MAN WITH A MISSION performed two sold out nights at Yokohama Arena on May 21 and May 22. The crowd total across both days totalled 26,000.
On the first night (May 21), fans were unfortunately caught in a downfall of untimely rain. Guitarist, vocalist and rapper Jean-Ken Johnny acknowledged it from the offset, greeting fans by saying, “Thanks to all of you who have gathered here today despite such bad weather!”
During the early portion of the show, the wolf pack performed songs centred around their latest album Chasing the Horizon which dropped earlier this year. They also performed Remember Me, FLY AGAIN 2019 and Left Alive, all from their forthcoming new single set to hit shelves on June 5.
The band expressed their deep gratitude to fans in the middle of the set: “It’s been 9 years since we started this band, but I never thought we’d get to play 2 days at Yokohama Arena and see this many people. Thank you all so much for just being here today!”
Several actors ran on stage during the first show too as surprise guests to show their support including Masataka Kubota, Tsubasa Honda, Alice Hirose, Kenta Hamano, Tomomi Maruyama, Masato Yano, Sayaka Yamaguchi, and Kenichi Endō.
Masataka Kubota surged the excitement in the room too by greeting the crowd: “MAN WITH A MISSION fans, how are you all doing?”
