International rock icon Yoshiki announced today that he will add three new concert dates across Asia to his highly anticipated YOSHIKI CLASSICAL TOUR. X-Japan's founder and leader will bring his first ever classical concert tour to Taipei,
Taiwan (June 13th), Tokyo, Japan (June 16th) and Osaka, Japan (June 17th). The newly added concert dates follow Yoshiki's recently announced Bangkok, Thailand date on June 10th.
Yoshiki, a classically trained pianist known best as leader of the globally renowned rock band X-Japan, will perform original, classical songs from his recent solo release YOSHIKI CLASSICAL, which debuted at the top of the charts worldwide. YOSHIKI CLASSICAL debuted at #1 on the iTunes Classical Music chart in 10 countries (along with 4 Top 10 debuts), and has been spotlighted by Billboard Magazine, MTV, Reuters, and AOL, among others.
Yoshiki will embark on the YOSHIKI CLASSICAL TOUR beginning April 25th in southern California at Costa Mesa's Segerstrom Center for the Arts before setting off across North America, Europe and Asia, culminating in Yoshiki's native Japan.
