Meanwhile in Japan: 2PM to perform at Tokyo Dome, 2nd album out in February
The Korean group 2PM will hold their first shows at Tokyo Dome on April 20 and 21, as was announced on December 31. They are now "overflowing with emotions" after they made their Japanese debut in May 2011 and achieved a dream they have held for about two years.
2PM are the 6th Korean group to perform at Tokyo Dome after Tohoshinki, JUNSU/JEJUNG/YUCHUN, Super Junior, Big Bang and KARA whose concert there will take place on January 6. After their successful six concerts at Nippon Budokan in Tokyo last May 2PM started their arena tour in November which has attracted about 150,000 people. Addressing their fans they said: "It has been our dream to perform at Tokyo Dome since our debut and we worked really hard to achieve it. Our hearts are overflowing with emotions now that we have finally realized this dream. To all of our fans, please watch over us when we stand on the stage we've been dreaming of for so long."
Before their much-longed-for shows at Tokyo Dome, 2PM will release their second Japanese album "LEGEND OF 2PM" on February 13. The album will contain 13 Japan-exclusive tracks including their singles "Beautiful" and "Masquerade" which both reached the number 2 spot on the weekly Oricon charts plus 9 new tracks including "This Is Love" composed by group member Junho.
The ticket sale for their Tokyo Dome concerts starts March 9.
