Aerosmith’s first ever concert in Japan. Thefirst date of the
Japanese Tour was originally scheduled
for January 28th in Tokyo but was
cancelled due to unknown reasons.
The recording starts with the taped “
Jaws” theme leading directly into
“Toccata And Fugue” while the band can be heard checking their signals. “Mama Kin”, “Write Me”, and “S.O.S.” are run together in quick succession before a brief break in the action. Aerosmith is known for delivering a fast paced show and this one is no exception.The first from the new Rocks LP follows with “Lick And A Promise”. This is played almost non-stop with “Big Ten Inch Record” which features solos from both Brad Whitford and Joe Perry. Joe breaks out the talk box for “Sweet Emotion”. The Toys In The Attic track will remain a staple in the band’s setlist to this day.
Whitford comes to the front again with “Last Child”, his main contribution to Rocks. Tyler seems to struggle a bit with the most challenging vocal of the night. The talk box makes another appearance in “Walk This Way”. Tyler miscues the second chorus but quickly recovers avoiding a potential disaster. The backing vocals in “Sick As A Dog” sound a bit off key but the song has great energy otherwise.
“You’re gonna sing for me tonight, can you say All Night Long” Tyler says to the crowd before “Train Kept A Rollin”. After the fast section the band breaks into “Bat Man” and the “Peter Gunn Theme” to close out the main set. “Toys In The Attic” starts with a slow blues before busting into the only encore.
