Yesterday (February 26th), YOSHIKI presented a new collection of “YOSHIKI Jewelry” during a press party in Tokyo. Around 120 people addended and also SUGIZO was as guest there.
During the party YOSHIKI announced X JAPAN’s plans to start their overseas carreer in the USA properly and therefore the band plans to play in local livehouses in Los Angeles as a step to fulfill X JAPAN’s dream to take over the world.
At last, YOSHIKI on his crystal piano and SUGIZO on violin played “Forever Love” together for the attending fans.
It seems like this is a huge milestone in X JAPAN’s history and there’s nothing left to say but to wish every member good luck and success in future. Let’s help X to take over the world, X fans!!

Ivy had the opportunity to visit ToshI’s last concert [武士JAPAN] and was so nice to give us a wonderful review. This is a great insight into the concert, how the atmosphere was and how everyone – both the members and fans have felt. If you haven’t had the opportunity to see this live with your own eyes, the review will give you an idea how it was. You’ll find the review here in our ‘report’-section – enjoy!

ToshI’s Sayonara Concert sure wasn’t a normal solo concert! While performing the 4 songs of his new album, the concert was also full special version of the other X members’ solo works. With ToshI on vocals! We really hope there will be a way for the people outside of Japan to listen to those songs aswell. Just have a look on the set list, it really makes one curious, doesn’t it?
