I remember when the Gorillaz came out. I was taken by the music and the concept. A cartoon band that makes bad ass rock and hip hop music. Who wouldn’t like that? But I wondered “How are they going to tour?”
Fast forward to today and the Gorillaz are indeed touring, but they’re no longer a cartoon. They are a real live all star band. The shtick has changed so they are no longer strictly confined to the Cartoon world.
But in Japan, a country known for it’s fanaticism to cartoons, a cartoon has been able to stay animated and perform more than just one off live concerts. Awesome, or scary, either way it’s impressive for a cartoon.
From what I can gather it’s a cartoon that has made a lot of money and performs in hologram form. But from watching the videos below you can see that a Hatsune Miku concert is much more than just a hologram. It’s a true concert experience. (Via Yo! Japan)
