Wembley concert and album postponed – or not?????????


As you may already know, a lot of rumours have been around since the end of last week. Nothing has been officially confirmed yet, but confusion among the fans is spreading. Will the album that was scheduled for March 11th be postponed? And what about XDAY, the album release concert and film premiere of “We Are X” on March 12th at Wembley Arena? Will there be a concert without the album?

Here are the facts

The website hollywoodreporter.com published a news article about the “We Are X” documentary premiere at Sundance Filmfestival.

X Japan will release its first new studio album in 20 years this fall. The Wembley show, originally slated for March 12, in conjunction with a screening of We Are X, has been moved to the fall in order to give Pata, the band’s guitarist, time to fully recover from a blood clot.” (quote from “The Hollywood Reporter”)

Shortly after being published, the article was edited to just mention that the album will be out in fall. This is also written in some other articles about the documentary at Sundance Filmfestival since then.

Their latest album, their first to be sung completely in English, is scheduled to be released later this year with a yet-to-be-determined label.” – Variety

The latest show of Ra:IN, another band that Pata is part of, had to be cancelled due to him being ill, but according to Yoshiki, Pata is already getting better, as he told a Japanese news website.

But what about XDAY? In the press releases up to January 20th, they always had a note saying that “The band will also perform live at SSE Wembley Arena in the U.K. for XDAY, immediately following a screening of their new documentary film ‘WE ARE X’ on March 12, 2016.” Since January 22th, this is gone. No more hint at the Wembley concert. However, ticket sales are still going on and the official websites still promote the XDAY event.

And what now?

All these information caused a lot of questions and confusion – especially among the fans who had already booked their tickets, flights and hotel for the Wembley concert in March. But at the moment we don’t know what will happen. During a recent live stream event on nico nico, Yoshiki said there will be an announcement after he talked to the other members. We hope Pata’s health will be better soon and that there will be an official clarification as soon as possible!

X Japan fans are used to postponements and cancelled events, but what do you think now? Are you still looking forward to the album? Are you willing to go to a Wembley show in fall instead of March? After all these years of waiting… will there ever be a new album?
