i dance therefore i am free


Shori x Sou

Sexy Zone’s „Sexy Zone Presents Sexy Tour 2017~STAGE~“ is about to start. Before the first concert day of the tour, Sato Shori and Matsushima Sou are going to have a discussion!

Shori: Although Sou is relatively stubborn, at our meetings he never told us his opinions. Afterwards he was telling it to me. These times he tells us his opinion. I was surprised at how that suddenly changed (laughing).
Sou: Ahahaha (laughing). I… guess so.
Shori: But I think that’s fine. You should be able to say what you want to say.
Sou: Since I felt like a Johnny’s fan poser I was wondering if my opinion will be accepted… I was afraid of that but I changed my mind about not wanting to tell anything. Even so there are still things that I don’t tell. Shori’s style of telling his opinion didn’t change at all (laughing).
Shori: No, it’s important to reflect the fans’ feelings in your opinions. For our 5th anniversary tour we won’t forget our „this is Sexy Zone“ identity. As we’re becoming adults, we have made it to five years and our „identity“ is getting mixed but I hope everyone will want to watch our concerts!
Sou: People who have been fans from a long time ago and also people who have become fans recently, everyone can enjoy it.
Shori: We will also do some nostalgic songs~
Sou: We will do it~!
Shori: To commemorate our 5th anniversary, we want you to listen to it~ since we have carefully picked and chosen the songs.

On this tour, what kind of charms will you show us?

Sou: When I was at Shori’s solo concert last year, I thought „this is Sato Shori“. I’m looking forward to that Shori when we’re together as five.
Shori: Doing a solo or doing it together, I don’t think it changes my awareness. Even while I’m together as five, I’ll do it as I please (laughing).
Sou: Oh well (laughing). Your singing power is steadily improving and recently you also concentrate on your dancing. I’m really looking forward to Shori’s dancing.
Shori: Surely, I’m changing my dancing. Rather than dancing how I’m ordered to, I want to dance spontaneously from now on! I think that’s what I’m feeling right now.
Sou: I think everyone will see an even cooler Shori than before. I’m also excited to see a new face on Shori.
Shori: OK (laughing). I’m looking forward to Sou’s dancing too. Since Sou is Sexy Zone’s best dancer. It’s difficult to exceed that expectation but since he’s a person who can do it, it’ll be possible.
Sou: Thank you~
Shori: When Sou dances it looks like he feels the music with his body. I like that kind of dancing.
Sou: I enjoy dancing myself so I hope that I am able to convey that to everyone this tour.
Shori: For the goods, Sou also designed something.
Sou: Yes, I was asked to do an illustration (laughing). I desperately thought of a new character and drew it!
Shori: This tour will be a mix of five years with Sexy Zone history and the new Sexy Zone.
Sou: Please look forward to it!
