Kis-My-Ft2 hold event on Osaka’s iconic river
It has been reported the Johnny’s group had released their third single “SHE! HER! HER!” on this day, and to celebrate, they held a secret event in Osaka. The seven appeared coming down the Dotonbori canal on a boat before performing “SHE! HER! HER!” and “Everybody Go” for their fans.
“I’ve never performed on top of a boat. In ten years time, I’ll still remember everything about this day,” said Hiromitsu Kitayama.
The Kis-My-Ft2 event had only been announced on local radio stations shortly before it was going to start, but it still managed to attract 10,000 people. Radio station FM OSAKA who streamed the event live had said they got more than 1000 calls about this event, three times the number of calls they normally get.
As the group passed the famous Glico billboard on their boat, they took the same pose as the Glico man in the billboard (a man running through a finish line). Glico produce the KISSMINT chewing gum the group are now endorsing.
“I think of that iconic bridge and the Glico (billboard) when someone mentions Osaka. To be able to get a photo of the seven of us right here was something really special to me. I was also excited to hear the fans cheering us on using their Osaka dialect,” said Taisuke Fujigaya.
“I was happy to see there weren’t only women, but also men at the show,” said Yuta Tamamori.
