2011 KAT-TUN concert tour to be full of worldwide surprises

Outdoor concerts in Japan, the first Johnny’s concert in Hawaii, more concerts in South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, and China, KAT-TUN’s 5th anniversary tour is set to be bigger than ever, reports Sports Hochi.

The group’s 2011 concert tour will focus on the number “5”.  The five members will celebrate the group’s fifth anniversary and tour around five locations in Japan from spring to summer, followed by five international venues from autumn.

It has been reported that the concerts will not be held in a traditional concert hall or stadium, but at outdoor complex venues with different surprises at each city.

KAT-TUN will be the first Johnny’s group to hold a formal concert in Hawaii, and will also be able to visit Thailand, where they were not able to visit this year because of the country’s political activity.

At a press conference held before their Taiwan concert yesterday, Kamenashi talked about performing without Jin Akanishi (25).

“The responsibility we feel as a group has grown stronger, and we can talk openly about which way we want KAT-TUN to go,” he said.

Koki Tanaka (24) had said the group’s bond had gotten stronger as well.

“I was worried at first, but after seeing how the fans and staff were cheering us on, it got my act together.

“When the five of us go out to eat, talk about what we want to do with KAT-TUN comes out naturally,” he said.

While Akanishi has not made a formal appearance announcing his retirement, Yuichi Nakamaru (27) said they had had dinner together.

“He told us he was sorry for the trouble he had caused,” he said.

Tanaka added the two had their own goals.

“It’s not that we hate him now.  We just hope that both of us can succeed in our own ways,” he said.
