Artist:   X Japan   Yoshiki  
Source:  press release
Yoshiki reveals details of the upcoming tour and discusses his state of mind following his operation.

“This was Hide and Taiji’s dream… a comeback was the only choice.”

Yoshiki made a sudden return to Japan on June 20th (Tuesday), and held a press conference in Tokyo. During the press conference, Yoshiki personally revealed details of his upcoming tour.
Despite the last-minute notice, hundreds of fans selected from the fan club attended the press conference. When Yoshiki, who had landed in Japan that morning, appeared wearing a protective neck brace, the fans cheered and screamed and some had tears in their eyes.

Yoshiki announced that the upcoming X Japan tour would feature a screening of the special, 60-minute edition of the film We Are X which debuted at the Wembley Arena show in March earlier this year. Screenings will begin one hour before the concert, and the concert itself is scheduled to last over two hours. Yoshiki personally disclosed ongoing discussions about whether to include old songs such as “Rose of Pain” and “Unfinished” in the set list as well as the fact that a string section will accompany him on stage.
 

Physiotherapist Carl Dunstan also arrived in Japan from the UK and will be accompanying the band throughout the tour to ensure that Yoshiki, who is only a few weeks post-surgery, will be able to complete the performances.

Mr. Dunstan belongs to the physiotherapist organization Atherapy, which counts numerous renowned artists and actors such as U2 and the Red Hot Chili Peppers among its clients, and is himself an accomplished professional who was Daniel Craig’s exclusive physiotherapist during production of the 007 film Spectre and has treated many other famous actors and musicians. He was able to accompany the tour thanks to an introduction from Larry Mullen, Jr., the drummer for U2, with whom Yoshiki is acquainted.

​Furthermore, it was revealed that the plans for the Yoshiki Premium Dinner Show 2017, which begins August 26th, had designated from its inception that 150,000 dollars (approximately 18 million yen) of the sales would be donated to charity, and that the staging of the show itself was decided upon with these plans in mind. The donations will go to the University of Miami’s Frost School of Music, which is one of the top two music schools in the U.S. Shelly Berg, the school’s dean, is also responsible for the string arrangement for the X Japan tour and the quartet arrangement for the Dinner Show. The donation will be used to help musicians of the future create the next era of music.

There were also moments in the press conference where Yoshiki described his experience of going through rehabilitation. “I don’t know if I will be able to play the drums again. Even if I am able to do so, it may be impossible to perform with the same intensity as before. I can’t even say for sure, at this point, whether I would do so if I could.” These words clearly express his turbulent emotions following a major surgery.

“If there were no X Japan reunion, I would not have had surgery twice. But the time put into the reunion and the challenge of taking on the world are worthwhile. I do not regret it. And I will not stop until I break down the wall.” As a result of the dangerous surgery, Yoshiki said he often thought about the direction of his life.

Yet, having overcome that surgery with the support of myriad members and fans, and with the goal of completing the Japan tour serving as a kind of fuel, he has decided to “show the best of myself on stage.” No doubt Yoshiki’s resolve will be engraved into history by six miraculous nights.

Due to changes in the style of the X Japan tour performances, those who wish to do so can apply for a refund of their ticket purchase at the Udo Music Office website: http://udo.jp

Artist:   X Japan  
Source:  Press release
​"I Can Only Live by Moving Forward. I Want a Goal to Live"

During a press conference held in Tokyo on June 9th, X Japan members Toshl, Pata, and Heath, along with host Udo Artists, Inc., announced that the "X JAPAN WORLD TOUR 2017 WE ARE X" concerts in Japan at Osaka-jo Hall (July 11 and 12) and Yokohama Arena (July 14, 15, 16, and 17) will be performed as acoustic concerts. The title of the tour will be changed to "X JAPAN WORLD TOUR 2017 WE ARE X Acoustic Special Miracle 6 DAYS".

Although Yoshiki successfully underwent cervical artificial disk replacement surgery and has already started the rehabilitation process, doctors cannot say with certainty that he will be able to drum like he used to. Since doctors have instructed him to stay away from vigorous exercise for at least 6 months, he cannot play the drums for the time being. However, since Yoshiki himself does not want these scheduled concerts to be canceled due to his surgery, he asked whether there would be any way to make the concerts happen, and the band members sided with him when he reached out.

X Japan members explained during today's press conference that these performances will happen as "acoustic" concerts with Yoshiki only playing the piano, a decision based on Yoshiki's rehabilitation schedule, projected recovery timeframe, advice from doctors, and his current state, after multiple discussions with promoters and WME, Yoshiki’s U.S. agency.

During the conference, there was also a phone call from Yoshiki, who is currently going through recovery in Los Angeles. After conveying his message, saying “I want to move forward. I’d love to be given a chance to do the shows”, Yoshiki also revealed, in response to the emcee’s question, that the “EVENING WITH YOSHIKI 2017 IN NAGOYA & OSAKA & TOKYO JAPAN” premium dinner shows scheduled for this summer will also happen.

Regarding his decision to go on with these performances in Japan, Yoshiki had already made up his mind prior to the procedure that he will make the tour his goal to overcome the surgery. The fact that fans from around the world were so concerned for Yoshiki was such a blessing, however, he stated "I want to accomplish this goal I promised to myself by any means." In other words, the goal of doing this tour helped him overcome his surgery. His message implied that, even though there are concerns for his physical ability, he is ready to address the challenge to make the July shows a success.

Based on what we know about Yoshiki's current state after surgery, we cannot say that his rehabilitation, which is very painful, is going smoothly. Shortly after surgery, he was not able to walk on his own, and even breathing normally was difficult. This is why he became worried if his fingers would move normally and headed to his recording studio after getting out of the hospital. Currently, he is feeling numb from his mouth to neck, and a pain that feels like electricity is running through his left arm. Under doctor's supervision, Yoshiki has been advised to "move around as much as possible" and he is following his doctor's instructions in order to get himself ready for the upcoming shows.

26 years ago, X Japan performed a single acoustic show in 1991, when the band was called “X”. During the show titled "Silent X", Yoshiki did not drum and the band members came on stage with their acoustic guitars. Their long-time fans called it the "X never to be seen again".

Yoshiki’s surgery struck people as a shocking news, but because it has transpired, a legendary concert will come to life which people thought would never happen again. The July concerts may very well be called "Elegant X Japan", which has evolved from "Silent X", something beyond the realm of acoustic, with beautiful strings, that people can indeed call a “Miracle Night” as the title reads.

Yoshiki said before the closing of the press conference, "I am very sorry to the fans who have worried for me. As long as I stand on stage, I want to inspire people."

Statement from Udo Artists, Inc.

As this X Japan tour of Japan was flooded with demand, all performances were sold out immediately. We unfortunately caused concern for many fans and related companies due to the emergency surgery on Yoshiki, the leader, drummer, and pianist, but we sincerely appreciate the countless words of encouragement and support from inside and outside Japan. Since the content of the performances will be changed from the original plans to an acoustic format, with the addition of strings and other aspects as announced today, we will be providing refunds to those who desire one. Refunds will be processed through the ticketing agency you used. Please visit the Udo Artists, Inc. homepage for details.

Toshl Statement:

We will support Yoshiki with everything we have, and we will fight with him. For the upcoming shows, I want to share the X Japan that an audience can only see in a moment like this and be inspired together.

PATA Statement:
I'm sure I'll see you soon, Yoshiki, but good luck! I'm looking forward to the July shows.

HEATH Statement:

The July shows will be our first acoustic concerts. We will do out best to make it an inspiring evening. We appreciate your support.

SUGIZO Statement:

Under the circumstances, I will do my best. I will give my heart and soul under any situation. That is my responsibility.
