Just days after announcing the on-sale date for the highly anticipated US return of renowned rock icons X JAPAN, band co-founder and leader YOSHIKI has revealed that he is preparing another big announcement via a twitter Q & A. Set to take place at 11am UK time on August 6th via his official @YoshikiOfiicial account, YOSHIKI will answer questions from fans using the hashtag #AskYoshiki, before announcing some big news.
Tickets for the New York Comic Con sponsored concert, which takes place October 11th at Madison Square Garden, went on sale last Friday. An hour later the GA floor tickets were sold out. The remaining tickets are available at http://www.ticketmaster.com/XJapan-tickets/artist/723909
Since their debut at Rockefeller Center press conference in New York on August 24th 1992, X JAPAN’s explosive live show has captivated a worldwide audience. The band has had a notoriously tumultuous career, which includes the loss of two of its five founding members to tragic death and breakups. Despite its hardships, the band has steadfastly maintained the X JAPAN vision and brought themselves together to perform this October where their U.S. story started, in New York City.
This performance will no doubt be a historical event. The band will be performing both fan favorites and previously unreleased music from their decades of recordings. The concert trailer for X Japan Madison Square Garden can be viewed here:
With worldwide sales of over 30-million, X JAPAN has headlined a staggering 18 sold out shows at the 55,000-capacity Tokyo Dome known for historic concerts by Michael Jackson and Bon Jovi.
In line with October’s Madison Square Garden concert, YOSHIKI and X JAPAN will appear at New York Comic Con, where YOSHIKI will participate in a panel with Marvel Comics founder STAN LEE and discuss the pair’s collaborations, including the comic based on YOSHIKI, ‘Blood Red Dragon’.
