GACKT LAST VISUALIVE -LAST MOON- supported by Nestlé
7/3/2016 @ Saitama Super Arena
July 3rd, 2016 was a sweltering hot day in Japan. That’s why when 15:00 came around to the thousands fans outside of Saitama Super Arena, they were more than eager to start entering the air-conditioned venue to see the grand finale of GACKT’s WORLD TOUR 2016 LAST VISUALIVE 最期ノ月 -LAST MOON- supported by Nestlé.
All that could be seen on stage was a great red moon projected on the center of an enormous screen. When the lights went out at 16:15, a frame surrounding the moon opened to reveal an even bigger screen. It showed the introduction to the continuation of GACKT’s long-running MOON SAGA – segueing from GACKT’s theatric narration to a battlefield scene.
As the scene came to an end, the opening chords of ARROW prompted the entire arena to rise to their feet for Part One, almost all of them wielding dual light sticks set to purple. The giant screen parted to reveal GACKT and his members in full LAST MOON costume. The stage set looked something akin to a post-apocalyptic movie set. Fans waved their light sticks to the beat, creating a purple galaxy-like image around the stage.( Read more... )

GACKT rounded off the final show of his LAST VISUALIVE tour last night, and he had some big announcements to make at the end.
The first announcement is that he will hold a world tour in 2017! No further details–including possible places or dates–have been announced yet. Stay tuned!!
The second announcement is that one of the tracks on his latest album “LAST MOON” has been chosen as the opening theme for an anime. 「キミだけのボクでいるから」 (Kimi dake no Boku de iru kara) will be the opening theme for “TRICKSTER,” a new series set to air starting in October. A preview of the anime (featuring GACKT’s tune) was released just last night.

YOSHIKI x GACKT - X JAPAN's album got delayed because of GACKT?
On May 23rd YOSHIKI and GACKT aired a collaboration live broadcast titled "YOSHIKI CHANNEL× OH!!MY!!GACKT!!" from Roppongi nicofarre online.
During the broadcast the two sat on comfortable red chairs sipping Y by YOSHIKI wine. They talked about when they first met, revealing the fact that they drank 16 bottles of champagne together during their first meeting. Apparently on that day YOSHIKI was supposed to finish the editing for X JAPAN's album before the next morning, but instead ended up drinking champagne with GACKT until the morning. "It's GACKT's fault that X JAPAN's album was delayed", YOSHIKI laughed.
When describing GACKT, YOSHIKI said, "He is awesome, I mean, he puts out albums on time", to which GACKT replied, "That is n-o-r-m-a-l."
GACKT on the other hand said he hopes YOSHIKI would be "a bit more responsible", but later on during the show also said that "He (YOSHIKI) is a musician and his ideas are out of this world, so there's no need for him to be responsible. If we start to naturally fit into a pretty box, it means that we are over. So from that point of view, I think YOSHIKI is just the way a musician should be."
