Although the concerts were held on weekdays this year, fans still experienced a fierce competition to grab tickets, as over 400,000 K-pop aficionados in Japan swarmed ticketing sites to purchase their seats. Those fans who weren’t able to nab tickets were seen hanging in groups outside the concert stadium, hoping to catch echoes of performances ebbing from inside.

Because of the numerous amounts of fans who held up placards requesting for additional concert dates, SM Entertainment decided to go ahead and add two more concerts at the Tokyo Dome, which will be able to seat 50,000 fans for April 9th and 10th.

Rewinding back to the “SM Town LIVE IN TOKYO” concerts (held on January 25th and 26th), the three-hour musical bonanza brought together Kang Ta, BoA, TVXQ, Super Junior, SNSD, SHINee, f(x), Trax‘s Jung Mo, J-Min and many others.

Super Junior’s Yesung, Ryeowook, and SHINee’s Onew earned an especially explosive response from the audience for teaming up with a Japanese tenor artist, Masafumi Akikawa, to perform “Sen no Kaze ni Natte” which Japanese fans were able to relate to.
