Update with SONE PLUS+, SONE JAPAN, Naver LINE, and official website messages:

On April 21st, the members of Girls’ Generation completed their second arena tour through Japan at the Osaka Municipal Central Gymnasium. In addition to the usual performances of 29 songs from their past Korean and Japanese albums, Girls’ Generation commemorated the final concert of the arena tour by singing a brief acapella version of “Into The New World”, which was not on the concert setlist, and Taeyeon read a letter in Japanese that she had prepared in advance for the audience. The transcript of Taeyeon’s letter can be found in Soshified’s Translated Goodies Section. Finally, after the end of the concert, Girls’ Generation returned to the stage in response to calls for a second encore and gave a special performance of “Gee”.

Girls’ Generation’s second arena tour began on February 9th and reached seven cities in Japan. The tour featured 20 concerts spread throughout Kobe, Saitama, Niigata, Fukuoka, Hiroshima, Osaka, and Nagoya, with fans from Japan and all over the world in attendance forming beautiful pink oceans of lightsticks for every concert.


The members of Girls’ Generation later expressed their thanks to the their fans through SONE PLUS+ and Girls’ Generation’s official website. The photo above was posted onto SONE PLUS+ with a message:

Lastly, SONE JAPAN posted the above photo of Girls’ Generation backstage at the final concert and included a message from Girls’ Generation. The message read:

Hello everyone in SONE JAPAN.

It’s Girls’ Generation~ ^^

To all the fans who came to the tour, thank you so much!

We were able to meet you all just about every week, so it was a very happy three months.

The concert venues filled with pink penlights, handmade [cosplay] costumes and pink towels, everyone who wore the tour T-shirt and more, spending Sooyoung, Taeyeon, and Jessica’s birthdays with everyone… we will never forget any of it.

Also, after the concerts ended, the special time when we met those backstage became precious memories.  When we opened the door to the waiting room, seeing that everyone was so happy or crying made us feel that we’re loved so much that our hearts ached.  We are really~, really~ thankful for all the fans who support Girls’ Generation.

In order to be able to respond to all your cheers, we will try our best from now on, so please warmly watch over Girls’ Generation. Thank you.


Congratulations to the members of Girls’ Generation for completing their wonderful second arena tour.
