X JAPAN @ Lunatic Fest – Setlist


Party time at Lunatic Fest! The amazing line-up of day 1 certainly rocked the stage! There were a bunch of surprise appearances throughout the day, for example Pata joining Tokyo Yankees or Sugizo showing up with his violin during Dir en Grey’s performance. The night also ended with a special Muteki style band, uniting tonights artists on stage – Yoshiki brought along hides guitar as a tribute to him. :)

There was also an interview with the band afterwards – but unfortuntely they didn’t share any news. :P

• Miracle
• Jade
• Rusty Nail
• Kurenai
• Kiss the Sky (recording the audience’ vocals for the new album)
• Endless Rain
• Born to be free
