ATEEZ : A world tour successfully completed in Japan
ATEEZ successfully completed its final concerts of the 2022 World Tour « THE FELLOWSHIP : BREAK THE WALL in CHIBA » on December 11-12 in Japan.
Earlier, last month, ATEEZ released their third Japanese mini-album titled « THE WORLD EP. PARADIGM » on November 30 and ranked No. 1 on the Oricon « Daily », « Weekly » and « Weekly Total » album charts. This album also topped Billboard Japan’s « Hot Album » and « Weekly Top Album Sales » charts, proving the group’s popularity in the country.
ATEEZ members (HONGJOONG, SEONGHWA, YUNHO, YEOSANG, SAN, MINGI, WOOYOUNG, JONGHO) performed to a sold-out crowd in front of 30,000 fans on December 11-12 at the Makuhari Messe stage in Chiba, Japan . The group performed several songs such as: « ANSWER », « ROCKY », « HALA HALA », « WIN », or the Japanese version of « CYBERPUNK ». ATEEZ therefore showed its powerful stage dominance to the local ATINYs (fandom name) with this setlist, and also communicated with them in Japanese while greeting them friendly.
In response, at the end of the concert, the ATINYs introduced the surprise project they had lovingly prepared for ATEEZ, moving the group members to heart. Indeed, fans sang aloud the lyrics « If this is my way / Hold my hand tightly » and « Where you are / I’ll stand » borrowed from the lyrics of ATEEZ songs « MIST » and « WAVE », while holding banners.
Meanwhile, ATEEZ, which has concluded the first leg of its world tour « THE FELLOWSHIP : BREAK THE WALL » for the year 2022 passing through the United States, Canada, and Japan, will continue with its European tour in 2023.
