Arashi Ends 5-Dome Tour with State-of-the-Art Technology

Speechless by the awesomeness of everyone.

As reported,

Last Dec 23rd, Popular group Arashi celebrated the final day of their 5-large Dome Tour at Tokyo Dome.

Titled as “THE DIGITALIAN“, state-of-the-art digital technology were used for 55,000 fans. Instead of using penlight, LED fan-lights in were used to illuminate the entire dome. A first of attempt in the world, Matsumoto Jun worked with structure and production that took three years and he’s satisfied to see the results. “I was able to see a wonderful scene in your favor,” he commented as fan-lights get illuminated in Arashi’s five colors using wireless LED system.

LED system aside, all members heart rate were monitored from the beginning, real-time on a video. The members also attached muscle sensor to their arms during their “Hope in the Darkness” performance to catch the movement of their muscles, in return, they can manipulate the lights and sounds. As for division of labor, Leader Ohno Satoshi was responsible with the choreography of four songs. In addition, Aiba Masaki also had a surprise birthday celebration, Aiba’s birthday falls on the 24th, “it’s really good to be born on Christmas eve”. Taking advantage of the fanlights, chosen lights turned to green (Aiba’s color) with a message, “Omedatou Masaki”.

Arashi will end this year after celebrating a milestone, which is their 15th year anniversary that they celebrated in Hawaii. All in all, Arashi sang 37 songs and they were able to mobilized 845,000 people from 5 venues and 18 performances.

  1. …Fancy o.o
    I must say, the heart-rate-thing is a pretty cool idea. Wouldn’t want that for the whole concert, but considering the overall setting it serves as a pretty cool intro!
    I would have loved to see those LED-lights live.

  2. That’s so cool. I can’t believe Jun has been working on it for such a long time but congrats to him and the staff that made it possible.
