After various event cancellations postponements around the world during 2020, Hatsune Miku Magical Mirai 2020 in Osaka is the next to face the heat to prevent further spread of COVID-19. Originally, ticket purchases to foreign visitors was blocked due to the virus concerns, but the current situation within Japan has forced further action by the event organizers.
An update to the official website announces that the event originally planned for August 7th~9th 2020 has now been postponed to an unknown future date. Those planning to attend are asked to please wait for future announcements regarding the new event and concert dates. Already purchased tickets will be able to carry over to the new date, and refunds are also being prepared for those no longer able or willing to attend the new event dates.
There is no word yet on postponement of the Tokyo event, which is still currently scheduled for December 18th~20th. Ticket information for this event has also not yet been announced.
