It took a while for Otakon to come out with details regarding musical performances, but the wait was no doubt worth it for fans of X Japan. Otakon recently announced that members Yoshiki and Sugizo will be appearing to perform during this year’s Masquerade.
Barring a ten year period of group inactivity, X Japan has been in the game in one form or another since 1982. Yoshiki is one of the founding members.
Their performance comes in the form of a “brief, intimate, acoustic set,” taking place a week prior to X Japan’s full-on appearance at Lollapalooza in Chicago. In addition to the music, Masquerade will also feature a moderated Q&A session with the rockers.
More info about the pair and their appearance can be found on the full press release. Otakon takes place at the Baltimore Convention Center from July 30 to August 1, 2010.
