AKB48 to attend Tokyo Auto Salon in Singapore
AKB48 is finally coming back to Singapore later this month!
That's right! AKB48 is the special guest of the Tokyo Auto Salon (TAS), which for the first time will set foot in Singapore. The event will be held for 3 days from 12th to 14th April (Friday to Sunday) at the Marina Bay Sands Convention Center, but AKB48 will be appearing only on the 12th and 13th (Friday and Saturday respectively).
The 16 AKB48 members that will be gracing TAS have just been announced today and they are:
The current schedule for AKB48 is a Meet & Greet Session on both Friday and Saturday, and additionally there will be a 1 hour live performance on Saturday. All AKB48 events will be at the Performance Stage at Tokyo Auto Salon Singapore 2013. Please note that the organiser reserves the right to change the schedule.
12 April 2013
Meet & Greet Session: 3:15PM
13 April 2013
Meet & Greet Session: 4:30PM
One Hour "Live" Performance: 6:00PM
The lack of AKB48 Senbatsu members is surprising considering that this is quite a big event. But if I were you, I would still go because it's clear that they won't be coming to Singapore regularly like they previously did. The last AKB48 Singapore Theater Live was on 17 February 2012, more than a year ago. This could very well be AKB48's last time in Singapore for this year. Don't miss this chance to seem them again, even if your favourite members aren't coming!
Online ticketing for TAS is available HERE, but will close on 8th April. The TAS ticket is all that you need to attend all of AKB48's events, no special tickets required. Additionally if you order your tickets online, you can redeem them for limited Moshpit passes at the redemption booth on a first-come, first-serve basis. Tickets are priced at $25 per day, and $70 for a 3 Day Pass. Order them now or you will miss out on the Moshpit passes! But no worries if you can't, tickets are still available for sale on the day itself.
