Shout It Out Loud was the opening encore at Nagoya, but has been brought forward and War Machine has been knocked back one place in the set.

Probably.

I wonder why they dropped Hide Your Heart. It seemed to go over well in the last show.

The production on Samurai Son is a bit hard to pull off without either extra musicians so a backing track for that song is fine IMO.

I watched 4 different videos of the first night and Paul is still singing - but he is also on the backing track.

Yep, it wasn't the crime against humanity it was made out to be by some.

Back from the meeting (which overran - it was excruciating), and I've read that 'Sukiyaki' was performed between I Love It Loud and Lick It Up. Whether that was a full version, or a brief one-liner I don't know. Just giving you the heads-up for the set-list.

"Samurai Son" sounded better tonight... Can't tell much definitively, again from a phone recording, but it seems more organic, more natural.

Here's a sample from a video shared on FB by C. Pantelis.

Looks like it was a nice show. I like that setlist, though I'm a bit saddened they dropped Hide Your Heart - them playing this during recent shows was kinda surprising.
