This is fairly big Gackt news.
It wasn’t enough that he starred in the ever so awesome Fuurin Kazan...
or that he picked up a fan base of Gackt obsessed, drooling 40 to 60 year olds (and older) because of this role
or that he is the first Asain artist to release his entire discography on I-tunes in 22 countries
Or because two of his DVDs were released in America and Canada recently to high sales numbers
or because starting today, (10/26/07) Gackt’s Diabolos will be sold in over 18 european countries.
Now he gets an honor held at the Apple store in Ginza where there was a press event for his world-wide advancements.
Gackt always said he’d be taking over the world... and he’s starting to show signs of doing it!
Gackt said that he still has a long way to go, and he wants to tour Europe, America & Asia and bring Japanese culture to the world.
he was also quoted as saying something to the effect: Fans around the world have been waiting... the time has finally come!
There’s no stoping him now!
There’s no stopping him from touring the world!
There’s no stopping him from coming to America!
There’s no stopping him from giving me free front row tickets and a backstage pass to his show!
Oh COME ON! A girl can dream ne?
