A.B.C-Z member injured but more than ready for stage show
One of Johnny’s Jr. group A.B.C-Z’s members might be injured, but yesterday the group had showed they were staying positive for the start of their new stage show season, reports Sankei Sports.
It is the second year in a row A.B.C-Z take the lead roles in “少年たち (Shonen-tachi)“, which starts its season in Tokyo on September 4.
It has been reported group member Ryoichi Tsukada, who specialises in acrobatics, had tore a ligament in his left leg during rehearsals last month. Although this means he can’t perform any stunts until his leg recovers, the A.B.C-Z member said he was optimistic about the situation.
“I might not be able to do acrobatics, but I’m more enthusiastic than ever!”
Fellow group member Ryosuke Hashimoto had joked it could be worth coming to see the show while Tsukada is recovering.
“This might be the only time you’ll ever see Tsuka-chan not doing acrobatics.”
It has been reported Kansai Johnny’s Jr. member Akito Kiriyama said their talents were worth seeing as well.
“The Kansai team have come back better than last year, I think we’ll be some fierce competition for the other [Johnny’s Jr. from Tokyo],” he said.
“Yeah, but one of ours is injured…,” A.B.C-Z member Fumito Kawai said.
