Following a thoroughly promising career start, their debut "Heading For Tomorrow" having caused an international stir and netted phenomenal sales figures in February 1990, Gamma Ray embarked on a major tour only a few months after the album release.
As "Heading For Tomorrow" turned into a commercial success particularly in Asia, Gamma Ray were still on their European tour when they received invitations to play a total of four shows in Tokyo, Nagoya and Osaka.
Japan welcomed the new act with open arms. During the four shows in Japan, the new Gamma Ray line-up proved to be a homogenous unit and dynamic live act.
They played two nights in a row in Tokyo in front of more than 3,000 fans each and delivered the hoped-for first-rate material for their live video "Heading For The East".
The show's set list consisted mainly of tracks from the debut album "Heading For Tomorrow" as well as the Helloween tracks "I Want Out", "Ride The Sky", "Save Us" and "Freetime", a composition which vocalist Ralf Scheepers had brought with him from his former band Tyran' Pace.
Thanks to the 2015 anniversary re-release "Heading For The East", the legendary Tokyo concert from 1990 is now available on CD for the first time, perfectly remastered by producer/sound engineer Eike Freese (Dark Age, Deep Purple)."
