Waving the flags at the Budokan Hall

Here’s the set list from Paul McCartney’s concert at the Budokan Hall in Tokyo on April 25, the first concert of his in 2017:

01. A Hard Day’s Night

02. Jet

03. Drive My Car

04. Junior’s Farm

05. Let Me Roll It

06. I’ve Got a Feeling

07. My Valentine

08. 1985

09. Maybe I’m Amazed

10. We Can Work It Out

11. Every Night

12. In Spite of All the Danger

13. Love Me Do

14. BlackBird

15. Here Today

16. Queenie Eye

17. Lady Madonna

18. I Wanna Be Your Man

19. Magical Mystery Tour

20. Being for the Benefit of Mr. Kite!

21. Obla Di, Obla Da

22. Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band (Reprise)

23. Back In The U.S.S.R.

24. Let It Be

25. Live And Let Die

26. Hey Jude


27. Yesterday

28. Hi Hi Hi

29. Golden Slumbers

30. Carry That Weight

31. The End

We expected more from the Sgt Pepper album, but perhaps he is waiting for the anniversary album to appear. Another surprise is the non-inclusion of “Band On The Run”, that hasn’t happened before.. It is a shorter set list than usual, but McCartney played a shorter set last time he visited the Budokan Hall too, so perhaps those “missing” songs will reappear later on in the tour. Meanwhile, Paul has added a massive new run of U.S. dates to his One On One tour. An official announcement from Paul is expected today, but eager local promoters have already started to announce the concerts, like this one. Also rumoured for later in October: South America.

    Budokan has always been a shortened set list, so 31 songs for there sounds about right.
