IA Holiday Events and 2016 Asian Tour Announced

Recently, IA’s Global Facebook page announced that the virtual singer will continue to make “appearances” at three Kinokuniya bookstores across the United States this month. During these special holiday events, they will premier the live footage from IA’s U.S. debut concert held at Club Nokia – L.A. Live during Anime Expo on July 4th, 2015. All three stores will also carry special IA merchandise as well as Kagerou Project original goods sold at the 1st Place Official Shop “HACHIMAKI” and various conventions throughout the year.

In addition, the official press release also mentions a joint tour featuring both IA and her voice provider Lia. There aren’t many details available at the moment but we do know it will be an Asian tour. However, the press release also notes:

“As the details of their first Asian Tour are being revealed, fans in the US can also look forward to see her (and maybe LIA?) in 2016!”

So there is a chance of there being at least one stop in the U.S. However, nothing has been guaranteed at the moment.
