X Japan to Play at Lollapalooza

While X Japan appeared in southern California less than a year ago to film a music video, they will be returning from August 6 - 8 in Chicago for Lollapalooza. This marks the first time the band will play live for U.S. audiences, which will surely be a treat for American fans who haven't traveled to see the group live. For tickets or more information, check out Lollapalooza's official website here.
