YOSHIKI Announces Classical Music Tour and New Single Release "REQUIEM"



YOSHIKI will perform a series of classical concerts with orchestra this October, headlining shows at Tokyo Garden Theater (Tokyo), Royal Albert Hall (London), Dolby Theater (L.A.), and Carnegie Hall (New York).

This tour will be the first time a Japanese artist has headlined all these historic venues. The concerts will celebrate the tenth anniversary of his Yoshiki Classical album which reached #1 on iTunes Classical charts in 10 countries.

YOSHIKI will perform his new compositions, orchestral performances of his chart-topping songs from X Japan and his new groups, and pieces by classical composers Beethoven, Chopin, Tchaikovsky, and Rachmaninoff.

The tour will also feature several special guest performers to be announced in the coming weeks.

YOSHIKI said, 

"Last year in May I lost my mother. At that time, I couldn't do anything. I had to cancel my live TV shows, and I actually went to see a doctor, The tears kept coming for days. Then I started composing this song called 'Requiem'. I thought I should move forward, I shouldn't give up. To move forward and to really thank my fans who supported me, I decided to do this tour."

In addition to his groundbreaking world tour, YOSHIKI will release his latest single, "Requiem", on July 21. X Japan's first single in eight years, "Angel", will be released on July 28.

YOSHIKI was invited by the GRAMMY Museum to make the announcements at a performance and conversation event hosted by the museum's Chief Curator and VP of Curatorial Affairs Jasen Emmons.

YOSHIKI has gained international recognition for his work in music, television, and film. The Disney+ documentary film Yoshiki: My Music Story is currently airing; and Yoshiki Live at Carnegie Hall is available to PBS viewers nationwide.

YOSHIKI's talent competition series YOSHIKI SUPERSTAR PROJECT X became the #1 ranked variety show on Hulu Japan, leading to the upcoming debut of hot new boy band "XY". Recently, YOSHIKI finished a sold-out world tour with his rock group THE LAST ROCKSTARS.
