Mike Skinner’s The Streets project made a joyous return this week as the band played their first live show in seven years.
Taking over Berlin’s Heimathafen Neukölln venue for the first date in the band’s greatest hits tour, eager fans captured the show via social media – documenting The Streets' return to top form through a slew of excitable videos.
Taking to Instagram, another attendee posted the show’s set list, which featured hits spanning the band’s diverse back-catalogue. Ending the show with fan-favourite 'Dry Your Eyes’, the encore included tunes ‘Weak Become Heroes, Fit But You Know It’ and new track ‘Boys Will Be Boys’.
Other cult cuts such as ‘Has It Come To This?’ and ‘Everything Is Borrowed’ were also performed live.
Discussing the tour earlier this year, Skinner stated:
“I’ve missed tour buses very much. Which is the least of the reasons why I have decided to tour The Streets again. The other thing I’ve missed is trying to think up what I’m going to say in the gap between the songs. When you DJ they tell you that you don’t need a tour bus and you don’t need to think up things to say between the songs. But seriously, it’s been long enough."
