Zeng YuJia, who is not a full member but is from Sichuan where the earthquake took place, joined everyone on the stage and performed the song as its centre.

SNH48 had held their first janken competiionbefore the show and the winner was Chen GuanHui (runner up was Dai Meng), GuanHui got to perform the first song, [Chance no Junban] as the centre.
Dai Meng, who has a nickname of “Diamond” centred [Oogoe Diamond].

Votes were held for members to perform two unit songs at the concert: [Hatsukoi Dorobou] and [Oshibe to Meshibe to Yoru no Chouchou]. [Hatsukoi Dorobou] was won by Tang Min, Zhao JiaMin, and Xu ChenChen. [Oshibe to Meshibe to Yoru no Chouchou] was won by Qiu XinYi and Mo Han.

The music video for the SNH48 version of [Sakura no ki ni Narou] was also revealed during their performance of the song.

The day before the show, it was announced Zhao JiaMin had injured her waist during practice and those at the hospital advised she refrain from dancing or any energetic activity. It was later that day announced that after much tearful convincing and insistence from JiaMin and the management receiving the OK from doctors to let her perform one song, that she would be able to perform [Hatsukoi Dorobou] as a thank you gift to fans for their support and well wishes. As fans had organized, before she went on stage, throughout the song, and after performing there was an incredible “Savoki call” (Savoki being JiaMin’s nickname).

Tang Min, the group’s centre along with Zhao JiaMin, felt unwell throughout the show and almost fainted many times backstage but insisted on performing (however, she was absent during [RIVER] to rest). After the show she was found laying on the ground and not breathing well and was rushed to the hospital, she has since recovered.

Following [Hikoukigumo], concurrent members Miyazawa Sae (also in Team K) and Suzuki Mariya (also in Team A), joined the members on stage to give a speech, trying very hard to speak in Mandarin which was met by affectionate laughs and cheers from the crowd. They did not perform as they still haven’t received their work permits, but got to yell the “1! 2! 3! 4!” of [Heavy Rotation] before leaving the stage.
