Yoshiki on his decision to tour:

 “Last year in May I lost my mother.  At that time, I couldn’t do anything.  I had to cancel my live TV shows, and I actually went to see a doctor, The tears kept coming for days.  Then I started composing this song called ‘Requiem’.  I thought I should move forward; I shouldn’t give up.  To move forward and to really thank my fans who supported me, I decided to do this tour.”

New single ‘Requiem,’ will be released on the 21st July.
