Recorded live in Japan in December 1991 in the cities of Osaka and Tokyo, this tour was billed as:
               "Rock Legends: George Harrison live with Eric Clapton and his band".
The tour ran from 1st to 17th December 1991, and didn`t only include George's songs below, it also featured songs of Eric's which were not included on this release.
This was George's first live tour for 17 years, and first visit to Japan since coming with the Beatles in 1966, and consequently he was very very nervous and almost backed out a number of times.
When asked why he was touring again George replied,
"I had to do something after giving up smoking !"
The tour allegedly took almost 10 million pounds.
