TCL Chinese Theatre Announces Special Ceremony to Unveil YOSHIKI's Handprints and Footprints

YOSHIKI's cement handprints and footprints will be unveiled at a special ceremony in Hollywood on January 9th, and his film "YOSHIKI: Under the Sky” will begin streaming on Amazon Prime Video later this year.

In September 2023, YOSHIKI became the first Japanese artist to add his handprints and footprints to the TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood. Recently, it was announced that a special ceremony will be held to unveil the tablet featuring his imprints on January 9th.

The event will be open to the public as YOSHIKI's tablet is permanently placed in the theatre's forecourt at 6925 Hollywood Blvd on January 9th at 11:00 am. A special area will be set up directly in front of the Chinese Theatre so fans can get up close to see YOSHIKI.

YOSHIKI is one of just over 300 artists in the nearly 100-year history of the Chinese Theatre to receive this honor. He was selected as "one of the most influential musicians and composers in Japanese history" and in recognition of his achievements in music, fashion, and film over the last 30 years, as well as for his continued philanthropic efforts.

In addition, it has been revealed that YOSHIKI's directorial debut film “YOSHIKI: Under the Sky” will begin streaming through Magnolia Home Entertainment under their Magnet Label on TVOD in March 2024 and SVOD in May 2024 on Amazon Prime Video.

“YOSHIKI: Under the Sky” gathers a diverse collection of international artists for “an emotional journey through the pain of losing loved ones and uniting globally through the healing power of music”. Shot in Germany, Beijing, Tokyo, and LA, the film features interviews and performances from American artists The Chainsmokers, St. Vincent, Nicole Scherzinger and Lindsey Stirling, German rock band Scorpions, English singer Sarah Brightman, Chinese singer-songwriter Jane Zhang, and Japanese artists HYDE, SUGIZO and SixTONES.

Produced by Emmy Award winners Sid Ganis and Mark Ritchie, along with consulting producer Stephen Kijak, the film was conceived during the pandemic when musicians could not connect with their fans. “YOSHIKI: Under the Sky” premiered in New York, Tokyo, London, and Los Angeles, followed by showings in over 130 theaters in the U.S., Europe, and Japan.

A trailer for “YOSHIKI: Under the Sky” can be viewed below, followed by footage of YOSHIKI performing with The Chainsmokers and Scorpions from the film.
