posted on by Jennifer Sherman
Concert film screened in U.S. on November 10 & in other countries in October, November

The distribution company Live Viewing Japan will stage a theatrical simulcast of the "Hatsune Miku Live Party 2011 39's LIVE in SAPPORO" virtual idol concert video in nine major U.S. cities on November 10 at 7:00 p.m. (local time). The original Vocaloid idol performance event, organized by 5pb, took place in northern Japan in August. This multi-country concert screening celebrates the November 16 Japanese release of the "Hatsune Miku Live Party 2011" Blu-ray/DVD/CD package. The concert will screen in select theaters in the following cities:

Baltimore, MD
Boston, MA
Chicago, IL
Houston, TX
Los Angeles, CA
New York, NY
Orange, CA
San Francisco, CA
Seattle, WA

Locations outside the United States will also host screenings of the concert film including Bangkok, Thailand (SF World Cinema) on October 30, Sao Paolo, Brazil (UCI Cinemas Jardim Sul) on November 5, and Paris, France (CGR Torcy) on November 9.

The "Hatsune Miku Live Party 2011" Blu-ray/DVD/CD bundle will include a recording of a Hatsune Miku concert that took place in Tokyo on May 9 as well as the Sapporo concert event that took place on August 16 - 17. The retail price of the package is 7,770 yen (about US$100).

Hatsune Miku performed a sold-out multi-projector concert this year at Anime Expo in Los Angeles on July 2, which is also receiving a Blu-ray, DVD, and CD release at the end of the year. The event was based on the "Miku no Nichi Kanshasai 39's Giving Day" concert in 2010, Hatsune Miku's first solo concert. The virtual idol also appeared "live" in concert in Japan, the United States, and other countries via a traditional screen in 2009.

Update: More information will be posted on Live Viewing Japan's website and Facebook page, including the latest list of theaters.

Update 2: The tickets are already on sale now.
