Thanks for the info. I have heard that Renaissance is still going strong. I haven't seen them in quite a while unfortunately though.

Hi...The English prog-rock band is on tour in Japan right now and I follow them. I noticed this setlist at a venue in Tokyo with only three shows there and was wondering if it is named right. If you get a chance maybe you could check it for me.

Re: Peter Evans... perhaps the one with the dancer is the one he noted as "solo" as in the only musician performing, per his website:
"16 Jazz art Sengawa - solo"

That Ten Years After concert looks like it was rescheduled a couple of times but they give no reason why. It certainly makes it hard to pin down.

You're welcome! I will definitely be asking for help on Japanese venues, as I said before, they can be very confusing to me, and I always try to be as accurate as possible! Thank you again my friend! Tom...:)

Hello! I went by the recording information listed for the Alison & Spike "Maple Snow" CD per the Discogs website. The link is here:

According to the Discogs site, the entire CD was recorded at Muse Hall, Osaka on 14 December 1994, except for the song "Empty earth", which was recorded at the Shinjuku Loft, in Tokyo on 11 December 1994. Hope this clears the source up. Always happy with help on the Japanese venues, as sometimes it gets confusing to me! All the best and more postings later. Tom...:)

Thank you for changing CLUB SEATA venue!!!

f you see anything that doesn't look right please feel free to correct it and/or let me know.

I am going to continue working on them. It seems that some UK cities have a lot of information on their venues and some have barely anything at all.

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!
