K-pop boy band FT Island wrapped up its Japanese tour successfully with a show in Yokohama Arena in Japan on Monday.

The eight concerts in five cities of the group’s tour sold out proving its popularity there, the group’s agency said.

In the last concert, the members performed 21 songs, including “Be Free,” “Time To,” and “Beloved.”

The band also played “To the Light,” “Fish,” and “Tornado” for the first time onstage. Those songs are all from its 14th single, which dominated the Japanese music charts when it was released on Oct. 15.

A rock version of member Lee Hongki’s own song “Memory” and its guitarist Song Seung-hyun’s voice in the intro of “MADLY” were unusual points in the concert.

FT Island will hold its first Europe-Latin America tour starting in Paris, France, on Jan. 16. Other dates include Sao Paulo, Brazil, on Jan. 19, Rio de Janeiro on Jan. 21, Santiago, Chile, on Jan. 23 and Mexico City on Jan. 25.
