Paul McCartney Plays Beatles Song Live For The First Time

(Gibson) Paul McCartney performed at Japan's Nippon Budokan on Tuesday, marking his first appearance at the legendary venue since The Beatles performed there in 1966.

To commemorate the event, Sir Paul broke out The Beatles' classic tune "Another Girl," from the Help! album, in what is believed to be the first time the song has ever been played live by any member of the Fab Four.

Indeed, The Beatles themselves never performed the song on-stage. McCartney appeared to be genuinely moved by the significance of the occasion. "It was sensational and quite emotional remembering the first time and then experiencing this fantastic audience tonight," McCartney said, as reported by NME.com.

"It was thrilling for us and we think it was probably the best show we did in Japan and it was great to be doing the Budokan 49 years later. It was crazy. We loved it." Read more here.
