UPDATED 3/8/2012: Congrats to the winner, JamesY!
The previous lead singer of J-Pop band KAT-TUN, Jin Akanishi has recently risen into global stardom as a solo artist. This week, Akanishi is gearing up for the release of his debut U.S. album, JAPONICANA on March 6th by embarking on a five-city North American tour.
Jin Akanishi is a top selling multi-talented entertainer with musicians, vocalists, actors and entertainers in Japan. As the former lead vocalist in KAT-TUN, Jin established numerous records for the popular group. Their 11 CD singles, 4 CD albums, and 7 DVDs all reached #1 on the Japanese National Charts, and in 2009, KAT-TUN became the first artists ever to perform ten consecutive days at Tokyo Dome Stadium – one of the largest and most prestigious venues in Japan.
In 2009, Jin Akanishi began his activities as a solo artist and climbed to #1 in the Japanese National charts with his first single, which was also the theme track for the movie Bandage, in which he played the starring role. The single was certified Platinum. Jin delivered 32 solo shows titled, “Akanishi Jin Star Live You & Jin,” which led to his first US tour in 2010, selling out 2,000- to 2,500-seat venues in Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles, New York and San Francisco – without a US release or support from a record company.
After the success of “You & Jin U.S.A.,” Jin Akanishi officially announced he would pursue a solo career, seeking to expand his activities across the world. His first Japan solo tour in 2011 – staged and produced by JIN himself – became sensational news when he sold 170,000 tickets in just one week.
