The Tour

The tour was a part of Arashi's summer tour in 2006, which also included concerts in various cities in Japan.

The first stop of the Asian tour was Bangkok, Thailand, where Arashi performed at the 2006 Asia Song Festival on September 21. Arashi was the only Japanese artist to participate in the festival, which also featured artists from Korea, China, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Vietnam.

They also held a fan meeting at Melon AX on September 23, where they interacted with their Thai fans and sang "Wish" and "ARASHI" again.

The next stop was Taipei, Taiwan, where Arashi held their first solo concerts outside Japan on September 16 and 17. The concerts were titled "ARASHI FIRST CONCERT 2006 in Taipei Ku Deng Le!
