Last Sunday, I shared that there will be a new anime/otaku event “JPLEX” that is held in Singapore at the Republic Polytechnic from 04 – 06 Mar 2011. Ticketing for the Super Anisong Live Concert featuring Japanese band FLOW and angela has already commenced, so interested folks can head over to the official website.
According to the media release, the concert will be taking place at the “The Republic Cultural Centre Studio” in Republic Polytechnic. angela will be taking the stage first on Saturday’s afternoon at 2pm. Then FLOW will be holding 2 concerts, 8pm on Saturday and 7pm on Sunday.
Tickets for each concert are priced at $98 and each concert will be limited to only 300 seats per show. The organisers have decided to hold Jplex concert differently from the ones at AFA because they wanted to allow fans to have an intimate session with the artistes, including the meet and greet session after each concert. Hence to offer such an intimate experience with the artiste, the organisers have decided to go for quality instead of volume and priced the tickets higher.
The organisers have also announced that attendees who have bought concert merchandise will receive autographs from the artistes but the details are still being finalised. To keep update on to the latest details on the concert, you can like the Jplex Facebook page.
Its a rare chance that awesome bands such as angela and FLOW would come down all the way to our tiny island to perform, especially FLOW is performing for the first time in Southeast Asia. Hence I’d encourage everyone who likes their music to turn up and show them our greatest support by cheering them on just like what you see at Animelo!
In order for our entertainment industry to grow larger so that organisers can keep on bringing in more quality artistes to perform in Singapore, we also need to show our support within our financial capabilities. Do remember that this is just Volume 1 of Jplex and if there are good reception, we will have more opportunities in future to see more of our favorite artistes from Japan!
