Guided by Voices just wrapped up the first leg of their tour marking the return of Doug Gillard to the fold. They played Chicago’s Metro on Saturday (9/3) and their 52-song set featured a mix of GBV favorites, plus songs by Pollard’s other bands Boston Spaceships and Ricked Wicky, as well as Pollard solo cuts, and a cover of The Who’s “Baba O’Riley.” The show opened with “Royal Cyclopean” which is a song by Pollard and Gillard’s new project ESP Ohio. Setlist from the Metro show is below and pictures (including ones of openers Broncho and Jason Narducy’s band Split Single) are in the gallery above.
