posted on by Egan Loo
The official website for Yoshiki Fukuyama, the singing voice of Macross 7's Basara Nekki, announced on May 26 the Macross 25th Anniversary Live Concert: Minmay Meets Fire Bomber event. The August 18 event will feature Mari Iijima (Lynn Minmay from the first Macross series), Fukuyama, Chie Kajiura (Macross 7's Mylene Jenius), and the debut of the heroine for the upcoming new Macross project. The new project's trailer will also be screened. Macross, a science fiction franchise that features transforming aerospace fighters, love triangles, and singers of various musical styles, held a similar concert for its 15th anniversary in 1997.
The concert will be held at Tokyo's Nippon Seinenkan Grand Hall at 6:00 p.m. (with doors opening at 5:00 p.m.) The admission price is 6,500 yen (about US$53) per assigned seat, and includes a bonus present for attendees. Tickets go on sale for Fukuyama's fan club members from June 1 to June 14. General tickets sales begin June 9 at various ticket outlets.
The Victor Entertainment music label selected the heroine of the new Macross project in its Vocal & Voice Audition in April. Satelight had previously revealed that the new project will be a television series.
