JYJ American World Wide Concert, a Successful Start
JYJ (Jaejoong, Yoochun, Junsu), who has finished its Asia Tour of a month and has embarked on an American Tour, gifted the fans a dreamlike two hours on May 20 in Vancouver, Canada, and on the 22nd in New Jersey.
JYJ successfully completed their Asia Tour touring in Thailand, Taiwan, and China and the like. JYJ World Tour 2011 continued onto the American region and JYJ had a smooth first step. JYJ’s concerts, held on May 20 in Vancouver, Canada’s Rogers Arena and on May 22 in New Jersey’s Prudential Center, were bustling with crowds of much variety. The tour has become the talk of the town by bringing together JYJ who are continually challenging themselves anew as musicians and AEG Live which is not only the second-largest concert promotion firm in the world but also plans the concerts of top pop artists of the world.
Javier Alcaraz, the sound engineer of the Vancouver concert, said: “I became enamored with JYJ’s singing ability. I am in anticipation for what they will show in the remainder of the tour.” Praise from the affiliates of the concert continued– Brian Jerkins, the lighting engineer of the New Jersey concert, said: “JYJ is a group that is bursting with talent. The appeal and charisma of each member were well-displayed in this concert.” Amanda Douglas, an audience in the New Jersey concert, also revealed her impressions: “I am sincerely thankful that JYJ can perform in the United States. Empty Remix created the mood of being in a club at midnight on a Saturday. The performances of the new songs, Get Out and In Heaven and others, were also very excellent.”
The afterword is that Susan Rosenbluth, Vice President of AEG Live which is a firm that has taken the executive responsibility for concerts of internationally-renowned artists such as Celine Dion and Bon Jovi, surprised the firm’s employees by visiting JYJ’s concert scene herself, an unprecedented act.
After the concert finished JYJ revealed its impressions: “We feel thrilled to the degree that we cannot describe it in words. It was a fantastical two hours. At the thought that we were a worldwide team, our hearts overflowed and we were excited. Looking at the people of many different races become one with our music and even sing along the Korean lyrics, we felt electrified.”
At the same time, JYJ is looking forward to the Los Angeles Concert on May 27 and San Jose on June 3 for the American regions. They will have a Charity Concert in Japan on June 7 and come back to Korea to have the finale of the JYJ World Tour Concert in Pusan on June 11 and 12.
