  • Location / Osaka, Japan
  • Venue / Osaka-jō Hall / Castle Hall

The first show by the band in this city since June 1993 on the Adrenalize tour.

The second time at this venue.

The venue is located in the Kyōbashi area of the city centre.

It was opened in 1983.

Although officially called Osaka-Jo Hall it is often referred to as Castle Hall due it it being close to the Osaka Castle.

'Can't Keep Away From The Flame' was played for the first time on this tour. It was not played at the first three Japanese shows.

Joe before the song - "We're gonna do you something, it's the first time we've played it on this tour.". The song was played by Joe, Vivian and Phil only. Rick and Sav then rejoined the band for the next two acoustic songs.

'Love Bites' was dedicated to Ross Halfin as his "favourite song". Ross was at the venue and took photos of the band throughout the Japanese tour which would be released in his book "None More Black".

A decent quality audience recording exists from this show.
