Canada Gets Its First Vocaloid Concert


Vocaloid has a crazy following. I’m part of it; listening to the songs, learning dances, probably cosplaying. etc. Many have been witness to Vocaloid concerts. Many would like to see one, but feel that Japan is a bit of a trek. Well, fear not Canada! For this August we will have our own Vocaloid concert in Toronto.

Fan Expo will be running the event on August 25th at 4pm at the Genesis Theater, inside the Metro Toronto Convention Center. The show being preformed will be Hatsune Miku Live Party 2013  which will feature Hatsune Miku, Kagamine, Rin & Len, Megurine Luka, MEIKO and KAITO.

Tickets are available for $10 each plus a $2 service fee. You are not required to have a Fan Expo pass in order to attend the concert. So, if you can’t afford Fan Expo, but think that a $12 Vocaloid concert sounds like a good deal then you can still manage to go.

    This will be a fun event, and I wish I lived close enough to attend, but just so people don’t get the wrong idea and end up disappointed, I should point out that this is not really a live Miku concert. It’s a DVD screening in movie theatre of a 90-minute edited version of a concert from March 9. Still, it is the first official Miku even in Canada, and probably as close as we’ll get to a real concert for quite a while.

    • I just saw the Fine Bros doing Elders React to this concerts and they couldn’t even comprehend why anyone would go to a concert like this if no one was actually there. Still, it would be cool to go to one of those events.

        Ah yes, the oft-heard question, “who would pay to see something that is just a projection?”

        Gee, anybody who has ever paid to see a movie! An even better comparison would be Rocky Horror Picture Show.

          This was exactly my thought as well. Many people pay to see things projected onto a screen. At least with these concerts there’s still a live band.

      I would have made note of this had the info been on the FanExpo website. They, however, never outright state that. I had to dig through Google a bit to find a single site that said that.
