Yoshiki To Make Guest Appearances On Sarah Brightman’s “HYMN” World Tour

I willing to bet that you never would have expected a post about Classical singer Sarah Brightman and her current tour here on PiercingMetal and honestly speaking, it’s not something I’d normally offer up to the readers. However, since the great Yoshiki did a composition with her and will be joining her for select appearances in 2019 we have to help spread the word. Check it out.

Sarah Brightman has announced that YOSHIKI will join her live on stage for select dates of her 2019 HYMN World Tour, including concerts at New York’s Radio City Music Hall, the Dolby Theater in Hollywood, The Masonic in San Francisco, and Yokohama Arena in Japan.

PiercingMetal Attends Yoshiki of X Japan’s Press Conference (8/11/2014)

Yesterday afternoon I was honored to be one of the members of the media who were invited to the Japan Society for a Press Conference that was being held by Yoshiki Hayashi from the band X Japan (I should mention that he pretty much just goes by “Yoshiki” in the media world so I will refer to him as such as well going forward). The Japan Society is a beautiful space located way down on East 47th Street and I’ll add their link at the bottom of this narrative so you can investigate them a little more if you are interested in Japanese Cultural things because they certainly have a lot of fascinating programs to offer the general public.


Towards the rear of the lobby was a room that appeared to be aimed at Press Conferences and other similar meetings and it was nicely set up for us to hear what Yoshiki was going to say.  According to the Press Release that I received for this happening, the musician would be lining out the bands details about their upcoming one night only performance at Madison Square Garden and his comic book collaboration with the great Stan Lee (master of all things Marvel Comics).
