Tearing Apart the Labyrinth. The Deets on the 4K 35th Anniversary Release.

1 Aug

Fans of David Bowie can rejoice! Not only are we getting a proper transfer of the film to this ultra high definition format instead of a downscaled version from the last release, but also there’s new material to look at!

AKB48 Group Asia Festival 2021 ONLINEFor more information, please visit the official website.

Anyone yearning for that summer concert experience will have to wait a little bit longer because of the pandemic. Thankfully, some show promoters are keeping it virtual. Anyone wanting their J-pop will be glad to know AKB48 will be performing at Asia Festival 2021 Online.

This event was first held back in January 2019 and won instant accolades. In the same year, on August 24th, a second event was held in Shanghai and was met with equal enthusiasm. The look into what made each group unique was key to this show’s success.

This pay-for event will present performances from the internationally popular J-Pop idols and their sister groups on June 27. Just like a real concert, different levels exist for those wanting “the perks” like pre-show, post-performance exclusives or souvenirs to this digital show.

This event will unite AKB48’S sister groups from across Asia, including JKT48 (Jakarta), BNK48 (Bangkok), MNL48 (Manila), AKB48 Team SH (Shanghai), AKB48 Team TP (Taipei), SGO48 (Ho Chi Minh City), and CGM48 (Chiang Mai).
