We are looking forward to getting more information about X playing at this 20.000 seat venue and we are curious if more concerts will be announced and if the album will be released before their stage revival, as Yoshiki suggested in a recent interview.

Ra:IN concerts in Yokohama and Dallas


Sadly, drummer Tetsu (temporarily?) left Ra:IN, but the band will still resume their activities by holding a concert at 7th Avenue in Yokohama on May 27th and even going overseas and playing at A-Kon in Dallas (Texas, US) on July 6th!

Since Tetsu will not take part at these concerts, Ryuichi Nishida will be supporting the band. Some might already know him from releases of Pata’s former band Dope HEADz, Marty Friedman, Gackt and many more.
