On February 18, Sakurai Sho appeared on TBS' variety program 'Sakurai Ariyoshi THE Yakai' where he briefly talked about how things have been going after Arashi went on hiatus.
While talking with Ishibashi Takaaki of Tunnels, Sakurai revealed, "We went on hiatus after our concert on December 31. Things are fine now, but for about 20 days, I dreamt about Arashi everyday."
Ishibashi asked, "What kind of dreams?" to which Sakurai responded, "In some dreams, we held concerts. There was one where Ninomiya, Aiba and I were at some kind of inn. I wondered, 'Why am I in a triple room?' then we started talking about how 'Matsujun is in a single room, and it's huge. Why does only Matsujun have a big room?!'"
