Pavement Stage First Reunion Show
Rockers Pavement stunned fans with their first show in more than 10 years on Monday (01Mar10), playing 25 of their hit songs.
The cult band took to the stage at Auckland Town Hall in New Zealand and performed some of their best known hits, including Stereo and Shady Lane.
Guitarist Scott Kannberg opened up last week (25Feb10) about a string of 2010 reunion shows the band has lined up - revealing that he and his bandmates were "nervous" during rehearsals.
He said, "We recently had two good weeks of practice in Portland (Oregon). It was the first time some of us had been in the same room together for close to 10 years. I think we all were a little nervous. It started off pretty rough, except for our drummer who probably practised the most.
"But, by the time we had finished, most of the 40-plus songs we had rehearsed were sounding pretty good. We're really looking forward to the year ahead and seeing all the fans out there digging the music makes it all worthwhile."
Pavement are also set to perform at All Tomorrow's Parties festival in Britain in May (10) and Central Park Summerstage in New York in September (10). The band split in 1999.
