@YoshikiOfficial has a big announcement tomorrow. We hope everything is OK. #XJapan #Yoshiki

Yoshiki's been very quiet lately. Let's hope this is the announcement we've been waiting for - album release date and/or touring information. Strange line to put "We hope everything is OK"; especially coming from the official X Japan Twitter...lol

Everytime he announces an announcement, there has to be some drama around it. "We hope everything is ok" and the "I miss you hide" post...

I don't know what to expect. And I don't want to get too excited either... Let's just wait.

lolololol!  ;)

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

Wow. That just made me shake my head in disbelief for a while. I mean, how poorly can one communicate?

In today’s concert Toshi made a comment about tomorrow’s announcement, my friend that went said he said “No need to worry. All is fine”

Yoshiki's been very quiet lately.

Noticed that too, probably just on holiday, though.

Yup, the drama bit was funny. Just as with most things X Japan's PR people do, you can't help but wonder if it's a dumb or pretty genius move.  8)

Woah, I can haz admin colour.

These are their biggest non festival concerts since 2010. Around 30000 each night.

ok cool,

but why are they always (yes yes, not always) playing a couple of shows at one location. Yes, maybe it's cheaper because they don't have to travel around and the technical stuff doesn't have to be relocated, but a few shows across the country would be ... more nice i think.

Seems nice.
But I still think it will be 3 days with the exact same setlist. The same one they've been playing since 2011.

You are not going to see them, why do you care? Japanese fans that will be attending are fine with it.

Does anyone know of at least one of the nights will get broadcast?

Would be nice to have some professional footage.

I hope so. I'd pay for a good streaming.

Curiously, few days before the 3 kurenights, they'll play on TV Asahi Dream Festival, on the same Makuhari Messe.

Yea, I think that might be a possibility. To show that the whole Red Swan thing was a big misunderstanding?

Maybe, but I have a hunch that they most definitely won't play Red Swan live... ever. Or at least not in the near future.

Woah, I can haz admin colour.

yes, maybe because it's not anymore a song under the "X Japan" brand

They can't play it. :D It is not an X Japan song. Maybe they'll finally play the full version of Kiss The Sky.

And even if it wasn't a matter of copyright, and if they could make an arrangement for Toshi to sing it or have Hyde make a guest appearance, the song raised so much drama and backslash I don't think they feel like playing it live.

I can totally see Toshi's fans throwing grenades at Yoshiki on stage. Die, traitor, dieeeee~~~~~ ;D

I think Yoshiki will play the song with Hyde, he’s also playing the same day as them. I don’t see X Japan playing it any time soon, tho, but every song Yoshiki ever wrote always ended up being sang by Toshi anyway lol

Hahahaha, I hereby give you my word that in the unlikely case of me attending an X Japan concert with Hyde in it, I will do my best to refrain from throwing any grenades, sharp objects, Toshi My Melody stuffed animals or any other potentially offensive artifacts at poor dear Mister Hyde. Cannot promise that all X Freaks will comply, tho  ;D

still hoping that they will do a world tour though. But no album and  again 3 concerts in Japan. Seriously, if no album drops, they need to fuckin tour at least. Nobody thinks about non-Japanese fans, we are good to be paraded around in documentaries "proving" how successful X is overseas, but when it comes to actually doing something for us, we are always 90000 miles behind Japanese fans. Nobody communicates with us in English, apart from Yoshiki's sentimental postings (his official announcements, however, are 80% in Japanese), and the occasional once-in-a-blue-moon post by Sugizo. :( I don't get this.  They supposedly have American management. Yet nobody talks to us in English. This is really beyond sad :(
