The final of the four Japanese dates was another success. Fans were ecstatic, many of them made it on stage despite the width of the pit and the barriers. Morrissey was obviously enjoying himself. James O'Brien filmed this show as he had done for the signing session a few days earlier. "Reader Meet Author" was reinserted into the set, making this the longest setlist of the whole visit to Japan.

Morrissey tried his hand at Japanese again by greeting his fans with "Ogenki desu ka?" (how are you?). During "The More You Ignore Me, The Closer I Get", he was kept away from his microphone, probably by fans climbing on stage or attempting to. The "Billy Budd" closing sample "Don't leave us in the dark" was also heard at the end of "The Operation". After "London", to people shouting his name, Morrissey said "Hai! Hai, hai hai!... hai! hai! hai!... yes! yes! yes!... hai! hai! hai!" ('hai' is Japanese for 'yes'). After "Now My Heart Is Full", he repeated many more yes's in English, at an accelerating pace as if he was having an orgasm.

During "The National Front Disco", the last song before the encore break, Morrissey removed his jacket and at the end of the song threw his shirt into the crowd after pulling it open, buttons flying everywhere. When he came back for the encore, he thanked the fans "Arigato, arigato! Yes, yes, yes, yes!". He left after saluting the audience "Sayonara!".


A fair audience recording of the full concert is circulated among collectors of bootlegs as well as on the internet. One of the internet bootlegs lacks the second half of "Spring-Heeled Jim".
