HFPA VISIT YOSHIKI’S WORLD TOUR REHEARSAL

For the first time Yoshiki is touring as a classical pianist with a six-string orchestra and vocalist, to, as he says, “express my softer side.”

The ten country tour takes in London, Paris, Berlin, Moscow, Beijing, Shanghai and several North American cities.
