X Japan has announced that they will play a set at this year’s Coachella Music Festival. The legendary music event will take place on April 14 and 21 in Indio, California. They’ll play alongside global superstars like Beyonce, Eminem, A Perfect Circle, The Weekend, and David Byrne.
“But wait, I thought Yoshiki had surgery and couldn’t play drums?” You are correct…and incorrect. Yoshiki made his recovery debut on Japan’s New Year’s Special TV program Kouhaku Utagassen. It most likely wasn’t on doctor’s orders, but if you know Yoshiki at all, you know that he tends to sacrifice a lot for his music. He’s got a few more months to work up to Coachella, at least.
Check the official Coachella website for details on the venue, tickets, lineup, and more.
