Tokyo: 22-03-87 is an unofficial Duran Duran live album, recording during The Strange Behaviour Tour at the Korakuen Stadium in Tokyo, Japan on 22 March 1987.

About the album[]

The album is a recording of Duran Duran's performance at the Korakuen Stadium, a 50,000 capacity venue which was located on the site of now The Tokyo Dome. This was the fifth of six shows performed in Japan on the tour.

These were the first Duran Duran shows in Japan for more than 3 years, playing to their largest audience since Live Aid, with 35,000 people attending each of the Tokyo concerts.

Whilst Duran Duran were in Tokyo, Nick Rhodes visited a Buddah Temple and Simon Le Bon went to the Imperial Palace.

Recordings of Duran Duran at this show were released in the 1980s on a double vinyl LP set, called Duran Duran Vs Andy Taylor: That Fatal Kiss.

The performance includes moments when Simon Le Bon had some difficulties singing the right lyrics at the right time. This is mostly noticeable at the end of "A View to a Kill" and at the beginning of "Notorious".

The show began on a night of heavy rain, so during the evening Le Bon sang a line of "Singin' In The Rain" from the 1952 American Musical comedy film starring Gene Kelly. He also thanked the crowd for being there.

The concert flyer features Duran Duran photography by John Swannell.
