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

Encore:
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 rehearsal:

1 - Jam
2 - Matchbox
3 - Honey Hush
4 - I've Got A Feeling
5 - Junior's Farm
6 - I Wanna Be Your Man
7 - Sgt Pepper's Lonely Heart Club Band (Reprise)

9 - My Valentine
10 - Miss Ann
11 - Here There And Everywhere
12 - Every Night
13 - I've Just Seen A Face
14 - Being For The Benefit of Mr. Kite!
15 - Golden Slumbers/Carry That Weight/The End

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