Thank you, Kasumisty

above, info on this year's FMA Festival on Official FMA Movie JP site
It's called "Fullmetal Alchemist Festival 2011."
It will be held at Yoyogi National Stadium in Tokyo, on Sat. May 11, 2011.
It is an one-time only event (at least it seems that way as of now ^^)
Many current and past FMA VAs, and music artists for the OP/ED are expected to attend/perform.
The stadium will be open for seating starting 4 PM, and the show will starts on 5 PM.
Seats are all reserved seat only, and the ticket is 7,200 Japanese Yen (tax included) => It's about $89 U.S. with the current rate
There is a special pre-sale reservations period between Jan. 1, 2011 and Jan. 16, 2011.
To get the ticket during this period, you go to
this ticket-agent site and click on the Orange button there. I can't get connected to the next page and hence I can't find out the details on what we need to do next, but it seems there will be a drawing, and then the limited number of lucky fans can get to purchase the pre-sale ticket during this period.ETA
: To get tickets, go to this site
There are Two Orange
buttons on the right side.
If you are in Japan and can pay through Family Mart
& pick up tickets at Family Mart
(in Japan), you can put in for the drawing to buy tickets for Sat. May 21 show (first day). To proceed, click on Top Orange button
. There will be 500 Yen service charge in addition to 7,200 Yen ticket price. You can only enter one time for the drawing, but fro each entry (if you win) you can buy up to 4 tickets.
Assuming readers here wouldn't be able to use Family Mart
If you're paying with credit card, click on bottom Orange button
to get tickets for May 22 show (second day) through emart
Pre-order period for this was Mon. Jan 31 〜 Thurs. Feb. 3, with ticket sold to ones who won the drawing, but that's gone, and now it's general sale period (Friday, Feb. 11 ~ Monday, May 16, 6PM Japan time) and it's "first come, first served" now. You will need credit card for this. It will be charged at the time of order. For each order you can buy up to 4 tickets, and you can order max of 4 times. Ticket price is 7,200 yen. All seats are reserved seats.
To order, scroll down, then choose number of tickets, like this:
If you're newly registering and click on the Pink button
on the right side, I believe the next page is to read the service agreement, blah blah and click "Yes" at the bottom, and then the next step is to fill in your credit card info etc. Unfortunately my connection is having hard time loading the next page. If you're buying the tickets and need the assistance for filling in registration form, etc, take the screen shot of the page and post it on this thread, and I or some others will try to help you with reading Japanese.
