A European tour commences in Germany in January, and like the previous European and U.S tours, there is no support band. The last three nights in Paris are filmed, but are never officially released, with only snippets appearing in a U.S TV documentary in the new year. Alternatively many shows are sound recorded and make up what will become the band's first live album entitled Live Killers.

After a near three year absence, the band return to Japan in April for a massive fifteen date tour, followed in the summer by a one-off open air concert in Saarbruken, Germany.

As the UK was omitted as part of the European tour, a special 'Crazy tour' was added in November and December with the band returning to the smaller halls that they hadn't played for many years. To round off the year they play seven dates in even smaller venues as part of 'The Crazy tour of London', finishing off with a filmed charity show for the people of Kampuchea at Hammersmith Odeon on Boxing day.
