Since Queen arrived in Japan for the first time in 1975, the band has performed a total of 50 concerts in Japan, and did 6 tours there.
Last tour to Japan arrived in 1985, after the release "The Works" tour. As the closing tour, the last place of the long tour lasting from the previous year was in Japan. The Japanese performance at this time was held in the schedule of all five performances. Three performances in Tokyo, one in Nagoya, and one performance in Osaka.
This work includes Osaka Jo Hall performance on May 15, 1985 on the last day.
For Queen who was accused of placing a concert in South Africa, I wonder if I was feeling restless with the loyal fans of Japan. This work is the very last concert of the Queen 's Japan tour which counts 50 times, the title which completely recorded with the ultimate appearance which the Japanese fans saw with super high sound quality. Permanent preservation of a beautiful picture / disk specification A tightly pressed board. Japanese-style attaching.
