Popular rock band X Japan is looking to make a serious debut in the United States, having been officially invited to participate in outdoor music festival Lollapalooza 2010. This will be the achievement of a long-time dream of the band since their debut in 1989.
The band said in a statement that they are currently working on their first album in 14 years, with leader Yoshiki declaring, "We'll be performing the new songs at Lollapalooza."
Lollapalooza is one of the world's largest music festivals, and will be held this year from Aug 6 to 8 at Chicago's Grant Park. X Japan received the offer directly from the event's organizers, and will be the only Japanese artists to perform.© Japan Today
