Yoshiki: X Japan Drummer To Host Intimate Dinner Show For Fans In Tokyo
For the fifth year running, X Japan's leader Yoshiki will host an exclusive dinner for some of his biggest fans. The event, "Evening With Yoshiki," will be held at the Grand Hyatt in Tokyo, and will feature a performance by Yoshiki himself.
In addition to Yoshiki's intimate performance, the Asami Maki Ballet Company will be on hand to provide entertainment. Yoshiki is also expected to infuse the evening with his entertaining announcements and banter as host of the ceremonies.
Dinner guests can expect the finest, as the full-course French gourmet cuisine will be prepared by some of the most well-respected chef's in Tokyo. But all of this will come at a hefty price tag for fans hoping to break bread with their hero, as the tickets will rn 86,400 yen per person (about $814), according to Japan Today.
Just last year, Yoshiki made a generous donation to MusiCares to the tune of $100,000 to support hurricane victims on behalf of Yoshiki Foundation America, his 501(c)(3) nonprofit foundation. The donation came following a screening in New York City of his band's award-winning documentary, We Are X.
Tickets for this event usually sell out in no time and, while reservation details are still forthcoming, you can mark your calendar for "Evening With Yoshiki" held nightly July 13-16. Stateside fans can catch Yoshiki (for only slightly cheaper) with X Japan later this month at their Coachella debut.
