The future of live music is here, and she’s just warming up! Hatsune Miku is making her way to the Wang Theatre in Boston on Thursday, May 9th!
Put simply, Hatsune Miku is a music software that rose to fame by enabling people to make their computer sing through encoded melodies and lyrics. From there, she gained much popularity as a character, eventually branching out into fields such as merchandise, video games, live events, and more.
Furthermore, the Hatsune Miku Expo is a world concert tour that is annually organized by Crypton Future Media. Each year, the convention brings along a variety of sub-events, including exhibits, workshops, and club events where fans can meet up and bond over the creative culture surrounding Hatsune Miku.
Internationally, she has gained over 2.5M followers on Facebook, and with a repertoire entirely originating from individual creators, she is considered the very first “crowd-created virtual talent.” Although she is technically a virtual persona, she still continues to fill arenas while teaming up with the biggest names in the music industry, like Pharell Williams and Lady Gaga.
For the performance, Miku is limited to a transparent screen in the center of the stage - but a high-octane light show will be implemented to spread her energy to the audience, creating a Hyper Reality Show.
“Seeing these tunes performed is a full-throttle experience. Accompanied by four human musicians, Miku marches through J-pop, dance, and nu-metal, bringing out other virtual idols as her special guests,” The Guardian shares.
VIP packages will also be available for the convention with the following special inclusions:
Early venue entry
One incredible top-price general admission ticket
Collectible HATSUNE MIKU EXPO Pass to commemorate your experience
HATSUNE MIKU EXPO Themed Merchandise Created Exclusively for VIP
