I.1-8: Interviewer 1-8
Y: YOSHIKI

I.1: Hello, Yoshiki. I was in the Tokyo Dome…
Y: Yeah, I can tell *points at X JAPAN t-short interviewer’s wearing*

I.1: Yeah, I’ve told you changed my life, yes.
Y: *laugh*

I.1: Today I’m… it’s really my dreams come true. When I was a secondary student, this is the first album, I bought. *shows the cover of X JAPAN’s album*
Y: Oh my God, “Jealousy”. Yeah.

I.1: About 17 years ago. Once when I was a child I’ve dreamt you’d come to Hong-Kong. Now you announced two days and the band. This is very-very exciting.
Y: Thank you, I’m very excited.

I.1: Yes, I’ve been in Japan in Tokyo Dome and I’ve seen the stage…
Y: uhm

I.1: It was very great. *in Japanese:* Watashi wa bikkuri..mashita.
Y: Hai.

I.1: So the stage – is it your idea about the construction of the stage? It’s very huge.
Y: Yes. The entire concept is my idea, but small details… I had so many advisors and supporters and so many people working on this, yeah.

I.1: So what about this depending Hong Kong, the stage – is it the same as Tokyo dome was?
Y: I’ll try to do that, try to match the impact, but we have to vary together … the venue size and everything so Tokyo Dome might be little bigger, so we’ll not be able to bring everything but try to have the same impact what we … .

I.2: Yoshiki, welcome to Hong Kong. I am so glad that you recovered and now thank you for the world tour. So how is everyone, how’re your other members? And when are you going to rehearse for the tour?
Y:
OK. So I just… couple days ago I’ve talked to Toshi, Heath and Pata. Yeah, they are doing fine; they are very excited as well. When I’ll start rehearsing… when I’ll start rehearse… *thinks* …very soon, yeah. I still kind of recover from the injury so… yeah. *points at his neck* may be next month or so. Yeah, ‘cause our first show of world tour… well I mean in France… November 22nd this year.

I.2: So soon will be rehearsing?
Y:
Yes.

I.3: Hi Yoshiki. Are you happy with three concerts held in Tokyo Dome and do you think you’ve played the concerts very well?
Y:
Tokyo Dome?

I.3: Yes.
Y:
Yes and no. Ah… It was great to… ah… meet, you know, new fans, old fans. That was the best thing happened in past ten years, but… ah… we… I don’t know, our condition was not perfect, so for the world tour I think we can perform better so… yeah.

I.4: Do you think that before the tours… will you have something special to prepare? Will you do something prepare for yourself?
Y:
Yes, because I haven’t recovered 100%. So I’m doing a lot of work to have strong… I have to create strong body for the world tour. Ah… also… it’s the first time… I should come to think of it! X JAPAN never performed outside of Japan, it’s the first time. So we have to prepare mentally. *smile* But I’m not have success for… ‘cause I’m just doing to Taiwan. Last year I went to Paris. I just came here you and I met those fans. It’s gonna be… ah… I .. *quietly:* how to say? Yeah… and I feel like I can do a great concert, because our concert we create together, not only X JAPAN’s members, so we create with fans, so it’s gonna be great.

I.5: Hi Yoshiki. Do you have more X JAPAN new songs? You’ve mentioned before at the press-conference, you’re composing some new songs…
Y:
Yes.

I.5: …and preparing your new album. This is very exciting for us.
Y:
Yes, because before the Tokyo Dome shows, or not – before we united I didn’t know… because I haven’t seen Toshi, the vocalist, for a long time. He was doing some kind of healing music, like very soft music. So I didn’t know if he could scream hard or not, so… But after we did the united concert in Tokyo Dome, so I realize he can do even better. *laugh* So our new songs gonna be pretty hard, I think. Yeah.

I.6: And how about the album? When would the date of releasing? Will it be soon, this year?
Y:
I would say… early next year.

I.7: (...) question in Chinese
Y:
Yes. I would  try to …. promotion in Los Angeles, but progressed to try here.

I.8: (…) question in Chinese
Y: Yes. Because even though we’re touring so many places, performing in so many places, for some audience that’s a one time show. So I use entire of my energy for the each show, yes.
