I'll add a list of people from here who might be there. It could be useful if you want to hook up or schedule something. I won't be going myself so I won't be able to organize a meeting  :(

@Kimuuu, just skip the class  :lol:, it's a once in a lifetime event!! AKB48's first time in the US!

^awesome  XD. You went to see MM in LA as well, right. I'll be nice to compare the impact they made and other differences and stuff.

It's a pretty kick ass team they're sending, I don't think you'll be disappointed! Even if you don't know most of them, that doesn't really matter.

Some more info;



No Photographing, filming, and recording is permitted.

Doors open at 4:00 PM
Concert starts at 5:00 PM

Sky PerfecTV!HD will probably film the entire thing, so we might get a proper DVD release  :)

And I think the concert is 18+?  :shocked:
