The graduation concerts for SKE48 members Matsui Jurina and Takayanagi Akane will be held in April at Nippon Gaishi Hall.
This announcement was made on February 23 during a program that was distributed via YouTube and SHOWROOM. Takayanagi's graduation concert will be held on April 10, then Matsui's on the following day, April 11.
On her graduation concert, Takayanagi commented, "For me, this will mark the start of a new life and will serve as an omen. Even for the members, it will be their first time in a while being on stage at a big venue, and I'm sure this will be the first [concert] for some, so I hope it will once again make them feel that being an idol is fun."
Similarly, Matsui expressed, "During my 12 years as an idol, I have the biggest feeling of gratitude for my fans, so I feel very happy that we are able to hold a concert with an audience. I also feel happy that I am able to graduate with Takayanagi Akane-chan, a second generation member who has been by my side the entire time."
