It was announced on August 1st, that NEWS 15th Anniversary LIVE 2018 "Strawberry" Bluray and DVD will go on sale on September 11th, 2019.
NEWS' first concert at Ajinomoto Stadium was jam packed with many effects that can only be done outdoors, like water canons and fireworks. It also featured a special medley that looked back on their 15 year history, and a tearful first performance of their single, "Ikiro". It's a passionate must-see concert, filled with gratitude for the fans, staff, and all people who have been involved with NEWS.
As a special feature, this release includes an interview with each member where they look back on their turning point, called "Bokutachi no, genten (Our roots)". Koyama, who experienced failure in the first concert; Kato, who continued to search for his place in NEWS; Masuda, who hid his deep feelings towards the place of his dreams, Tokyo Dome; and Tegoshi, who faces the joy and responsibility of his first time being the lead vocalist.
