I always enjoy seeing JUMP bb’s all grown-up despite them being forced to wear such tacky outfits.
Last May 11th, Hey!Say!JUMP performed at Tokyo Dome for their “Live with me in TOKYO DOME” concert. The words “Live” and “Love” were hung and a heart-shaped runway, 400 meters in length and illuminated with LED lights, was constructed leading to the main stage. It’s definitely one of Johnny’s largest scale production. It was later revealed that the heart-shaped stage is the group’s idea as all of them have turned 20 years old and they need to be one step forward. As for their aspirations now that they are in their 20’s, Yamada shared that he will show his erotic side from hereon and he wants a more “adult” JUMP. In addition, Yabu Kota, a soccer connoisseur, joked that he hasn’t received any notice yet about being Japan’s representative for World Cup.
All members participated actively during production stage from compositions, titles, and costumes. However, as the members are also individually busy, there was little time for them to get together and rehearse. “There was uneasiness during rehearsals, but it’s all good,” Yamada commented.
55,000 fans watched the show where the group also announced that they will be releasing their third album, “smart”, next month and will be on tour by August where they aim to mobilized 190,000 audiences. Yaotome Hikaru told the audience to look forward to their album since there will be “adult-like” songs and they are also involved in lyrics composition.
