The National Headline Barclays Center in Brooklyn (Setlist)

The National headlined Barclays Center on June 5, 2013
  |   Comments

The National played a headlining arena show at Barclays Center in Brooklyn last night and played a 24-song set that again draws heavily on songs from their brand new album Trouble Will Find Me.

The setlist doesn't differ much from what was played in Providence, RI the previous evening but added a few songs to make for a longer show. "Heavenfaced" from TWFM and the High Violet standout "Vanderlyle Crybaby Geeks" were the additional songs, the latter closing the encore as it did so often during the High Violet tour. "Fireproof" was dropped and "Humiliation" was added, marking the other change in the songs between these first two shows. The sequence was toyed with a little but the overall arch of the show remained the same.

The show was broadcast on SiriusXMU, which I tragically don't have so I was unable to hear it. I'm hoping a bootleg of this shows up somewhere soon as I'd love to hear how these new songs sound live without having to wait until my show in September at Ryman Auditorium in Nashville.
