Tak Matsumoto Tour 2016 -The Voyage- is a live tour held by Tak Matsumoto in 2016, from April 16 to May 7. The tour came in support of his studio album enigma and was his first in two years, since 2014's Tak Matsumoto LIVE 2014 -New Horizon-. The tour was Tak's highest profile solo undertaking at the time, with dates at both Osaka Jo Hall and Nippon Budokan. The setlist remained the same throughout the tour.
The tour was released on the 28th anniversary of the day B'z debuted as Tak Matsumoto Tour 2016 -The Voyage- at Nippon Budokan.

- Theme from ULTRAMAN
- Debut live performance of a hard rock composition that served as the theme to the 2004 ULTRAMAN film that was released internationally as ULTRAMAN: The Next. The song, composed and performed by Tak, can only be found on the film's original soundtrack. Notably, the film's ending theme was the TMG song "NEVER GOOD-BYE" from their debut album TMG I.
- THE THEME OF B.J.
- Unreleased theme to a song that served as the opening to Black Jack Special: The Four Miracles of Life, a 2003 televised anime event featuring Osamu Tezuka's Black Jack character. An orchestral version was included in the setlist for Tak's special live collaboration with the Tokyo Metropolitan Symphony Orchestra, which served as the basis for the version that would later be found on House Of Strings. Later, a more jazz-infused rendition was included as a full remake as "BLACK JACK" on 2014's New Horizon and included in the subsequent tour.
