Tokyo: April 28, 1982 is an unofficial Duran Duran live album, recorded during The Rio Tour at the Nakano Sun Plaza in Tokyo, Japan on 28 April 1982.

About the albumEdit

The album is a recording of Duran Duran's performance at the Nakano Sun Plaza, a hotel in Nakano that features a 2,222 capacity concert hall. This was the fourth of five shows performed in Japan on the tour.

After playing six shows in Australia and three dates in Japan, the tour reached the Nakano Sun Plaza in Tokyo almost two weeks before the release of Rio. This tour was the first to include Japanese shows.

Duran Duran launched the show with "Sound of Thunder", the first song that the original five members worked on together using lyrics from Simon Le Bon's note book.

Soon the band were playing "Girls on Film", a song which was around before Le Bon joined Duran Duran with lyrics written by Andy Wickett.

During the show there was a performance of "Hungry Like the Wolf", played before its release as a single on 4 May 1982. Other unreleased songs were also showcased, including "Hold Back the Rain" and "Last Chance on the Stairway".

Tickets for the event cost around 3,000 Japanese Yen.

Available at the Japanese Rio shows were different tour programmes, featuring front cover photography by Michael Putland.
