X Japan To Play Madison Square Garden In October

X Japan has announced that tickets for the band's October 11th performance at Madison Square Garden will go on sale this Friday at 10am EDT right here. The Madison Square Garden event is sponsored by New York Comic Con.

X Japan, led by co-founder, drummer, pianist and songwriter Yoshiki, will return to New York City for a first performance since 2010, playing both fan favorites and previously unreleased music from the band's decades of recordings.

The Madison Square Garden concert marks a significant milestone for the band, which made it's U.S. debut with a Rockafeller Center press conference over 20 years ago. The group is now finally fulfilling the promise made to the fans to return.

X Japan has since toured 16 countries, sold over 30 million albums and singles combined, and sold out Japan's 55,000 seat Tokyo Dome a record-setting 18 times. The band has had a notoriously tumultuous career, even among the world of rock, including the loss of two of its five founding members to tragic death.

In line with October's Madison Square Garden concert, Yoshiki and X Japan will appear at New York Comic Con, where Yoshiki will participate in a panel with Marvel Comics founder Stan Lee and discuss the pair's collaborations, including the comic based on Yoshiki, "Blood Red Dragon."
