AKB48 To Headline At The Seibu Dome

AKB48 To Headline At The Seibu Dome

This day was going to come and it was only an issue of which Dome that the group would perform in first .Many believed it would be the Tokyo Dome, which for non-baseball events can hold 60,000 + fans.

Well AKB48 is not heading to the Tokyo Dome instead, they are heading over to near by Saitama for a three-day concert at the Seibu Dome. The Seibu Dome is a professional baseball stadium that seats 35,655 for baseball games and depending on how the stage is set up, you can get up to 50,000 [40,000 would be a good  size crowd] for other events.

AKB48 will perform at the Seibu Dome as part of their upcoming nationwide tour events on July 22, 23, 24.

Coming on the heels of selling a million copies of their current single in two days and SKE48 transferring to Avex, these are happy times in the 48 family.
