ARASHI is a five-member idol group from Japan.

Since their debut in 1999, they have sold over 54 million copies of albums, singles, and videos in both Asia and beyond.

Celebration of 20th anniversary

On Nov. 3, 2019, ARASHI released their first digital single "Turning Up" in celebration of their 20th anniversary.

In addition to making their music available for streaming and download for the first time, the band also opened official social media accounts on Instagram, TikTok, Twitter and Facebook.

JET STORM promotional tour

On Nov. 8, the band announced that they would be holding a promotional tour - "JET STORM" - in Jakarta, Singapore, Bangkok, and Taipei from Nov. 10 - 11, 2019.

The promotional tour comprises a fan meet/press conference in each country, with Singapore's event falling on Nov. 10, 2019.

This might be a good chance for Singaporean fans to meet ARASHI before their group activities pause from Dec 31, 2020.

However, registration for the session has already closed, although well-informed fans will nonetheless know where to go.

Here's a short video of the band throughout the years:
