Rainbow: Japan Tour 1984; 104 Min Concert

An essential metal DVD for every Rainbow maniac! This is the legendary show recorded live at Budokan, Tokyo (Japan) on March 14th, 1984. It would be the last Rainbow concert featuring Joe Lynn Turner, Judas Priest and Rory Gallagher producer Roger Glover on bass, drummer Chuck Bürgi and the virtuoso keyboardist David Rosenthal on its line up. After that, as we all know, Blackmore and Glover returned to Deep Purple, but that’s another story…

In this film you have the chance to enjoy live versions of the sometimes forgot classics “Fool For The Night”, “Stranded” and “Fire Dance”, form the underrated metal masterpiece “Bent Out Of Shape”. There are a lot of jams, improvisations and awesome solos. I specially highlight Bürgi and Rosenthal ones, which demonstrate that they’re as good players as Powell and Airey, respectively.

The killer “Death Alley Driver”, “Spotlight Kid” and the legendary and epic version of “Difficult To Cure”, featuring an orchestra, sound better than the studio ones, showing the band’s virtuosity on stage. And about the “Man in Black”, what can I say?, an incredible performance filled with passion, charisma and speed, like always!
