Performing a concert at Tokyo Dome has long been AKB48's dream, with their official blog title meaning "The Path to Tokyo Dome". 1830m is the distance between their theatre in Akihabara and Tokyo Dome, so reflects the journey they have taken to reach their goal.

[1830m] will be released on August 15th on 2xCD + DVD. It will feature 30 tracks including:

These songs are a mix of single tracks, theatre edition tracks, Zenza girls songs, and the song from the movie [Documentary of AKB48: Show Must Go On]. This means there is a possibility of up to 13 new songs. Akimoto Yasushi previously stated on NHK Radio that there may be 12 new songs, and has mentioned on Google+ that he was working on a solo song for Shinoda Mariko for this album.

As per the single releases, the Theatre Edition of the album also includes a handshake ticket. The novelty of the three handshake events associated with this album is that there is also the possibility of winning a 2-shot photo of yourself and the member you have a ticket to.
