Popular unit Tohoshinki held the finale of the additional concerts of “Tohoshinki Live Tour 2012 ～TONE～” in Tokyo Dome on 16 April. On this stage, which marks 3 years since they last had an independent concert in Tokyo Dome, Yunho smiled saying, “I’m so happy that I cannot put it in words.” Looking at the venue which was dyed red by lightsticks, they expressed their gratitude to the fans, “Everyone’s ‘red power’ is a great source of strength to us. When we restarted activities last January, and when we begun the tour in January this year, we were nervous and anxious. However, there is no anxiety now! Because there is everyone who supports us, and allows Tohoshinki to continue. Thank you for waiting all this while.” The duo showcased their charisma with powerful performances of 25 songs.
They appeared dressed in white, and showcased energetic stages with dance tracks such as “B.U.T (BE-AU-TY)” and “Superstar”, hyping up the atmosphere in the venue. They opened the concert by greeting the fans with, “We will give our all and showcase all that we have worked hard to prepare,” (Yunho) and, “In this huge venue, it’s just Tohoshinki and everyone! Let’s sing and dance together and enjoy ourselves.” (Changmin)
This tour makes use of “3D Mapping” to create optical illusions, and also has many other interesting points including the use of umbrellas as props. For their solo stages, the duo showcased contrasting performances. Yunho used a sexy dance in “Honey Funny Bunny” to highlight his charms, while Changmin performed X Japan’s “Rusty Nail” powerfully with his fist raised in the air, his wild charm blew the crowd of 55,000 away.
Towards the end, the duo went around the venue in floats, and threw small signed coloured balls into the audience stands. The fans were excited and let out deafening cheers. During “We Are”, which was added to the concert, they taught the fans the “T Jump”. When the duo shout “We Are”, the fans in the venue form “T” with their hands. The duo had satisfied expressions on their faces upon seeing this.
During the encore, the audience was prompted to do a wave, and the entire venue became one during “Weep”. During the concert on 15 April, Yunho was moved to tears by the surprise event by the fans, where they filled the entire venue with white penlights. He said, “I felt ‘This is Tokyo Dome’. Tohoshinki likes being on stage the most, and it is when we are the happiest. I think this is a beginning. Tohoshinki exists because everyone exists. Please continue to give us your passionate support from here on.” The duo then took a deep bow.
The tour was of the largest scale thus far for the unit, attracting 250,000 people during their arena tours, and a total of 165,000 people during the three consecutive nights at Tokyo Dome. 135,000 audiences are expected at the Kyocera Dome Osaka concerts, which will be held this weekend (over 3 days), bringing the total number of audiences at the 26 concerts to 550,000. In addition, it has been decided for Tohoshinki to hold fan events in Saitama and Hyogo Prefecture (Kobe) in June and July, which are expected to attract 100,000 people.
