This looks awesome, thank you! I'm sure they got a few new fans there and whatever our expectations first were, with many criticizing Yoshiki for this move, I think it was a good decision to play there. Despite the first weekend technical fiasco. they got tons of publicity from major newspapers/magazines and they got nothing else but praise. They became THE BAND that played opposite Beyonce. If you really want to break into Western music scenes, you need to get out there and play major festivals. They should go on to play other festivals, also in Europe. I'd love to see them at Sziget Festival :)

Why not Hellfest? Their BFFs Marylin Manson and Wes Broland play there all the time. Reeks of moldy cheese and tasteless beer but still a very decent festival.

Woah, I can haz admin colour.

Those clips were great! From what I could hear, as I can't turn the sound up loud right now, they sounded better on this show than the last one for sure.   I wish they would have streamed this one, too - soooooo much!

Here's another one I saw with a montage of different songs, ending with Tears.

Sometimes our tears blinded the love
We lost out dreams along the way
But I never thought you'd trade your soul to the fates
Never thought you'd leave me alone

Dir en Grey were performing at Wacken 2011.

While I'm away, read this line again...

That Rusty nail video was great, toshi sang that as well as he did at Lolapalooza, it's great hearing he can still sing that strongly. I.V was great too. Jade was alright, for me it just shows he sings too high sometimes and his voice sounds very thin, his vibrato was sounding gappy, that Rusty Nail video is where his basic tone should be, pretty much for all songs.

This.
Rusty Nail on this concert was amazing. It was a long time since we heard Toshi's voice so amazing like this.

But is weird like X Japan social media became Marilyn Manson social media since this concert. Marilyn Manson himself tweeted a total of zero times about Coachella, while X JAPAN official twitter posted ELEVEN different articles about Marilyn Manson playing with them. Not about the concert, not about the public positive reviews of the concert... Just about Marilyn Manson.

That's just basic marketing. MM's name is a bigger buzz word in the US than X Japan is so putting his name on Yoshiki's SM brings more people to Yoshiki.

I do wish MM would tweet something about having fun performing with X/Yoshiki though, and post a few photos on Instagram... He has a big cult following so it would obviously be appreciated...

(And hey... It's not like Coachella was going to invite him alone.)

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

The amount of youtube videos I've seen with the titles "MARILYN MANSON ft x-japan" annoys me. Uh nope, other way around people. Still it does give X publicity no matter what, but maybe more if X were written there as the main act which they were, I think the amount of "Marilyn is all that matters!!...who are these X dudes..." type comments would've been a little less.

I'm not sure I want Marilyn Manson's fandom getting into X Japan, though LOL

Manson did post one Instagram post about it before. https://www.instagram.com/p/BhsPd0wBOQd/?taken-by=marilynmanson so not zero at least ;)

Yoshiki seems to have been fascinated by David Lynch. He even asked David Lynch to direct his music video for "Longing". I speculate David Lynch was one of Yoshiki's idols like KISS, David Bowie, Sex Pistols, etc. When I first heard that David Lynch directed the MV "Longing", I screamed... Wow! Yoshiki met his hero again? He is a successful fan. How wonderful his life is!

But, apparently, the MV was not released officially for unknown reasons. And Yoshiki never mentions David Lynch. It's a bit odd given that how much he boasts his relationship with celebrities like Marilyn Manson or KISS, and even brief encounters with Michael Jackson or Bill Gates. I speculate something happened between him and the director. Haha!   

Fortunately here they are together, from Yoshiki's official twitter :-) :

I think Yoshiki is amazing here... he seems an evanescent gentle alien coming from who knows where...

Personally I wasn't impressed with Manson's performance...
...oh well, all the things you do for exposure on the American Market
