Due to his sudden illness, Tsuyoshi had already skipped two live TV performances i.e. "TV Tokyo Ongakusai 2017" on 28 June and "THE MUSIC DAY ~ Negai ga kanau natsu ~" on 1 July. TOKIO's Nagase Tomoya had stood in for him for the earlier programme while Arashi's Aiba Masaki and Matsumoto Jun appeared in his place for the latter.
