Weird title? I mean to translate some news article. I’m random like that. 🙂
CNBLUE in Japan rock music festival “Music & Beards 2011” for the first time, “We feel like we’ve come to a celebration!”
The summer music festival “Music & Beards 2011” held in Nagoaka on August 27 is a big event attracting 15,000 music lovers! The performers include CNBLUE, Kishidan, 3rd Generation J Soul Brothers, T.M.Revolution, NICO Touches the Walls, FUNKY MONKEY BABYS and miwa. Almost all are Japanese musicians. CNBLUE are the only K-POP artists. And the guest of honor is Tomoyasu Hotei.
As for CNBLUE, they’ve been in many K-Pop music festivals. But I think it’s their first time in this kind of live for Japanese musicians.
That day, Yonghwa greeted the fans as the MC, saying, “We’re CNBLUE from Korea. We flew on a plane, took the Shinkansen and rode on a car to get here.” It’s just chit-chat but it really looked like they just arrived and were kind of tired of the journey.
At the end of the performance, CNBLUE said, “Though it’s our first time in a music festival here in Japan, we feel like we have come to a celebration. There are 15,000 people here. Looking at how the audience cheer for us as one, we have goose bumps. We’re really very happy. We hope to be able to join another rock music festival soon.” I can see that they were really very happy.
And Tomoyasu Hotei, who attended “Music & Beards” too, commented as follows on his blog.
I met with CNBLUE members and 3rd Generation J Soul Brothers. They introduced themselves and gave me their CDs. They are very polite and bright boys. I told CNBLUE members that I hope to have the chance of sharing stage with them in Korea!
If they will really perform with Tomoyasu Hotei in Korea, that will be awesome.
It’d be great if they can be very active as a band in Japan in the future too.
