X Japan Making U.S. Return With 2014 NYC Concert + Comic Con Appearance

X Japan are coming back to the U.S. this fall for a very special performance at New York’s Madison Square Garden. The Japanese hard rock heroes have booked the legendary venue for an Oct. 11 show, with tickets set to go on sale tomorrow (Aug. 1) via Ticketmaster.

The Madison Square Garden concert marks a significant milestone for the band, who made their U.S. debut in New York with a Rockafeller Center press conference over 20 years ago. A trailer for the upcoming show can be seen above.

The performance is being sponsored by the New York Comic Con, who have invited the band to appear at the convention. Yoshiki himself will join Marvel Comics founder Stan Lee on a panel where they’ll discuss their collaborations, including the comic based on Yoshiki titled ‘Blood Red Dragon.’

It’s all part of New York Super Week, which will include concerts, comedy shows, gaming events, lectures, podcasts, storytelling, food tastings and more. New York Super Week runs Oct. 3-12 leading into the New York Comic Con.
