FUSE TV - X Japan's Yoshiki Talks Playing Wembley, Comeback Album, Babymetal & More

For most artists, playing your biggest-ever arena concert in Europe would be enough. And for a smaller amount artists, playing said concert and doing a meet-and-greet after the show would truly put them at their limit. 

Yet here is Yoshiki of X Japan finally sitting down with Fuse at nearly 1:00am after he and his band played a three-plus-hour concert at England's famous Wembley Arena, held a meet-and-greet with a truckload of fans, sat down to speak to Japanese reporters in town, held an on-camera interview with Reuters, and is now getting a chance to relax and talk with only a crew member recording our chat with a handheld video camera.

X Japan's Wembley show was delayed by nearly a year, but once it was finished, it was clear the band's frontman and superstar drummer Yoshiki was overwhelmed with gratitude and happiness. Read on for what the 51-year-old had to say about the show, the band's upcoming comeback album, international favorites like Babymetal and Perfume, and more.
