Dead Can Dance at The Beacon Theatre, 8/29/2012
Dead Can Dance

Dead Can Dance played the Beacon Theatre on Wednesday (8/29), their first of two nights at the NYC venue with percussionist David Kuckhermann opening the show. Their 19-song set featured the entirety of their gorgeous new album, Anastasis, with plenty of DCD classics as well, plus a cover of Tim Buckley's "Song to the Siren" (which was most famously done by 4AD all-star group This Mortal Coil which DCD have collaborated with). Dead Can Dance play Beacon Theatre again tonight (8/30) and tickets for tonight's show are still available.

Setlist and more pictures from Wednesday night's show are below.
