This week in GACKT-land...
Welcome to the first Week in Review and CAGS of 2016!!
♥News♥16 EXTRA LAST VISUALIVE DATES ANNOUNCED!!
It’s been seven years since ‘VISUALIVE ARENA TOUR 2009 REQUIEM ET REMINISCENCE II ～Chinkon to Saisei～’, GACKT’s last ‘VISUALIVE’ concept tour.
It is a one and only, unique concert made by GACKT that combines movies, performance and music.
Already, many of the 25 shows have sold out, so 16 more shows have been added!
For full details of the new dates, check out the OGYD entry here - http://ohgacktyoudidnt.livejournal.com/601522.html
As always, ticket sales discussions are here - http://ohgacktyoudidnt.livejournal.com/587772.html
There are some tickets for sale in there, so if you're looking for tickets check it out!
While GACKT has been abroad recording, YOU has also been doing some recording but his recording is the soundtrack for the play 'Honganji'. The production company behind it is the same one that supported MOON SAGA, so there is a lot of staff cross-over between the two.
The guy with YOU is Yuzuru Jinma, who handles all of GACKT's orchestra arrangements - including the two concerts with the Tokyo Philharmonic.( +5Collapse )YOU Facebook
It appears that GACKT was house hunting in Kuala Lumpur this week.So I told my Japanese client that I was showing a house to another client which is also Japanese by the name of Gackt, I thought maybe they knew each other since they were both Japanese... my client then immediately told me " you better take a picture with him! " I was like errrrr ok! Little did I know, the guy standing beside me in the picture is a Japanese icon that holds the male soloist record for most top ten consecutive singles in Japan music history, he's even had involvement with the Final Fantasy franchise & made a movie that was screened at the Cannes Film Festival.. Wow, speechless! #Gackt

GACKT tweeted this week and received lots of good press for how nicely he handled the loss of his winning streak at Kakuzuke Check due to the incorrect answers of his partners. He also, as promised, updated his Twitter icon.

Spelling mistakes belong to GACKT...Morning babies. How are you doing? I have a sore muscle pain now. But it makes me feel getting stronger and got a good start 2016. Rehearsals for LASTVIDUALIVE will start soon. Kick my ass!! WooHa!
My body hurts, but that's okay. Hurting is a good start. Can only get better. Soon, the VISUALIVE will start.
