About

From paulmccartney.com, February 3, 2015:

Last year for reasons beyond his control Paul was forced to cancel his Japanese tour dates. Today it is confirmed that Paul will bring his show back to Japan in April. Speaking about the forthcoming shows Paul said:

“I can’t wait to get back to Japan for some more great nights of rock n’ roll and fun. We had such a great time on our trip in 2013 and we were so disappointed that we couldn’t perform last year. I want to thank my fans for all the lovely messages you sent me. Looking forward to seeing you all very soon.”

From For Whom The Bell Tells, July 6, 2015:

On his way to The Dome, Paul calls a local radio station telling the DJ he’s “happy and excited to be back”. The presenter explains she cannot believe she is talking to a music God. Paul tells the station he has had the toughest massage he has ever experienced, that morning at the hotel, as well as praising his fans whom he said have always been the highlight of his previous shows in Japan. As for the show itself, it might be best for the Japanese reviewers do the talking to give you a flavour of how his opening night went:

“Wassup Osaka, I’m back!” Paul returns with 37 songs (SANKEI SPORTS)
Thrilling his fans with a punchy greeting in Japanese, Paul set the tone for the performance with a strong performance of ‘Magical Mystery Tour’. Dedicating ‘My Valentine’ to his wife Nancy and ‘Maybe I’m Amazed’ to his late wife Linda, he also nodded to former band mates John and George with performances of ‘Here Today’ and ‘Something’. Announcing in Japanese the world premiere of ‘Hope for the Future’, he also brought the entire audience together in a performance of ‘Hey Jude’ by directing their singing in Japanese. The giant LED screens also featured live translations of his English words…

After the cancellation of last year’s tour, 40,000 fans gave Paul a rapturous welcome last night at the Osaka Dome. Starting with a powerful performance of ‘Magical Mystery Tour’, he greeted the crowd in Japanese before running through some 37 songs from The Beatles period and the new album – including a premiere performance of ‘Hope For The Future’. The powerful two-and-a-half-our set was done without him drinking a drop of water – and this after a 50-minute soundcheck…

“I’m Back”; The voice we’d been waiting to hear (SANKEI SHIMBUN)
Paul McCartney thrilled 40,000 fans with a fine performance last night in Osaka where he started his new tour. Greeting his fans in Japanese, he ran through numbers from The Beatles’ catalogue and the new album, putting to rest the worries of fans who missed seeing him last year. 

As you can tell from that small selection, Paul was back alright!
