Special Edition: New A Perfect Circle Song, APC in Detroit

Friday night I got to see the most awesome A Perfect Circle concert I've ever been to.  Howerdel was in rare form and James Iha was excellent as always.  They played the set list they've been playing throughout the 2011 tour in this order:

1. Annihilation
2. Imagine
3. Weak and Powerless
4. The Hollow
5. What's Going On
6. People Are People
7. The Outsider
8. Peace, Love and Understanding
9. When The Levee Breaks
10. The Noose
11. 3 Libras
12. Gravity
13. Gimmie, Gimmie, Gimmie
14. Orestes
15. Passive
16. Counting Bodies Like Sheep....
17. Fiddle and Drum
18. By and Down (new)

Here's the video for By and Down:

We had 90 minutes of pure vintage was freaking awesome!  James Iha stole some thunder with his terrific rhythm guitar work and keyboard skills.  And who could forget Maynard Keenan off in the corner like a dark scarecrow?  Wicked.

Best song of the evening was "Counting Bodies Like Sheep..."!  They cranked it up, even though it was towards the end of the show and really brought it home for the crowd. 

I hope to god they come out with some of that new material they've been working on soon....if "By and Down" is any indication of how good it will be.  And I want to see them again.  And again.  And again.

Here's the local review for the show here...they loved it as much as I did.  

Come back to Detroit, APC!
