On May 23rd, YOSHIKI's official NicoNico channel 'YOSHIKI CHANNEL' and GACKT's official NicoNico channel 'OH!!MY!!GACKT!!' will collaborate for a NicoNico live broadcast!

yoshiki.jpg

It is the first time in 11 years that GACKT and YOSHIKI have appeared on a broadcast together, and the first time they've appeared on a live broadcast together.

Broadcast Details
May 23rd, 2016

Part 1 - free (everyone can view)
21:45 ~ information from YOSHIKI CHANNEL
22:00 ~ GACKT's appearance starts
URL: http://live.nicovideo.jp/watch/lv261023988

Part 2 - exclusive to members of YOSHIKI CHANNEL
22:30 ~
URL: http://live.nicovideo.jp/watch/lv261008773

Part 3 - exclusive to members of OH!!MY!!GACKT!!
23:00 ~
URL: http://live.nicovideo.jp/watch/lv261022347

The news articles promoting this broadcast are highlighting not only GACKT and YOSHIKI's personal friendship, but their work together in 2007 as part of S.K.I.N. - the supergroup YOSHIKI and GACKT formed along with SUGIZO and MIYAVI. The subject of S.K.I.N. is expected to be addressed, and the articles are even suggesting that the band could be restarted...

This is GACKT and YOSHIKI's last broadcast appearance together, from May 30th, 2005...



And a little bit extra that was screened on a later show.



There are quite a few fancams of S.K.I.N.'s one and only live show in LA on YouTube.



I guess we'll find out if there's any truth to the S.K.I.N. thing, or if it's just rumors to drum up viewing figures on May 23rd :D

There are some new goods for the LAST VISUALIVE! The goods are already on sale at the online store, and will be added to the goods line up at the venues from May 3rd, in Osaka.

Some of these are very GACKTCollapse )

Yesterday, April 25th, marked the 17th anniversary of GACKT's solo debut. He had a LAST VISUALIVE show in Fukuoka, and during his MC there was a surprise celebration. He was interrupted by Mizerable being played, and a congratulations message was shown on the back video screen. The band and dancers presented him with flowers and a cake.

YOU and Yuki Kimisawa shared a couple of photos from the show.

Yuki also posted a cute blog, where he spoke about remembering batting practice during his junior high school baseball club days while hearing Mizerable play.

GACKT's friend, professional tennis player Ayaka Okuno attended the show and joined in with the pre-show training.

Due to the recent earthquake in Kumamoto, the LAST VISUALIVE show that was scheduled for Kumamoto on June 15th has been canceled. The venue it was scheduled to happen in sustained damage in the earthquake, so the show can't go ahead. People who had tickets for Kumamoto can exchange them for the other Kyushu dates in Miyazaki (June 17th), Fukuoka (June 19th), or for an additional tour date in Kagoshima on June 21st. Refunds are also available.

Today, April 19th, GACKT performed a guerrilla live outside Shinjuku station in Tokyo. He performed two songs - ARROW and RIDE OR DIE. It was broadcast live on NicoNico, and around 2,000 fans were in attendance (plus many passersby).

During a short MC, he explained that he had collaborated with Nestle to make a GACKT model Gold Blend Barista coffee machine. After speaking to the staff and president at Nestle Japan, it was decided that all proceeds from sales of the GACKT Barista would go to help those in Kyushu affected by the recent earthquakes.

The GACKT Barista is a limited run of 1000 machines, and is currently sold out.

On Tuesday, GACKT was a guest on the TV show Kayou Surprise.

He was in Nagoya, and the aim of the program was to find nice places to eat, but without having a reservation or giving the restaurants prior notice that a camera crew would be arriving. What places did GACKT choose? Did they let him and the camera crew in?

Screen Shot 2016-03-30 at 12.49.25 AM.png

You can watch the show in full here > http://www.miomio.tv/watch/cc265178/ (GACKT's part starts at 42 minutes)

Yesterday (Thursday), GACKT was a guest on the spring special of Gurunai.

In this show, the guests can order freely from the menu and try to spend as close to 40,000 yen as possible. The menu has no prices listed, however, so they have to guess the prices and keep a running total. The person who is furthest away from the 40,000 yen target has to pay the bill for everyone. Last time GACKT was on this show was 7 years ago and he came fourth. He wants to do better this time and get revenge on Okamura, who won last time and is also on this show too.

How did GACKT do...?

Screen Shot 2016-03-31 at 11.22.48 PM.png

You can watch the show in full here > http://www.miomio.tv/watch/cc265417/ (GACKT is in the full two hours)

And GACKT will be on KanJam on April 3rd, talking about his favorite love songs and songs that make him cry. He'll also perform ANOTHER WORLD with members of Kanjani 8.

The LAST VISUALIVE tour is continuing. GACKT and the band have now completed five out of the 41 scheduled shows. After many requests, a training video for the song WooHa BABY!! has been posted to YouTube. It's best viewed on a smartphone screen, and of course contains spoilers for the show!



Under the cut are a collection of recent photos!

And finally, GACKT announced that he won't be able to make the LAST VISUALIVE show that is scheduled for Niigata today (Friday) as he will be busy having injections of virgin's blood. Instead, he has arranged for Seito Kaicho to stand in and perform in his place. Kaicho was asked for a comment, but was too busy crying tears of joy into his GACKT body pillow to answer.

Hi bros n sisters. How are you doing? I'm shooting a new music video now. Maybe it will finish around the morning. Awwwww. Anyways, when you have a lot of stress, kick a Mott like this. It's going to leave quickly. Hahaha. Do you understand what I'm doing? If you can kick compactly like this, you can aim your target even you are between narrow walls. Don't swing your legs. Just do it.

All of the tracks are available for streaming at the Nestle site, as 'Koi no FRIDAY!!!' and 'Kimi dake no boku de iru kara' were added today > http://nestle.jp/entertain/g_music/. They're available until April 19th.

Here is a message from GACKT about this month's streaming.



GACKT updated his Instagram about an hour ago with a little clip from dance rehearsals for Kugutsu no Gotoku. So if you don't want to be spoiled, don't watch.



So far, the only images of the covers are on that promo poster up there, I think. I'm sure Amazon etc will have them soon.

What do you think of the tracklisting and the 2 new songs revealed today? I'm glad that Kugutsu no Gotoku is getting the music video, as it's my favorite of the new songs

The international GACKT Fan Club “G&LOVERS” (English version) finally debuted on March 15th !

FC.jpg

We are excited to announce that the international GACKT Fan Club “G&LOVERS” (English version) finally debuted on March 15th!

International members of G&LOVERS can enjoy fully English web contents, online magazines, and are able to access member’s only page and pre-sale tickets, just like Gackt Fan Club members in Japan.

You can check more details from the following link:

▼GACKT OFFICIAL FAN CLUB「G&LOVERS」
URL:https://g-and-lovers.com

GACKT Fan Club “G&LOVERS” provides lots of special membership benefits for his fans around the world.

We are greatly looking forward to you joining “G&LOVERS”!


Source - https://g-and-lovers.com/contents/35446

The site is the same for both the Japanese and International fanclubs, so it appears that if you already have a Japanese membership you don't need to join again to access the English version (and vice versa). You can switch the language at the bottom left of the site.

The price is the same as Japanese members pay:
Annual fee - 6,000 yen
One off enrolment fee - 1,000 yen
So you'll pay 7,000 yen for your first year, and then 6,000 yen every year after that to renew.

At the moment I'm not sure exactly how some of the features are going to work internationally, but I'll guess we'll find out as we go!

Have you joined yet??

Sorry for there being no CAGS/Week in Review this week, it's due to a combination of being busy and being sick

 
 
11 March 2016 @ 12:52 am
GACKT appeared on the TV show Pre-battle tonight.

He appeared on this show previously and took part in a flower arranging challenge against other celebrities. The flower arranging expert on the show ranked GACKT's as the best, so this time he was a "scholarship student" who gave his opinions on a new batch of celebrities as they competed to be the best.

After the competition for the new group of celebrities finished, it was GACKT's turn to make a flower arrangement. The expert then had to decide if it was good enough for GACKT to level up a rank or not...

You can see his result by watching the show here > http://www.miomio.tv/watch/cc262817/ (the first couple of minutes are the show and news that aired immediately before)

GACKT will be on TV again on March 31st for the show 'Guruguru dining - super first class banquet! 2 hour special' (or Gurunai for short).

GACKT first appeared on this show seven years ago, on January 23rd, 2009.



Part 2 is under the cutCollapse )

GACKT will take part in a gochi (banquet) challenge with the other guests. The show gives them a total for their meal, and the guests order from the menu without knowing the prices. Their orders are then totalled, and whoever is furthest from the total the show set has to pay the bill for everyone. When GACKT was on this show last time, he came fourth and so didn't have to pay the bill, but was a little annoyed at losing to show regular Takashi Okamura.

So, GACKT is back to get revenge on Okamura and will be subjecting to him to a round with GACKT's medicine ball, as well as later giving him a kiss.

Three photos have been released to advertise GACKT's appearance on the show. Click on the photos to get them in their full size.
