B.A.P to make Japan push



Boy group B.A.P has announced plans to release its first Japanese-language album in October, followed by a national tour.

The group, which just enjoyed plenty of success on the local charts with its song “Badman,” will also release its first Japanese-language EP, “Warrior.” To promote the release, B.A.P will then hold concerts in Japan’s major arenas starting in November, according to its agency TS Entertainment.

Starting in Kobe on Nov. 19, where B.A.P will hold two concerts, the group will move to Nagoya for another two-day concert starting Nov. 27. The tour will then wrap with two more concerts in Tokyo, on Dec. 4 and 5.

“It is rare for a group to make its debut [in Japan] and proceed with a tour concert simultaneously,” said the agency.

“It proves that fans in Japan welcome the arrival of the group, and that the group is gearing up to become the leader of the next generation K-pop scene.”

B.A.P just performed in Japan in June as part of its Pacific tour, a concert series that was so popular that fans crashed the ticketing company’s servers, said the agency.
