Singapore fans, rejoice!
Yesterday morning, the Singapore Toy, Games and Comic Convention(STGCC for short), updated their website with an AKB48 banner with the words "MEET AKB48, JAPAN'S LEADING IDOL GIRL GROUP".
Commence fan spazzing now. Yes, I literally held my breath when I saw the news when I was in tutorial class.
Here are the details known so far about the event:
Source: STGCC Website
Look out for AKB48’s appearance (up to 5 girls) at STGCC main stage on Friday (10 Dec 2010).
For die-hard fans, be mesmerised by 12 – 16 girls at their meet the fan session on Saturday (11 Dec 2010).
Duration: up to 1.5 hours
Cost: S$30.00 (limited seats available, includes same day access to STGCC exhibition).
Information on ticketing will be released soon.
The stage appearance intrigues me, what will they do? MCs, perform a couple of songs perhaps? And the Meet the Fans Session, what does it entail? High-touch? Handshake? Possibly even autographs!!?? *faints*
And yeah, I noticed in particular the 5 girls on Friday then 12-16 girls on Saturday. It actually can imply much(like they want to send some front girls, but these girls are busy on the Friday, so they send 5 others first, then the rest join in by Saturday). Still, I don't want to read too much into the numbers yet.
This is seriously, the best. Obviously, there wasn't going to be any handshake or autograph session for the AFA live, but we got a concert, and that's already pretty awesome. Now we get both? Damn straight!
Back from fangirling, the general vibe I'm getting is that STGCC is planning this well. Besides having the news up very much in advance, they have a proper banner for it on their website(Beginner promo pic, no less), and an actual introductory media writeup done very nicely.
Now we just wait for the ticketing to be up!
UPDATE: AKB48 apparently has Beginner handshake event scheduled for the 11th. Handshake events are attended by all members of AKB48. How this will work, I have no idea.
