2PM started off on September 2, 2011 with 7,000 fans in Seoul. It continued on to meet 100,000 in Japan, and managed to gather a total of 52,000 fans with its concerts in Taiwan, Jakarta, Singapore, Bangkok, Peking and Hong Kong.

The grand finale, the Hong Kong concert, was held on March 10 at the Hong Kong Asian Expo Arena. Although it was 2PM’s first concert in Hong Kong, all 9,000 tickets had been sold out since two months before the concert.

After holding a press conference with more than 50 media outlets on the day before the concert on March 9, 2PM held a high-five event at the APM shopping mall. 500 fans crowded to the scene, which was full to the brim with those craning to catch a glimpse of the group.

The concert held the day after on March 10 managed to mesmerize the 9,000 fans gathered in the venue with 2PM’s performances and music. Member Junsu received great applause for his rendition of I Hurt My Heart, a single originally by the well-known Hong Kong star Jacky Cheung.

“We were so happy to be able to meet in person all those fans that love our music and to have a great time with them. We promise we’ll come back with better performances. We again want to thank all our fans who always cheer us on,” 2PM said in thanks after wrapping up its Asia tour.

2PM will be holding a fanmeeting on April 1.
