“I usually don’t like summer because I’m a nocturnal creature who dislikes the sun and heat,” said Yoshiki. “But ever since I started this show several years ago, I started to look forward to this season. I’m truly grateful to all my fans who support me. I wish I could have adjusted my schedule to make room for more than 12 shows, but this is the best I can do at this time. I’m looking forward to seeing you all.”
