Thought it might be important to bump this thread again.  Today's the 11th anniversary of hide's death.  Just wanted to throw that out there for the fans who might have forgotten, or if its slipped their minds or whatever.  I'm crankin' the X ballads today for sure.

more news, from the home office of Chase Wang, they are main stage acts and.....

FIRST SONY, TOYOTA, CANON, NINTENDO/Wii, and SUSHI; NOW X JAPAN IS COMING TO AMERICA
A Lollapalooza Main Stage Appearance and U.S. Record Debut Set for 2010

LOS ANGELES, CA - (Thursday, June 17, 2010) -- X Japan, the biggest rock
band in Japanese history, has been confirmed to play the Main Stage at this
summer's hottest ticket, the Lollapalooza Festival.  On Sunday, August 8, X
Japan will make its U.S. concert debut as it shares the stage with other
international superstars such as Lady Gaga, Green Day, Soundgarden, MGMT,
and The Strokes.

Calling X Japan the most successful rock band in Japan is not a statement
made lightly.  X Japan has sold more than 30-million albums, singles and
videos, headlined and sold out Japan's 55,000-seat Tokyo Dome 18 times - so
far - and has started playing to tens of thousands of fans outside of Japan.
Going back to the 1980s, the band's look and sound sparked a global interest
in Japanese entertainment, especially with the Japanese cultural rock
phenomenon, "Visual-Kei," a movement X Japan pioneered that went on to
become a catalyst for today's worldwide Anime craze.

Yoshiki, the band's leader/songwriter/drummer and classically-trained
pianist, has been referred to by his first name only throughout his
professional career, and is arguably Asia's most influential musical artist
and biggest rock icon.  According to one industry insider, "Yoshiki is to
Japan what Bono is to the UK."

"We are very honored to be asked to play Lollapalooza," said Yoshiki.  "This
is a wonderful opportunity for X Japan to bring our music to new fans, to
play some of our brand new songs, and to play for our U.S. fans."  At least
one of the new songs, "Born to be Free," will make its worldwide debut
during X Japan's Lollapalooza set.

The members of X Japan - Yoshiki, Toshi (vocals), Pata (guitarist), Heath
(bass), and Sugizo (guitar) - have been spending time in Yoshiki's Los
Angeles recording studio working on what will be the band's U.S. debut, and
its first album sung in English.  "We decided to record English lyrics for
four or five of our most popular, previously released songs," Yoshiki
explained, "and then write an additional four or five brand new songs, also
sung in English.  We have worked very hard on this album, and are very
excited to present our music to the American rock fans."

Immediately following their August Lollapalooza set, X Japan will fly back
to Tokyo where they will play their biggest concert ever - headlining two
nights at the Nissan Stadium, performing to nearly 150,000 fans.

About THE YOSHIKI FOUNDATION AMERICA
The Yoshiki Foundation America is a California nonprofit, public benefit corporation founded in 2010 by Japanese musician Yoshiki of the multi-million-selling rock band, X JAPAN. A number of personal experiences brought Yoshiki to the launch of his foundation beginning with the loss of his own father when he was just a teenager. Like so many people around the world, he read news accounts and was deeply moved by the devastating effects of the 1995 earthquake in Kobe; in 2009, he paid an emotional visit to an orphanage in Sichuan, still reeling in its recovery, with so many children still displaced and orphaned. Additionally and as a tribute to Yoshiki's late X JAPAN band-mate, Hide, who embraced the support of children with bone marrow disease, The Yoshiki Foundation America provides funds to offer assistance through music to children with this debilitating illness. Music is what kept Yoshiki moving forward with life after his father's passing, and bringing music to children in need is at the heart of his Foundation. While he was thankful he was in a position to donate several pianos and other musical instruments to the schools affected by the Kobe and Sichuan earthquakes, as well as having the children in the local orphanages as his personal guests at local X JAPAN concerts, he wanted to do more, something permanent and enduring.
