Japanese rock star and classical composer YOSHIKI announced on Twitter today the
sudden cancellation of his performance with Sarah Brightman scheduled for tonight
(October 21) in Puebla, Mexico.

“I’m sorry everyone, I have to cancel my performance tonight in Mexico… I’m not feeling
– YOSHIKI Official Twitter:

YOSHIKI was invited as a special guest composer/pianist by Brightman for the
GRAMMY® Award-nominated soprano’s “Starlight Symphony” tour, which began earlier
this month with a series of exclusive engagements at the Venetian Theatre in Las
Vegas before extending to Mexico. YOSHIKI’s standout performance was met with a
standing ovation from enthusiastic crowds each night including YOSHIKI’s fans from all
over the world.

YOSHIKI posted the announcement on his Twitter account this afternoon, just a few
hours after thanking fans in Guadalajara and Monterrey for joining the classical
performances earlier this week.

YOSHIKI’s announcement comes after a non-stop international touring and promotion
schedule in the past month, with multiple trips to the U.S., Japan, Mexico, and Europe,
involving 28 classical performances in three countries, promotion of his successful Real
Gold X/Y energy drinks with Coca-Cola, the sold-out launch of Y by Yoshiki x
Champagne Pommery, numerous television appearances, and his top-rated competition

It is unclear if YOSHIKI will be able to appear at his upcoming scheduled performances
including Japan at this time.
