SLEEP WELL BEAST
The National‘s tour in support of their latest release Sleep Well Beast made its New York City stop last night at Forest Hills Stadium in Queens. When your career spans across 7 albums, you have a ton of choices as far as songs go, but the crowd seemed ready for whatever tunes they may hear. We all have a favorite record from The National but whichever album that is for you, the band did not disappoint.
Kicking things off with “Nobody Else Will Be There,” they certainly played a good chunk of songs from Sleep Well Beast but they went on to play 24 songs in total pulling fan favorites from their very first album to the most recent. I would have liked to hear more from my favorite record of theirs, Boxer but it was the Sleep Well Beast tour after all.
