The Press Release:
YOSHIKI will create a special musical performance to celebrate the Grand Opening of Japan House Los Angeles at Hollywood & Highland on Friday, August 24th.
Japan House Los Angeles is a premiere venue designed to showcase Japan’s art, culture, business, technology, and entertainment to help strengthen cultural ties between Japan and the world. YOSHIKI serves as an advisor for Japan House along with honorary advisor Larry Ellison. With facilities in London and São Paulo, this will be the first time Japan House will open its doors in L.A.
YOSHIKI has been invited to give a special congratulatory performance at the unveiling of the newly-completed facility, which will include a special cocktail reception and a seated dinner with international government, business and cultural leaders, including the Ministry officials of Foreign Affairs of Japan, the Consul General of Japan and celebrities.
Demonstrating his commitment to the mission of Japan House, YOSHIKI personally made arrangements for a limited number of American fans to attend the private event in the unique, intimate setting in Hollywood. YOSHIKI announced the invitation today on his official Instagram, and applications for the rare passes surpassed the capacity limit just minutes after he posted the news:
YOSHIKI’s performance at Japan House Los Angeles will take place just hours before he returns to Japan to appear on a major TV program, which has not been announced yet.
YOSHIKI will then begin his second set of sold-out dinner shows “EVENING WITH YOSHIKI 2018 IN TOKYO ,JAPAN — 6 DAYS 5TH YEAR ANNIVERSARY SPECIAL”. He began the anniversary shows last month, and this 2nd half will complete the 10 shows over 6 days, which also includes his charity fundraising through his 501(c)(3) Yoshiki Foundation America.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’m not going to add much more than my saying that we love all that Yoshiki is about. He just is one of the coolest entertainment cats out there and I’ve been fortunate enough to catch him in X Japan and as a solo performer. Each of these appearances has left me awestruck with the presentation and I encourage my readers to give his music and performances a chance should he be coming anywhere near them. Mind you, he doesn’t get to the USA for performances all that regularly. One has to hope that with these modern times and everyone securing clips for Facebook, Instagram and Twitter (in addition to quality websites like the one you are reading right now) that something will be available for all of us who cannot attend to enjoy. What do you Yoshiki fans think of this news? Are you able to attend? If you said yes, be sure to have a full charge on your mobile.
