Beck returns to London to storm Camden's Electric Ballroom
Beck stormed London last night, playing a career-spanning set at the Electric Ballroom in Camden. Check out footage and the setlist below.
“Think of tonight as a celebration,” Beck told the sold-out crowd, looking ahead to his new record being released at midnight. “We’re gonna start slow – think of us as opening for ourselves.”
He then led through a number of his more tender acoustic-led numbers, largely from his GRAMMY-winning album ‘Morning Phase’, before kicking into a high octane dance-rock set with ‘Devil’s Haircut’.
As well as performing ‘Colors’ title track live for the first time, he also aired ‘Up All Night’ and ‘Wow’ from the record – along with recent one-off single ‘Dreams’. Other highlights included ‘Black Tambourine’, ‘The New Pollution’, ‘E-Pro’ and ‘Girl’ – with the crowd remaining as animated as the band throughout the flawless, hit-packed set.
During the now traditional breakdown during ‘Where It’s At’ where the band perform segments of covers to introduce each member, Beck and the band aired brief renditions of Talking Heads’ ‘Once In A Lifetime’, Tom Petty’s ‘American Girl’ and ‘London Calling’ by The Clash among others.
Beck’s setlist was:
Heart Is a Drum
Go It Alone
Think I’m in Love
The New Pollution
Qué Onda Güero
Colors (Live Debut)
Up All Night
Where It’s At
One Foot in the Grave
Beck’s new album ‘Colors’ is out now.
