Sakamoto Masayuki Musical Concert: ONE MAN STANDING  
Long time, no see, community! I come to you today to scream about Maa-kun's first solo concert! I'm basically reposting stuff I've posted on tumblr, along with a translation of the official site that went up the other night.

Sakamoto Masayuki’s first solo concert, all songs from musicals
We learned on the 12th that Sakamoto Masayuki (44) will be performing the first Johnny’s & Associates musical concert.

The title of the show will be “ONE MAN STANDING.” Running from February 5th to 7th, it will be held at Shibuya’s Bunkamura Orchard Hall, which boasts of preeminent, palatial audio equipment. It will be a distinct concert in that it will only feature songs from musicals.

Sakamoto is enthusiastic about the show, stating, “my first musical was 24 years ago, and I’ve played a lot of roles and sang and danced a lot of different numbers, and I’d like to bring those all back. Concerts and musicals are different, so I’d like to make this a new show (tn: he used “Show” in English here) filled with beautiful musical numbers, and I’ll be happy if I can make this a show people will enjoy.“

This is the first time a Johnny’s idol will be performing at Orchard Hall outside of a stage play. This is also Sakamoto’s first solo concert outside of V6. This year is their 20th year. Running through a beautiful anniversary year into next year, he’s still aiming to step up his game, being the first to tackle independent projects in the coming year.


Sakamoto Masayuki will stand on the stage of that musical palace, Orchard Hall! He'll be holding the first musical concert!!

Sakamoto has been waiting to bring to you this entertainment concert at that musical palace, Orchard Hall.
The songs will focus on songs Sakamoto will select himself of musicals he's done thus far.
It won't just be a regular performace of the chosen songs, but rather a rearrangement of them to make it new and give it a real concert feel.

Sakamoto is burning with ambition to attempt this first musical concert.
With wonderful songs that have gone down in musical history, Sakamoto will bring out an all new charm.
