Formed in 2005, the popularity of the Akihabara-based idol group has spawned several sister groups in other parts of Japan as well as in other countries like China, Indonesia, Vietnam and Thailand.
Stay tuned for updates on which AKB48 members will be performing at the concert. Announcement will be made on Friday, 7 June 2019.
