I think it's a made-up story to generate drama tbh, released straight from Yoshiki's press team.

That's also my thought.

if you take a look on his newest Instagram Video, I highly doubt that guy went anywhere close to his studio! -___-;

 ;D ;D ;D ;D

Excuse me, but I had to start laughing instantly. btw he looks really nice, as he is there without makeup in the bed (picture before).

He looks like a normal human being there. Unkempt hair, stubbles :) Too bad he only allows himself to be seen like that when he is sick. Finally we got a glimpse into what he looks like every morning before the beauty routines ;)

I joined a couple of X Japan/Yoshiki fans that are doing that cheesy thing where we're making a get well video for Yoshiki. If anyone would like to join here's the facebook event: https://www.facebook.com/events/181809429008373 :)

I have received the email from Xjapanofficial today,  saying that Yoshiki will be in Paris at the beginning of July.
From the video he posted on his twitter, it seems that it's even difficult for him to walk. Will he be well enough to be in Paris in a month's time?

Ha yeah... He'll probably be able to move by then but I doubt that flying is a good idea and probably he won't be able to do anything more than a Q&A anyway... In two day they'll announce what they'll do about the YC and X concerts... we'll see... :/

So looks like X will still perform in Japan next month, but as an acoustic set?

Yes, Toshi's Instagram says the same. So it will be acoustic, with Yoshiki on piano only. I think it is a fine compromise, at least he gave in to his doctors and won't touch his drum kit for a while. That's a good thing. We all knew he wouldn't possibly cancel all the shows altogether. He is way too workaholic for that. If the doctors allow him to play piano, I'm fine with that. As long as he really takes care to heal in between.

An acoustic set is good, as long as they are including acoustic versions of their faster songs and not only playing all ballads, i.e. play it that way:

Extremely mixed feelings about this. Glad they're offering a refund option to those who aren't down for the change to an acoustic set. Honestly, we've been burned for 10 years with this band, what would another year postponement do anyway?? I think even Yoshiki realizes that he's fucked with us too many times. Also, no mention of the "unannounced US tour" that was supposed to start in the summer either. I mean, none of this should be a surprise after the type of surgery he had, but it's just so much harder to accept after how long we've been waiting and mislead. Said it before and will say it again - glad I got to see them in 2010 because so far, it proves to be the one and only time I'll ever get.

somehow it just feels like whatever Yoshiki does is criticized, regardless of the actual results. had he postponed the whole thing, you'd complain, "look, another postponement". If they decided to do the shows as planned, you'd most definitely go "he's crazy, he won't be able to drum in this state, they won't be able to finish the tour", now that a compromise was reached, you complain about that as well. I'm sincerely curious, what does he have to do in this situation that you would stop complaining? I think it is a good compromise that that concerts will be held. And in any case, it's in Japan, where people can see them aplenty, anyways, so I don't think most Japanese fans complain about the acoustic. (Those who do, will get their refund). It doesn't affect you in any ways personally, so why the complaining again?

I am pleased that Yoshiki feels good enough to play the piano in the upcoming concerts.
I think it's a welcome solution for most of the fans. Actually, it's a very rare chance to see a whole X acoustic
show. Although no more X jumps. LOL

Teemeah, the way I see it, I don't think Feudal's post is any kind of complain.  He/she just told us the opinion.

Hmmm would be quite nice to see a live recording release, either video or audio, from these concerts.

Dude, I am totally with you, a hundred percent, on that front. To be honest, I kinda feel like the saying "absence makes the heart grow fonder" kinda fits into the situation.

It doesn't affect you in any ways personally, so why the complaining again?

Couldn't the same be said for you though? I mean, you've been complaining over the people who are "complaining" about the recent controversies with the band, so you know. . . Just putting that out there.

Physical copies? Heck yeah. Maybe they could post it on Nico Nico too, but don't hide it behind paywalls, those suck.

Same here. I wonder what kind of songs will be played... maybe Rose of Pain (Acoustic version)? That would be awesome.  :)

I have to agree that this is an awesome compromise. Even, a little welcome. Has X Japan EVER done an entirely acoustic set? It would be so cool if they played Rose of Pain... love when ToshI plays acoustic guitar on it.

I hope they record it and let global fans watch it on YouTube tbh. Or at least a live stream. It would generate buzz about them for sure, since it will be Yoshiki's first performance after surgery (wink wink PR people, wink wink)
We are not trying to keep the legacy—we are trying to move forward, so our sound is going to change. I’m ready to be criticized, for example by fans saying "you should rather be this style." I’m ready for it, I’m okay with any concept of criticism-Yoshiki

I'm one of the first people to call X-Japan (specifically Yoshiki) on their bullshit, but I have to say, even I'm impressed by this move. Considering the nature of the surgery he just had, I'm amazed Yoshiki feels well enough to keep the show on. I think an acoustic set is super cool, and hell, even if they wanted to make that their thing for an entire world tour (assuming he's well enough to travel), that'd be pretty neat. I genuinely hope this isn't at the expense of his health, though. As vocal as I've been about keeping promises and the importance of integrity with your fans, I don't want anything to conflict with the man's well-being. None of us do.

This is pretty rad, though. Will definitely make for a great show!

I think in one of the articles I saw it mentioned that it would be broadcast live on wowow. Probably some fans will also put it up on YT. I doubt they would do a YT live stream, too, though that would be freakin awesome. (and tbh X Japan marketing peopel suck, so I don't expect them to think of international fans...)

Yes, if I remember correctly, the final one on July 17th Yokohama is the one being broadcast by wowow.
Coincidentally, it's also the one I will be attending, one more reason to look forward to this.
I also think the decision to go acoustic is more than just a compromise, could turn out to be something very special.

Yoshiki flew to Japan for a pressconf today and the news articles say something like his condition is not so good, apparently his body is not accepting the implant well, he experiences considerable pain and his hand is still numb. Regardless, he will proceed with the acoustic concerts and believes that he would heal eventually.

I wonder if he is going against doctors orders with this if it is true? Surely it would be better to be fully healed?

Wouldn't be the first time, I guess. Probably his doctors also know his personality by now, so they go for the least damage scenario... That's my guess. No way he would sit idle for 6-8 months.
