This contains a different track order to the album and an extra track as the intro, "Burning Bridges". Different mixes of some songs appear. It was filmed at the Hammersmith Odeon and on location in Bangkok and Hong Kong. Be wary of the Hong Kong VCD bootleg, it is poorly encoded from a VHS that has some damage and the sound is out of sync as the conversion from PAL to NTSC has been executed poorly. Thanks to Ed for the information about the Beta video.

Thanks to Martin for the images of the VHD version and the ozboyz for the VHS and betamax tapes.

The content of this release is included as part of "The Very Best of Japan" DVD.
