A new chapter in the legend of X JAPAN 'Hakai no Yoru (Night of Destruction)'.

X JAPAN 2009-01-06

On December 31st 2008 X JAPAN's opened the curtain on their World Tour with X JAPAN COUNT DOWN GIG ~shoshin ni kaette~. Their first overseas show begins in Hong Kong January 16th (today).

X JAPAN in Hong Kong: Inside the arena

The show is being dubbed as X JAPAN WORLD TOUR ASIA Live in HONG KONG  and subtitled 'Hakai no Yoru (Night of Destruction)'. A show full of surprises, the curtain on the world tour opened with the name 'shoshin no yoru'. However, in Hong Kong it’s already being called 'Night of Destruction'. No doubt set to be a full throttle ahead start for X JAPAN.

For Hong Kong this is the first time an Asian or international artist has held a rock concert of such a scale. Set to be one of the biggest events of the start to the New Year, Hong Kong media and media from around the region have gathered to get footage.

The capacity at the venue HONG KONG ASIA WORLD EXPO, is approximately 10,000 people. Due to instant sell out of the originally scheduled January 17th 'Hakai no Yoru' show, and the anguish of fans whose anguish chocked up the phone lines of the bands local promoters, a 2nd show was added for the 16th of January at
short notice.

The members of the band arrived in Hong Kong on January 14th, with YOSHIKI holding a one man press conference where he told local media of his enthusiasm and excitement about performing the shows.

At last the moment overseas fans of X JAPAN have been waiting for has arrived. The band has gone 'back to its origins' and is headed for the first chapter of destruction... with their bodies on the line, there's no stopping X JAPAN now.

2009 is about to write a new page in the legend of X JAPAN.
