For the upcoming second weekend of the Coachella Music Festival, X Japan will be making another appearance, and this time Marilyn Manson will be hitting the stage alongside the Japanese metal outfit. “I am happy to join my great friend @yoshikiofficial and XJapan at Coachella on Saturday the 21st for a special performance,” the shock rocker wrote on Instagram. At the opening weekend of Coachella last week, X Japan made a rare appearance at festival. Their set didn’t disappoint as it featured the holograms of late members Hideto “Hide” Matsumoto and Taiji Sawada and the return of band leader Yoshiki, who underwent surgery last year. Special guests Richard Fortus from Guns N’ Roses and Limp Bizkit’s Wes Borland also appeared with the band.
