I know, I know. "Why does this have an entry?" Summary of Johnny's World was actually a very special set of concerts. It ran from 2004 to 2005, I believe, and starred NEWS, KAT-TUN, and various Johnny's Juniors acts. With that to get your attention...The Main Point of Summary
The concert kind of served to summarize the more popular works of Johnnys groups. Dai-senpai, SMAP, TOKIO, V6, Kinki Kids, Arashi, and Tackey and Tsubasa singles were covered by recently formed groups and juniors. It wasn't just limited to honoring the history of Johnnys. The headlining acts of the concerts got to showcase their own talents, sing their own popular songs, and provide fans with much loved fanservice. I mean... the BFFs of Yamapi and Bakanishi. On stage. Together. LOVE. Right?Headliners
The first Summary concert starred NEWS with KAT-TUN and Ya-ya-yah. The second starred NEWS and Ya-ya-yah. And I believe one more run was made with Ya-ya-yah and other popular junior groups headlining. Junior groups that I know have been featured in it are Ya-ya-yah, ABC, J.J. express, and the ever general Junior Boys.The DVD
Summary of Johnny's World 2004 was released on DVD on April 20, 2005. This is the show starring NEWS featuring KAT-TUN and Ya-ya-yah. It was filmed at Harajuku Big Top in front of a live audience in August of 2004. Two different versions were released - a limited and regular edition. The regular edition is still available on most online stores for you to buy and it really is worth it! The limited edition came with a wonderful backstage doc full of laughs and inter-group minglings.
The concert as well as the backstage doc have been subbed and are up for you to nab around on different comms and fansites.
