On August 26 YOSHIKI will perform at the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles in an event entitled “An Evening with YOSHIKI” to promote his upcoming album “YOSHIKI CLASSICAL.” For those who can’t make it to the already sold-out event, the show will be broadcast on Nico Nico Douga at 8pm PST (August 27 at 1200 JST). He will be performing songs from the new album (which will feature collaborations between Yoshiki and Beatles producer Sir George Martin, the London Philharmonic Orchestra, the Tokyo City Philharmonic Orchestra and the Quartet San Francisco) and X JAPAN classics, and there will be a talk portion as well as a chance for fans to make requests via facebook and twitter.

The album is set for digital release on August 27 and hard copy release on September 24. A North American version of the album will also be issued.

If your interested in hearing samples before the show, YOSHIKI has set up a separate website, Yoshiki Classical , where you can get a taste of what’s to come!
