The "and more" does not include the US. :'(

I doubt it will include Europe either... but I'm wondering more about whether the album will be a compilation or not.

Though I have to admit I'm looking forward to the next year. I'm hoping for even more Arashi XD.

"And more" is probably just more Tokyo Dome, Sapporo Dome etc. concerts. Asian artists in general don't really tour in Europe, or Europe = Paris :/

I hope there's going to be many TV show specials next year :D

That's what I expect... but even if they go to Paris, I'd try to get there... even if it means more than a week of bed rest afterwards. It's closer than Japan in any case XD. But I doubt they'll come to Europe at all.

I think the "and more" may include Hawaii, but that will be the only non-Japanese location, so I'm also mainly hoping for TV shows.

I wish they would try to go abroad. I´m sure they are unaware of the many fans they have out of Japan.
It´s a pity that it looks like there won´t be anything in May, because I am going to Japan. (At least I should be able to buy merchandising...)

It would even be cool if you could buy digital tickets to a live stream version of the concert. It wouldn't be the same, but I'd still be grateful.

This is probably just my paranoia talking, but does any of this feel strangely “final?” Like this may be the beginning of the end for Arashi? I would hope not because they still seem to to be at the top of their game, and I’m sure they still make Johhny’s a ton of money, but I’ve just had this weird feeling in the pit of my stomach the past few days. Tell me I’m nuts LoL

I hope that's just paranoia. As far as I can tell each of their anniversaries so far has given them more fans (though that's just from the livejournal entries around those times as I didn't know about them before last year) and I hope this one will do the same.

I'm really not ready to let them go yet XD

It doesn't feel "final" to me. I actually hadn't even thought about that. Let's hope it's just paranoia :D

I'm sure many fans have felt the same way as you in the past. There have been several occasions when the fans thought Arashi was "ending" and they obviously haven't. I guess it's because the guys have done a lot of things for their fans and for the community that make it feel like a final good-bye. I do think Arashi is at the top of their game, and they would not stop performing or making music when they are going so strong. Personally, I think they hit that already, and it was during the 2008-2010 era, but that's just me. All of their singles and albums have hit the top-sellers and top-rated lists. So, they are no where near done. Let's hope not because I've approached my third year as an Arashian and I have bad timing when it comes to falling in love with something and it comes to an end within a year. I need to be an Arashian for much longer before they finish. At least for 5 years. I would like to hear the guys' thoughts about when and how they predict their end will come. I know the answers will be very vague but mostly because they are saying it won't happen anytime soon. They'll just circle the point for a while.

I am really interested in going to this but obviously money and ability to get a ticket is standing in my way.
Dreaming of flying to Japan during my Christmas break and some how getting a ticket~~

Well, the members have said several times that they want to be Arashi forever and that they want to keep going, and as long as they keep selling the company will keep supporting them. I'm sure that even if they do 18+ concerts they will sell every ticket so I'm not worried about that for now.

I hope that 'and more' schedule will be include more place like small city. Or something like 'mens only', 'elder only', etc. It will be fun I think.

And I hope too about special TV variety about Arashi :D

How crazy, 20 years approaching already!! I've loved Arashi for 14 of their 20, I'm so honored to be one of their fans. I'm so proud of them!!
Hopefully the few who have the filling of it being their "final" are just being paranoid. When watching them, I never get the indication or feeling that they are going to end Arashi anytime soon, far from it. They love each other and enjoy being with each other and their jobs way too much I believe or feel. I would also think that when or if their "final" days do come, it will be a huge deal and we, the fans will be well informed of it. So let us just celebrate their 20 years happily!!
