B'z LIVE in Namba 2006 was a special event featuring B'z that took place on September 1, 2006 at Osaka's Namba Hatch and was one of the band's few concerts to be streamed in full for fans over the internet. Originally billed as Network LIVE in Japan Supported by dwango: B'z Premium Live, the show was the first B'z concert to be streamed from Japan, with the band's earlier North American tours in 2002 and 2003 receiving streaming treatment years earlier. The event was supported by ringtone company Dwango, for whom the year's earlier single "SPLASH!" served as a commercial theme.

The setlist to the show was similar to that of B'z LIVE-GYM 2006 "MONSTER'S GARAGE" with several songs from their 2006 studio album MONSTER, albeit with the inclusion of an unexpectedly large amount of English songs. Along with revivals of "Real Thing Shakes" from 1995 and 2002's "DEVIL", the previous year's "Brighter Day" from 2005 album THE CIRCLE saw its live debut and was joined by the world premiere of an all-new English version of the 1998 hit single "HOME". The English version of the track would go on to be one of the band's most widely-regarded English tracks, with inclusion on their 2007 international EP release as well as 2008's B'z The Best "ULTRA Treasure" via fan demand. The song would later be performed on future North American tours in both 2011 and 2012.

The full show received a home video release on DVD on February 28, 2008. Later, in 2010, the concert was given another video release when it was bundled in a two-disc Blu-ray set with another previously-available show, B'z SHOWCASE 2007 -19- at Zepp Tokyo. The resulting double package of B'z LIVE in Namba 2006 & B'z SHOWCASE 2007 -19- at Zepp Tokyo was released in time for the holidays on December 22, 2010, and was one of the band's earliest Blu-ray releases.
