The pre-orders are open for the upcoming concert release from NEWS. They will be releasing a DVD from their comeback tour Utsukushii Koi ni Suruyo at the first venue they performed at, Chichibunomiya Rugby Stadium on August 14, 2012. It will be released on January 30th, 2013.
The release will have two versions, a limited edition and a regular edition.
The regular edition will be two discs long with the concert on the first disc. The second disc will have special footage from the surprise event they did for fans for the release of their comeback single Chankapaana.
The limited edition will be three discs long, with one of the discs having the concert itself. The second disc will have a documentary that will follow the group's comeback. Then on the third disc will be digest footage of the concerts at other venues on the tour as well as a footage of their release event for their comeback single, Chankapaana. There is also a CD that comes with this set that will have a talk between the members that lasts about thirty minutes.
While this was announced on Koyama Keiichiro's radio program a few days ago I have been waiting for it to show up on sites for pre-order in hopes of getting more information about this release. I am glad I did as all that was known before was the release date so there is definitely more than that to report about for this release.
They definitely want to make their fans poor with something different on the non-concert discs of the different versions. Of course the limited edition is probably the best to get if you are undecided and can afford to only get one version.
I am just happy they are releasing this on DVD as a NEWS fan that could not go to their comeback concerts. I really cannot wait to see this concert and see what NEWS with only four members can do.
