Akihabara idol group AKB48
has decided to expand into Nagoya. Using the name SKE48, the unit will start holding performances in the city's Sakae ward in the near future.
AKB48's popularity has grown rapidly through their almost daily performances in Akihabara, and just recently they completed their 1000th performance. They have also made their major label debut and made their first appearance at Kohaku Uta Gassen last year.
It is not yet clear whether the group will recruit new members for SKE48 or simply send their current teams to Nagoya, but a press conference on June 5 at the Sunshine Sakae will reveal more details.
