In the virtual live space "SHOWROOM" operated by SHOWROOM Co., Ltd., AKB48 / OUC48 "house performances" will be distributed from Thursday, April 16, 2020.
AKB48 launched the "OUC48 Project" with the theme of "Enjoy Nippon from your house !!" in response to the government's emergency declaration to prevent the spread of new coronavirus infection (COVID-19). We have moved the theater from Akihabara to each member's "house" and are working on various projects.
SHOWROOM uses video chat, and 16 performance members are delivering live performances from home. Usually, theater performances have a capacity of 250 people, but the number of viewers at home performances can exceed 50,000.
Furthermore, since it is distributed on SHOWROOM, you can watch it for free. The remote controller is used as a microphone, and the performance unique to the "house" where the casual clothes are arranged like costumes for each song is shown. AKB48, who has been active as a “go-to-meeting idol”, is deepening communication with fans through distribution even if she cannot meet directly.
In addition, AKB48 Team 8 is also implementing a new project. Under the title of “Gathering Eight-chan! G8 Leaders”, eight team members from eight locations across the country will appear in the same room, and a talk variety called conference will be held.
Currently, due to the new coronavirus infectious disease (COVID-19), which is spreading not only in Japan but around the world, various entertainment events centering on live music have continued to be suppressed. Based on SHOWROOM's mission of "eliminating gaps in opportunity and creating a world where efforts are rewarded fairly," we are striving to create new entertainment delivery methods and systems that will bring joy and excitement to everyone. I will continue.
Date and time: May 1 (Friday) 18: 30-
