And for some fans, the nostalgia even extends to the tickets, with 100 seats for those aged under 25 going on sale for 1,500 yen ($15), the same price as they were 48 years ago, organisers said.

The rest of the tickets for the concert on May 21, part of McCartney's "Out There" world tour, are priced at up to 100,000 yen.

McCartney will also perform at Tokyo's National Stadium on May 17-18 and another sports stadium on May 24 in Osaka, western Japan, the organisers said.

In a video message to Japanese fans ahead of the tour, McCartney said: "Hey, everybody in Japan, hello again. Come on. Let's rock."
