The European Tour has kicked off from Germany with three shows (Hamburg, Berlin and Cologne). The smallest show in years (for approx. 50 attendees) in Luxembourg was held yesterday and tonight Mew will play in Belgium. Here are the last two setlists if you don’t mind spoilers.
Reprise / New Terrain / Introducing Palace Players / Circuitry of the Wolf / Chinaberry Tree / Hawaii / Hawaii Dream / Am I Wry? No / 156 / White Lips Kissed / Uda Pruda / Silas the Magic Car / Sometimes Life Isn’t Easy / Beach / Comforting Sounds —– Special / The Zookeeper’s Boy
Reprise / Hawaii / She Spider / Am I Wry? No / 156 / White Lips Kissed / Uda Pruda / Special (Long Version) / The Zookeeper’s Boy / Sometimes Life Isn’t Easy / Apocalypso / Saviours of Jazz Ballet / Beach —– Comforting Sounds
Silas the Magic Car was written on the Luxembourg setlist as well, but was not played. The show itself was quickly moved to a smaller venue and (as previously mentioned) it was definitely the tiniest European gig Mew have played in years. Beach is longer live than on the album (there is a solo in between the last two choruses) and surprisingly… Repeaterbeater, being the most current music video, has become a live rarity pretty fast. According to various sources, the supporting acts were Siva (Berlin), Davidsson (Cologne) and Mutiny on the Bounty (Luxembourg), Hamburg show didn’t have any.
“Thank you so much, Germany! That was superb! These are the kinds of experiences that make me wonder why we don’t play there more often!?” – Jonas Bjerre (Mewwire / Twitter)
