These aren't just event posters -- I think they are also content pages for smartphones. Here's page with clickable hyperlinks for artist bios, venue map, etc:

There are two open air concert halls in Hibiya Park.


It seems Renaissance will be in the large one:




Note from Annie:

"It was in Tokyo at an open air theater called 'Hibiya Open Air Theatre'. Very nice venue a little like the Greek Theatre, LA, on a smaller scale on the edge of a park. There were 2000 people there. We had another great audience and of course The Mystic once again was a triumph.
[...]
After the show we went for a Japanese meal and drank LOTS of Sake! Perfect ending!"
Setlist:

1. Prologue
2. Carpet of the Sun
3. Midas Man
4. Things I Don't Understand
5. The Mystic and the Muse
6. Running Hard

7. Mother Russia

There are videos on this page, but not from the Japanese shows.
From Steve Hackett's blog:

We played alongside Renaissance at the festival. It was good to see them again.

More from Steve Hackett in an interview made in Japan before the shows.

I've done a few shows in the States with Renaissance and it worked out very well. We found a lot of crossover, with people interested in both bands. It's been fruitful and it's very nice touring with them.
More photos (soundcheck and touristing) on official facebook page.
