CN Blue Wraps Up Japan Arena Tour with 100,000 Fans, Jung Yong Hwa Tears Up
FNC Entertainment’s band CN Blue successfully completed its Japan arena tour by gathering 100,000 fans.
Starting with Tokyo Budokan on October 29 and ending in Nagoya Gaishi Hall on December 4, CN Blue sold out tickets to eight concerts held in five cities, successfully ending CN Blue Arena Tour 2014 – Wave. It has been reported that CN Blue’s final concert will broadcast through TBS in February, which is one of the main channels in Japan.
The arena tour involved the round, rotating stage which was prepared in order for the fans to see CN Blue from every seat.
Like Jung Yong Hwa’s opening statement, during which he said, “Since this is the last day of the arena tour, I will carry out this concert with the heart of risking my life,” the finale concert in Nagoya took place in a passionate atmosphere. The members performed a total of 23 self-composed songs, including Go Your Way, Lady, Can’t Stop and more, with their explosive vocals and dynamic band sound.
The concert included the newly arranged versions of Y.Why and My Miracle and during performance of Lonely Night, Jung Yong Hwa sang the song alone in a completely silent atmosphere.
The members interacted with the fans using Nagoya dialect in between the concert and during performance of I’m Sorry, the main vocalist Jung Yong Hwa and drummer Kang Min Hyuk switched their positions. Aftering singing four encore songs, the members performed Radio on the 360 degree rotating stage, thanking the fans who filled the stadium.
Jung Yong Hwa said, “I was happy to be able to interact with everyone who came by performing on the center stage. I would like to perform live like this next time too. I will return to you after making good music.” Jung Yong Hwa started tearing up as he shared his thoughts, bringing out sympathy from the fans.
CN Blue will be attending the family concert FNC Kingdom taking place on December 20 and 27 on Tokyo and Osaka.
