Macross The MUSICULTURE
Firstly, some updated news regarding the upcoming Macross The MUSICULTURE musical.
In commemoration of both the MUSICULTURE (that word just HAS to be typed in caps!) and the 30th anniversary, Tokyo Dome City – the greater location that the musical will be held at (ie, its going to be at Tokyo Dome which is within Tokyo Dome City) is creating some Macross campaigns and promotions. These include a stamp rally within the amusement park (renamed the Superdimensional Amusement park – completing the rally gets you an original clear file), rides will be decorated Macross-style (the ferris wheel will be decorated with pics, gondolas will play Macross BGM, Sheryl and Ranka will have pre-recorded announcements, etc), Macross-themed food and drinks will be designed exclusively for the venue, and the store/shopping area will have a special Macross merchandise section.
This promotional campaign will be split into two periods. Period 1 is from Sept. 28 to Oct. 15, and Stage 2 is from Oct. 16 to Nov. 4.
