Vampire Weekend continued their fall tour dates on Wednesday night with a performance at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, and the group welcomed the trio of sisters from LA-based group HAIM to punctuate the set.
The band fit plenty of tracks from their newest studio album, Father of the Bride, into the setlist, like opening number “Bambina,” “Unbearably White” and lead single “Harmony Hall,” along with three guest-aided cuts from the LP. First up was “This Life” with all three Haim sisters—Danielle, Este and Alana—followed by “Hold You Now” featuring a duet between Danielle Haim and Vampire Weekend frontman Ezra Koenig (Danielle also appears on multiple FOTB tracks). The middle Haim sister would later return for the set-closing “Jerusalem, New York, Berlin.” The band also offered an extended, seven-song encore that included three requests from the crowd, one being a cover of Thin Lizzy’s “The Boys Are Back in Town.”
Check out the full setlist below, along with fan-shot video of the collaborations. Next up for Vampire Weekend is a show tonight in San Diego. See the band’s full schedule here.
