[TRANS] THSK First Korean Group To Perform At Tokyo Dome

The national tour, of which 250,000 people attended, will be ending with at the Tokyo Dome.

Asia's most popular group, Tohoshinki, is the first Korean group to stand on the stage at the Tokyo Dome, proving that they have made their way to the top in Japan, the world's second largest music industry.

Tohoshinki will have their last concert performances at the Tokyo Dome on 4th and 5th July, which will definitely be the best ending for their Japan national tour, [Tohoshinki 4th Live Tour 2009 ~The Secret Code~], of which 250,000 fans attended.

This is especially since even within Japan, only top artistes like SMAP, GALY, Ayumi Hamasaki can hold concerts on the dream stage - the Tokyo Dome. The Dome, which is at around 4 times larger than any concert arena in Japan, can house roughly 50,000 people. A concert with of such huge proportions will be different from any other, and will present an amazing stage.

The Tokyo Dome is the final stop for their national tour, which commenced on 4th May and they covered 9 cities which includes Kobe, Saitama, Fukuoka and more. Furthermore, Tohoshinki did not depend on the Hallyu wave to get this opportunity to perform at the Tokyo Dome. The fact that they started from the bottom as J-pop artistes, and managed to achieve these results after working so hard, it holds a lot of meaning for them.

To be able to have a national tour around Japan and still have 2 performances at the Tokyo Dome, and to be able to draw crowds that amount to 250,000 people, is not an easy feat, and only a few top artistes can claim to have achieved this.

In the meantime, Tohoshinki will have their [Tohoshinki Premium Showcase 2009 in Omotesando] at Omotesando Hills Space, Harajuku. The members were very involved in the planning of this event, and are anticipating a good response from fans.
