City: Tokyo, Japan
Venue: Nippon Budokan
Date: April 13, 1979


This is the first of two nights in Tokyo, at the beginning of what would be their longest tour of Japan, consisting of 15 dates.

During a TV interview the next day, based on this show Brian May points out that their Japanese audience is maturing, listening to the music more than they used to.

The famous photo for the front cover of Live Killers was taken at the end of one of the Japanese shows, and the fifth picture above (taken by Koh Hasebe and found in a 1979 Japanese book called "Queen 02 Archive Book Guide") was snapped right around that moment. The other pictures could also be from any show on the tour, the second of which was submitted by Alessio Rizzitelli.
