As some of you may know, X JAPAN’s live show performed at NHK’s studio – having their fans as audience – was aired in NHK’s weekly music program “SONGS” last December. Less than 3 months later, they will be featured in it again!
Apparently, some scenes from the film “We Are X”, as well as parts of their rehearsal for the Wembley show, and their interviews will be shown. You can also watch NHK’s programs from overseas via a paid service NHK World Premium.
