A Perfect Circle 7/26/11

APC 11

As evidenced by the fact that A Perfect Circle played 10 of the 12 songs off of their 2004 album eMOTIVe, this was essentially a tour that never happened back when the album was new. I had not seen them since 2004 right before I moved from Portland to San Diego about seven months before eMOTIVe came out. The only new music we got to hear was the song “By and Down” that they closed the night with.

Although I respect their reworkings of an eclectic collection of politically charged songs I do not think I am alone in saying that an album of covers is not my favorite A Perfect Circle material. Despite my feelings about eMOTIVe the price of admission was worth its weight in gold when they played “The Noose” and “The Package.”

SETLIST: “Annihilation,” “Imagine,” “Weak and Powerless,” “The Hollow,” “What’s Going On,” “People Are People,” “The Outsider,” “Rose,” “Peace, Love and Understanding,” “When the Levee Breaks,” “The Noose,” “3 Libras,” “The Package,” “Gimmie Gimmie Gimmie,” “Magdalena,” “Passive,” “Counting Bodies Like Sheep To The Rhythm of the War Drums,” “Fiddle And The Drum,” “By and Down”
