Summary 2013...?

I've been basically writhing in my seat wondering when Summary will be announced (isn't it late??) and finally decided to look around the internet for any indication that would soothe my fears and prove that this year, at the very least, Summary is indeed happening. I glanced at the Tokyo Dome City Hall events page for August and was slightly comforted to find that there is a mysterious something reserving the space but Tokyo Dome City Hall can't announce what. That sounds like Johnny's to me... but to feel safes and surer, I decided to do a google search about it hoping to hit on some rumour blogs. I managed to find two (albeit very late... the posts were made in late May). They both contained essentially the same information, leaked by Kento and Fuma at the May 19th show of Johnny's Livehouse Ginza at Theatre Crea, where apparently Kento and Fuma were the guests. The information is:

①TDC Hallで開催。(例年通り。東京以外の情報は今のところない)
②サマリーという名称ではなくなり、コンサートらしい。
③出演者はセクゾとエビとJr.(昨年同様)
④公演はデビュー組のソロにそれぞれJr.がちょっとずつ付く=健人+Jr.何人か。という感じらしい。

As translated by me:
① It will be held at Tokyo Dome City Hall.(Same as every year. Right now, there's no information about anywhere but Tokyo)
② The name "Summary" will cease to exist and it will be like a concert.
③ The performers will be Sexy Zone, ABC-Z, and Juniors.(Same as last year.)
④ The performance will be solos of the members of the debuted groups plus a few juniors each = Kento + some number of juniors, or that sort of thing, it seems.

I'm not sure how accurate this is. The blurb I translated comes from this blog, but very similar information is available here. I don't really know what to think of this... clearly ① and ③ sound good to me, but I'm really not sure what to make of ② and ④. ② is really perplexing to me; Johnny's has been doing Summary for so many years now... why change it?? Summary is like an institution in Johnny's, and I don't want to see it "cease to exist." The Japanese なくなる seems a bit extreme to me, it can mean "disappear" or "die" (it's a polite, euphemistic way to say someone died, like "passed away," and it can also mean disappear as in "go extinct"...), but the other site doesn't put it much more lightly; they say "サマリーと違う。"("different from Summary") bolded quite emphatically. I also don't know what to make of the "solo" thing... I feel almost as if Johnny's is forgetting about how it succeeded (through group dynamics) and is trying to be more like K-pop or AKB48 now.

But hey, this is all just rumours, so... here's to hoping it's completely false. (>___<)
