As far as I know this promotional video for the Joy (1989) live album is the only performance footage of Tatsuro Yamashita extant on the internet. He’s got some kind of personal no-film policy.

Update by some dude on discord, about an hour ago:

Tats’ concert film, originally released after the end of his tour in 2012(?), and only ever shown in theaters, is currently back for another run at, seemingly, only 4 theaters in the country until 5/24. Kudos to this guy for going at like 10am. Lucky.

flabergasted by how hard it was to find this single from hiromi iwasaki online a couple months ago


Also posted previously but I am still listening to it:
A collection of Everly Brothers covers with Tatsuro as Phil and Eiichi Ohtaki as Don; performed live on NHK radio in 1981 (?).

This record is real solid fazed out rock and roll.
