Japanese virtual idol sensation Hatsune Miku will bring her world concert tour, MIKU EXPO, to North America next spring.
The songstress will kick off the tour with her first Canadian concert in four years at the Thunderbird Arena in Vancouver on April 4 and hit California, Dallas, Atlanta, Washington, New Jersey, Boston and Chicago before returning to Canada for the final performance at the Coca-Cola Coliseum in Toronto.
Since making its debut in Jakarta, Indonesia, five years ago, MIKU EXPO has drawn over 170,000 fans in 63 concerts across 27 cities around the world. The blue-haired vocaloid’s state-of-the-art shows — set to include fan favorites to the latest hits — are known for their cutting-edge 3D graphics and computer-generated vocal technology in which she will even sing and speak to her fans in the local language of the country she is performing in.
Along with the concert, numerous events tailored to suit the location and its fans are being planned, including workshops and fan art exhibitions by Japanese and local artists. Tickets are set to go on sale Friday (Dec. 6) JST.
