The band will tour the United States and Canada until the end of the year in support of new album ‘Being Funny In A Foreign Language’, and debuted three songs from the album live for the first time at the tour opener in Uncasville, Connecticut on Thursday night.

With a stunning new stage design set inside a house across two floors, the band played the majority of the new album before an encore of sorts, featuring some of their biggest hits. They also debuted a striking piano-based version of 2018 track ‘I Like America & America Likes Me’.

See footage and the full setlist from last night’s show below.
