This isn’t precisely gaming or anime news, but I’m a fan of Hatsune Miku, and I’m the editor-in-chief here, so I’m writing it anyway; the vocaloid pop idol, Hatsune Miku, is going to open Lady Gaga concerts in the US.
Hatsune Miku has collaborated with other (real) musicians in the past, and there have been Hatsune Miku concerts in the past, but this is in a different league entirely. Lady Gaga is a global superstar, and I think it says a lot about Miku’s ever-rising popularity and alternative-but-pop style of music that the Lady herself would select Miku to open her concert.
If you happen to be in the US and want to watch the concert, below are the dates and locations where you’ll see Miku perform. And yes, I would prefer seeing Miku at this concert than Lady Gaga herself. She’s less of a robot.
