This handshake event commemorates the release of AKB48’s 26th single, “Manatsu no Sounds good!” (released in May). With Typhoon #17 approaching the Kansai district, it was cancelled “considering the safety of the guests.” However, there will be a rescheduled event at a later date.
On the same day, SKE48’s handshake event and HKT48’s performance will be held in Fukuoka. According to the weather forecast, the typhoon will pass from southern Kyushu to Shikoku, and will not approach Fukuoka area. As such, these events will be held as scheduled.
However, they may be cancelled if the typhoon threatens the safety of the event and performance.
