iKON performed live today at Japan’s Annual prestigious A-Nation Festival, the Crown Jewel of J-Pop Summer Festivals, for the 2nd time in their less than 2 year career and iKONICs proved that Konfire (the ocean of the Konbat light stick) can burn as brightly as the sun!
The Concert took place at Japan’s Ajinomoto Stadium in Chofu, Tokyo, an almost 50,000 capacity venue and was well attended by happy festival fans.
Japanese iKONICs came in numbers – men, women, youth and children – and after buying out three stalls worth of merchandise they coloured the stadium fire red with a passion that Yunhyeong would have been proud of!
iKON’s set came up at about 5pm and many non fans were shocked at the amount of support they recieved. It was still daylight but the stadium suddenly began to blaze with Konfire and the fan chants rose!
iKON put on an energetic set including in order:
Rhythm Ta (Rock ver.)
Dumb & Dumber
Despite two members literally flying in from overseas schedules, iKON performed as strongly as ever and entertained with their signature wild Ad-libs and infectious energy.
They were also able to communicate well with the audience in fluent Japanese during their Ments! It’s no wonder the boys even trended in Japan!
iKON’s Japan schedule will kick off officially in September with the start of their New Kids Japan Tour that includes 22 Concerts.
Meanwhile, their Mini Album continues to do very well, topping charts like Tower Records, Oricon and Billboard and proving iKON’s unrelenting popularity in Japan.
