The DVD was filmed on the final day of their tour last year, August 14th, at Chichibunomiya Rugby Jou (Tokyo), also their first open-air concert.
It was their first concert of the tour actually.

i'm always amazed when older groups like Bz still sell soo much
whited_79 7th-Feb-2013 12:30 pm (UTC)
Yeah and Blu-Ray is even more expensive than DVD too! Well B'z are kings of lives anyway, of course people won't mind spending that much money on a better quality version. :)

Congrats to B'z! Just recently checked on their music and I like them a lot!
I wished Tokyo Girls Style and Berryz Koubou would rank higher, but well...at least they are ranking in the top 30. :-)
Also congrats to SKE48, Generations and The Gospellers!


Thanks so much for posting this! <3
