Well worth a watch. Wow, I didn't know they had a proper string section for This Is Hardcore. Not sure they had ever done that before live.
Had to laugh at the intro to Babies when Jarv gears-up to do the "two guitarists doing their parts close-up facing each other" thing with Hawley. Poor Mark duly takes off his guitar and heads over to his keyboard!

I think it would have made more sense from a financial perspective for TCT to charge/ask for donations if you want to "unlock" the full concert to view but maybe they only did post-production and editing work on these particular songs.

Just got round to watching this. What an amazing performance of TIH. Why the hell they dont do an album tour, I dont know. Take your pick from any of His N Hers, Different Class, or Hardcore - given the orchestral backing, and they would sound absolutely stunning. Ive seen James, and The Lightning Seeds doing this - and its simply mindblowing.

I guess it was hard enough to get everyone together for a few dates back in 2012/2013. The Divine Comedy were/are planning to do their 10 of their first 11 LPs (excluding debut) with string section last/next September over 5 consecutive nights.

Over 3 nights, Pulp could do...

Separations/Intro

His n Hers/Different Class

Hardcore/We Love Life

The Stranglers and From The Jam do similar with their old albums, playing them in their entirety before a second half of hits.

The Divine Comedy is essentially just Hannon and hired help. Pulp are a collection of wilful buggers, (possibly Nick excluded). That said, they apparently rehearsed 70+ songs ahead of the reunion so in theory it could have been done. They played DC almost in its entirety anyway during most reunion shows. An Intro/HnH or Hardcore/Life night would be great though.

70+ songs - that is almost everything!

Separations 9 + Intro 9 + His n Hers 10 + Different Class 12 + Hardcore 12 + We Love Life 11 = 63

Pretty sure they said that in one of the few interviews they did in 2011. Obviously some b-sides and a smattering of the 80s stuff too would account for some of the total (remember, even Back To LA got an airing in 2012!).

Just done a quick tally from Setlist FM of the number of songs they did in 2011-12. 46 apparently.

Be careful what you wish for. The Damned have reformed the original line up to play their first two (not altogether great) LPs and whatever else they recorded at the time live. A mere 77/ticket!

Dont imagine a reformed Pulp circa 1986 playing Freaks, but I would probably pay to see them. As for IT....
