The boy band TVXQ has finally achieved its dream of performing at the Tokyo Dome. According to SM Entertainment, TVXQ drew more than 100,000 people to its two concerts entitled “4th Live Tour 2009 – The Secret Code” and held July 4-5 at the Tokyo Dome.
Opening the concerts with “Secret Game,” TVXQ performed 32 songs for 3 hours and 20 minutes. The repertoire included “How Did I Come To Love You?”, “Nobody Knows,” “MItoritc,” “Somebody To Love,” “Love In The Ice” and “The Way U Are.”
Each member also staged a solo performance. Hero and Micky sang the ballad “Colors – Melody and Harmony” in a duet, while Chang-min sang the rock-beat song “Wild Soul,” receiving a favorable response from the audience.
The TVXQ members said they were happy to finally perform at the Tokyo Dome and that their Japanese-speaking skills are now good enough to convey their feelings through their songs. “We have grown a lot,” said the members.
The band drew 300,000 people to its 21 concerts in nine Japanese cities. Japanese media, including The Nikkan Sports and The Sports Nippon, lauded TVXQ for reaffirming its top status in the Japanese music market and for achieving the so-called “300,000 feat” by drawing 300,000 people to its concerts, releasing 300,000 singles and selling 300,000 copies of its albums.
In August, TVXQ will perform at the Japanese summer festival A-Nation along with top Japanese artists. (KBS)
