Fans Rock Hard For Virtual Singer At Comic Con Special Event!
In case you haven’t heard, the VOCALOID personality named IA has begun hosting real life concerts for real audiences! She began in Japan (obviously), but has since been expanding her concerts to places around the world.
As the title of this article suggests, she was just recently in New York City. While this isn’t her first concert in America, this is her first time in New York, and it may signal her return for New York’s next Comic Con.
The official IA Facebook page had this to say about the event –
“Thank you NYC! It was another awesome show and we got so much LOVE from everyone who came to see the concert at Gramercy Theatre last night.
The energy of the New York Audience was amazing!! The next stop is in London at Hyper Japan (Nov 28, 29)!”

IA, who’s known as a virtual artist – originally developed as a voice library for [VOCALOID TM3], made NYC debut with her Special 3D Live Showcase on October 11th (Sun) at Gramercy Theatre as part of NY Comic Con presents NY Super Week!
Fans started to line up as early as 10am on Sunday for 7pm door, and it eventually went all the way around the block of 23rd and Lexington. Many of them were already geared up with IA live T-shirts and other merch they had picked up at the Comic Con, and the glow stick, the must have J-Pop concert item. IA was accompanied by two live dancers who were also performing with her at Anime Expo in Los Angeles earlier, and gave very energetic live performance with several wardrobe changes. Audiences were also wowed by IA’s guitar playing that was added after the LA concert as well as her singing voice, which was so clear and humanly smooth, especially noticeable when she was singing a ballad. 60 minutes of full stage went so fast, but the passionate crowd did not let her go. IA sang two songs as an encore and promised to come back soon.
