Title: Hideaki Takizawa's Hong Kong New Single Press Conference Admiring the Night View with Fans
Hideaki Takizawa was in Hong Kong last week to promote his new single [Venus].
Although Imai Tsubasa did not make it for the trip this time and Hideaki Takizawa's flight information to Hong Kong was kept highly secretive, there were still many fans who went to the Hong Kong airport to receive his arrival. The next day, the record company arranged for a unique meet-the-fans session on board a ship.
This meet-the-fans session was opened to 150 lucky fans, who got to enjoy the beautiful Hong Kong night scenery with Hideaki Takizawa.
Hideaki Takizawa: Hi everyone, I am Hideaki Takizawa. I am happy to meet all of you.
The Hong Kong fans gave Hideaki Takizawa a Chinese-designed robe as a first-meeting gift and Hideaki Takizawa also wore it on the spot. As for Imai Tsubasa who was not physically present there himself, he also asked after all the fans through VCR.
Imai Tsubasa: Hi everyone, I am Imai Tsubasa. Tackey & Tsubasa's new single is already released in Hong Kong.
In addition, the record company even arranged for Hideaki Takizawa fans to be televised live through phone to a TV programme in Japan, which Imai Tsubasa appeared on. It somewhat made up for Imai Tsubasa not being able to make it together with Hideaki Takizawa on this Hong Kong trip.
The new single includes Japanese, Mandarin, Thai and Korean, 4 different versions.
Hideaki Takizawa commented that the Mandarin version was indeed the hardest version. But he is very happy to be able to use this opportunity to become closer to the fans from all over Asia. He even promised the fans that he will hold a concert in Hong Kong soonest possible.
Fans: It is a promise, let's hook our fingers yo.
Hideaki Takizawa: OK! It's a promise.Yahoo Taiwan News
