Language: The speech and Q & A will be in English. Simultaneous interpretation in Japanese will be provided for Japanese journalists in the press conference room.


The world's best-selling soprano, Sarah Brightman, has a huge following in Japan. She recently released an album titled Hymn, and her touching rendition of the British national anthem "God Save the Queen", with Alfie Boe and the National Health Services Voices of Care Choir, received critical claim during the pandemic. She is currently in Japan to meet fans and make what promises to be a special announcement. 

Rock star and fashion icon YOSHIKI has been described by Billboard Magazine as "one of the most influential musicians and composers in Japanese history." His band X Japan has sold over 30 million albums and singles and he has performed at Madison Square Garden, Wembley Arena, Carnegie Hall and the world’s great concert halls. YOSHIKI is also involved in philanthropy through his YOSHIKI Foundation.

FCCJ invites you to an exclusive conversation bringing two of the brightest stars in different genres talk about their common love of music.
