Yui Yokoyama Gets Her First Center Song! Performed During Osaka Dome Show.
The first Osaka date of AKB48 2013 Manatsu no Dome Tour – Madamada, Yaranakya Ikenai Koto ga Aru – was held at Kyocera Dome Osaka on August 7th.
The Kyocera dome, the third venue of the tour following Fukuoka and Sapporo, is a place that the members had hoped to perform at someday. On stage, NMB48, who are based in Osaka, performed actively throughout the concert. Aya Yamamoto solemnly played “Dazai Osamu wo Yonda ka?” on acoustic guitar, and Team N, who is soon to have their first original performance, played the song “Aoi Tsuki ga Miteru Kara” for the first time. The song is also to be played at their own performance.
During the encore Yui Yokoyama’s first center song “Mienai Sora wa Itsudemo Aoi” was performed. The song was written to congratulate Yokoyama on testing and qualifying as a pharmacy clerk as a part of a TV commercial project by an education company UCAN. The start of the performance also included the shooting of a new commercial, where Yokoyama the pharmacist clerk takes off her white cloak to become an idol.
The commercial is to be broadcast starting August 18th, and the song will be used as the BGM.
