Yamashita Tomohisa (Yama-P) recently captivated viewers with his energetic acting in the Fuji TV drama series ‘ブザー・ビート～崖っぷちのヒーロー～ / Buzzer Beat～Gakeppuchi no Hero～’. Now he is set to enthrall fans with his singing.
With a new single in tow, Yama-P will finally hold his first ever solo concert. He is going to perform 5 concerts in 3 days at Yokohama Arena, and is set to attract a total of 75,000 fans. It will be a large scale live act just perfect for Yama-P. After Nishikido Ryo, Yama-P will become the second NEWS member to hold a solo concert (excluding the duo Tegomass).
The concert title is ‘First Solo～短いけれどいい時間(とき)を～SHORT BUT SWEET / First Solo～Mijikai keredo Ii Toki o～SHORT BUT SWEET’.
Yama-P himself came up with the name, and it is meant to be a message to the fans that will come see him perform. [The Japanese subtitle starting from ‘Mijikai…’ roughly means ‘Although there’s only limited time, let’s make the most out of it.’] Yama-P seemed intent on breaking new ground.
“It is my first time in ages to perform as a solo artist, so I’m really looking forward to it. It is my first ever solo concert, so I hope the audience will be able to see a different side of myself.”
