Last night (November 23), The Vaccines played the second of three nights at London’s O2 Academy Brixton as part of their current arena tour.
The quartet, bolstered by live keyboardist Tim Langham, were joined on the night by Lambeth lads Palma Violets and New York City psych trio Sunflower Bean.
Justin Young and his band played 21 songs during the performance, including a handful of tracks they now rarely air. ‘Tiger Blood’ and ‘Wolf Pack’ were amongst those early tracks that made it into the setlist last night.
Elsewhere, the band played dropped tracks from latest album ‘English Graffiti’, such as opener ‘Handsome’ and ‘Dream Lover’.
The band have been asking their fans to vote for deep cuts to be played during the set, with ‘Blow Your Mind’ (sung by bassist Arni Arnasson) winning over ‘Radio Bikini’.
The previous night at the same venue had seen ‘We Are Happening’ aired in the encore for its first appearance since 2012.
The Vaccines will finish their UK tour with a third and final night at O2 Academy Brixton on Thursday night (November 26), where they’ll be joined by Palma Violets and The Big Moon.
