October 7, 2014 -  MIKU EXPO has exploded into a massive multi-featured event, with several guest and special event announcements before Hatsune Miku's USA television debut on David Letterman this week (Oct. 8). 

Hatsune Miku's appearance on the nationally-televised show will give American audiences a preview of the MIKU EXPO performance awaiting fans at L.A.'s Nokia Theater and New York's Hammerstein Ballroom during the next 2 weeks. 

MIKU EXPO recently revealed its Halloween Party Area Map for the L.A. event at Los Angeles Center Studios, which will include an art exhibition, limited-edition goods, and the 360-degree "Skylight Theater feat. Hatsune Miku". Another major event is the Hatsune Miku Halloween Dance Party hosted by L.A.-based J-Pop music event group Tune in Tokyo, with special guest DJs from Japan including "BIGHEAD" - the composer of MIKU EXPO theme song "Sharing The World" -, and multi-talented producer Machigerita.

In New York, Simone Legno from tokidoki will give an exclusive signing session at HATSUNE MIKU EXPO at gallery Wallplay, celebrating the tokidoki x Hatsune Miku collaboration. New York fans can also take part in the Hatsune Miku panel at New York Comic Con, the Piapro Postcard Exhibition at Kinokuniya, and grab exclusive goods.

The official Hatsune Miku Facebook page has revealed that Hatsune Miku's live performances in New York and L.A. will be a mix of English and Japanese songs, including the fan-favorite song "The World is Mine".

A special Nendroid Hatsune Miku Halloween version figure by Good Smile Company will be released for the MIKU EXPO event, available at the Miku Monster Store (L.A.) and at NYCC and Wallplay Gallery (New York)


Celebrating the music, imagery, and interactive excitement of Hatsune Miku with back-to-back events in October, MIKU EXPO is a once-in-a-lifetime chance for fans to immerse themselves in the Miku World.
