New York’s own prog/alt rock favorites Coheed and Cambria have concluded their U.S. spring tour that saw them performing their iconic third album, Good Apollo, I’m Burning Star IV: From Fear Through The Eyes of Madness, in full at every non-festival stop on the run.
The journey (titled NEVERENDER GAIBSIV) made an appearance in New York City for two concerts at Terminal 5, with the first (a sold out affair) having gone down on May 5 with support act The Deer Hunter, and the second (marking the trek’s grand finale) having taken place last night, May 22, with openers Thank You Scientist and Mutoid Man.
We caught last night’s show at T5 and, as promised, Coheed delivered all fifteen tracks off of GAIBSIV, dispensing legendary crowd-pleasers such as “Welcome Home,” “Ten Speed (of God’s Blood & Burial)” and “The Suffering.” The band even threw in a beefy encore for good measure, dishing out “Island” off of The Color Before the Sun, “Delirium Trigger” from The Second Stage Turbine Blade and “In Keeping Secrets of Silent Earth: 3” off of the LP of the same name, before gracefully making their final bow.
Fans who made it out early to the show were treated to sets from Mutoid Man, who played tracks from their impending new album War Moans, plus more, and Thank You Scientist, who focused primarily on songs from their latest offering Stranger Heads Prevail, which can be found via Coheed frontman Claudio Sanchez‘s imprint Evil Ink Records.
C&C will now ship overseas for gigs in Europe and the UK (see all dates). Scroll through below for our full photographic coverage from last night’s gathering in NYC.
