(FWV) Hatsune Miku, the computer-generated pop music star, will return to North America in 2016 for the The Hatsune Miku Expo 2016 North America tour, visiting Seattle, San Francisco, Dallas, Los Angeles, Toronto and New York, with more cities to be announced.

Through groundbreaking CG technology, the Hatsune Miku 3D live show features the animated "Miku" projected on stage, singing and dancing alongside a live band. The digitized character is 16 years old, stands 5'2" and wears her hair in two long, blue, ever-swaying ponytails. The global reaction to Miku has been astonishing, catching the attention of Pharrell Williams and Lady Gaga, who selected the animated star to be the opening act on her North American Art Pop tour.

The songs selected for Miku to perform are chosen from thousands of compositions created by a global community of artists. Created by Crypton Future Media, Hatsune Miku is the product of a revolutionary music software program that gives creators the ability to produce original music with a synthesized voice and a digitized, virtual performer. Over 170,000 songs have been released, attracting over 100 million hits on YouTube, two Top 10 Singles, and thousands of illustrations and videos featuring Miku.

To date, Miku has performed these songs in front of an estimated 200,000 people, and a first-of-its-kind performance on The Late Show with David Letterman captivated millions. The star power of Miku, the world's most famous crowd-sourced performer, has been celebrated around the world with toys, fashion, video games and food products.
