Much anticipation over this appearance at the legendary Budokan and the show doesn't disappoint. A stunning 'Release' flows into the next few songs with a great energy, Ed's voice in good form and little chat until the end of a fast 'Hail Hail,' when Ed tries out some Japanese he's obviously worked on since the previous two shows. He also throws in a humorous, "Hablas Español?"
