Trivia / Info:
  • Friends of DEVO – Polysics – performed on the Factory Stage on Saturday, August 2.
  • "...This was also the year that a new system was tried out, with the SONIC/FACTORY STAGE in Makuhari Messe becoming a two-stage system with Western music artists alternating between performing at SONIC and Japanese music artists at FACTORY."[1]
  • Advertised as “Tokyo”, venues were in Chiba (https://mapcarta.com/Chiba).
  • On 2003-07-22, DEVO performed an identical setlist in Pacific Amphitheatre, Costa Mesa, California. DEVO’s tight playing enabled audio from the Tuesday, July 22 show to be used with video from the two touring festival shows on the 2004 DVD Live In The Land Of The Rising Sun.[2]
  • Bootleg audio recordings captured the Makuhari Messe performance in Chiba.[3]
