I skim watched it last night, will have another look today. A good setlist, was nice to hear River of Light in full.

I believe they will also be adding English subtitles to all the talks in between at some stage soon.

Yea, the time is a bit meh, (11pm work night for me). Some one posted a comment about the ime and not being able to watch the broadcast live, and Yoshiki staff replied:

“The concert will be available for replay at a later date for Yoshiki Channel International members.”

So sounds like an on demand video of the concert will be up at a later date for a short period of time?

According to setlist.fm, here is last night’s set:

1. Miracle (S.E)
2. Rusty Nail
3. Hero
4. Forever Love
5. Kurenai
6. Endless Rain
7. Kiss the Sky
8. Born to Be Free
9. X
10. Say Anything (S.E)

Solid set, not too sure what version of Forever Love they played, and I assume Kiss The Sky is the piano version with a verse or so and audience participation in the chorus.

As a side note, I like that they chose Rusty Nail, rather than Jade, as they first song. Such an epic opening for concerts.

If anyone finds any footage, link please!

Well, according to today’s press conference, Yoshiki has finally, after 10 years, finished recording the album.

He mentioned that he now needs to start talks on how and when it will be released, so I assume this means mixing is also complete.

Yoshiki / Yoshiki & Sarah Brightman
« on: September 13, 2018, 10:08:25 AM »
At his press conference today, Yoshiki announced he would be performing with Sarah Brightman on a song featured on her new album, Hymn, out soon.

After a little snooping, it looks like she will be performing a version of “Miracle”. See below Twitter video.

maybe Red Swarn...

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

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

Would be nice to have some professional footage.

Video of Yoshiki playing Red Swan on piano. Sorry, a Twitter link.

Can hear hints of Art of Life and Rosa in there?

I will reserve judgement until I hear it, but if it is true that it is only Yoshiki, Sugizo and Hyde, why not just call it a “YOSHIKI” feat., song?

Unless it is actually a X Japan song and this is just the Hyde version?

Still excited to hear.

Toshi / Re: Toshi's Remarkable Voice
« on: March 22, 2018, 07:30:53 AM »
I have always admired how Toshi sings his high notes.

Please, someone correct me if I am wrong, but Toshi hardly, if at all, sings falsetto to reach high notes. I always feel this makes his high notes sound a lot more clear, stable and more impressive.

Is this correct to say?

Hmmm, I would have to say Hero, (band version).

However, from the bits we have heard recently of Kiss the Sky, the full studio version is going to be epic!

Keep an eye on YouTube. The whole concert was up there in three parts, but was taken down rather quickly...I am sure more copies will crop up over the next few days.

3. Kiss the Sky
4. Pata and Heath Solo
5. Drain
6. Sugizo Violin Solo
7. Silent Jealousy

There has been surprisingly next to no videos circulating around the net. I guess it hasn't helped that there have been no official streams of the concert.

A couple of clips from the Osaka show, (11/7), on this person's YouTube channel. Has Hero and Angel.

[Videos Taken Down]

I really like how Angel is coming along...

Another nice night by the looks of it. Makes me think doing an acoustic tour has its pros lying in the fact that the song selection has expanded compared to previous years?

« on: June 30, 2017, 07:35:12 AM »
I have also wondered this. Not so much who would replace Yoshiki, but if he would allow X to continue into the future with another permanent drummer...

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

So far, I'm watching the interviews that didn't make it into the movie, starting off with Yoshiki's.

Are the additional cut interviews substantial or just quick couple of minutes for each member?

Got to say, pretty awesome walking into a JB HiFi in New Zealand and seeing two copies in the Soundtrack section! Hey, it's something! XD

Thanks for the details regarding the extra features! Look forward to those interviews!

Was kinda hoping the extra concert footage would be post reunion stuff, but not complaining!

Now just wondering if I buy the US version or wait until the Japanese one is released with the hopes of more added content...thoughts?

I would be very surprised if Scarlet Love Song was featured.

Yea, it has sort of been rejected since it's release...correct me if I am wrong, but the only time it was performed live was at the Toshl feat. Yoshiki shows?

I think it ended up being a song purely done for a soundtrack, though with the released title being "Scarlet Love Song -BUDDHA MIX-", perhaps it will see the light of day again in another form?

« on: April 01, 2017, 04:52:19 AM »
Fanacc on Twitter also said that The Last Song and Art of Life will be included... What?!

Hmmm, I could kind of believe The Last Song actually...remember the photo Yoshiki posted of the Master Album Sequences in 2015? Tracklisting that could be seen had 1. The Las....

I just wonder if this will be the case, will it be a re-recording or the original track from the end of the 90s? I would think if it was included and would be the opening, it would need to definitely be at the least arranged into a shorter version.
