Hey sabwh,
This is where I got that date.
However, it's just a fan site, so it's not any more a reliable source than wikipedia. There might be an accurate tour schedule on a magazine from that time period but I don't have any readily available at the moment. So I'm honestly not sure which date is correct at the moment.

with some moderators we managed to delete over 20 pages of venues with no setlists, some of them slightly wrong misspellings


Thanks for the head up
Maybe you can delete some more venues without setlist attached here
You certainly know and understand better Japanese geography.


I'm looking for a scan of the concert ticket from Steve Hackett In Kawazaki 2018.
Did you keep your ticket?

Thank you!

sabwh sama.

Sorry for bothering you repeatedly.
Apparently I seem to have mistyped the question.
This is the question that I wanted to ask truly.
"Is it a problem to register one newly as 'Gillan' at Shibuya Kokaido in October 1978?"
But of course it has been already...


sabwh sama.

I understood and accepted your comment completely.
Actually I didn't know which name I should choose,
but I prioritized the name, Ian Gillan Band, on the ticket.

After selling the ticket in Japan, Ian had changed band name!?
Anything can happen then in 1970's!!!

So... is it a problem to register one newly as Ian Gillan at Shibuya Kokaido in October 1978?


Hi sabwh,
Thanks again for your help establishing Japanese naming conventions. With regards to your two suggestions on my profile, I went ahead and merged Mt.RAINIER HALL, and I'm going to use "Chelsea Hotel" instead of "CHELSEA HOTEL" since the venue's official name is in katakana:

Oh, I'm sorry, I didn't realise you were still correcting them! Hope I didn't make your work more difficult or complicated... : (

Hi, I noticed that you recently merged/corrected some of the Akarenga/Yokohama Red Brick Warehouse venues. I just wanted to let you know that I cleaned up these venues a little more: I merged all the outdoor shows into "Yokohama Akarenga Sōko", and all of the indoor shows into "Yokohama Akarenga Sōko 1-Gōkan". I then added explanations to each venue page, to help users in the future determine the best venue to use.

If you look at the official Akarenga website, "1-Gōkan" is the name they use for the building where all the indoor concerts are held (I think most of them are in the 3F hall, but since some might be in the 2F "creative space", I used the name of the building instead of "Akarenga Sōko 3F Hall"). Plus, this is how it's written on live schedules and concert tickets (e.g. ).

For outdoor shows, the convention is to simply use the name of the space. "Outdoor/okugai" shouldn't be included in the venue name, similar to how we use "Makuhari Messe" for all outdoor, unknown, etc. concerts and "Makuhari Messe Event Hall" or "Makuhari Messe International Exhibition Hall" for the concerts in those specific rooms.

Anyway, just wanted to let you know why I was changing your corrections ; )
Thank you again for all the great work, though! : )

Im glad my "ocd" helped something :D always nice with the correct venues!

hi, could i please ask you where did you find the setlist info for Red hot chili peppers 1992 may 07 show?

Thanks for the correction of the Pantera gig ("may 1 1994), I got bit overeager to add old setlists and thought it was enough research, I'll look for more than one source if I try to add old setlists in the future!

This is the source I used:
It's also listed on the August 1992 issue of "Rockin' f"

sabwh sama.

How have you been?

By the way, I am so sorry to have taken up your time to edit my post these days.
I always check for the venue before posting it but... orz
I will be more careful of it in future.


Hey sabwh
They were intentional. I think the shows were held in an open area within the complex.

Hey sabwh, you're correct it's in Kujukuri.

Hey sabwh, I just checked and it's RUIDO K4 in Shinjuku

sabwh sama.

After reading your comment and sending reply to you,
I have been thinking, "Wait a minutes, sabwh, is he a Japanese??? He knows too much about Japan..., too much...".

Well, after reading the articles and pictures on 3 web sites you tell me,
I'm starting to think the same thing too, maybe it's ADMIN.'s mistake...

So... I will leave final decision up to you about this case and follow your judgment.
Because you are Moderator but I am just User.
