last week i got a request to translate the best of the best tour pamphlet, and even though it took me longer than expected, here it is! i’ve got some footnotes at the very bottom, and the full interview is the cut for length.
On July 4th, 2013, GACKT will be celebrating his 40th birthday. This milestone year will be celebrated at his best-of tour, “GACKT Live Tour 2013 Best of the Best vol. I.” To all of his beloveds that have followed him up until now, he’d like to express his feelings of gratitude in the form of “giving back.”
It has been 14 years since his solo debut. At the heart of it all, GACKT has expanded his range of expression in his approach to the attack without wavering—there is always music and the performance. In the process of reaching this point, his concerts have evolved into the world’s unique and unmatched VISUALIVE. In the past, the present, and from here on out this has been GACKT’s unchanging focus. GACKT has chosen to follow this path, even at the risk of his own life.
