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.

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.

If he's going to use a vocal track he should prerecord a "live" vocal. Not outright play the song off the album.

that sounds awesome! I think Paul was likely embarrassed by the reaction to the canned vocal, and it sounds like he spent a good amount of time in the past couple of days practicing, he sounds good singing it for real!

Absolutely. I think he understands it was a faux-pas and he's corrected it. Let's all breathe a sigh of relief and move on. :P

Not bad at all. The song has played with attitude and Paul sounds rather ok, he tries to sing it with attitude, simply rocks. Also backing vocals work well.
