Beastie Boys at Fuji Rock Festival



Information on the Beastie Boys performance at the Fuji Rock Festival in Niigata, Japan, is slow coming in. I'm waiting to get details from friends in Japan. [Updated with setlist, photos, and video]

Someone shot a lot of video! A 10-minute video of Mix Master Mike's opener, Super Disco Breakin', Sure Shot, and Triple Trouble may be viewed here. A 9-minute video of Time for Living, Live at PJ's, and B for My Name may be viewed here. An 8-minute video of Gratitude, Remote Control, and Pass the Mic may be viewed here. A video of Time to Get Ill, Ch-Check It Out, Transitions, Sabrosa, and Off the Grid may be viewed here. A video of the end of Transitions, Son of Neckbone, and Sabrosa may be viewed here. These last two videos prove that the setlist provided by the Beastie Boys label in Japan and published above is incorrect, or at least not in correct order.

According to one fan with whom I communicated, the crowd for the Beastie Boys set was pretty tame, except during Sabotage. The audience wigged out for that song.

mix master opener? is that new?

MMM opener, intro, same thing. mixy starting the show is not anything new. :)

Actually, the Mix Master Mike opener is new to the European tour. There was no MMM opener at any of the shows I attended. I think they made it a staple of the show at the end of the tour. I'm not sure why. Maybe they removed a song from the standard set? I'd have to study setlists to say with any certainty. Unfortunately, we don't have full setlists for most of the shows at the end of the tour.

They probably removed one of the instrumentals to let Mixy do his thing.

it looks like yauch's claws belong to a bird of prey, like a hawk or an owl or eagle or something. :P

This is completion list.


Adrock was show the spirits as all the time.
I was glad.
But I had littel dissatisfied with Mike's vocal not sharply on the punk number.

Before encore's began, A little girl ran up to center of stage.
She was Yauch's daughter possibly...?
I couldn't see what was she doing.

After that, show resumed.
Yauch sang as holding a teddy bear all the while band played Intergalactic.
