Slowly we are getting used to the venues/ticket sellers/promotion agencies announcing X concerts before the band or their management. Just, that this time, YOSHIKI doesn’t know anything about the concert either, as he stated on Twitter!
Tickets for the concert on July 6th in Cologne are already on sale, but please be careful when buying, as there still isn’t a confirmation by the X Management or the band!
We’ll keep you up to date about this!
Update: In the meantime, the venue and promotion agency removed the concert date in cologne from their websites and ticket sales have been on hold for days. The concert in cologne will NOT take place. Please ask the ticket sellers for refund in case you already bought tickets.

As we announced a month ago, YOSHIKI is putting his grand crystal piano on auction to gather funds for the victims of the natural disasters that struck Japan in March. The auction started today and the price of the piano has already gone up to 50,001,000YEN or $601,987. With over 6 days left until the auction ends, the money gathered will surely be a huge help to those in need.
The YOSHIKI Foundation America, a non-profit charity organization that YOSHIKI founded, has gathered other items, such as autographed t-shirts from Robert Pattinson, Reese Whiterspoon and James Franco, autoraphed comic books by Stan Lee and even the Red Hot Chilli Peppers 2008 MTV “Album of the Year” award. The other items are expected to go up on auction soon. You can see the full list of the items on the YOSHIKI Foundation America webpage.

YOSHIKI just confirmed some dates of X JAPAN’s World Tour, only 1-2 hours before the tickets for London and Berlin will go on sale.
That’s all for now! But more dates will be added at another time. :)
The London venue has been updated from O2 Academy Islington to a bigger venue O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire! The tickets are still valid, so no need to worry about that. Also, there are more tickets available for this show, so if you still need London tickts, hurry up before they are sold out again!
As for the concert in Paris, the ticketsale will start on April 19th at 10am on avosbillets.com
And another venue change happened! The Berlin venue has been updated to Columbiahalle, which holds up to 3600 people!
