took place in Japan's Saitama Super Arena on October 15th 2011.
Filmed on the Japanese leg of Whitesnake's
momentousForevermore World Tour,in support of their 2011 album of
the same name, "Made In Japan" is packed full of the incredible
songs that continue to keep the band at the very forefront of
rock'n'roll. The "Forevermore" songs alone are worth the price of
admission, and that's before factoring in the hits such asIs This
Love,Still Of The NightandHere I Go Again. It's all here. This is
what Whitesnake fans, new and old, have been clamouring for.
In addition to the concert recording from Loud Park
Festival, "Made In Japan" features a bonus disc containing
never-before-heard versions of tracks recorded during soundcheck at
a variety of Japanese venues on the tour. Led by front man
and founding memberDavid Coverdale, "Made In Japan" features the
Whitesnake line-up ofDoug AldrichandReb Beachon guitar,

The 'Forevermore' songs alone are worth the
price of admission, not forgetting the classic Whitesnake
songs, "Is This
Love," "Still Of The
Night" and "Here I Go
Again," all performed at the height of their
musical powers. It's all here. This is what Whitesnake fans,
new and old, have been clamouring for. Highlights include
blistering guitar work from the band's six string guitar
Aldrich and Reb
Beach, who both celebrate their 10th anniversary
with the band this year.
Whitesnake also features the earth-shaking
rhythm section, The Wrecking
Devin (bass) and Briian
Tichy (drums), who anchor the deep and
dirty foundation of Whitesnake. The band is accompanied by the
swirling sonic tapestries of special guest keyboardist
Brian Ruedy, and of course, the chest
beating, seductive vocals of front man and founder,
After hearing the sound check recordings
from the different Japanese venues, the band decided to include
them in the package as special bonus content. They agreed that
everything would be related to their 2011 Japanese tour. So, when
you think about it, it is appropriate they've called the project
"Made In Japan".
"Made In Japan" coincides with Whitesnake's
UK Arena tour alongside Journey, with
special guests Thunder. The tour starts at the Glasgow SECC on
Saturday May 18th and runs
