Yoshiki to have panel discussion at New York Comic Con

The band hasn’t performed in America since 2010

Legendary Japanese rocker Yoshiki is participating in a panel discussion at New York Comic Con (NYCC) on October 10th from 6:15 pm – 7:15 pm in Room 1A06. As co-founder of global rock group X Japan and one of Asia’s most influential musical artists, Yoshiki will discuss his various upcoming projects including his collaboration with Marvel Comics founder Stan Lee on Blood Red Dragon.

On October 11th, X Japan is also set to play their first concert together since 2010 at New York’s Madison Square Garden where they will be performing both fan favorites and previously unreleased music from the band’s decades of recordings.

This Madison Square Garden concert marks a significant milestone for the band who made their U.S. debut with a Rockefeller Center press conference over 20 years ago, which presented the fierce J-Rock stars to an American audience. The band is finally fulfilling the promise they made to the fans to return. The group has since toured 16 countries, sold over 30 million albums and singles combined, and sold out Japan’s 55,000 seat Tokyo Dome a record-setting 18 times.
