AM˛ Announces kanon x kanon as Guests of Honor

Lolita Sensation Kanon Wakeshima to Perform Solo and With An Cafe’s Kanon to Have the U.S. Debut of kanon x kanon at this Summer’s Most Anticipated Animation, Music and Manga Convention in Southern California

LOS ANGELES, Calif. (April 15, 2011)– Experience the rich and haunting sounds from Japan’s most entrancing “cello vocalist” Kanon Wakeshima and legendary Akiba-kei Otaku male sound creator and famed An Cafe bassist Kanon as they come to this summer’s most anticipated anime, Japanese music and manga event AM˛ as official Guests of Honor! More info and attendee registration can be found at www.am2con.org


“Cello vocalist”, Kanon Wakeshima took up the cello at age 3. Her incredible talent caught attention of Visual-kei star Mana (Moi dix Mois, ex-MALICE MIZER). Kanon’s rich, haunting sound fit well with the Gothic & Lolita street fashion culture for which Mana is very well known. Kanon Wakeshima will be performing a solo concert at AM˛.

In addition, Kanon Wakeshima will be joined by famed An Cafe bassist, Kanon, to have their U.S. debut of the “2.5th-dimension phenomenal musical unit” kanon x kanon at AM˛ as well. The duo’s deep affection for anime and anime songs, mixed with their distinctive visual expression, is definitely something new. They are intangible products of thought, emerging from the 2.5th dimension that lies between the real world (3D) and the world of Anime (2D) to create Anime songs for all to enjoy including the opening song for Fuji TV’s highly popular anime SHIKI.

“I am totally stoked that kanon x kanon will have their debut U.S. performance at AM˛,” states AM˛ representative Chase Wang, “and Kanon Wakeshima is so enchanting that to have her perform a full on concert as well is an amazing treat! Fans will be mesmerized by her artistry and amazing talent!”

Kanon Wakeshima and kanon x kanon joins heidi., Gashicon, IBI and MINT as official AM2 Guests of Honors for 2011.

AM2 current activities include Exhibit Hall, AMV’s, Arcade, Summer Festival, World Cosplay Summit, Behind the Voice Actors Studio, Rum Party Pirates, Cosplay Chess, Dances, Fashion Shows, Table Top, Console Gaming, AniMaid Café, Workshops, Panels, Concerts and more!

Partnerships include Ani.ME.

Prize sponsors include Atlas Games, Cosplay Wigs USA, FUNimation and Gaia Online.

she might do a song or two from her first 2 solo albums, then kanon of an cafe will prob come on stage and they will do the songs they have as kanon x kanon.

after all, she has her 2nd album she is still supporting.

According to their press release, she will perform solo as well as kanon x kanon. I think they are two separate concerts.

Yes, they are both separately I believe.

I am sooooo excited. It'll be my second time meeting and seeing Kanon preform , and third time seeing Kanon preform but first meeting him.

Hm wouldn't it be a better deal for you to purchase a 3 day passport at $40.00 rather than purchase two single event tickets for the two concerts at $20.00 each? The 3 day passport will allow you priority access to autographs and allow you to go into the guest parties to meet the guests in person. I don't think the single event wristbands come with that.

Yep, that's right. Plus, if you're paying the same price anyway, you might as well get the other stuff like food discounts and Summer Festival tokens.

lol passport seems to do everything do 3 days are smarter over 1 day or 2 imo jus for all the extras imo for all the stuff announced.

Nice 1 announcement actually counts as two for Kanon and then Kanon X Kanon, even earlier was heidi so musical guests are getting plentiful for am2 so far

Looking at their main event ticketing page, it looks like there are three unannounced concerts.
