GACKT Official news update. Translation below:

The graduation live concert has been held by GACKT for many years since 2006, and this is the 14th time.
It had been GACKT’s lifework, but was cancelled in 2020 due to the Corona disaster.
In September 2021, GACKT was forced to suspend his activities due to an illness that struck him, and he said that he was even thinking of retiring.

Today, March 13, 2023, GACKT, who has recovered from his battle with the disease, appeared at the graduation ceremony of Kaminogawa Junior High School in Kaminogawa, Kawachi-gun, Tochigi Prefecture, and gave a surprise live performance to encourage the 125 third-year students on their new journey.

The principal, who is retiring this year after his final year of teaching, gave the graduating students one last gift: flowers.
He wanted to add flowers to the departures of his graduating students and make it something they will always remember.

GACKT finished singing his famous song “Like a Flower Blooming in the Field” with K’s piano and the chorus at the ceremony, which was filled with surprise, and spoke powerfully to the students.

Dreams are not something to see.
Dreams are to be fulfilled
And to make dreams come true
It’s about never giving up and staying strong.
I look forward to your future.
Congratulations on your graduation!
