THE FUTURE IS HERE!
Hatsune Miku is not just any pop star. In her native Japan, she has sold a staggering amount of records, been featured in video games, manga, cosplay and holds the distinction of having been sent to space in a rocket, twice. But just what is it about this 16-year-old star with two shining turquoise pigtails and a never-ending wardrobe?
Well, she's not exactly real. Presented to audiences since 2009 as a high-tech and awe-inspiring hologram, Hatsune Miku started life as the creation of Crypton Future Media, as the face of a music development software, where users can explore the possibilities of making music with via a synthesized human voice. From there, her popularity boomed, making her much more than a spokesperson. Crypton called her Hatsune Miku, which translates as 'First sound from the future' and she certainly is a trailblazer, playing concerts worldwide and even opening for Lady Gaga's Art Rave Tour. There is nothing like her, and definitely nothing like seeing her live. Make sure you don't miss tickets for this incredible tour, as part of the biggest Hatsune Miku Expo yet!
