X Japan hasn’t slowed down in the new year, they are set to perform at the Asia Girls Explosion fashion event at the Yoyogi National Gymnasium on March 6. They are going to perform their US single: Jade (comes out March 15th). They are also going to preform Scarlet Love Song – which is being featured on the animated film: Tezuka Osamu no Buddha -Akai Sabaku yo! Utsukushiku- (we talked about that over here).
Yoshiki has already stated that his new brand YOSHIKIMONO will premiere here at the event. The brand is a collaboration with Tokyo Girls Collection producer Jay FR. On top of that, the special guest appearance has been interesting! Not only will Yoshiki’s Violet UK project perform their first live in Japan with SUGIZO but they also list a few familiar North American faces to model in the event. For those who watch tv: Olivia Palermo (Mtv’s The City) , AnnaLynne McCord (90210), Shenae Grimes (90210, Degrassi), Taylor Momsen (Gossip Girl), Marilyn Manson and many more. Taylor Momsen’s band The Pretty Reckless will also be performing along side X Japan and Violet UK.
