After a five month hiatus away, B2ST is back to conquer Japan !
The boy group met up with 24,000 fans at the Saitama Super Arena for their ‘B2ST Second Fan Meet in Japan‘ on August 8th. Since their world tour concert which began in Yokohama in March, this was their first activity back in Japan in five months, as well as their first fan meet in nearly a year and a month.
“Fans made long lines outside the arena since the early morning. Fans that weren’t able to get a hold of tickets stood in line anyway and bought ‘Beautiful Show‘ merchandise before going back home,” representatives of Cube Entertainment previously expressed.
A six city tour in Japan starting in October is currently being planned by B2ST. The fan meet is just the start of many exciting things to come for Japanese fans. The stage with their hits like “Shock“, “Fiction“, and “Beautiful“ were commanded by B2ST as always.
A talk time was also held by the group and they also participated in fun activities with their fans. Doojoon selected some fans even to receive projects with a personal touch by the members themselves such as a drawing.
When the group’s performance for “Beautiful Night“ was brought out, the Japanese fans’ voices filled the venue as they followed along with the song shouting out the Korean fan chants.
