Pavement’s Reunion Tour Starts In New Zealand (Video)


    Pavement’s long-awaited reunion tour kicked off yesterday in Auckland, New Zealand, and it was reported as awesome. Which seems about right. The set list has been debated amongst fans, but below I’ve included it for your dissection. It looks a lot like the track list to their greatest hits comp, which also seems about right. As you can tell above, there is video of the excellent “Range Life” (from Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain) embedded. There are some other videos floating around, as well. Hit YouTube if you’re interested (I’m betting you already did if you are). The band also recently announced a handful of additional U.S. dates for the tour, and those are right here.
