Nogizaka46 Takes Over Not Only One, but Two Stages for Birthday Live
Nogizaka46 will be getting a belated birthday celebration, after postponing their annual anniversary live which was originally scheduled for February. Their “Nogizaka46 6th YEAR BIRTHDAY LIVE” was announced with an interesting surprise—it will be held ‘at the same time’ at Meiji Jingu Stadium and Chichibunomiya Rugby Stadium from July 6 to 8, 2018. It is the first time in the group’s history that two venues will be used concurrently. It is likely to be a concert of unprecedented scale, set to mobilize 180,000 people.
The surprise announcement came during their release event for their new single “Synchronicity” on May 12 in Nagoya. With such astonishing news, the members themselves expressed their bewilderment as they wondered out loud how the logistics of such a live would be carried out.
In the end captain Reika Sakurai stirred up the anticipation for an all-new kind of concert never seen before, and asked the fans to come celebrate with them.
In addition to their birthday live, the “Nogizaka46 Manatsu no Zenkoku Tour 2018” was also announced. It will kick off at the Fukuoka Yahuoku! Dome on July 21 before continuing to Yanmar Stadium Nagai in Osaka, Nagoya Dome in Aichi and Hitomebore Stadium in Miyagi with an anticipated number of 346,000 attendees.
