His chronic condition worsened during the May concerts that marked former X Japan member Hideto "Hide" Matsumoto's death. According to a party close to Yoshiki, the musician is recuperating at his Los Angeles home while noted doctors of Western and Eastern medicine attend to him. Another source says that Yoshiki received a deluge of requests to perform in other cities besides the three already announced, before news came of Yoshiki's worsening condition."
