is a music project founded by several Japanese rock musicians in 2007. They are Yoshiki, Gackt, Sugizo and Miyavi, all being important to the visual kei movement or closely related to it, but each being from a different generation. Its debut performance was on June 29, 2007, in Long Beach, California, considered as the "Japanese rock concert of the century". Although they had announced more activities, such as a live tour and releasing a record, all activities were suddenly stopped. The future of the project still remains unclear.

Debut concert

On June 12, premiere Skin concert tickets started to be released via internet. However, every site's, that sold tickets for the anime expo or the premium concert, servers crashed due to the massive interest, and in a few hours ticket reservations were temporary stopped. On Thursday night of June 28, Skin performed for the first time, supported on bass by Ju-ken, at the time a member of Gackt's live band. The concert began almost two and a half hours late, for unknown reasons. They performed around five songs, of which four were "Gei-Sha", "Killing you Softly", "Beneath the Skin", "Violets", and most lyrics were in English. During the performance of "Violets", Gackt and Yoshiki both played piano, Sugizo was on violin and Miyavi played the traditional Japanese shamisen. At the end, Gackt announced that they would meet again.
