Mexico City’s (known as DF for the locals) anime & manga festival, TNT Expo, will host 2 Crush 40 concerts on October 18th & 19th at 4:00 PM Cental Time. With this, Mexico is becoming the 3rd country Crush 40 is visiting for a concert (after US & England), the 1st Latin American country to receive them, and the 1st non-Sonic or SEGA related event date outside Japan; so a lot of expectation is happening for the SEGA and Sonic fans over there.
Jun Senoue & Johnny Gioeli will have meet & greet autograph signings for people who purchase selected VIP tickets, which will only available until this week’s Friday October 10th, each for a $18.52 (MX$250) cost. What’s cool about those tickets is that they give you access for both concerts and the 3 day event with a VIP zone in front of the stage for the concert, and a collector’s edition postcard and wristband. So not only you get to meet Crush 40, you can watch them 1st row! Regular day pass tickets for the event are $10 (MX $130) and do not guarantee access to the Crush 40 concert once the hall is full. Merchandise, such as Crush 40 T-Shirts & CDs will be available for sale at the event, we’ll let you know the price as soon as the event management lets us know.
In case you are in Mexico in those dates, being foreign, you can purchase regular Expo tickets directly in the event’s box office.
Address for the event is the following:
Centro de Convenciones de Tlatelolco
Eje 2 Norte (Manuel González) 171, San Simon Tolnahuac,
