Yoshiki to perform at Japan Expo on July 4th 2014!


You weren’t able to go to Yoshiki’s Classical World Tour tour or can’t get enough? On July 4th he will come back to Europe – to Japan Expo in Paris!

There was quite some see-saw in the media, after the Japanese music news page Natalie reported that Yoshiki would probably be there but Japan Expo denied it later. But fortunately for his European fans, Yoshiki won’t gone for long after his solo world tour and will return for Japan Expo 2014.

Two of the attendants of his Japan Expo performance will be invited to X Japan’s concert in New York on October 11th.

He had been at Japan Expo – one time with Toshi and once with all of X Japan – a couple of times already and almost got something like an inherent part of the convention.

We are looking forward to seeing him back in France and are curious whether it will be a performance only or will be outmatched by a startling announcement!

About Yoshiki in Berlin

• He announced wanting to go on a “fucking world tour” with X Japan and the concert at Madison Square Garden just being the start of it.
• Germany’s special song was “Wind of Change” in a piano-only version that felt even more emotional than the original song by the Scorpions.
• Our Scrapbook Project, in cooperation with the X Japan German Street Team, was successfully handed over to Yoshiki!

YOSHIKI at MCM London Comic Con


While on his Classical World Tour, YOSHIKI also takes the chance to visit a couple of conventions!

At 3pm on May 24th, he’ll  give a talk and Q&A session at MCM London Comic Con!

As revealed by their japanese press release, he will also probably attend Japan Expo (July 2nd – 6th) in Paris, France.

Apparently the original source, Natalie, had reported false news, as stated by Japan Expo Staff and Orient Extreme and YOSHIKI will NOT appear at this year’s Japan Expo.
