It’s looking like Hatsune Miku Expo 2020 might become “Miku Expo 2021” at the rate things are progressing. The Los Angeles show, which had already been rescheduled to October 18th at the Shrine Auditorium, appears to have been rescheduled once again to April 13th, 2021. While not yet announced on any official Hatsune Miku social media outlets, the new date is now confirmed on the AXS ticketing site, as well as in emails sent to ticket buyers.

It is unknown at this time if the other event locations will follow with similar delays, or if they will remain unchanged. We’ll be sure to post about it if anything else changes.

If you already purchased tickets for Los Angeles, you should have received an email about the rescheduled event date. If you haven’t purchased yet, tickets are still available.

Goodsmile Racing has revealed the Haregi version of the 2020 Racing Miku to cheer on the team for the 2020 10 Hours of Suzuka in August. Illustrated by LEN[A-7], Racing Miku is sporting the usual pink Haregi with the cherry blossoms in the background.

Unfortunately, the 10 Hours of Suzuka will be cancelled because of the COVID-19 pandemic. As most of the teams that take part in it are from outside of Japan, it was inevitable that the race would get cancelled. Hopefully we’ll go back to racing soon with Super GT later in the year.

 

Until then, Stay home and Fight, GSR!
