Paul McCartney plays Beatles song ‘Another Girl’ live for the first time ever – watch

Macca performed the track at the Nippon Budokan in Japan

Paul McCartney performed The Beatles song ‘Another Girl’ live for the first time ever at the Nippon Budokan in Japan today (April 28).

He played the track from the ‘Help!’ album – which was never performed live by The Beatles – at the iconic venue to celebrate 49 years since his old band played there in 1966. Speaking about the gig, McCartney commented: “It was sensational and quite emotional remembering the first time and then experiencing this fantastic audience tonight. 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.”
