Paul McCartney Finally Has a Good Tour in Japan

Paul McCartney arrives in Osaka in November 2013. He also was scheduled to perform in Tokyo for three shows.

The crowd was very excited to see Paul.

They were also very excited on a previous occasion. Sometimes, though, the show does not go on, as in the situation below.

Paul's appearances in Japan paid dividends. His single "New" from the album of the same day climbed the Japanese charts to No. 4. Setting aside charity performances, that's Paul's highest singles ranking on a major singles chart in, well, a long time ("Hope of Deliverance" made it to no. 3 in Germany in 1993, and "My Brave Face" reached No. 4 on the US AC chart in 1989). The Japanese musical market is said to be the second largest in the world, after the United States.
