  • Location / Tokyo, Japan
  • Venue / Nippon Budokan

The first show by the band in this city since November 2002 on the X/Ten tour.

The sixth time at this venue and first of two nights here.

The venue is located in the Chiyoda City ward in the city centre.

It was opened in October 1964 and originally built for use in the 1964 Summer Olympics as a Judo venue.

The venue name translates to Martial Arts Hall.

A long awaited return to Japan after a six year gap.

Whitesnake joined the tour again as special guests for these Japanese dates.

'C'mon C'mon', 'Nine Lives' and 'Rock On' making their live debuts in Japan.

'Bad Actress' was listed on the printed setlist but not played during the show.

A decent quality audience recording exists from this show.
