"Live at The Budokan" is a live album by American R&B band Chic, released on Nile Rodgers' label Sumthing Else in 1999.
The album contains the concert at Tokyo's Budokan on April 17 1996 that was to be the very last performance by fellow Chic member Bernard Edwards who passed away the following day. The concert was a celebration of the Chic legacy and featured an all-star line-up with guest appearances by Sister Sledge, Slash from Guns N' Roses and Steve Winwood and was released three years after its recording, in unedited form including the spoken introductions by both Edwards and Rodgers.
The concert was released on DVD in 2006 and the "Budokan" album has been re-issued as "Chic In Japan" and "Live In Japan".
