Japan/Australia Tour1987

The first Tour of Starlight Express, November 1987. This production was simply ENORMOUS! Some of these pictures catch the seating in the background- the sheer scale of this tour boggles the mind. The set was in the centre of Stadia, seating who-knows-how many thousands every night. It's also odd now to think that this was the third production of Starlight Express to be mounted- a few months after they opened on Broadway, and before the german theatre was half-built!

Some of these pictures somewhat confuse me. Pearl if clearly racing with Bobo (unless it's Coco, his twin brother!) Possibly this was just a staged photoshoot for the brochure pictures, but if these are shots from the show - I'm confused.
