SHINee successfully completed its second Japanese area tour with the last one taking place in Tokyo.
SHINee’s second Japanese arena tour, titled JAPAN ARENA TOUR SHINee WORLD 2013~Boys Meet U~ started on June 28 in Saitama Super Arena and continued through nine cities around Japan for a total of 15 concerts.
The group reportedly gathered over 220,000 fans during the entire tour, proving its popularity in the country.
The finale performance in Tokyo, which took place between December 24 and 25, gathered over 24,000 audiences in the Yoyogi National Gymnasium, featuring SHINee’s live dance performances on specially decorated stages.
For the concert lasting for about two and a half hours, SHINee performed a total of thirty songs, including tracks from its first and second Japanese albums as well as Japanese singles.
The members performed the Japanese version of Everybody for the first time, and they also got loud cheers by dressing up as santas when they performed Dazzling Girl.
“We’re happy to know that there are so many of you who love our music,” said SHINee. “We were nervous since this is our last concert for the tour, but thank you for cheering enthusiastically throughout the show. We are happy to see your beautiful smiles.”
Meanwhile, SHINee will conclude the rest of the year by attending various music award ceremonies.
