The Smile kicked off their North American tour on Monday night (11/14) at Providence's Veterans Memorial Auditorium. Spread out across the stage in a row -- Thom Yorke on the left, drummer Tom Skinner on the right and Jonny Greenwood in the middle -- the band played every song from their debut album, A Light for Attracting Attention, save for "Open the Floodgates," as well as a handful of unreleased songs that have been in live rotation for a while. Robert Stillman, who appears on the album and is opening on the tour, joined the band for "Colours Fly" and "You Will Never Work in Television Again" which closed out the main set.

The three-song encore began with two unreleased songs, "The Same" and "Bending Hectic," and they finished with "Feeling Pulled Apart by Horses," which Thom Yorke released as a solo single in 2009. You can watch video from the Providence show and check out the setlist below.

The Smile play Boston on Wednesday and then hit NYC, where they'll make their US television debut on Thursday (11/17) on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, and then play two nights at Brooklyn's Kings Theatre on Friday (11/18) and Saturday (11/19), and then move to Manhattan's Hammerstein Ballroom on Sunday (11/20) All tour dates are listed below.
