On the day of Yoshiki’s birthday, November 20, he released the first teaser of its YouTube Originals series “YOSHIKI: UNDER THE SKY”. This special will premiere on Yoshiki’s official YouTube channel on December 23, 20:00 JST.

We will soon be able to watch the long-awaited YouTube Originals that have Yoshiki from X Japan in the center, a global livestream music documentary special titled “YOSHIKI: UNDER THE SKY”, featuring world-renowned artists like Marilyn Manson, HYDE, Sugizo, SixTONES, The Chainsmokers, and more.

The project took a lot of effort to put together and despite all the obstacles Yoshiki and the team had to face, they made it happen with “maximum care and love for everyone”. It’s currently still in its last phase—in terms of the final cut—but expect to see it on Yoshiki’s official YouTube channel on December 23, 20:00 JST.

For you eager fans, the short but sweet trailer is up so you can get a hint of what to expect from it.


Yoshiki also shared his thought on the documentary:

I’m so honored to be collaborating with Marilyn Manson, The Chainsmokers, St. Vincent, Nicole Scherzinger, Sugizo, Hyde, Jane Zhang, Lindsey Stirling, SixTONES, Scorpions, Sarah Brightman and artists soon to be announced. I can’t thank them enough for sharing their talent and creativity for this special event.

We as artists only exist because of our fans. Together with amazing friends, I want to lift people’s spirits. Even though we faced obstacle after obstacle as you see in the film, we made it happen with maximum care and love for everyone. We’re still in the middle of everything in terms of the final cut, but very excited that we finally could announce this amazing event. Thanks to fans, friends, staff, YouTube Originals, and everyone involved.
