One of Asia’s most influential artists, Yoshiki, has not only launched Yoshiki Classical – an album of new compositions (which just so happen to be of the classical persuasion) – but he’s also announced that he’ll be touring the world with the said compositions! And us lucky lot in London shall be able to experience them live on 29 May at the Royal Festival Hall. Tickets are on sale now, ranging between £30-£75. We’d recommend you book them using the venue’s site (by clicking here), as it allows you to choose exactly where you’ll be situated.
Known as the founder of Japan’s biggest rock band, X Japan, and credited as the creator of the flamboyant visual kei rock sub-genre, Yoshiki is a world-renowned classically trained multi-instrumentalist, composer and musician.
The long awaited album Yoshiki Classical was released worldwide towards the end of 2013 and met with a tremendous response. It sees collaborations between Yoshiki and legendary Beatles producer Sir George Martin, the London Philharmonic Orchestra and the Quartet San Francisco. Yoshiki Classical debuted at #1 on the iTunes Classical Music chart in 10 countries around the world and also saw a Top 10 debut in four countries.
