"Fan the Flame Tour" was the sixth tour by the English band "Dead or Alive". The tour was made in 1990 and the reason for the tour is for the successful launch in Japan of their fifth studio album "Fan the Flame (Part 1)".

Dates & Places:[]

A brief tour of Japan to support the "Fan The Flame" albums was played in November 1990. Songs from the unreleased "Fan The Flame (Part 2)" were performed at this show, and the date in Nagoya was recorded and the acoustic encore surfaced as the B-side to "Gone 2 Long". A tour program was issued but features mostly unused photos from the "Nude" photo sessions, and no text in any language except for the tour dates and fan club information (all in Japanese).

There is a recording of the concert given by the band in Nagoya, which is a complete concert, filmed by fans who attended the event.

Curiosities:[]

  • The tour intended to continue in 1991 in the United Kingdom, the United States and the rest of America, this had already been confirmed by the band, but in the end nothing emerged.
  • A contest was held (only for Japan) through the Dead or Alive Fan Club newsletter to win a ticket to go to one of the tour's concerts, just answering some questions.
  • In the second presentation in Tokyo, Pete was accused of having committed a riot after a group of Japanese girls stripped off a fig leaf. Because of this, Pete was arrested after the end of the concert and faced a fine of 5,000 pounds for his "offensive act."
