Yoshiki to donate special drum set for charity auction as 5-year commemoration of the Great Japan Earthquake and Tsunami

TH STAFF
YOSHIKI

On March 11 Japan local time, X Japan's leader Yoshiki donated his premier special�

edition of signature TAMA drum set for a charity auction to commemorate Japan's 5 year�

memorial of the Great East Earthquake and Tsunami in 2011. (*see below for details)




The drum set will include Yoshiki's autographed signature drum sticks. If the winner�

resides in Japan and is able to pick up the item in Tokyo, Yoshiki will personally hand them�

over to the winner, and they will be granted a photo op with Yoshiki.


This charity auction is presented by Yoshiki Foundation America, a 501(c)(3) organization,�and will be hosted by Yahoo Auction Japan. The online auction will kick off around noon,�Monday, March 14 Japan time and end around 11PM on March 21 Japan local time. This�auction is open to worldwide users and the entire proceeds from the final bid will be�donated to Japan Red Cross for the Great East Japan Earthquake relief fund.


X JAPAN and Yoshiki have continuously done charitable work, including donating musical

instruments and helping build music rooms for children affected by the Kobe Earthquake in�

1995, the 2009 Sichuan earthquake in China, and much more. Yoshiki put his own favorite�

"crystal" piano up for auction in 2011 as well as donating X Japan's entire performance�

fee at one of Japan's biggest summer festivals a-nation to help provide aid for the�

Japanese earthquake and Tsunami. Most recently in 2015, X Japan kicked off their Japan�

Tour at a club size venue in Ishinomaki City, a city that was most severely affected by the�3.11 disaster where they held a charity concert performing to a very small crowd of 150�people. Seventy five tickets were gifted to the selected local fans and the remaining tickets were�auctioned off on a charity auction site, raising 28 million JPY. Proceeds were donated to�Central Community Chest of Japan to help aid the children in need who were affected by�the disaster.


X JAPAN recently announced a suspension of their current performance commitments due�to band member Pata's sudden illness.
