Quick and dirty translation of an article from today. Apologies for errors.http://news.nifty.com/cs/entame/showbizddetail/kyodo-2010071601000885/1.htm( Image of article behind cut.Collapse )KAT-TUN's Kamenashi: "There is no break-up."
On the 16th, KAT-TUN's Kamenashi Kazuya, Tanaka Kouki, Nakamaru Yuuichi, Taguchi Junnosuke and Ueda Tatsuya responded to interviewers' questions before their concert at Tokyo Dome.
The five answered questions for the first time since member Akanishi Jin has devoted himself to solo activities. Kamenashi commented, "We are very sorry that we caused the fans worry. But since there's definitely no break-up or anything like that, please be reassured." Tanaka also laughed and said, "We're not going to let that (a break-up) happen."
Again, when Kamenashi was asked, "Will there be a linking up (with Akanishi) for concerts?", he laughed and answered, "We haven't heard from him at all. Is he in Japan right now?"
But the five say they support Akanishi's solo activities. Kamenashi said, "I heard that the L.A. performances were a success, and because it's always been Akanishi's dream and intention, that's great. I think that at such a time, tying him to our activities as KAT-TUN would be ridiculous. Both individual activity and activity as members are equally important to us."
The tour has ten performances planned, in Tokyo, Korea, Taiwan etc.
