SHINee Holds Surprise Concerts at a Pool in Japan
SHINee held a series of successful surprise concerts to celebrate the upcoming release of its new Japanese single.
On August 14, such local media outlets as Sankei Sports reported that "Korea′s five-member idol group SHINee held surprise concerts in three locations - Tokyo′s Yomiuri Land, the Akasaka Event Hall and Shinjuku Plaza - on August 13."
The concerts were the group′s first surprise concerts in a year and eight months, as it previously planned to hold such a concert in Sibuya in December 2011. The concert had been cancelled at the time for safety reasons because too many fans had crowded the venue.
"We were looking forward to this concert because we had failed to hold one before. It was fun to meet so many people," the members said.
In Yomiuri Land, the group got to perform by a pool, and commented, "We want to jump in the pool too" and "It feels neat to be singing at a pool. We hope you feel refreshed with our new song too."
8,000 people were there to listen to SHINee sing Boys Meet U, the song that will be released on August 21.
Boys Meet U is SHINee′s eighth Japanese single album. The group has been touring arenas in the country since late June, and next will perform in Kobe from August 17-18.
