X JAPAN acoustic concerts in Osaka


X JAPAN kicked off their WORLD TOUR 2017 WE ARE X Acoustic Special Miracle 6 DAYS with two shows in Osaka on July 11th and 12th, 2017.

The Japanese concerts have been re-structured with classical and acoustic elements, as YOSHIKI is not able to play drums after undergoing a cervical artificial disc replacement surgery in May this year. “The members of X JAPAN will be joined by 16 string musicians. It’ll be a new challenge for us in a way, and we’ll probably play songs that we haven’t played in nearly 20 years. The band members and I decided that we might as well take advantage of this opportunity to play different songs from our usual set.” said YOSHIKI.

After a 60-minute special-edition screening of the We Are X documentary film, the concert at the Osaka-Jo Hall began with Forever Love. Throughout the night, guest opera singers and string musicians joined the band on stage for classical arrangements of X JAPAN’s songs, creating what YOSHIKI proclaimed as a “night that would live in history”.

YOSHIKI thanked the hall full of fans for their support. “I’m so grateful that this concert could go on. I thank everyone for their support, and because of all the fans who gathered at the venue today, I have the power to go on at full power for the next five shows.”

For the second live in Osaka they played a slightly differnt setlist and now they move on to Yokohama for four shows at the Yokohama Arena from July 14th to 17th.

[April Fools Day Article] New X Japan branded Tissues going on sale


Apparently yesterday’s accouncement about X Japan’s US tour in summer and details about the album release aren’t all news yet. After Yoshikitty, Y Wine, Yoshikimono and many other products, X Japan are now also planning to take their spot in the tissue market with a new brand called “Dry your Tears with Love“, named after a line of their famous song “Tears“.

The idea came up when discussing the past of X Japan and all the drama surrounding the band before a screening of the “We are X” documentary that brings tears to the eyes of everyone watching it. Because of this, the first place you can get your hands on the limited exclusive first edition of the “Dry your Tears with Love” tissue boxes (pictured below) will be for the screenings of “We are X” at Japanese theaters from April 14th, for free with each ticket. The regular edition will hit all major convinience store chains throughout Japan starting on May 1st. Details will be released soon!
