The full setlist is below, with the original appearance of the song in brackets and the shonichi members for the unit songs.

M17 - AKB Festival (Team Surprise)
------DOUBLE ENCORE-----
M18 - UZA (single)

For me, this setlist doesn't sound as interesting as the New Team K one, I am pleased they performed two Team Surprise songs, including one that hasn't even been released yet! Compared to Team K, they chose less songs from other Teams and sister groups, concentrating on Team A. I am pleased to see the inclusion of an SDN song again, but it is funny that it (and First Rabbit) overlap with the Team K setlist. I think captain Mariko chose her song, Ue Kara Mariko, to be included, but since she doesn't perform in the theatre often, I hope Sakiko steps up to take the centre position like she does on one of the choreography videos.
