Johnny Kitagawa tells off Sexy Zone
Sexy Zone, who made their CD debut in November last year, had their first concert at the Tokyo International Forum that day. It was originally scheduled to be a single concert with 5000 fans, but after receiving 360,000 requests for concert tickets, two extra shows had been added.
Group member So Matsushima talked to the press following the concert.
“I was so happy to be able to meet fans three times. I was so upset the first time I heard there was only going to be one concert.”
His comment however, got him in trouble with his boss Johnny Kitagawa.
“You need to be more thankful that you could do a concert. Make sure you give each and every performance everything you have,” he said.
It has been reported Matsushima bit his lip, nodded, and finally said, “I understand”.
Nevertheless, Mr Kitagawa said Sexy Zone delivered a good show.
“It was a great success. Kids these days learn things so fast.”
He also hinted he hoped Sexy Zone would not pull a Jin Akanishi and go behind his back to get married.
“These kids are still too young to get married so it’s nice I don’t have to worry about them.”
Sexy Zone will now start getting ready for their Arena concerts in Yokohama Arena and Osaka-jo Hall, which start at the end of March.
