Tatsuya Ueda returns to stage in Taiwan
KAT-TUN’s Tatsuya Ueda (26) returned to the stage yesterday with his ankle bandaged up, but it didn’t stop him from being a part of their concert from start to finish, reports Sponichi Annex.
One day after dislocating his left toe, which was later found to be fractured as well, the singer made a come back by attending a fan event and the group’s second concert in Taipei on Saturday night.
It has been reported Ueda appeared only wearing his right shoe, while his left ankle had been bandaged up. With his left leg dragging slightly as he walked, the singer said he could still feel a little pain.
However, during concert rehearsals it was decided no major changes were required, and dance routines only needed minor alterations. Ueda managed to strap himself onto wires and perform flying routines 15 metres in the air.
During the concert, Ueda apologized to his fans for letting them down the day before.
“I caused the group trouble, and I feel guilty for not being able to show our Taiwanese fans, who had been looking forward to KAT-TUN’s performance, a full 5-member team until the end,” he said.
After returning to Japan on August 29, Ueda had said he wasn’t going to slow down preparations for his solo concert in Hiroshima.
“With the support of my staff and cast, I’m going to work as hard as possible to give my fans a good show.
“I’m already taking lots of calcium!” He said.
