It was just 12 feet away from the stage. They only let first 500 people in to the front portion dance floor. Others were standing in the back and there were some seating on upstairs. Total of about 1500 people got in.
A video clip explaining "The Yoshiki Foundation" was aired. X JAPAN invited 200 orphans to their concert on Christmas Eve in 1990. The Kansai Earthquake occurred on January 17, 1995. 5,500 people were killed and 26,000 people were injured. X JAPAN donated pianos to the damaged schools in the area at their Christmas Osaka concert on December 24, 1995. They had Hong Kong Concert. They donated to Orphans in Hong Kong.

Toshi, the vocal, and Suizo guitarist joined Yoshiki (Pianist and drummer) and played one song in acoustic version. Yoshiki played a piano. 午後11時からは音楽ビデオ撮影開始。X JAPANメンバー総出で新曲『Born to be Free』音楽ビデオを1時間4テイク撮影。まさかメンバー全員マジカで見れるとは。。。会場中大興奮でした。
From 11 pm, they did their new music video filming for a new song, "Born to be Free". At our surprise, all members, Toshi, Heath, Pata, Sugizo, and Yoshiki appeared. They did 4 takes on that song. The crowds got excited
The filming used lots of pyro-technique fires like the last time. It was so great. We could get up close to the X JAPAN members unlike the last filming at Hollywood. At that time we had to look up the stage 4 to 5 story high.
We could enjoy the X JAPAN Concert Experience for free. I uploaded the last take to Youtube and attached below.
The parking fee at the Club Nokia basement was $25. I parked along the figueroa Street open space parking lot at $7. It became $10, $11, $12, $15, $20 as you approach to the Staples Center and Nokia Theater.
