Hatsune Miku fans in Hong Kong and Taiwan are in for a treat; Sega announced today that the Vocaloid star will be going on tour in those locations next.

The tour – entitled Hatsune Miku Hong Kong & Taiwan First Concert “Mikupa” in English – will be held in October of this year, as part of the virtual idol’s 5th anniversary celebrations.

This is the first time Sega has held a Hatsune Miku concert – which has numerous projectors focusing light on a mostly-transparent glass screen to make the virtual idol pop out like a 3D hologram (refer to the embedded video below) – in Hong Kong and Taiwan. Although thus far, fans over there have been able to catch Miku no Hi: Dai Kanshasai (March 2012) and July 2011’s Sapporo Mikupa concerts “live” through proxy viewing sessions held in cinemas.

Apart from Japan, Sega has also held Hatsune Miku concerts in Los Angeles, USA (July 2011’s Mikunopolis) and here in Singapore (November 2011’s Mikupa). The Hong Kong & Taiwan tour will be Miku’s third overseas performance.

Each location will see two shows held on a single day.

The Hong Kong performances will be held at the KITEC Star Hall on October 2 (Tuesday), at 3PM and 8PM local time respectively, while the Taiwan concerts will take place October 6 (Saturday) at the Taipeishow exhibition centre, at 2PM and 7PM Taipei time.

Concert ticket pre-sales for either location will begin July 12 (Thursday) at 9AM Singapore / Hong Kong / Taiwan time (GMT+0800 hours). Tickets can be purchased online through the following links:
Hong Kong Mikupa – http://www.hkticketing.com/

Note: As a bonus, all show-goers who pre-purchase tickets before July 31, 23:59PM will be entitled to a Hatsune Miku Hong Kong & Taiwan First Concert “Mikupa” original clear file (A4 size), to be distributed on the day of the concert.
