  • Rain Invited to Perform at Manchester United`s Game
  • [2005-06-27]
  • Singer Rain has been invited to perform at the pre-match show of the game between the British premier league team Manchester United and Japan`s Kashima Antlers on July 28 at 7 p.m. at the Tokyo Yoyoki National Stadium. Some 50,000 spectators are expected to attend the match.

    Manchester United, which comprises some of the world`s top players such as Cristiano Ronaldo and Wayne Rooney, recently came into the spotlight when Korean soccer star Park Ji-sung joined the team. Rain is likely to meet with Park at the match.

    Both the match and the pre-match show will be broadcast live throughout Japan by Fuji TV. The match is expected to record high viewer ratings as Manchester United created a sensation during its previous visit to Japan.

    "It is quite rare for Manchester United to hold pre-match shows at goodwill matches. Many top Japanese artists expressed their willingness to perform at the match, but the players and the team`s senior officials chose Rain," said JYP Entertainment, Rain`s agency.

    Rain said he is honored to have the opportunity to perform at the match of Manchester United, as he is a fan of the team, and will do his best to stage a superb performance that will be broadcast to Japan and Europe.

    The singer will hold his first solo concert in Japan, entitled `Rain Day In Japan,` on July 30-31 at the Tokyo International Forum and Aug. 3-4 at the Osaka Pension Hall.
