Hatsune Miku is touring North America in 2016

By now, near every fan of anime and Japanese culture knows the name Hatsune Miku. For those not in the know, Miku is an avatar from the Japanese music production suite known as Vocaloid, wherein music is synthesized and sung by an animated avatar; however, the character’s popularity skyrocketed and has taken on a life of its own, bringing a line of video games as well as performing live via hologram.

Now, the digital diva will be touring North America with Miku Expo 2016, with announced dates for Seattle, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Dallas, Toronto and New York. Is the power of otakus in the west enough to make it a success alone? Or will the holographic superstar start a new trend western in live performance?
