Echo and the Bunnymen

In the last few months they’ve been extensively touring, playing their first two albums in their entirety each night: 1980’s Crocodiles and 1981’s Heaven Up Here. It has been very successful thus far, and in May, they bring the Crocodiles & Heaven Up Here Tour to the U.S. It’s a real treat for fans who’ve been there since the beginning. Or fans like myself who dove into the entire discography and cherished these records years after their release. But does playing two entire albums every night wear them out?

“Well, we’ll play both records in their entirety, then go offstage for a few, then come back and play more songs. Songs that aren’t on either of those records, just ones we want to play anyway. It’s a long show. It doesn’t feel exhausting vocally; it’s a pleasure really, and we all get a real thrill from it. I don’t feel tired on stage. It’s all split up; we play slower songs to relax a little then dive into rougher songs. There’s an almost physical ebb and flow to it. Honestly, I could have a broken back, but once I’m on stage I don’t feel anything else,” said Ian McCulloch to the Aquarian Weekly

That tour, with Kelley Stoltz, came to NYC for shows at Irving Plaza on Friday and Saturday night. Pictures from the first night, and both setlists, below…
