From the moment the latest B'z tour came to an end, fans have been eagerly anticipating the home video release for their 25th anniversary nationwide tour B'z LIVE-GYM Pleasure 2013 -ENDLESS SUMMER-. Today, we finally know when the package will be released, and much to everyone's surprise, it is coming in a bigger and better form than anyone ever expected!
B'z LIVE-GYM Pleasure 2013 ENDLESS SUMMER -XXV BEST- will be released on January 29, 2014, and will be available on both DVD & Blu-ray. What sets this release apart is that it will come available in not just a Regular Edition containing the full Nissan Stadium finale concert but also a Complete Edition that is no doubt the biggest B'z has ever released!
The Complete Edition contains not only the full finale concert but also a feature-length hall & dome tour documentary as well as yet ANOTHER full concert from the band: an earlier July performance during the hall tour with a vastly different setlist comprised almost entirely of rarely played songs and full of gems that fans have long clamored to have added to their home video collections. This massive addition to the B'z home video collection comes in at a staggering 348 minutes (nearly 6 hours!) runtime and is definitely not one to be missed!
The release will be a special one for new and old fans alike with the premiere of brand new track "Endless Summer" which has thus far not been released elsewhere and will make its home video of any kind right here. Classic single "LADY NAVIGATION" will be making its return to home video for the first time in 23 years since it was included on JUST ANOTHER LIFE in 1991, while new songs from B'z The Best XXV "Q&A", "Utopia", and "Kakushin" are all making their home video debuts together. Similarly, a new solo composition from Tak, titled "Rain" and thus far otherwise unreleased, is also making its debut here.
The setlists contain a great number of old favorites but also give fans a chance to see older songs that they've never seen live on home video before. The wide variety of tracks covers IN THE LIFE album song "Aikawarazu na Bokura", LOOSE classic "Yumemi ga Oka", "Survive" and "Happiness" from the former's titular studio album, the live and home video debut of C'mon album song "Dead End", and last but not least: the very first video inclusion for much-beloved B-side "The Wild Wind" from 1998. Rarer tracks "F･E･A･R", "STAY GREEN", and "Perfect Life" are also to be found on the hall tour finale, making for the band's most diverse pair of setlists anywhere in their release catalogue.
Of course, it wouldn't be a B'z show without their staples. Between the two live shows included in the Complete Edition, fans will be able to hear all their favorites: "ZERO", "Taiyou no Komachi Angel", "Negai", "BAD COMMUNICATION", "Ai no Bakudan", "Ichibu to Zenbu", "LOVE PHANTOM", "Koi-Gokoro", "OH! GIRL", "NATIVE DANCE", "Samayoeru Aoi Dangan", "girigiri chop", "RUN", "juice", "ALONE", and of course, "ultra soul".
