At Berryz Koubou’s last concert Shimizu Saki announced that Berryz Koubou would be performing at Seattle, Washington’s Sakura Con. Marking their first performance outside of Asia and their first every performance in the United States. (Well, first ever if you don’t count their fanclub tour in Hawaii, which I personally don’t.) Sakura Con runs from April 22-24. You can register as a guest on their website here.
Why do idol groups always have to perform across the country so I can’t go? AKB48 performed in New York, but I didn’t really care at the time. But as fate would have it, I’d kill to go now.
Even though I personally can’t go, I am completely excited about this. It’s always extremely exciting when idol groups perform in the United States. Something like this will definitely bump up their popularity with foreign fans, even if it’s just a little bit.
So I guess I’ll just have to wait for legions of fan reports, pictures, and videos. To those of you going, you don’t know how incredibly lucky you are. And how completely jealous I am. Berryz Koubou is my 2nd favorite H!P group. Actually 2nd is a tie between Berryz and Buono.
