NEWS: X Japan completes 6 nights of miracles at Yokohama Arena
Starting at Osaka-jo Hall and continuing over six days, “X JAPAN WORLD TOUR 2017 WE ARE X Acoustic Special Miracle 6 DAYS” had its final performance on Monday, July 17, at Yokohama Arena.
With even last-minute additional seats sold out, the number of audience members for the six-day event totaled 70,000. “I want to have a concert that will make history,” YOSHIKI said in a news conference before the first day of performances. For X JAPAN, the band that has made the drums their weapon, and for YOSHIKI, who continues to do the unprecedented, this tour was historic in establishing “a new style”.
Incorporating elements from the special pre-concert edition of the documentary film We Are X, this tour opened the door to dramatic shows that are connected to the film and a yet unheard-of style for X JAPAN. The tour’s final concert started with YOSHIKI’s words: “Welcome to a night of miracles.”
