YOSHIKI Performed [Forever Love] at a Sumo Wrestler's Wedding Ceremony

2010-02-23
music / X JAPAN

YOSHIKI recently performed the X JAPAN classic [Forever Love] together with violinists at the Wedding of Sumo Wrestler Yokozuna Hakuhouzeki on February 21st.

After 5 o'clock in the afternoon he was introduced as [The friend from X JAPAN, YOSHIKI, who left hurriedly from L.A.] and a number of cheering voices could be heard from the place.

A special stage had been put up from which he greeted the bride and groom. [Hakuhouzeki, Ms Sayoko, all my congratulations to you. This song is my present from me to you.] An uproar went through the crowd, which had gathered around the stage for a moment, when YOSHIKI had sat down in front of the piano. As YOSHIKI performed the song together with a quartet of violinists, the newly wedded couple was visibly moved.

After the performance the two of them also went up on stage to YOSHIKI to also take a commemoration photo shooting while shaking hands with him. In 1998 the groom had been an avid fan ever since the introduction to X JAPAN through his sister and the bride, certainly has now become a fan as well, if her cell phone ring tone of [Forever Love] is any indication

The cristal piano, on which YOSHIKI played at the wedding was also the one he had been using during the last years performance at the concert in TOKYO DOME.
