Nogizaka46 wraps up 2016 in majestic fashion!

Christmas came early for Nogizaka46 fans, with a breath-taking live to end a spectacular 2016. A sold-out crowd at Nippon Budokan was expected for this top idol group who co-dominated the 2016’s Oricon Chart single rankings alongside AKB48!

We had the wonderful opportunity to fly to Japan to witness this first hand, and only one word could describe this experience: Majestic! From the OVERTURE to the encore, fans were ecstatic, and the members of Nogizaka46 performed with their all, combined into a synchronised harmony that is out of this world!

At certain parts of the concert, fans became united as one with synchronised colour lightsticks, as well as fan chants in the performances. From our point of view, the level of unity between the fans as well as the members were almost indescribable as we have seen nothing like this in any of the concerts in Singapore so far!

In addition to the song performances, MCs also played a major role, with the return of the live imagination performance, famously known as “Mousou Request” to Nogizaka46 fans. In this segment, Hori Miona became the winner after her mousou request of bringing her ideal guy to Finland, which met with much cheers from the fans at every corner of Budokan.
