“JOHNNY’S World” stage show to be biggest Johnny’s-produced show yet
Hey! Say! JUMP, Sexy Zone, A.B.C-Z, Koichi Domoto (KinKi Kids), Hideaki Takizawa (Tackey & Tsubasa), Kazuya Kamenashi (KAT-TUN) are among the 100 cast members to be in the largest Johnny’s stage show starting in November, reports Sponichi Annex and Daily Sports Online.
It has been reported Guinness World Record-holding producer Johnny Kitagawa is making his largest show yet to celebrate his records for producing the most number of concerts and most number of No.1 singles in the world.
Set to be performed in Tokyo’s Imperial Garden Theater in November and December this year, “JOHNNY’S World” will feature Hey! Say! JUMP as the main characters. They will be supported by other younger Johnny’s groups, as well as supporting talents including Koichi, Tackey, and Kamenashi. The story looks at youngsters going on an adventure to find a utopia in outer space, but in the process they realise how special their home on Earth is.
“I want the younger juniors to take on what their seniors have already accomplished. Maybe we’ll need Higashi (Noriyuki Higashiyama) to give them some advice,” Mr Kitagawa said.
Members from Kis-My-Ft2 will take turns every day as they also join the 100 or so Johnny’s talent cast. Mostly all of the younger Johnny’s groups will take part in what is set to be the largest Johnny’s production to date.
Mr Kitagawa has said the show will feature a mash up of things seen in past stage shows like “PLAYZONE”, “SHOCK”, and “DREAM BOYS”. These include flying stunts and water fountain sets.
“3D is in fashion right now, but I’m keen to test ‘4D’ fragrance tricks,” he said.
It has been reported Mr Kitagawa has promised every minute of the show will be exciting, and although he has plans to send the show overseas, he wants to start in Japan, the country where he managed to set his two world records.
