TVXQ to Become First Foreign Artist to Perform in a Japanese Stadium
As surprising as this may sound, TVXQ (DBSK) still has more records to set and conquer, and it continues to do just that.
The group will top off its five-dome tour TVXQ Live Tour 2013 Time with a set of concerts to take place from August 17-18 at the Nissan Stadium in Yokohama.
This will be the first exclusive concert to be held by a foreign singer in a stadium.
The Stadium has previously hosted performances by such top J-Pop teams as X-Japan, L′Arc~en~Ciel, SMAP and EXILE.
A total of 150,000 people are expected to gather for TVXQ′s performance across the two days of concerts in the venue.
A rep from SM Entertainment shared, "A stadium performance can be said to be a level higher than a dome performance, and the stadium is a dream venue that only the top singers in Japan can perform in. This proves again the high popularity and influence TVXQ wields in the country."
TVXQ is expected to gather a 850,000 audience in total with its five-dome tour and stadium concert. This will be the largest audience TVXQ has gathered for a single tour, and will be the largest audience a Korean singer has gathered in Japan to date.
The TVXQ Live Tour 2013 Time tour, the first five-dome tour to be undertaken by a Korean artist, was launched at the Saitama Super Arena from April 27-29.
TVXQ′s next Japan single album Ocean will be released on June 12.
