Yesterday, Yoshiki successfully completed his Yoshiki Classical Tour Part I in Osaka! During his first solo world tour, he visited 10 counties countries and held 13 concerts. We hope a lot of you were able to enjoy the concerts!
It seems like he is only getting started, though, as he already announced a row of upcoming events, such as his participation at Paris’ Japan Expo in 2 weeks and the Dinner Shows in Tokyo in August.
Here are some details from his Japan shows.
Again, Yoshiki was welcomed by his fans – and press teams – at his arrival at Narita Airport. From there he took a helicopter to Tokyo. There seems to be a great atmosphere on the way to Osaka by bullet train, traveling together with his staff and musicians.
He played “Furusato” in Tokyo, which means “Homeland” and is a traditional japanese folk song. In Osaka he performed “Osaka de Umareta Onna”, a folk song from the last 70ies.
During the first act of his Tokyo concert, all X JAPAN members appeared on stage. Sadly they didn’t perform together, but made an announcement for concerts in Japan this autumn!
