The private show was held in the Pavilion, a 15,000 square-foot multi-use facility which was set up as a nightclub for this event. Crosby Stills and Nash were also on the same bill for the Friday night show. Rod Steward performed for the same group on Saturday night, however, this event took place at the Fleischer Museum in Scottsdale, Arizona. The show was sponsored by Nomura Securities International, Inc., a subsidiary of Nomura Securitiies Co., Ltd. Nomura Securities Co., Ltd. is the largest brokerage house in Japan with sales of 6.6 billion dollars in 1994. Nomura is a leading underwriter of bonds, but the firm's main business is its Japanese stock brokerage. Interestingly enough, Nomura helped to underwrite a US issue of Sony stock in 1961.

Interesting tidbit: Dylan's contract to do the concert stipulated that he did not have to speak or communicate with anyone between songs. I was also told the guests were not particularly impressed with the performance. No wonder they lost the war!
