Pink Floyd Live Tour In Japan 1971-1988Just published in Japan (on May 28th) is a very interesting book about Pink Floyd, with masses to offer those of us who don't speak/read Japanese!

Pink Floyd Live Tour In Japan 1971-1988 is a large format (roughly A4 sized, or 11.7 inches by 8.3 inches, and almost an inch thick) book of more than 300 pages, which majors on photos of the band, principally when they were in that country at various points.

The book is part of the publisher's Live Tour In Japan series, which has already focused on Rainbow, Van Halen, Queen, and Led Zeppelin, and continues the tradition of those books with many pictures of Pink Floyd which are great, and have never been published before (including multiple shots from the same session). They've also included unseen pictures from outside Japan too, reprinted live reports (in Japanese) and suchlike.

The list of contents gives a good idea of what to expect, visually:
■ August 1971 Press Conference - Hakone Aphrodite
■ Reprint Live Report (August 6, 1971)
■ March 1972 Haneda Airport - Press Conference - Tokyo Gymnasium
■ 1971 & 1972 Osaka Festival Hall - Performance Retrospective
■ August 1974 London Hyde Park - Roy Harper & Heavy Friends (David Gilmour)
■ November 1974 London Empire Pool - British Winter Tour 1974
■ March 18, 1977 London Empire Pool - In The Flesh UK Tour
■ July 1977 New York Madison Square Garden - In The Flesh US Tour
■ May 1984 New York - About Face US Tour
■ October 1987 New York Madison Square Garden - A Momentary Lapse Of Reason US Tour
■ March 1988 Press Conference - Nippon Budokan - A Momentary Lapse Of Reason Japan Tour
■ Reprint Live Report (March 4, 1988)
■ Japanese concert Hakone Aphrodite performance of Pink Floyd
■ Testimony 1 - Hakone Day 2 Contribution from experienced people
■ Testimony 2 - Daiji Okai [Yonin Bayashi] Long Interview

The book is now available from Japanese retailers, including Amazon Japan who will ship the book worldwide (and as we found, very quickly too!).
