The annual 4 day Request Hour Best 100 concert dates for next year has been announced with some changes to the event. No longer will it be held at Shibuya AX but to it’s new home at Tokyo Dome City. The dates for the 2012 event is 19 – 22nd January. The other big announcement is that you will not be able to vote for any unit songs anymore – only AKB48, SKE48, NMB48 and SDN48 songs will be available for you to choose. To compensate for any disappointment this may give fans, there’ll be a special ‘Units Festival’ held on the following day after the final Request Hour concert night which is the 23rd January. It’s looking likely that a voting ticket will come with the next single (23rd) which is released on the 26th October as the voting period will be from the 25th October to the 30th November.
