X Japan performed a partial piano-and-vocal-only version of “La Venus” in October at the Visual Japan Summit, which brought in 10,000 fans over 3 days to the festival headlined by X Japan, GLAY, and Luna Sea. NHK SONGS will present the world premiere performance of the complete track featuring the entire band. Yoshiki commented that even he couldn’t remember the last time the band had performed an in-studio live concert.
NHK SONGS will also show exclusive video of Yoshiki’s live solo performance at IDFA Amsterdam during the film festival’s screening of We Are X in November, including an interview with the X Japan leader who discusses the band’s dramatic history, his upcoming Carnegie Hall performance in January, and his strong drive to bring Japanese music to the world.
