I'm giving up on the idea of seeing them performing live. I just can't trust them after all these.

If it's true, then good luck selling out anything more than a pub that fits 60 people in Europe.

I'm sorry to say it, but after this I've decided I won't EVER go to see them live even if one day they decide to keep their word.

This is really too much.

I'll keep on waiting for their releases and all that stuff, but as for concerts in Europe , I just don't care anymore.

I actually feel physically ill.  My friend and I had just booked our tickets to Paris. Come on, I love X's music but this is grossly irresponsible!

I agree with Artseeker. Unless they perform next to my house, i'm not watching them anywhere else in europe

I think I'm the only one who would still go to a concert, if there would be one ._.

Yeah, I am mad, but... seeing X live is all I ever wanted. So even if they postpone another 10394827940 lives, I will stil support them.

Call me an idiot if you wish XD

Of course I would also go to one, but right now I think 'Yeah, two weeks ago I was pretty sure the concert will be postponed, then there was the message 'Hey, ticketssale will start at Nov 10, everything is being fine' after that I booked everything and now it is like 'Ah, by the way, we decided to postpone it''.

Yeah, I know this is confusing... but I'm wondering how X feels about this. Can't wait till the press conference.

True, but we must hear X's side of the story. I just hope they have a reasonable explanation (and I hope they will), and a new concert date, PLUS the promise that it WILL happen this time.

Well, seems like they can.

Meh, I guess the one good thing is that if they ever do preform, it'll be at a nice little venue with a few hundred die-hard fans because they won't be able to do much more than that... Unless maybe if they postpone it to ~summer 2009 and all the other concerts happen without any problems.

they had the same promise after June. Best thing X can do now?Fire their management, at least if they want to do a world tour.

If it really is the fault of the management, they should immediately do so.

Well i'm sure it's not Bercy's though. Since the same thing happened in June and Bercy was NOT involved it's either X's managment or someone who got involved in both concert arrangements.

Ahahaha. Omfg I can't believe this. It's so far from being funny but I'm laughing hysterically out of frustration.

Oh X Japan, you will NEVER see me at one of your Europe lives.
Maybe if I happen to be in Japan during one of your concerts someday, I might attend.
All I can say is: NO. You can NOT do this, whoever's fault it is. This cannot happen TWICE in one year.

Oh jesus.

Do they even realize that them NOT playing is costing people fucking money? Cancelling rides and hotels isnt that fucking cheap, X.


I'll be still going of they play, any (i think) real X fan would. Guess I didnt wait with booking the hotel for nothing.

Booking hotels usually doesn't cost that much, maybe you have to pay a small fee if you cancel, but I have usually paid for the hotel when I get there (or check out). Plane tickets however are a different thing.

Ok, I'm sorry for you guys but I'm loling that I didn't make any reservations whatsoever (both times). They should fire their management, though, not for postponing but for basically not giving the fans any information at all until it was too late (twice).

RIP

Hey guys.

I just logged in (I've been reading you for a long time, actually since this fictitious world tour was announced).

I cannot explain with words how ****ing pissed off I am right now. I booked flight for me and my girlfriend to see them live. From Spain, and you know what? Low cost companies DO NOT ACCEPT CANCELLATIONS! I mean, I will have to pay the bloody ticket no matter if I catch that plane to Paris or not. Fortunately, reservation in a hotel did not cost anything. But for God's sake, is there anybody to give us back 200€ for a trip we won't do?

I CAN'T FIGURE OUT HOW IN THE WORLD THEY CONFIRMED THE DATE IF THERE WAS THE SLIGHTES POSSIBILITY TO HAVE IT CANCELLED. I waited as much as possible to do the reservations, but come on!! It was so E-V-I-D-E-N-T that they were going to play this time, once for all, in Europe...

I am ****ed, pissed off, angry, sad and with 200€ less in my wallet. Now, THAT'S annoying.

I would "only" have to pay 50 more € if they confirm the new date in Paris before the 20th of November, because I will be able to change the dates. But of course, this won't happen, and they will wait AGES until the next announcement.

God, this is ridiculous. ****'em.

^ why don't you just go to paris and have a great time there, without X? There's a lot to visit over there. (may sound stupid, but I just want to help.)

In one day? oh c'mon. I would invest money in seeing X because they are the best rock band ever. But honestly, I have been in Paris several times. And you know, this time was an X Japan thing. Nothing else.

I'd rather go see some punk band for 5€ around here lol V_V
