The critically acclaimed documentary “WE ARE X”, about the Japanese rock phenomenon X Japan is hitting its theatrical release across Europe this October! Not only that; Yoshiki, the drummer and leader of X Japan, is setting out on a promotional tour to accompany the special screenings of the documentary along with Q&A sessions for the audience.
We have already reported earlier on a Q&A session and screening of the documentary in Sweden on October 19; the show is now sold out! Because of high demand, another time slot was added for the Swedish fans! But now, to make it even better, more dates and locations have popped out which stretches across Europe!

By Yoshiki’s own words:
I am very excited to come to Europe this October and bring the extraordinary story of X Japan to new and old fans alike. This was a difficult film for us to make but it’s a story we believe needed to be told. I can’t wait for Europe to finally see the film and to meet our European fans.
