October 7th was the official premiere of the new SNH48 Team NII original stage “In the Name of Love”. Our team was on the scene on see all the excitement.
NII fans started gathering as early as 14:00 (2pm) in and out of the theater with gifts, banners, and the usual activities surrounding new stages. By 18:30 (6:30pm) a long line was already formed outside waiting to be admitted to the sold out show.
You can watch the full performance from the official SNH Youtube channel at the top of this page.
Team NII was complete with the notable exceptions of Ju JingYi and Ge JiaHui.
The overall performance was above average but only a few songs really stood out from the lot. One of them was the unit centered by Li YiTong (see below).
All in all, this was a good show that helped to bring Team NII in good graces of fans after having suffered somewhat in 2017 of lackluster stages due to too many top girls being away at the same time.
As an added bonus, STAR48 released studio versions of several of the songs from the stage on Migu Music! Below is the title track of the stage “In the Name of Love”.
