Starting 4th May, live hologram performances from popular artists "AAA!"

"Aruaru City," a building that is packed full of manga and anime related shops, have announced that the grand opening of "Aruaru City Hologram Theater" will take place on Wednesday 3rd May (national holiday). We were lucky enough to sneak in for a special preview screening on Sunday 9th April. Thanks to the use of holographic images (a technique that records and plays back 3D images), the "Aruaru City Hologram Theater" is more than a theater that uses video, it's a venue that can be used to put on a show that combines together holograms, 2D images and live performances from popular artists in any order or variation. Japan's first hologram theater-cum-live performance space has the capability to let fans enjoy a live show in which artists perform on stage with holograms; a new style of entertainment awaits!
A joint venture between Kitakyushu City, Aruaru City and Avex Entertainment to help facilitate growth in the field of entertainment in Kitakyushu, opening the theater was the first project that they have carried out. It can seat up to 380 people! Avex Entertainment will be providing the holograms and the first show to take place in the theater after its official opening will be "AAA Hologram Live," which will start from Thursday 4th May (national holiday). With "Aruaru City" as a base, the entertainment scene in Kitakyushu City is sure to grow and get even more exciting!

AKB48 Yuki Kashiwagi appointed as "Aruaru City's 5th anniversary official ambassador!"

On the same day, to celebrate the 5th anniversary of Aruaru City, AKB48's Yuki Kashiwagi was announced as "Aruaru City's 5th anniversary Official Ambassador." For the next year, Yuki Kashiwagi will be promoting Aruaru City and Kitakyushu City on TV commercials and in other media. Wearing an original outfit made for a TV commercial and with excitement in her voice, Yuki Kashiwagi said "I heard that 'Aruaru City' was a famous facility from one of my colleagues in HKT48. I'll do my best, together with all of you, to help this place become even more amazing." On Wednesday 3rd May (which is a national holiday), a special live performance called "Yuki Kashiwagi X Aruaru City Vol.1" will be held to mark the opening of the theater. Don't miss your chance to see Yuki Kashiwagi perform with a hologram! You will be able to enjoy this new attraction in Golden Week, so why not go along to "Aruaru City" and check-it-out!
