Pulp began their highly-anticipated 2023 reunion tour in Bridlington last night (May 26) – see footage, setlist and reaction below.Last summer, frontman Jarvis Cocker confirmed that the band would be hitting the road next year for their first gigs together since 2012, with a UK reunion tour then confirmed in October.Alongside gigs in London, Sheffield and more, Pulp will also appear at numerous UK festivals this summer including Neighbourhood Weekender, Latitude and TRNSMT.Last month, drummer Nick Banks teased that the setlists for the gigs would please “deep cut obsessives” of the band – alongside the usual run of greatest hits, and the Bridlington show saw the band play songs from across their career.Beginning with ‘I Spy’, the reunited Sheffield heroes then played the likes of ‘Disco 2000’, ‘Dishes’ and ‘Do You Remember the First Time?’ before returning for two encores that featured hits ‘Common People’ and ‘Mis-Shapes’.
The gig then concluded with a rendition of ‘Glory Days’.See footage and reaction from the show, alongside the full setlist, below.Pulp are backkk pic.twitter.com/pQPzPKOXa8— Tommy (@tommyfr96) May 26, 2023Best version of Disco 2000 I’ve ever heard. @welovepulp are going to blow you away this summer.
