News and footage from their Budokan concert. :thumbsup

S/mileage hold their 1st solo live concert at Nippon Budokan
July 16, 2014

On July 15, 6-member idol group S/mileage held their first ever solo live concert, "S/mileage LIVE 2014 Natsu FULL CHARGE ~715 Nippon Budokan~", at Nippon Budokan.

The leader of the group Wada Ayaka cheerfully greeted the audience, "The one to cause an excitement today here at Nippon Budokan will be us, S/mileage!" Fellow member Fukuda Kanon, who couldn't stop her tears from the start, followed her with, "We will liven up the stage while making 8,000 of your faces fully charged with smiles!"

S/mileage was first formed back in April 2009 consisting of former Hello! Pro Egg members. After their indie activities, they made their major debut with "Yume Miru 15-sai" in 2010.

One of the first generation members, Fukuda, who has experienced fellow members graduations, revealed her thoughts, "I have wished that I left the group with them. I thought about leaving many times and even searched for well-paid part time jobs. Even so, because of the fans' warmth, I still feel that it is such a happy thing to be able to stay as an idol. I would like to continue working hard to go further, to the bigger venues, so please show us the beautiful 6-colored glowing sticks!"

One of the second generation members, Nakanishi Kana also looked back over the past, saying, "There was a time I was kicked out during voice training, and I was scolded by the manager every day, but now that we are standing on the stage of Budokan, I think I was able to repay an obligation at least for a little bit."

During the live concert, the girls performed 23 songs including their new song "Chikyu wa Kyo mo Ai wo Hagukumu" (to be released on August 20 as double A-side single with 'Aa Susukino') and enthused over 8000 audience members.

To celebrate S/mileage's first live at the Budokan, other groups from Hello! Project that include Morning Musume '14, Juice=Juice, Berryz Kobo, and ℃-ute visited the venue. Their producer Tsunku♂, who is currently undergoing treatment for laryngeal cancer, also watched over the group's big moment.

S/mileage hold their 1st solo live concert at Nippon Budokan
July 16, 2014

On July 15, 6-member idol group S/mileage held their first ever solo live concert, "S/mileage LIVE 2014 Natsu FULL CHARGE ~715 Nippon Budokan~", at Nippon Budokan.

Just a bit confused by the term "...1st solo live..."

What were these previous concerts if they are not solo lives?

http://www.generasia.com/wiki/S/mileage_Concert_Tour_2011_Aki_~Gyakushuu_no_Chou_Miniskirt~

Of course, VERY happy to know they did a live at the Budokan, I have been wanting a big breakthrough for S/mileage for some time.  I hope this now means they will get a regular cycle of gigs.  But natsu?  I thought natsu was mainly the full H!P summer concerts, with haru and aki being the main time for individual unit concerts.  Guess I should look back through the concert lists...

It's not saying that it was their first solo concert ever, it's saying that it's the first time that they've had one AT Budokan.

Ahahahah!!!  *slaps forehead in despair*  So obvious now I look at it, how crazy that I couldn't read it that way myself.   :banghead:   :angry:   :P   Thanks for clearing up the 'mystery'.

[EN] Concerning S/mileage
September 24, 2014 at 6:17am

S/mileage made their major debut for more than 4 years and a half.

We began as 4 members but on 2011 Ogawa and Maeda successively graduated and the group had to surpass a crisis.

During this crisis 2nd generation members have been added and 6 members composed the group since then. We, as 6 members, had to overcome many things and this year, we have been able to successfully perform at the Budokan, a dream for us.

For S/mileage, it was something really big and we have been able to get more self-confidence by ourselves.

We feel really gratitude towards the 4 members of the 2nd generation.

With the successful Budokan's live, we have reached the point of thinking that S/mileage can do things bigger and bigger.

Then during some habitual discussion with the 2nd generation, we sometimes felt anxiety from them about what will happen to the group if we, the original members, would graduate from S/mileage.

We discussed with our staff, and we will add members from Hello! Pro Kenshuusei. We think that adding new members would be a good stimulus for everyone.

With this new group' start, our name will change as well. We are currently taking applications for this new name.

It was "the first chapter" of S/mileage until now. We think that with the new group's name, we, as 6 members plus the new members will start "the second chapter".

To be able to do what we couldn't do until now, we would like to challenge new things in order to reach this potentiality.

Please continue to support us from now as well.

S/mileage Ayaka Wada, Kanon Fukuda

Quote from: Tsunku
Iya~ I'm surprised.

Those girls have grown up before I knew it.

That they'd plan something like this by themselves!

Eh!? Adding new members!

What!? A name change!

...I was surprised.

But since there's significance in them thinking hard about this themselves,
a forward-looking action like this makes me think they're nearing success.

I can only support them, right!

But I wonder what kind of name they'll have...
Do something like "S/mileーーーage". (lol)

*Thx to Ro-kun


Quote from: @namasma_eng twitter

Kana: very surprised, couldn't believe it. I think it's a good thing, very happy. want to create good environment for the 3rd gen. want members from different areas of the country. Happy for every day, thankful for 1st gen for accepting 2nd gen!

Meimei: Mei: expected 3rd gen but surprised about the name just like you. want to welcome 3rd gen. plz support the 3rd gen

Rina: took time for the 2nd gens to get accepted, want to make everyone accept 3rd gen asap! excited for new members now! sad about the name b/c I loved it. group name is important. excited to hear your ideas! we'll work hard so we can see your happy faces

Akari: it's true that we were kinda slacking. can't be like the youngest forever, we'll be senpai. We need to teach what we learned. Thankful that 1st gen didn't disband & accepted 2nd gen, and the 6 of us were able to hold Budokan concert successfully...
