EXO never stops reaching a new benchmark in their career. Without a doubt, all their sold-out concerts are always attended by thousands of fans. In fact, in their recent tour in an East Asian country, they have just raised the number to more than a hundred thousand. How huge is this series of concerts they have just lately completed?
According to AllKPop, as cited by KPopStarz, the all-boy group have just wrapped up their EXO’luXion Tour Japanese concerts. The total attendance of fans in their concerts is approximately 300,000. They performed for the following venue : Fukuoka (Oct. 31- Nov.1), Tokyo (Nov. 6-8) and Osaka (Nov. 13-15).
The total number is likely expected since there are around 145,000 supporters who tropped to the Tokyo leg alone. The excited fans were treated with several performance from the hit songs of EXO including “Overdose”, “Call Me Baby” and “Growl”. They have added the euphoric ambiance of the concert with their own rendition of Japanese songs like “Drop That” and “Love Me Right”.
They continue captivating the hearts of their Japanese followers. It was reported that their album “Love Me Right- Romantic Universe” has a staggering 147,000 copies sold on its date of release. That’s another huge record in the Japanese music chart.
Their popularity isn’t just proven in Korea and Japan because when Disney collaborated with the group to promote Star Wars across other Asian countries, then that is definitely a proof of their great influence. According to Billboard as cited by Yibada, EXO has just released their newest music video which highlights the Star-Wars intergalactic theme. The sons entitled “Lightsaber” will definitely encourage more fans to watch the film even those who aren’t yet much familiar with this Western story. There are reports stating this will just be the first of the many collaboration Disney will do along with other Hallyu wave artists.
What more can EXO accomplish in the years to come?
