KAT-TUN Extends, 10 Days at the Tokyo Dome

It was announced yesterday Thursday 26 by the JE Jimusho that DOMUCON Concerts had been expanded to 8 days, plus another two other dates added in June and another couple in Osaka in May.
——————

KAT-TUN has just added six more dates to their upcoming concerts this spring. In January, they announced that they would be performing for a record 7 consecutive days at the Tokyo Dome, but with the extra concerts, they have now upped that number to 8.

Approximately 385,000 tickets were available for the original 7 concerts on May 15-21, but there were reportedly about 850,000 requests for tickets during the pre-order period alone. In response, Johnny’s Jimusho has scheduled three additional shows at Tokyo Dome and three at Osaka Dome.

KAT-TUN will now be performing at Tokyo Dome for eight days in a row on May 15-22. They will then travel to Osaka for three concerts on May 29-31, before returning to Tokyo Dome on June 14-15. Together, the 13 concerts will gather an audience of roughly 685,000 fans.

Samurai KAT-TUN appear! 8 days consecutive performance

It was announced this 26th from the Johnny’s Jimusho that the group of six members, KAT-TUN, who were to do a 1-week consecutive performance at the Tokyo Dome on May, were added to a total of 8 consecutive days of performance. At the Johnny’s Jimusho there was an ‘update’ of the record of continuity of performances.

The arrangements for the continued performances from 5/15 to 5/21 are going first, but, as when reached the first deadline the status was ‘sold out’, right after that they added the 22nd hurriedly. Furthermore, it was settled that on the 6/14-15 they’ll perform at the same place, and from 5/29~31 at the Kyocera Dome Osaka.

Because of the total of 13 performances, the expenses are over 20 hundred million yen. For the Tokyo Dome performance, they’re making of about 10 thousand of posters etc. Just for advertising, it’s estimated an inversion of no less than 100 million yen.

Kamenashi Kazuya (23) commented [It can’t be more amazing. Let’s ENJOY it completely!!]. As Kamenashi Kazuya who likes baseball is friend of pitcher Matsuzaka Daisuke and Akinori Iwamura, Japan’s WBC selection’s players, it was said that there were plans of him producing the uniform of the WBC.
