YOSHIKI to Present “The World’s Most Luxurious Dinner Show” in August — Overwhelming Demand for Premiere VIP Packages Sets Record High; Special Tickets Announced for Overseas Fans

Worldwide Streaming of X Japan Music and Spring World Tour for THE LAST ROCKSTARS Announced at International Press Conference in Tokyo

YOSHIKI will host his annual “Evening/Breakfast with YOSHIKI 2024” dinner show in August at the Grand Hyatt Tokyo, offering a total of ten performances for the annual event which has continually set the bar for quality and elegance at exclusive artist events. The announcement was made at a May 17 press conference in Tokyo attended virtually by media from North America, South America, and Asia.

YOSHIKI’s dinner show tickets famously sell out immediately after they go on sale each year. Fans rushed to purchase tickets last year when the first pre-sale lottery opened, and the situation this year is expected to be just as competitive.

Additionally, in response to strong requests for premiere tickets, a limited number of VIP Premium Package tickets will be available for 300,000 yen per seat – a record price for a dinner show by a Japanese artist. The ticket guarantees a stage front table and a photo shoot with YOSHIKI by a professional photographer.

The dinner shows also serve as fund-raising events for his 501(c)(3) charity organization Yoshiki Foundation America, which gives aid to mental health organizations and disaster relief efforts across the world.

Visitors from overseas are increasing year by year because of YOSHIKI’s active role on the world stage. In 2023, YOSHIKI made his directorial debut with the documentary YOSHIKI: Under the Sky and became the first Japanese artist to be honored with a hand and footprint ceremony at the TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood. In 2024, his high-fashion brand MAISON YOSHIKI PARIS opened Milan Fashion Week, and he was recently awarded with Variety magazine’s prestigious International Achievement in Music. In April, he captivated audiences worldwide with his performance of the U.S. national anthem at Dodger Stadium, home to Japanese baseball stars Shohei Ohtani and Yoshinobu Yamamoto.

The pre-sale lottery is available now for YOSHIKI Rakuten Card holders, followed by opportunities for YOSHIKI Visa/Mastercard holders, YOSHIKI Mobile, new platform Yoshiki+, YOSHIKI CHANNEL members, foreign residents, and TEAM YOSHIKI members.

YOSHIKI will celebrate the tenth anniversary of his annual dinner shows, which have been held 75 times since their launch in 2014. The show garners attention each year as “the world’s most luxurious dinner show” featuring an exclusive performance and banter by YOSHIKI, souvenirs including Y by YOSHIKI wine, and a full-course meal curated by the artist. The show also includes a YOSHIKIMONO fashion show, a ballet performance, a charity auction of the artist’s personal items, and a collaborative performance with yoshikitty. The highlight of the show again this year will be YOSHIKI’s walkabout through the audience and the curtain call allowing fans to get close to the artist and directly show their appreciation.

YOSHIKI will be focusing on music composition and his health this year and will not be holding his traditional autumn classical concerts. The dinner show will be his first and final solo show for 2024.

This press conference was YOSHIKI’s first public appearance since his health troubles and hospitalization in Tokyo in late April. He told reporters that he collapsed after returning from overseas and was unable to sleep on his own.

YOSHIKI said, “I was diagnosed with general malaise and sleep disorders caused by extreme fatigue and stress,” he recalled. “I also learned in the hospital that I was suffering from malnutrition. Fortunately, thanks to the help of many wonderful doctors, I am now on my way to recovery. The best thing would really have been to take a break from my career, but that would be even more stressful for me. In the end, my doctors said that I should be fine as long as I got enough rest, so I’ve been resuming my activities little by little.” On a humorous note, he revealed that while he was in the hospital, he asked if he could put a piano with a mute system in his room, but he was told that would take away the whole point of the hospitalization, which had the reporters laughing.

YOSHIKI spoke enthusiastically about the upcoming dinner shows. “I want to give audiences a special experience that would be impossible in an arena or stadium, something only a small venue can provide. I always try to challenge myself at dinner shows, like announcing new songs or fashion designs. I want everyone to get the total experience of the show. I want fans to enjoy the classical element like the great dinner with wine and champagne, and the rock element like fashion. I’m being careful to pace myself in my preparations so that I’m in good shape for the shows.”

Sampling the planned dessert menu for the show at the photo session, he was asked his impression. “I feel like my blood sugar count went through the roof,” he laughed.

YOSHIKI further announced the launch of his innovative fan community platform “YOSHIKI+ (Plus)”. In addition to priority reservations for competitive concert tickets, fans will be able to access AI and YOSHIKI Channel content.

In addition, YOSHIKI announced a world tour for his band THE LAST ROCKSTARS, scheduled for spring 2025, including performances in Japan, Asia, North America, Central and South America, and Europe.

YOSHIKI also revealed that the music of X JAPAN and YOSHIKI will begin streaming on major international platforms starting July 2024, giving even more fans around the world access to the singer’s music.

yoshikitty, a Hello Kitty character modeled after YOSHIKI, made its US debut at an exhibition held in Hollywood from May 16 to August 31 upon the request of JAPAN HOUSE Los Angeles. YOSHIKI has been appointed as official advisor to JAPAN HOUSE by the Japanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs and has continued to be involved in its cultural projects since its opening in 2018.
