X Japan vocalist Toshi announced his divorce and separation from the self-development seminar group, "Home of Heart," this week, and will perform a "sayonara show" produced by band leader Yoshiki on Feb 24.
Toshi told reporters at a press conference that details on the location for the show, which would "separate" him from the past, would be announced at a later date.
On Tuesday night, Yoshiki posted a comment on his official mobile phone website saying, "I hope we can support Toshi from both close and afar... Now and in the future, our feelings for him won't change."
Toshi's wife Kaori, 40, whom he is currently in the process of divorcing, posted on her own blog a cryptic message that said, "To become a ladder for someone important, to get covered in mud for the one you love.. that's enough."© Japan Today
