Honda Civic Tour 2012: Incubus @ Palace of Auburn Hills 8/21/12 (Photos, Review & Setlist)

By Alexis Simpson

We were especially psyched to see Incubus perform after getting the chance to participate in a group interview with Brandon Boyd and Chester Bennington and reviewing Incubus’ new HQ Live album. Incubus has their fair share of “popular” songs that fair weather fans will appreciate live, but their less radio-friendly music needs to be listened to multiple times in order to better appreciate their psychedelic instrumentation and thoughtful lyrics. Incubus’ set reached a high point Tuesday night with the songs “Anna Molly” and the fun mashup of Lionel Richie’s “Hello” and Incubus’ “Made for TV Movie.” The stage show featured a small video camera that rotated giant images of each performer which was a clever way of showcasing each of the band members and adding to the visual appeal of the performance on the Palace’s grandiose stage. Brandon Boyd’s taut physique, Jesus hair and ethereal aura make him a formidable frontmen. Incubus has been around for 20 years now and their Detroit performance served as a reminder as to why they are so highly respected.

    Great review, Alexis. Wish I could have been there!

    Incubus recently released an official bootleg of this show, which I reviewed here. I thought you and your readers might want to check it out if they were interested in this concert.
