On Saturday, September 25, Japanese rock legends X Japan embark on their first ever US/Canada tour. Pioneers of the modern Japanese rock scene, X Japan influenced some of the biggest names in the Japanese music world today such as Luna Sea, Glay, and Dir en grey. From 1982-1997, X Japan changed the face of music in their home country. Their mix of speed metal anthems and rich, evocative ballads fueled their rapid rise to the top of the industry, selling over 30 million albums and videos. They filled the 50,000-seat Tokyo Dome an unheard of 18 times, and remain to this day deeply rooted in the hearts and minds of Japanese culture. With a new album set to be released this year, X Japan is poised to once again claim their dominance in the land of the rising sun, and maybe this time - the world.
