  • Location / Sendai, Japan
  • Venue / Zepp Sendai

The first show by the band in this city since June 1996 on the Slang tour.

The first time at this venue.

The venue was located in the city centre by the main railway station.

It was opened in August 2000.

The venue was closed in July 2012.

Ricky Warwick opened the show with a short 25 minute acoustic set.

The first time the band have had a support act in Japan where shows tend to start at around 6pm.

A much longer show with 20 songs played.

'Ring Of Fire', 'Long Long Way To Go' and 'You're So Beautiful' were all played live for the first time.

'Rocket' was the extended version with new guitar solos.

The 'Disintegrate' Intro was an edited version played over the PA with flashing strobe lights before the band appear.
