I don't have enough time to write about its text but I'd like to show it as possible as I can...

Its text was written by a female writer who used to be an editor and then a chief editor of a Japanese magazine called "Music Life". That magazine continued to push Queen for years especially in '70s from '74.

In its text she mentions some things as follows:

1) In Japan, Queen have been very popular and esp. their songs were often heard in a certain TV drama broadcasted in early 2004, which led to release of compilation album called "Jewels"( Brian named ). It sold over a million copies by april 2004.( by the end of 2004, about one and a half million copies I hear )

2) Queen came to Japan six times,( i.e. in '75, '76, '79, '81, '82, and '85). And this concert is their "last" one in Tokyo.

3)It was broadcasted once on TV in Japan and its video and laser disc were released in 1992 and now it is available on DVD.

4) short text of each number recorded
including its highest ranking in UK chart or US chart

(I'm afraid whether I can summarise and describe it properly...)

But thanks for the summary

English is not my mother-tongue, but I'm quite convinced she did not make a mistake. Queen had 6 Japanese tours during their career, so they've been in Japan 6 times. Where is a mistake in that?

When MCB said "6 times", MCB made it sound like Queen have only performed 6 concerts in total in Japan.

The proper term would be to say "Queen toured Japan six times", NOT "played Japan six times"
