Okay, so we have another “injured” in Johnny’s world.
Kanjani8 is currently wrapping-up their “Kanjani8 no genki ga deru LIVE!!” in Kyocera Dome, Osaka but Okura Tadayoshi wouldn’t be able to finish it. Okura didn’t join the group for their final performance on Jan 17th due to intestinal obstruction.
According to reports, Okura complained of abdominal pain last Jan 16th but he still went on to do his radio program, “All Night Nippon Saturday Special” with Takahashi Yu. Okura ignore the pain overnight before he went to the hospital where he was diagnosed with intestinal obstruction. Consequently, Okura’s physician prohibits him to do a live performance.
This is the first time that Kanjani8 will be performing live with only 6 members. The 6 appeared in plain clothes onstage where Murakami Shingo informed 40,005 fans that only the 6 of them will be appearing and asked if its okay. The fans cheered for the group and they soon changed to their costumes to begin their performance.
In lieu of Okura’s absence, he released an official apology to all fans at the Johnny’s website.
Get well soon Tacchon!
