With only short trips back to Korea, they will spend most of nearly two months in Japan, performing at a total of 8 cities. This time around, they will be performing at much larger venues compared to their first and second tours. In this third tour, the five fab boys will be thrilling a whopping 180,000 delirious Japanese & International fans. They will hold concerts at cities such as Tokyo, Yokohama, Osaka, Fukuoka and Nagoya.

Wow Kpop-rubba! Good for you & all their American fans. Will this be the first time you go to a TVXQ live concert? Where will they be performing in the US? And only 1 show?

Yes, they will be here in the US!!! Excited that they will be here, but sadly family reunion that weekend. Out of all weekends. Next time when they are here I will definitely attend!

Brian Joo from Fly to the Sky is one of the MC's and will also be performing with Hawnhee. Its not to be missed, for those who are fans.

Orchid said...

@erv...yeah although i am not a DBSK die-hard fan, i was missing them a bit. =) I bet their Korean fans are missing them...since they are always in Japan lately. But the boys are really nice and i saw in one Korean program, they specially went back to Korean for a SHORT WHILE to interact with their fans. Awww...so sweet.

Is this the 1st time DBSK will perform in the USA?

it'll be their 3rd time BUT they haven't stepped foot in the western hemisphere in nearly 4 years! So it's a huge deal xD!

This will be their 3rd time in the U.S? I know they were here in 2004 for the HB, but when was the other time?

They are gaining immense popularity in Japan. They once again topped Oricon this week! I'm so proud of them. <3

@anonymous...they topped the charts with their song "Beautiful You"?

Yep! They grabbed the #1 weekly spot with total first week sales of 62k. =)

Beautiful You is an awesome song, btw.

I just wanna add that with Beautiful You being #1, they are the first non-Japanese Asian act to have two #1 weekly singles in the last 24 years.
