On Saturday, March 4th, X JAPAN performed their first major show of 2017 on #XDAY at the SSE Arena, Wembley, following the release of their feature film documentary "We Are X" in theaters across the UK. The "We Are X" soundtrack (featuring the theme song La Venus) was released worldwide on March 3rd on Sony Music’s Legacy Recordings, taking the #1 spot in nine countries on iTunes as well as the #1 position on the UK Rock nd Metal Chart, Top 30 on the UK Albums Chart, and #3 on the UK Soundtrack Chart.

The award-winning "We Are X" made its UK premiere to a sold-out audience at Piccadilly’s Picture House in London on February 28th before launching in UK theaters across the country on March 2nd, adding to the excitement of the band’s upcoming show two days later at Wembley Arena. Fulfilling the band’s promise to return to the UK after last year’s concert had been abruptly cancelled by guitarist PATA’s serious illness, the band held a special CD-signing event at HMV in London on March 3rd, forcing the shut-down of Oxford Street as over 1000 fans gathered to meet the members of X JAPAN in person.

X JAPAN has created a buzz among UK fans and critics alike with last week’s back-to-back concert, film, and soundtrack events, promising more announcements later this year.

The "We Are X" soundtrack is available for purchase at:
