Beck opens his own show in Detroit after support act cancels at last-minute
Beck found himself in a unique situation while in Detroit on Saturday night. As Billboardreports, the scheduled opening act, The Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger, canceled just hours before doors were to open at Fox Theatre. Fortunately, Beck found a quality last-minute replacement: himself. The acclaimed singer-songwriter kicked off his show with a 10-song, 40-minute set “focused on quieter and more melodic material.” After a short intermission, he and his band then returned for a second, 16-song electric set featuring both greatest hits (“Devil’s Haircut”, “Where It’s At”) and rarities (“Get Real Paid”).
Set 1: The Golden Age / Blackbird Chain / Lost Cause / Say Goodbye / Dead Melodies / Country Down / Heart Is a Drum / Wave / Waking Light / Blue Moon
Set 2: Devil’s Haircut / Black Tambourine / Soul of a Man / The New Pollution / Qué Onda Güero / Hell Yes / Get Real Paid / Modern Guilt / I Think I’m in Love > I Feel Love (Donna Summer cover) / Soldier Jane / Girl / Loser / E-Pro
Encore: Sexx Laws / Debra / Where It’s At > One Foot In The Grave > Where It’s At
