Yesterday (June 18th), Ra:IN started their European tour with their first concert in Rome. Although there could have been more people attending to watch the show, the atmosphere still was a great one! The crowd was screaming and yelling to welcome the band!
Several merchandise was available at the show, like the METAL BOX Album, their new EP Exclusive, towels, posters, t-shirts and jewelry!
A member of Xplosion visited Ra:INs show in Rome and will report about it soon! So please check back!

YOSHIKI is pretty busy apparently. Nothing new, though.
There’s a lot going on around him lately.
After the publication of his biography “YOSHIKI/佳樹”, the book hit bestseller scores in a flash that way, that it was temporarily difficult to order a copy right the same week when it was published.
That’s not everything, though. After the book was released YOSHIKI received a request for a movie based on his biography. Let’s see where that will lead… We are curious!
Futhermore, it was apparently considered by the publisher Kadokawa Shôten that there may be a Chinese and English version of the book! So there’s hope that non-japanese-speaking fans will have the chance to read this book, as well.
Aside from YOSHIKI’s biography (and the trouble he caused while appearing for signing sessions in book stores in Japan, since the capacity of the book stores wasn’t prepared for the mass of fans who came to see him) it became also known that X JAPAN received a request to appear as opening act of the Shanghai World Expo in 2010 and again, it was YOSHIKI who was asked to compose a theme song for the expo. Maybe (but that’s pure speculation) as a link to Aichi Expo in 2005 where he also contributed the theme song “I’ll be your love”.
