I have a feeling they're keeping it for Side B or whatever comes next.

I mean, I know you're being facetious, but you bring up a good point. How many people going to Incubus shows have never seen them before and would be upset if they didn't play their biggest songs? I may live in a bubble, but I feel like most of the people who go have seen them a couple of times and are not going to be upset if they don't play Drive. I sure wouldn't. Festivals I can understand, but headlining?

It seems their setlist have been becoming more and more by the numbers and almost exclusively singles recently, which sucks because it makes me less excited to see them knowing they're going to play an almost identical setlist all the time.


I remember walking out of this gig, which I thought was an incredible setlist for the time: https://www.setlist.fm/setlist/incubus/ ... 185aa.html

A guy a few people behind me was accusing them of being arrogant for not playing Drive, Wish You Were Here, etc. which were all played the previous night.

Can amyone copy and paste the text of this review? For some reason, probably the new pricacy regulations, I can't visit this website.

If there’s anything left of Brandon Boyd after his performance at Battery Park Saturday night, pick it up.

The lead singer for Incubus attacked every one of the band’s numbers with the kind of force you’d see in a live television concert. His voice – like a tuning fork ringing out over the crowd – was as strong and solid as fans remembered it to be 20 years ago.

While Boyd didn’t bother much with banter – he teased a couple of times before launching into a song that played off his questions: “Are you having fun?” before “No Fun” – but kept the details to a minimum.


Indeed, if you were to rely solely on the Hard Rock appearance, you wouldn’t get the irony and sarcasm that’s laced in the songs’ lyrics.

Instead, you’d marvel at Boyd’s stamina and the band’s ability to conjure moods from a number of different periods. A psychedelic moment here, a techno beat there and a lot of teases.

Before every song, either guitarist Mike Einziger or drummer Jose Pasillas would toy with the audience. Then Boyd’s eclectic phrasing would take over and suddenly, they’d be into something you’d heard for years, sans the build-up.

Boyd played drum intros on “Megalomaniac,” letting the show’s lighting designer take over some of the frenzy. While the stage just had a handful of screens to help set the mood (consider them big-screen TVs artfully arranged), the lights finished the effect.

An acting career doesn’t seem that far out of reach for the ever-moving Boyd. He found a way to work every syllable in “State of the Art” and played off the red light that bathed him during “Pardon Me.”


Einziger, Pasillas, bassist Ben Kenney and Chris Kilmore capitalized on their moments but couldn’t wrest the spotlight. Boyd was solidly in charge.

Newcomers lovelytheband opened the concert a good 15 minutes before it was slated to start. Lead singer Mitchy Collins said it was an honor to be on the same bill as Incubus, particularly since he and his bandmates were heavily influenced by its work.

While it was hard to connect the two, the Los Angeles-based musicians were fun and bouncy, able to win over an audience that probably hadn’t heard of them. Playing cuts from their upcoming debut album (out in August), they hammered home the value of friendship (in several songs) and scored with “Broken,” the single that got them on the radar. “These Are My Friends” could be a strong introduction for others.

The night, though, belonged to Boyd, who’s ready for just about anything.

Thanks. Funny how a bunch of reviews mention Brandon's singing being as strong as fans will remember from twenty years ago, yet all the fans hear he is struggling more than he ever did on a tour with certain parts. (Also his strongest vocals were ten years ago)

Yeah, I felt the praise was a little over the top myself. I saw some clips from this show and thought most was really good, though. No major issues.

I agree that the Light Grenades/Monuments and Melodies era was a great one for Brandon, vocally. He was probably the most consistent during that time. With that being said, one of my favorite shows I like to listen to is from 2012, I believe the show was in Austria. Vocal-wise, he absolutely nails all of the high note songs. I absolutely love that one.

It's with certain songs you can hear it: Nimble Bastard, usually the first line of Wish You Were Here, sometimes in Anna Molly. But songs like Nice To Know You, Pardon Me or Circles are usually solid.

Tomorrow at 00:00 (GMT+1), you can watch Incubus play their one hour festival set at Pukkelpop festival at the link above. If anybody is able to rip the stream or at least the audio, that would be awesome!

EDIT: 17-08 Incubus is going on in about 8 hours, but suddenly they have been removed from the streaming schedule by Pukkelpop. Asked them on twitter what's up. Hopefully they'll be back on soon.

Thanks for the heads up Jelger!
