X Japan to Appear in Hollywood on January 9

1st U.S. plans after reunion, canceled 2008 tour stop at New York City

BAM! Marketing, Publicity, & Promotions has announced that the X Japan rock group will appear in Hollywood, California on January 9 for one night only. More details will be provided "soon." The group had planned to make a New York tour stop in 2008 before canceling those plans.

X Japan's most notable anime contributions were the songs in the music video collection and later X movie. The animation studio Madhouse adapted both productions from CLAMP's X manga. The surviving band members — Toshimitsu "Toshi" Deyama, Yoshiki Hayashi, Tomoaki "Pata" Ishizuka, and Hiroshi "Heath" Morie — reunited in 2007, ten years after they first disbanded and nine years after the death of guitarist Hideto "Hide" Matsumoto.

Update: More background information added.
