After prolonging the wait for the tour “Hatsune Miku Expo 2020 USA & Canada” several times due to COVID-19, the team behind Hatsune Miku, Crypton Future Media, has unfortunately released a cancellation statement detailing the reasons behind the decision. It essentially boils down to them not being able to guarantee the health and safety of fans and crew, especially if the tour is already going to be held next year.
It is no secret that America is currently one of the worst affected areas in the world. Considering the statistics we have today, the decision made by Crypton Future Media might be for the best even if it does bring tears to our eyes.
The team hopes to be able to keep fans active with other engaging activities across the world and hope to share those plans with us soon!
You can read the full statement which was released on the official MIKU EXPO website on September 29:
Cancellation of HATSUNE MIKU EXPO 2020 USA & Canada
Dear Hatsune Miku fans and supporters,
Earlier this year, Crypton Future Media announced the postponement of the HATSUNE MIKU EXPO 2020 USA & Canada concert tour on two separate occasions, most recently announcing in June the postponement of the rescheduled September and October show dates. This decision was made with the sincere hope that the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic would soon be on a path to containment, allowing for another rescheduling of the tour for 2021.
Unfortunately, given the current trajectory of the disease in North America and worldwide, it has become more and more clear that the conditions to hold the event while guaranteeing the health and safety of our fans and crews will very likely not be met within the next year. After much consideration, it is with heavy hearts that we have made the decision to cancel MIKU EXPO 2020 USA & Canada. For inquiries on ticket refunds, please contact your ticket vendor.
We are currently redirecting our efforts towards new ways of engaging with Hatsune Miku fans across the world, and hope to be able to announce our upcoming plans with you all soon.
Thank you for your understanding and continued support.
