They debut 'Cornerstone' in New Jersey
Arctic Monkeys gave a track from their upcoming ‘Humbug’ album its live debut at All Points West this weekend.
The band performed Saturday evening (August 1) at Liberty State Park, in front of a crowd sporting bikini tops and sunglasses as opposed to the previous day’s soggy, poncho-clad audience.
In addition to older tracks such as ‘Brianstorm’, ‘This House Is A Circus’ and ’If You Were There, Beware’, the band previewed several tracks from ’Humbug’, including ‘Potion Approaching’ and ‘Cornerstone’, which frontman Alex Turner said was a special treat for the US audience.
“We’ve never played this one before, but you deserve it,” Turner quipped, and asked “Is everybody looking forward to Tool? That’s what I wanna know.”
The band’s 50-minute set included live favourites like ‘I Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor’ and ‘Do Me A Favour’, closing out their set with new single ‘Crying Lightning’.
