Freddie delights everyone on hand by introducing The Prophet's Song in Japanese. The audience are very enthusiastic tonight, and apparently borderline rowdy, as Freddie has to tell everyone to "take it easy" during Jailhouse Rock.

During Liar, the frantic audience shout "liar" and "all day long" in unison at all the appropriate times.

The band play Father To Son again tonight. Provided that they didn't play it two nights later in Tokyo, this would be the final performance of the Queen II gem.

This first gen transfer emerged in mid-2008. It runs a semitone fast, except for most of Doing All Right, which seems to be a tape gen or two worse than the rest of the show.

Wardour quickly bootlegged the first gen transfer in September 2008. They fixed the speed and did some hiss reduction. The latter is apparent especially in quieter moments, resulting in that familiar digital whirlpool sound.
