X Japan Booking Agency Profile

Book X Japan for your next corporate event, function, or private party.
A pioneer of the Japanese rock culture, X Japan is recognized as the most successful rock group in Japanese history. Drummer, pianist, and composer Yoshiki has been leading the band since it’s inception in 1982. Among the band’s success, they’ve sold out the 55,000-seat Tokyo Dome 18 times and have sold more than 30 million albums, singles, and videos combined. X Japan is also credited for starting the visual kei movement among the Japanese music scene. Their rock glam aesthetic can best be described by their slogan, “Psychedelic Violence Crime of Visual Shock”. The band’s music can be characterized by its speed and power metal compositions, but there are also hints of symphonic elements and emotional ballads throughout their musical history. X Japan has been included in HMV Japan’s list of the 100 most important Japanese pop acts. The band released a documentary titled, ‘We Are X’, which won an award at the Sundance Film festival and was released in over 20 countries. When the soundtrack for the documentary was released it peaked at No.1 on the UK Rock Chart..

CTI can give you the accurate X Japan booking price once we submit your event details to their camp. "How much does it cost to book X Japan for an event?" is a frequent question we get, but the final X Japan booking price is contingent on many variables and the booking fee we may show is based on a range derived from our past experience with what will X Japan charge for an event. One example fee to book X Japan is in the starting range of $500,000-$749,000. Also, their speaking fee might be different than the fee shown for the cost to perform or to just appear. Popularity, career stage, along with current demand will cause fluctuations in their speaking price too. The final booking price may be more than what is shown, but you should at least have a budget within that range for them to consider an appearance, performance or speaking engagement.
CTI negotiates on behalf of professional event planners and talent buyers for paid appearances! We cannot give out direct contact information of the X Japan agent or help distribute fan mail, personal messages, gifts, requests for free appearances, or donations of time. The X Japan manager and agent will only work with us if we present them with funded offers for their client to work your event.
There is low probability to book X Japan for a party with anything substantially less than the published booking cost price range. We will negotiate with the X Japan agent on your behalf, but if your funding is not in place then it will more difficult to book X Japan, because they get many offers to work events that are at or above asking price. It is also important to consider the travel costs when researching the X Japan booking fee, as additional expenses like this, as well as an entourage of staff and equipment, are not necessarily built-in to the booking fee range shown. If your budget does not factor that in, then there is no benefit for them to want to be hired. We do not personally speak for X Japan, but in our experience in booking talent for over 25 years, this is generally the outcome of inadequate funding.
