Beck fans in London had an eventful Sunday after the alt-rock star performed a surprise show at the Omeara where he previewed his upcoming album Colors. The show was announced earlier in the day via Twitter, as the veteran rocker tweeted out “All the #Colors live."
According to NME, the intimate show featured Beck performing his new single “Up All Night” for the very first time, as well as several songs from his Grammy-winning 2014 album Morning Phase. He also played fan favorites like “Devil’s Haircut,” “E-Pro,” “Think I'm in Love” and “Loser,” while covering Gary Numan’s “Cars,” Donna Summer’s “I Feel Love,” and “London Calling” by The Clash.
Elsewhere in the show, the L.A. native spoke about Tom Petty’s tragic passing and acknowledged how short life can seem at times.
“I’m feeling a bit sentimental,” Beck reportedly told the crowd. “Maybe it’s that time of year. Maybe it’s because I got to see Tom Petty play his last show last week. It puts all of these moments in perspective, so I really appreciate being here. It’s all a fleeting thing.”
