I couldn't find this date appearing here before but maybe I missed it, the most commonly circulated date from the Japanese leg of the Rumors tour seems to be the December 5th Tokyo due to the availability on video.
Here we have the night before the Tokyo show in Osaka and another outstanding recording. This one came from the same trader I got the Dire Straits show from I posted earlier.
On etree this one is labeled as Festival Hall but the Japanese trader I got it from labeled the tape as Expo Hall so that is what I'm going with here.
A very subtle lift between 500hz-2khz really brought this one to life.
It's excellent quality and a great performance that I don't think even the casual fan of the Rumors era Mac should do without.
