Japan's Biggest Rock Band to Play Lollapalooza

04/08/2010
.
They are the biggest rock band in Japanese history. They've sold more than 30-million units worldwide. They've sold out Japan's 55,000-seat Tokyo Dome 18 times...so far. Their look was the direct inspiration for today's Anime.

Yoshiki, the band's leader, songwriter, drummer and classically-trained pianist, was commissioned to compose and perform a piano concerto for the Emperor of Japan to help celebrate the Emperor's 10th year on the throne.

Their song "I.V." was written for the 2007 international blockbuster horror film "Saw IV," and played over the film's closing credits. They are the first-ever Japanese band to play Lollapalooza's Main Stage, and will play August 2010 at Grant Park in Chicago. Their first U.S. release is set for this summer. Even with all of this success, you may have never heard of them. But that's about to change. - They are X Japan.
