 2013-Time-Final In Nissan Stadium" at Yokohama, Japan in Aug. 17-18.
The stadium is 1.5 times bigger than Tokyo Dome, which is also a highly-desired venue for K-pop singers. The group is the first Korean artist to perform in a stadium venue yet.
Since April, TVXQ launched a five-dome tour in Japan beginning at the Saitama Super Arena, Osaka Kyocera Dome, and Tokyo Dome to Nissan Stadium. During the tour the duo attracted 850,000 fans. The group joins the list of international artists that held a five-dome tour, after Bon Jovi, the Eagles and Billy Joel.
After a grand opening, they started with the song "Fated" from their official album "Time" as their fans ardently greeted them, waving glow sticks.
The concert was mostly composed of the songs on the album "Time" which was launched in March. Their outstanding production added excitement to the performance. Using hydraulic equipment such as cherry pickers, they tried to approach their fans as much as they could by making the most of the space in the stadium.
When the ballad song "I Know" started, their fans turned on their LED clock to recall the "Time" concept of the new album. The stadium started to fill with twinkling clocks and with voices of Japanese fans shouting "I love you" in Korean.
Fans expected the performance to end with the song "Catch me", but the group added four more encore performances. The three-hour concert ended with the finale "Somebody to Love."
After this tour, the group will take part in Japan's biggest summer music festival "a-nation."
The members are also planning to perform in Osaka Nagai Stadium in Aug. 25 and Tokyo Ajinomoto Stadium in Aug. 31.
"We are also secretly organizing a surprising event for our 10th anniversary, so please look forward to it," said the duo excitingly.
