Band finish play third night at O2 Academy Brixton

Interpol wrapped up their 2010 European tour by completing a three-night London residency last night (December 8) in front of a crowd that included Arctic Monkeys.

The band rounded off their final night at the O2 Academy Brixton this week by playing a set that mixed songs from their recent self-titled album with those from across their entire career.

Joined by bassist Dave Pajo and keyboard player Brandon Curtis – frontman with Secret Machines – on their first full UK tour, frontman Paul Banks paid tribute to the band’s UK fans who had supported their run at the iconic London venue.


“Thanks for been here, night three, it’s been really something for us!” he told the crowd.

The singer also bigged up tour support band Surfer Blood and newcomer Anna Calvi, who had joined them for the London shows.

Interpol played:

‘Say Hello To The Angels’
‘Hands Away’
‘Rest My Chemistry’
‘Length Of Love’
‘Summer Well’
‘The Heinrich Maneuver’
‘Memory Serves’
‘Obstacle 1’
‘The New’
‘Slow Hands’
‘Not Even Jail’

The band are set to return to the UK in the spring.
