AKB48 To Perform In The Philippines

AKB48 Team 8

AKB48 have announced that they will be performing in Manila, Philippines.

Team 8 will be a special guest at the Cool Japan Festival, marking the first performance for the group in the country.

A sister group was announced to be forming in Manila by Yasushi Akimoto named MNL48, so it’s not surprising to see that they are pushing to promote the group and get everyone familiar with their music before the group’s theater is built in 2017.

Of course, the main news of AKB48 performing in the Philippines is the most exciting since fans of the area can enjoy some songs without having to go to Japan.

More information will be revealed soon, but so far it seems like an amazing time to be an AKB48 fan!

The event will take place in November.
