Memorial concerts for X Japan guitarist hide to be held
Two memorial concerts for the late X Japan guitarist hide, who committed suicide in 1998, will be held in Ajinomoto Stadium in Tokyo on May 3 and 4. Current X Japan members and several groups and artists, such as LUNA SEA, T.M. Revolution and DJ OZMA, will take part in the two-day event.
Yoshiki, X Japan leader, said, “We couldn’t have the memorial concert 10 years ago because we were too depressed. But this time, we’d like to have an enjoyable festival without tears as a tribute to hide.”
After hide died on May 2, 1998, some fans committed suicide as well.
