News for Anime Central 2004 and Pacific Media Expo 2004 and A-Kon 2004:

Miyavi cancels US tour and convention appearances

The Japanese musician Miyavi has cancelled his appearances at Anime Central, Pacific Media Expo, and A-Kon this summer.

Each convention has posted copies of the letters they received on their web sites. The letters cite the unavailability of an engineer as the reason for the cancellation. All three conventions plan to find replacement musical performers.

Although A-Kon does not normally grant refunds on convention memberships, they are doing so through May 1st in response to this cancellation. Pacific Media Expo offers refunds on registration through May 15th. Anime Central is not offering refunds.
