Last night, if you missed SLAYER‘s ear-bleeding performance on “Late Night w/ Jimmy Fallon,” or the YOSHIKI/X JAPAN feature on “ABC World News w/Diane Sawyer,” you can catch both online!

Yoshiki/X Japan on ABC World News w/Diana Sawyer:
X Japan made its U.S. concert debut at Lollapalooza this past Sunday, and an ABC “World News with Diana Sawyer” crew was there to record the historic event. The Chicago Sun-Times called the band’s performance “a spectacular, almost operatic performance of big ballads and speed metal.” Time Out Chicago’s review thanked Lollapalooza’s co-founder Perry Farrell for booking “the coup of the festival,” and USA Today wrote, “The metal-pop-punk was fast and furious,” describing the drumming of band leader Yoshiki as “Keith Moon on Red Bull.”
X Japan, one of the most successful rock bands in Japanese history, has its sights set on America, with its first U.S. tour and English-lyrics album coming this Fall. ABC-TV’s Dan Harris sat down with X Japan’s Yoshiki in Chicago, to talk about that, and more.
