Winner to Embark on Japan Hall Tour in September
Within just two years of its debut, Winner will take off on a hall tour in Japan.
Kicking off at the Shiga Biwako Hall on September 6, Winner will continue on to Tokyo, Osaka, Fukuoka, Hokkaido and more, making stops in 10 cities to hold a total of 17 concerts and meet with 36,000 fans.
Last year, the group launched a tour with its debut in Japan, traveling to 5 cities for 11 concerts to meet with 25,000 fans. With this tour, Winner will be going to cities they were unable to hit up before.
Winner released its debut Japanese album 2014 S/S -Japan Collection- last year, ranking second on the Oricon Weekly Chart despite being a rookie group, receiving a hot response from locals.
Kang Seung Yoon stated, "Continuing on from Winner′s first Japan tour last year, we′re happy to be holding concerts on our first hall tour this year. We want to perform live with a warm atmosphere and worldview in order to become one with the fans through music again. As the venue will enable us to be closer to the audience, we want to perform feeling a sense of unity."
Winner′s leader Kang Seung Yoon was cast in his first lead role alongside 2NE1′s Sandara Park in web drama We Broke Up, while Nam Tae Hyun challenged himself in a lead role in MBC Every1′s webdrama Girl of Midnight. Song Min Ho will appear in Mnet′s Show Me the Money 4 in June, as the members continue to show off their individual talents.
