Whitesnake Announce ‘Made in Japan’ Live Album
Whitesnake has packaged hits and outtakes, along with rare acoustic versions of popular songs on ‘Made in Japan,’ a live CD/DVD to be made available on April 23. The band announced that the Oct. 11, 2011 show from the Loud Park festival at the Saitama Super Arena will be packaged in its entirety. Previously fans could only see and hear highlights on Japanese television.
Among the highlights on the track list are full versions of hits like ‘Still of the Night’ and ‘Here I Go Again,’ and acoustic versions of four songs, including ‘One of These Days’ and ‘Tell Me How’ recorded during soundchecks at different Japanese venues. A DVD and Blu-ray will be included with the two CDs. There fans can see the full 12-song setlist from Loud Park included on the first CD, as well as two fan videos of songs.
A press release reveals there was significant demand for this show, which was recorded for broadcast for a Loud Park Festival highlights show in Japan. Only three songs were shown during that airing. Coincidentally Whitesnake will begin the Year of the Snake Tour in Japan in May, after which they’ll head to Europe with dates scheduled through June.
