Jang Keun-suk has rounded off his ‘2012 Jang Keun-suk Asian Tour,” which started in July, with a grand finale in Saitama, Japan.
Jang successfully performed two concerts in Saitama, Japan, the last date of his tour, on Nov. 26 and Nov.27, attracting audiences of 15,000 and 30,000 respectively.
He held a final concert in Saitama on Nov. 29 to end his tour.
In the latest concert at Saitama Super Arena held during the week, over 30,000 tickets for his performances sold out, proving his great popularity. He drove fans into a frenzy by singing, as an encore performance, two unreleased new songs from the album of project group Team-H, which was originally scheduled to be released next year.
During the concert, when the video image of Team-H, consisting of Jang and his music partner Big Brother, was displayed, fans danced to the energetic beat and melody, giving thunderous applause.
In the three-hour-long Saitama concert, fans were wowed by special events to commemorate the finale tour performance. Behind-the scenes video images from the previous performances in Yokohama, Osaka, Nagoya and Hukuoka were played on a specially decorated stage.
An audience of 30,000 flew colorful paper planes during the first day concert and colorful balloons during the second day concert, each, to commemorate the 20th anniversary of Jang’s debut. Moved by tributes prepared by fans, Jang responded to fans’ cheers with his unique hand kiss.
Jang said before the finale performance, “I achieved a lot and exchanged more with fans through this tour, which was firmly rooted as the brand of CRI show. I will do my best in the last performance.”
“2012 Jang Keun-suk Tour”, which had 16 concerts in nine Asian cities, ended with the finale performance in Saitama on Nov. 29.
