Online MOSAIC.WAV concert 「AKIBA-POP√NICOLLECTION」 happening this weekend

Sham Studio wrote in to remind international MOSAIC.WAV fans that the "2012 LIVE「AKIBA-POP√NICOLLECTION」 in ニコファーレ" event is about to take place on Saturday, February 25th 2012. There are actually two sequential concerts, one at 1PM and the other at 6PM. Use this handy website to convert Japan time to your own timezone (late Friday night for most North Americans).

If the timetable isn't a problem and you're aching to see a live MOSAIC.WAV performance in the comfort of your home, you'll need to shell out 1500 nico points, which works out to ¥1500. That's pretty damn cheap considering real tickets are around ¥6000. It's actually easy to buy these points online as long as you have a Visa card. Just follow this simple tutorial and you'll be set. Having a good internet connection also helps.

Actually, if you're not up for a late-night MOSAIC.WAV concert, you can also opt to go with a "time shift" (that yellow button with a clock) which lets you purchase a postponed event viewing. The only "disadvantage" is you won't get to post regular or サイリウム comments. We're not really sure how many times you can rewatch the video, if at all. This timeshift option also expires on March 10th. Mandi would like to remind first-time point buyers outside of Japan that it's possible your company will block the purchase, under the suspicion of overseas fraud. Just call them up if that happens.

According to the website, ave;new are set to open the show. We'd assume that's also included a part of the virtual ticket, so quite a nice bonus! Of course, nicofarre being a proper concert hall, those who get to be there in person will not only get to experience the joys of a real live concert, they'll also be able to get their hands on all kinds of spectacular goods. Probably the top must-get item will be this 「neko にゃんこ POP!」 CD which is sure to become quite rare.

Speaking of にゃんこ-POP, here's a recent MOSAIC.WAV song to get you pumped up for this weekend's live event! 「とどけ!イン・にゃあ・はーと」 was on their latest album 「AKIBA-POP√RECOLLECTION」 which we unboxed with great pleasure back in December 2011.
