This was a concert held on August 22, 2009 in Tokyo in which Japanese synthesizer artist Daisuke Asakura performed under the giant life size Gundam robot located in Shiokaze Park in Tokyo's Odaiba waterfront district. Officially called "Daisuke Asakura Club Event Seq Virus 2009 G-Remix Night", it was attended by thousands of fans of both Asakura and the Gundam robot franchise. This 59-foot-tall (18-meters) Gundam robot was constructed to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the original Gundam character created by Yoshiyuki Tomino and Sunrise studios in 1979. This was a TV series called Mobile Suit Gundam, but since then the Gundam character has grown into a more than $500 million (50 Billion JPY) trademark owned by NAMCO BANDAI Holdings Inc. of Japan. The giant robot which emits lights, steam, and rotates it head was opened to the public in early July 2009 and will be dismantled in September. It is officially called the "Green Tokyo Gundam Project".
