Paul McCartney entered in 2018 and is doing a gig warm up in Liverpool and London in June and July. And on September 7, 2018, live special at the special stage of Grand Central Station in New York. Although the set list is simplified than usual, Paul ‘s decay as a musician is not felt, and the band has already entered the 16th year since becoming a member, but everyone performs wonderful performance. And at last it revises the last ONE ONE TOUR and announces that it will go on a new tour again entitled FRESHEN UP TOUR. Starting in Canada in September 2018, this tour includes a festival appearance, and in 2019 it is up to the American schedule. And in 2010, as a part of this FRESHEN UP TOUR, a performance in Japan took place. Even after about 24 years old he came to Japan for the first time in more than half a century, thus he turned 76, he was still doing large-scale stadium concerts in Japan far enough, he would not even have predicted himself. The schedule is as follows.

October 31, 2018 Tokyo Dome
November 1, 2018 Tokyo Dome
November 05, 2018 Ryogoku Kokugikan
November 08, 2018 Nagoya dome

This time it is the first time that the bilateral Kokugikan and the Nagoya performance which was canceled what was scheduled by Wings of 1980 are organized. Although the number of times the Tokyo Dome performance which had been three times last time has decreased few times, an artist with mobilizing power that can fill the dome stadium many times many times is probably impossible other than the big name like Paul. This work, on its first day, the first day of Tokyo Dome performance in 2018 is recorded including sound checks.

FRESHEN UP TOUR is characterized by adding new songs to the repertoire from the new album “EGYPT STATION”. Moreover, he plays two songs “Who Cares” and “Come On To Me” in the beginning of the concert, and “Fuh You” in the middle stage. Both are thought to be a musical piece that is kept in mind that it plays with a concert, becoming an important accent of the stage composition. Also, the first premiere on this tour is “From Me To You”. It is one of the representative songs of the extremely early Beatles, and has been picked up as an acoustic corner. In addition, if you see only the songs in the set list, there is no fresh selection of songs contrary to the tour title, and the songs that have been played are arranged side by side. However, if you mention the characteristics of this tour, you should focus on arranging rather than songs.

The major difference from the conventional pole stage is the addition of a brass section. Except for the wings of the 1970s, basically nobody other than band members joined the performance on the stage of Paul. Of course there was no schedule for the Bug · Pipe Orchestra to appear, or the guests to play. However, there are no musicians who took part in the tour and participated every night as a concert performance. For the first time, the brass section has joined the band. The arrange also makes use of it daringly in that the sound substituting for the keyboard which Wix plays until then is played with real instruments.

Brass section first appears in “Letting Go”. Moreover, the audience is very excited with a surprise production in which members who are lined up in the audience seems to suddenly play, not on stage. In the latter half of the song, a short brass solo is inserted in a break, making it even more prominent. The new song “Come On To Me” has also been featured extensively. Other brass sections also play an important role in “Let ‘Em In”, “Lady Madonna”, “Ob La Di Ob La Da”, “Live And Let Die”, “Hey Jude” and the last Abbey Road Medley .

In addition, the song “Back In Blazil” recorded in the album “Egypt Station” uses Japanese as “Ichiban”. It was a previous reputation to premiere this song in Japan, but as a result it was added as an introduction to the beginning of “Come On To Me”. It is a fine point, but this is also the first arrangement adopted in Japan.

【October 31, 2018 Tokyo Dome Performance】
On the first day of the performance in Japan in 2018, it began with “A Hard Day’s Night” as a feature of FRESHEN UP TOUR until then. This time the acoustics are wonderful, it is becoming more dense and pressing sound more than before, it is surprised first. It is a stage of Paul in 2018 which is a thick sound image suitable for confronting 50,000 audiences with only 5 bands. Moreover, the horn section is added, and it becomes “attractive” show with beautiful lighting. The recording of this work was recorded in the front row of the stage garment, and it is recorded with just the best tone quality in the performance in Japan after 2013. Disk 3 is a sound check source that was performed before the performance of the day. In this volume, a public sound check for VIP tickets playing rare songs and cover songs not to play. On this day, I play “Day Tripper” “Things We Said Today” for the first time in a while.

From the performance in Japan in 2018, the first day of October 31 the Tokyo Dome performance is fully recorded in the front row in super high sound quality. It is recorded with the highest sound quality in the past visit to Japan. You can chase in a real time on Paul’s live performance since 2003 and this time as well, you can have it on Piccadilly Circus label that delivered the latest tour from time to time as quickly as possible with high quality. I think that many titles will be released this time, but there is no need to compare with various others, if there is this work as a decision board it is good. Permanent preservation of a beautiful picture / disk specification A tightly pressed press. Japanese style attaching.
