“I’m sorry everyone, I have to cancel my performance tonight in Mexico… I’m not feeling well.”

YOSHIKI was invited as a special guest by Brightman for the GRAMMY® Award-nominated soprano’s “Starlight Symphony” tour, which began earlier this month with a series of exclusive engagements at the Venetian Resort in Las Vegas before extending to Mexico. YOSHIKI’s standout performance was met with a standing ovation from enthusiastic crowds each night including YOSHIKI’s fans from all over the world.
YOSHIKI posted the announcement on his Twitter account this afternoon, just a few hours after thanking fans in Guadalajara and Monterrey for joining the classical performances earlier this week.
YOSHIKI’s announcement comes after a non-stop international touring and promotion schedule in the past month, with multiple trips to the U.S., Japan, Mexico, and Europe, involving 28 classical performances in three countries, the sold-out launch of Y by Yoshiki x Champagne Pommery, numerous television appearances, and hosting his top-rated competition talent series YOSHIKI SUPERSTAR PROJECT X.
It is unclear if YOSHIKI will be able to appear at his upcoming scheduled performances including Japan at this time.
