For the first time since 2011, Hatsune Miku has once again performed in the United States; this time, as the opening act for Lady Gaga’s Artpop Ball in Atlanta, Georgia.

The 3D model resembles Model 14 from Bump of Chicken’s Ray, and animations used for the songs were fairly high quality. Unlike previous concerts, there was no live band with Miku, but there where two back-up dancers on stage with her. With each of the 6 songs and time between them, the opening lasted approximately 25 minutes.

Each of the songs had a unique remix for the concert, as well as a new animation for it. The songs played are as follows:

There are still 15 concerts left, and tickets are still available for many of them.
More information will be posted as it is received.

    It’s done better than I thought!! And Miku has five songs too!! Initially I thought she will just sing 1-2 songs. It’s too bad they didn’t used the transparent screen, but overall this is not dissapointing. Quite a good performance and promotion for Miku throughout US!!

    This song is “Story Rider” why is it not on the list??

  • Lawrence Elsa

    @COSMOMAN: Literally 5 seconds ago I was informed this song was on the list, and went to add it. I thank you for re-confirming that it exists.

    Story Rider was the English version actually. Favorite of the list I’ve seen~ 😀

    @Scrap Rabbit
    Thank you for your input. I have been told that it uses the Japanese version of Miku and sings in English, but have been unable to confirm.

    I’m glad Miku was able to mix some favorite classics with new songs, and to have such a long opener! I think it was a pretty good introduction for Gaga’s fans. I’m curious to find out what the general impression is from them, and I also hope to see what Gaga has to say about Miku!

    I believe Scrap Rabbit is correct. Story Rider was originally done using Japanese Miku singing in English, but after Miku English came out the song was redone by ELEKI to use the new voicebank. I’ve listened carefully to the different versions and am certain the concert is using the newer Miku English one.
