Although Pulp's too-short U.S. tour kicks off tonight (Apr. 10) at Radio City Music Hall, the reunited Britpop legends rocked another New York venue -- the set of "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" -- with a two-song performance on Monday night.
With the dapper Jarvis Cocker leading the way, Pulp tore through their "Different Class" classic "Common People" on the "Fallon" broadcast, and then offered "This Is Hardcore" b-side "Like a Friend" as a web-only exclusive. Cocker donned a guitar for the latter song, but for "Common People," the frontman was content playing air guitar and pointing to various crowd members as representatives of the song's title.
After playing Radio City Music Hall on Tuesday and Wednesday nights, Pulp will head to the West Coast for both weekends of Coachella, performing at the Indio, Ca. fest on April 13 and 20. The group will also perform at the Warfield in San Francisco on April 17.
Pulp reunited in 2011 after a nine-year hiatus, bringing Cocker, drummer Nick Banks, keyboardist Candida Doyle, bassist Steve Mackey, violinist/guitarist Russell Senior and guitarist Mark Webber back together. The band's final album, "We Love Life," was released in 2001.
