Over 1,000 fans joined ARASHI members in Singapore at the event, where two special fan zones were added to the venue to bring fans closer to their idols. As a goodwill gesture to welcome ARASHI into Singapore, ARASHI members were presented with Merlion plushies, as well as orchid bouquets. During the event, ARASHI expressed their gratitude to the fans from both Japan and overseas for their support over the past 20 years. 

On their new music video “Turning Up”, Jun Matsumoto shared that the group had decided to make their music available on music streaming services so that fans can continue to enjoy their music whenever they want to, even after the group goes on hiatus.
