THE LAST ROCKSTARS, comprised of four of Japan’s biggest rock stars – YOSHIKI, HYDE, SUGIZO, and MIYAVI – are adding a second show at New York’s Hammerstein Ballroom on February 3rd, due to overwhelming demand.
The announcement follows the group’s world wide reveal last month, where they announced a series of "Live Debut" shows scheduled for early 2023 in Tokyo, New York, and Los Angeles. Tickets are still available for New York’s Hammerstein Ballroom and Los Angeles’ Hollywood Palladium shows.
The four legendary rock musicians announced the formation of THE LAST ROCKSTARS on November 11th on stage in Tokyo in what they call a race against time to preserve the spirit of rock music. The idea to join together came organically according to all members, with the goal to “make the world rock” in the New Year. The group has been collaborating on writing songs, with highly anticipated new music scheduled for release in December 2022 ahead of the tour.
YOSHIKI, who plays the drums and piano, is the new group’s leader. HYDE will take vocals, and MIYAVI, famously known as the“samurai guitarist,” will bring his slap-style guitar playing to the group. SUGIZO will round out the band on guitar.
“We’ve come together to start this challenge for the world out of Japan,” YOSHIKI of X JAPAN told reporters at the press conference on November 11th.
“This may be our last chance at this challenge,”SUGIZO said. “We want to put what’s left of our lives on the line to make the world rock with our music.”
Tickets for New York’s second Hammerstein Ballroom show are scheduled to go on sale this Friday, December 16th at 10am EST. For further information, please visit LiveNation.com.
