[TRANS] 090706 Tohoshinki Tour's Final Stage At Tokyo Dome Draws 100,000

Reported at 20:49 (Japan Time)

On the 5th, Korean dance and vocal group Tohoshinki held their final performance of their national tour at the Tokyo Dome (Tokyo Bunkyo), and sang a total of 32 songs including their new single「Stand by U」which went on sale on 1st July.

Tohoshinki debuted in Japan in April 2005 with their single「Stay With Me Tonight」. Although they were already stars in South Korea, they started out as a new group in Japan, energetically doing activities and events. Their efforts earned them 5 consecutive number #1 rankings on the Oricon Weekly Singles Chart, from the single 「Purple Line」that they released in January 2008. This position is a record that they still hold today, and at the end of 2008, they made their debut appearance at the Kōhaku Uta Gassen.

The national tour that began in May covered a total of 9 cities with a total of 21 Lives. It was attended by 300,000 people altogether with the last 2 days at the Tokyo Dome which drew 100,000. They are the third among Korean artistes who have performed at the Tokyo Dome, including artistes like Rain (Pi) and Ryu Siwon.

They also performed their solos at the Live. Junsu performed a brilliant dance「Xiahtic」with a female dancer, and Yunho descended onto the stage from the ceiling for his performance of「Checkmate」. Jejung and Yuchun (23), performed a duet 「COLORS(カラーズ)〜Melody and Harmony」which is the theme song for the 「Hello Kitty 35th Anniversary COLORS」.

The DVD off the Live performance will be out on sale on 30th September.
