Nogizaka46 vs AKB48: Graduation Concert Size


In Nogizaka46 2015 National Tour PV, captain Sakurai Reika said she wants victory, and the group almost made it, they has closed the gap to their official rival: AKB48 in 2016. In 2017, will Nogizaka46 take the Number 1 idol position from AKB48?

Let's compare Nogizaka46 to AKB48 by the size their top member s' graduation concerts in February.

AKB48 member Kojima Haruna's graduation concert will take place in Yoyogi First Gymnasium from 21 to 22 February 2017, Yoyogi First Gymnasium's capacity is 13,000.

On the hand, Nogizaka46 member Hashimoto Nanami's graduation concert will take place in Saitama Super Arena from 20 to 22 February 2017, Saitama Super Arena's capacity is 30,000.

Therefore, Nogizaka46 member Hashimoto Nanami graduation concert's maximum attendance will be 90,000 people, and AKB48 member Kojima Haruna graduation concert's maximum attendance will be 26,000 people.

Kojiharu wanted that date cause it is the nyan nyan day, and she had only that choice. So I don't think this exemple fits that much to say nogizaka is more popular than AKB.

It's not about the capacity. It's about the attendees number

We all know that 46 > 48 since a couple of years.
IF aks don't push team 8 and NGT members more then 46g will take over all the japanese market since the other groups are already tiresome to watch/follow.

While the max capacity for Nogi's concert is much bigger, we would have to see the attendance. Matsui Rena and Sae's concerts for example were held at big venues but some sections were empty and covered with tarp.

Nanamin's concert is also part of Nogizaka46's 4th Birthday live so of course it's a big event.

Well if you wanna compare why don't you see acchan graduation concert ?
