Yes I know, it’s almost a year late for my report (and the Blu-ray’s already out). But it’s my first trip to watch Perfume in Japan with other Singaporeans! Of course, meeting worldwide WPTA fans as well.
Oh, and if you’re -still- waiting for my JPN Tour report, I’ve mostly forgotten all the emcee segments from then. Didn’t take any photos either. By and large, it was very similar to the JPN Tour DVD’s experience. I’ll probably do a short post using screencaps from the DVD footage and google maps photos, but we’ll see.No comments
Just having experienced two major Japanese concerts recently, it made me look back as to how successful the past solo and mixed concerts are. And frankly, it isn’t exactly good. Why? Well, here’s the basic structure as to how concerts are brought over to fans typically.No comments
Aside from Anison, ask any teenager in the 90s and early 2000s and they will tell you that Japanese Pop will most likely have a place in their music library. One of the biggest music companies in Japan, Avex Trax used to retail tons of CDs produced and marketed by their Taiwan and Hong Kong counterparts in Singapore. Sadly, the J-pop flame died right before the K-pop fever took over.
But with the resurgence of Japanese music, more and more Japanese performers and artistes look towards Singapore as a place to perform, more than ever before. And with that, Avex decided to have Singapore as one of the venues to hold their Summer concert “a-nation” in October later this year.
At press time (okay this is just a blog, but hey, it means at the moment this article is published) the performers list has yet to be revealed. Hence, here are my predictions on the artist list as well as the ticket pricing tiers.

Earlier this week, Amuse Asia’s facebook page posted something very interesting to Anisong fans in Singapore and Southeast Asia. Here’s an excerpt of the post:2 comments
I suppose you can already guess what this is going to be about! As you have probably heard, the next Mikupa will be held in Singapore, at the Anime Festival Asia 11, on the quirky date of 11.11.11, Friday night. If the Sapporo concert was anything to go by, we’d be getting the magical glass screen and also an exciting lineup of new songs by popular producers. I do hope they play some old favorites too, though!
One of the things to look forward to is definitely the 39’s, the live band who played for the previous Vocaloid concerts. I really enjoy their live arranges of classic songs, and damn, their skill level is really something to behold! Also, I wonder if we’ll see any music producers being invited, too.2 comments
Ume here! It’s been a while since I’ve last updated, university has just started for me so I’ve been busy.
If you remember the posts from several months back, where I raved deliriously about Vocaloid Night , you might guess my little routine of checking into the V_N Ustream lives every third Wednesday of the month, and also visiting mogra’s stream once in a while. I’ve developed quite the appetite for vocaloid and anisong-based dance music!
And here comes ZANEEDS, back to Singapore! They’ve had done a few DJ lives at conventions in other countries (Most recently at Anime Expo), and having heard DJ Torinos’s mixes from their website, I decided that I really wanted to hear them DJ live.
The nice thing about ZANEEDS is that they pick songs that they feel best fit the country, or the audience tastes. This makes them very suited for performances overseas, as they can deliver a general sort of all-purpose fun mix most Vocaloid fans can identify with.
So when I heard the news that STGCC would be inviting ZANEEDS for their own Vocaloid DJ night, I could hardly contain my excitement! I had the lightsticks left over from Miku Party, and they were certainly more than enough ammunition for the very first Vocaloid DJ set to be held in Singapore.3 comments
