EXILE's ATSUSHI will not be participating in EXILE TRIBE's dome tour 'EXILE TRIBE PERFECT YEAR LIVE TOUR: TOWER OF WISH 2014', which starts this fall.
ATSUSHI explained, "In order to make EXILE shine more than ever and to evolve EXILE TRIBE as a whole, I want to see EXILE and EXILE TRIBE objectively." He continued, "By viewing from a fans' point of view, which is different from the scenery seen on stage, I believe that I will be able to discover things I haven't seen or noticed as well as the potential of a new EXILE." He further added, "It may be selfish, but I am thinking about this in a very positive way."
While he will not be participating in this year's EXILE TRIBE tour, ATSUSHI will continue to be involved in EXILE's releases and TV and radio program appearances.
