The Cars Cruise Denver’s Fillmore Playing New Album [VIDEO]
Did you catch their show? Let us know what you thought of it.
The Cars played the Fillmore Auditorium in Denver over the weekend, the fourth stop on their 11-date May tour in support of their first album in nearly 24 years.
Move Like This was released last week on cd and vinyl and sounds a lot like The Cars of old. Ric Ocasek wrote all the new songs and the band is all the original members except bassist Benjamin Orr who died in 2000; Elliot Easton on guitar, David Robinson playing drums and Greg Hawkes on keyboards and filling in on bass.
In a Rolling Stone review of their Hollywood Palladium concert, the second stop on their tour, their live show was described as “ferocious.” They opened with “Let the Good Times Roll” and during the 75-minute performance played favorites like “You Might Think” and “My Best Friend’s Girl” plus much of their new material including “Blue Tip,” “Sad Song” and “Keep On Knocking.”
During a two-song encore The Cars played “Moving in Stereo,” which was a little bumpy at first according to the reviewer, Steve Appleford, and afterwards Ric Ocasek commented; “We’re going to learn that someday.”
They’ll have some time to practice it in concert as their tour continues on Tuesday, May 17, in Minneapolis.
