Update on 22nd October: According to IGN, the X Japan song I.V. will be available to download for free, along with 19 other songs, for all Rock Band 2 PS3 and Xbox360 owners on 4th November and for Wii owners when Rock Band 2 will come out on Wii in December.

Update:A BXtE report from the event! Part 1!


[15.09 Info confirmed by BXtE: (check the original post here)
Quote from: BXtE Website
1. First of all something that might be of interest for you all, Yoshiki stated that the concert on Novermber 22nd in Bercy will happen for sure. It will be the first time for a Japanese rock band to play in a hall of that size in Europe!

2. Furthermore there will be an X Japan December 31st count down concert in Tokyo. The place isn't decided yet, though.
X Japan fans living in Japan or will visit Japan around that time can also look forward to a concert at X -mas! He mentioned, that it will be a concert of "X with something". What the 'something' will be is yet speculation, though.

3. Since Yoshiki announced an X Japan world tour, he also mentioned a new release in new future. He also composed a new X Japan song that is much more rock than the others we got to listen before. According to Yoshiki, when they did I.V., the members of X Japan found out that Toshi still can go crazy singing those songs and they decided that it might be appropriate to release something more powerful, as well.

4. Yoshiki is the executive producer for the introduction of the "Rockstar" sports drink in Japan.  Rockstar is the sponsor of the U.S. "Rockstar taste of chaos"
 Further, there are some news, that Yoshiki didn't intend to announce on that day, but he did so anyway:

5. Soon there will be published a new game called "Rock Band 2" which will also be sold in the United States and Europe. That game will also contain X Japan music!

6. In 2010 Yoshiki will be involved in a project that is happening for the 100th birthday of Akira Kurosawa. The moderator mentioned that it is unusual for japanese rockstar Yoshiki doing something for the japanese director Kurosawa outside Japan. More information isn't announced, yet.

Please note that the news aren't in the order they were announced.
A live report and an translation of the interview will be online as soon as possible!



According to http://www.xjapan.ne.jp/ , Yoshiki will be holding a press conference in Tokyo for fans. The announcements supposedly include X Japan and Yoshiki produced projects.

- Event is free for fans to attend
- There will be a special World Tour start X JAPAN Street Army t-shirt
present from Yoshiki to 3000 lucky fans
- Fans are encouraged to bring CDs/Concert pamphlets and other goods
that show that they 'Love X JAPAN' (looks like there might be a signing session)

Video of the news report

According to a Nikkan Sports article, Yoshiki said he is OK to fly and that he would like to hold a few concerts at different locations in Japan within this year. More details will be announced on 15th September, along with an announcement on YOSHIKI's non-music related project(s).

Thanks to X Japan official website and Screaming KIAI


UPDATE: The place for the press conference will be the Yoyogi National Gymnasium (10,000 people) and Yoshiki will announce upcoming X Japan plans and a new project by him. Yoshiki chose this venue because the announcement needs an "olympic style/class". The first 3000 people to enter the stadium will receive a special T-shirt, but it's forbidden to camp the night before the event, or it might be canceled.

Note that the translations might include mistakes.

UPDATE, Sept. 12th, 22:00 Tokyo time, by PanthereNoire:

According to a press release at this site, there will be a live broadcast of Yoshiki's press conference available on carrier DoCoMo's cell phones in Japan real time,  with movies to follow later on the two other carriers as well. (Summary by me.)

The rest of the article is how to access the service, plus a repeat of everything that's already been said.

It's times like these I wished I lived in Japan. Ah well atleast we're going to get some anouncements about everything. I hope they reveal some new dates for the tour. Part of me hopes they anounce that they're filming the gig in Paris. Other bands have filmed there before like Placebo so it's not that much of a stretch just very wishful thinking on my part.

It's good that finally we're getting official statements from YOSHIKI.
Concerning the announcement as a producer, maybe it's VUK CD (I'm still hoping for it).

Hopefully this involves an announcement of the world-wide release of the new greatest hits album. I wanna finally be able to walk into a store and purchase an X Japan album, and attempt to get others to do the same! Though hearing an announcement of when the NYC gig will be happening would be great too.

Dream scenario would be an announcement of a Toronto world tour date and the entire main X catalogue being released world-wide as well but that's just insanely wishful thinking.

Though now that I think about it, I wouldn't be shocked if DVDs of the reunion concert series are mentioned. Ha, guess we'll see. I wish more musicians I listened to did stuff like this. I can't remember the last time a band I liked held a press conference.

maybe someone of you can translat it properly, as far as I found out with the help ob Babelfish, it seems that it will be held at the Yoyogi hippodrome Olympic plaza (if that's the right translation *g*), and that you may can get a T-Shirt. But as I said, my japanese is bad and I think it would be better that someone who can speak it could give a short summary.

Updated the first post. I found the translation on LJ (by darkcat) so I guess it's more or less correct.

Well, there's not really much to say about it, really.
It will be held at Yoyogi National Stadium, admission is free and first 3000 people to arrive will get a special X-Japan Street Army T-Shirt (they are encouraged to bring their prized possessions as CDs, concert pamphlets and goodies to show they are X-Japan fans...) . But people are not allowed to come too early and camp in front of the stadium, because if they do there is a risk the event might be canceled (in that case, can we expect another nekkid apology?).

I have already noticed some Japanese people discussing what to bring with themselves to the stadium - many of them want to bring their favourite CDs or posters, but they are scared of losing them. Dilemma, eh. ;D

Pony rocks!

Thanks both of you, sounds interesting, first 3.000 people get a T-Shirt for free? Not bad at all. And I'm cruious what the new X Japan plans are (concerts, albums, permanent new member?) and almost as much I wanna know what Yoshiki's new project is.

Well, I think it could be future concerts.
And as for the other projects, perhaps his recent charity activities?

And here I thought translations weren't allowed on X Freaks according to Disclaimer #2.  My, how things change. ;)

Disclaimer #2 was about illegal content, last time I checked... Well it was about user responsibility and illegal content... But that doesn't really matter...

Maybe you're thinking of Rule 2?

"When posting translations or rumors, please include the source (translator) and a disclaimer to remind others that there may be mistakes or other inaccuracies. Also post a link/reference to the original source (magazine/website/etc), if possible. Please note that we consider everything not confirmed by an official site to be a rumor."

Seems its all there. ;)

Thanks for the post. I'm looking forward to whatever the announcements are. :D

Please, at LEAST be the release dates of the best of albums! I'm dying to hear a studio version of Without You!!!

Oh, I completely agree with you, translations are obviously welcome and allowed on X Freaks or else there wouldn't be a Rule #2 at all.

I tried to make that very point recently, when Hypno said that translations can and should be removed from public view because they violate Disclaimer #2 even when they comply with Rule #2.  The rules on this subject are clearly more, ahem, "fluid" than you and I think. ;)
