Arashi announces largest tour record ever with 50 concerts and 2.37 million audience

From AramaJapan

Arashi held their Tokyo leg of  “ARASHI Anniversary Tour 5 × 20” at the Tokyo Dome on the 23rd. On this day, the unannounced “and more” phase of their tour has been announced! Their anniversary tour will total 50 performances and bring in 2.37 million audience, the largest tour record in Japan. With more than 2 million registered fanclub members, it was difficult for fans to score a ticket to an Arashi concert. The latest scale of the group’s tour will be able to accommodate a huge number of their fans.

Sakurai Sho comments “It was difficult to meet all fans. Finally we can announce it. I would like to see fans who we were not able to see until now, until the end of next year. We are holding the biggest tour in the history of Arashi.”

Matsumuto Jun “Since we haven’t done 50 concerts until now, I wonder what will happen? I hope you can see it while looking back on the past 20 years. I hope the power of our songs can be conveyed.”

The group has collaborated with Japanese visual and tehnical teams such as teamLab and WOW. There are plenty of contents such as an opening production using 2 million Swarovski crystals in costumes, gondolas, and an “ARASHI MOVING STAGE” that runs around the arena.”

Wow, it’s already their 20th anniversary! I have been kind of a sluggish fan lately (shame on me lol), but I will definitely be on the look out for their activities. I cannot wait for their DVD to be released on this.

Initiative Q Invites

Just found out about this and signing up, who knows it might be the next bitcoin!! Nothing to lose since it’s free!

Initiative Q is an attempt by ex-PayPal guys to create a new payment system instead of credit cards that were designed in the 1950s. The system uses its own currency, the Q, and to get people to start using the system once it’s ready they are allocating Qs for free to people that sign up now (the amount drops as more people join – so better to join early). Signing up is free and they only ask for your name and an email address. There’s nothing to lose but if this payment system becomes a world leading payment method your Qs can be worth a lot. If you missed getting bitcoin seven years ago, you wouldn’t want to miss this.
