Last night saw Interpol kick off their run of 2018 UK and European headline tour dates with a career-spanning set at London’s Royal Albert Hall. Check out photos, footage and the setlist below.
Touring in support of their acclaimed 2018 album ‘Marauder‘, the band performed the first of their two-night sold out residency at the iconic capital venue.
Aside from joking after having to re-start ‘Say Hello To The Angels’ due to a mistake in the intro, the NYC trio kept banter was kept to a minimum as they led through highlights from their latest album as well as fan favourite cuts from their first five records.
With a fevered response from the crowd on highlights including ‘All The Rage Back Home’, ‘NYC’, ‘The Rover’, ‘Not Even Jail’, and ‘Slow Hands’, the peak came with the entire audience taking to their feet for the rush that came with the closer ‘Obstacle 1’.
Reviewing the show, NME concluded: “The bold and jarring cuts from ‘Marauder’ now sit so elegantly alongside the elegiac grace of their earlier work. The set is a thrilling and cinematic journey in which their enigmatic class subtly reveals itself. This band belong in a setting as regal as this. All hail the kings of New York.”
